The speaker comes with the most unique designs like the textured vinyl cover, and the salt, and pepper fret. You will love the weave design on the front of the speaker, where it has that beautiful Marshall logo.

It has this almost timeless design kind of like the Dodge Challenger. The speaker’s neither made out of plastic nor is it made out of metal; it’s actually made out of it has a wooden frame which helps the sound balance and sound natural.

All the main control buttons are located on the top of the speaker. Starting from the left side, you have a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, two LED lights that are going to indicate what mode you’re in either Bluetooth or using the auxiliary port. There are three brass knobs that you can use to control the volume, bass, and treble.

Next to that, you get a pause and play button and then the power switch. Adjusting any of the volume settings using the brass knobs is just so satisfying. These tactile buttons definitely help with this experience being more memorable.


In terms of connectivity, you have two options connected using Bluetooth 5.0, which is going to give you a solid wireless range of around 30 feet. If that doesn’t work, you can also use it connecting a 3.5-millimeter audio jack. Acton 2 has multi-host functionality, which means you can use two phones. So you got a friend over. He can connect his phone to your speaker, and you can connect your phone, and then you can now switch between the devices that are playing music.

There’s also a Marshall Bluetooth app that you can download on your Android or iOS device to custom tune your own presets or change the presets wirelessly.
