Marshall’s Woburn Bluetooth speaker has vintage looks at a rock star price

So here’s the thing. A company that made its name for speakers (well, amplifiers technically) capitalized on its brand by diversifying into headphones. The divisions operate mostly independently, and the headphone part is making speakers (again) that are more for your G3, than your Gibson. Today, Marshall headphones introduces Woburn — a Bluetooth speaker that looks like one of the company’s Handwired guitar amps. In further keeping with the Marshall feel, there are analog treble, bass and volume dials, a vinyl covering and gold piping. Mobile rockers will find optical, 3.5mm and RCA inputs around the back of the vintage-looking box, and three internal amps (two times 20W, and one 50W) — along with Bluetooth 4.0 (and aptX support). At $500 (£450 in the UK!) when it hits retailers "this fall," it seems the rock and roll bravado also extends to the price — and let’s hope the sound, too.
