We’ll be announcing the winner of our Marshall Hanwell portable loudspeaker contest in a short bit, but if you’re one of those who doesn’t want to rely on luck, here’s a quick rundown of stores where you can buy this amazing treat from Marshall:
Again, in case you didn’t get the memo, this one doesn’t come cheap.
SRP of the Marshall Hanwell loudspeaker is Php34,950. That’s enough dough to buy a Galaxy S4 or even an HTC One – we’re cooking up a review of this, by the way, right this very minute – with change left to nab a Cherry Mobile Android phone as a backup. That’s how expensive this bad boy is.
But hey, if you’ve seriously got the hots for this bad-ass speaker and, more importantly, have the cash, then by all means, go get yourself one. This one’s slathered with awesome sauce for your ears to enjoy, though yeah, we admit, at its price, it could be better.
For our complete take on this, check out our Marshall Hanwell loudspeaker review.
Full press release follows:
HANWELL ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Marshall Headphones, together with Marshall Amplification proudly announce the very first home audio product to bear Marshall’s legendary script logo.
Named Hanwell, this active loudspeaker embodies Marshall’s legacy of loud. Hailing from a line of 50th anniversary products, the Hanwell moves Marshall’s heritage of big stage performance out of the arena, and into your home.
MORE ABOUT THE MARSHALL HANWELL
“In 1962 Jim Marshall developed the first Marshall amplifier in his shop in Hanwell, London, England after taking time to listen to what guitar players wanted and needed,” says Managing Director of Marshall Amplification, Jonathan Ellery. “From that very first amplifier, history was created and Marshall became the most iconic guitar amplifier company in the world.
We have worked in close conjunction with Zound industries to create the first Marshall home audio product, the Hanwell. Named after the birthplace of the first Marshall amp and indeed the company, Hanwell keeps alive Marshall’s tradition of listening to what the customer needs, and then exceeding their expectations.”
Konrad Bergström, President of Zound Industries (parent company of Marshall Headphones) continues, “We are excited to be a part of Marshall’s legendary history. From the launch of Marshall Headphones in 2010, all the way up to the Hanwell, we have worked side by side with Marshall to ensure every detail of every product we develop meets and exceeds the expectations of both Marshall Amplification, and Marshall fans around the world.”
The Sound of Hanwell:
Delivering a sound that resonates with the presence and power of live music, the Hanwell is a carefully crafted machine, designed to attain that trademark Marshall tone. Its dual longthrow woofers produce super lows, and hi-fi tweeters yield sharp extended highs, rendering the sound sharp and clear, like sitting in the front row.
How it Looks:
The Hanwell is housed in a wooden cabinet and clad in black vinyl. It features an analog power switch and controls for volume, bass and treble. The fret cloth and gold logo on the front are borrowed from vintage Marshall Amplifiers. The body is outlined with gold piping for a celebratory effect.
As a tribute to Marshall’s 50-year legacy, each Hanwell is branded with a numbered anniversary edition commemorative badge.
Marshall Hanwell is available at Beyond the Box (One Rockwell and Resorts World), Digital Walker (Shangri-La, Alabang Town Center, SM Aura), Quicksound (Glorietta).
