Build Quality and Design
Both Marshall Acton and Stanmore are well built and feature their vinyl and brass knobs signature along with retro on/off toggle switch that gives it a very vintage look and feels. The Acton is about 2 inches shorter in length and 1 inch shorter in height than the Stanmore. At 6.6 LBS, it’s also about five pounds lighter than the Stanmore.
The Stanmore is stronger and louder than the Acton because it features a 50 W subwoofer compared to the Acton’s 30 W and 15 W tweeters compared to the Acton’s 10 W tweeters. However, the maximum level of sound pressure on the Acton is slightly higher by 3 dB. The Stanmore also has RCA input while the Acton has only the 3.5 MM aux input.
Both of these speakers are immersive for rock music and sound, but they also work well with other music genres. However, they seem to lack a little in the overall wow factor in the rap genre. Also, the Stanmore tends to have a thicker signature of sound. Both of these speakers are loud enough, and you could fill up a 750 sq. Ft room at just half the maximum volume even with the smaller Acton.
Overall, with either of those iconic speakers that sound great and are sure to turn heads at home or wherever you take them, you couldn’t go wrong. Personally, if the budget weren’t a problem, I’d go with the Marshall Stanmore as I enjoy the fuller minds and like the brighter Acton’s sound better. There are also some reports of frequent drops in Bluetooth connectivity from people who bought the Acton while the Stanmore doesn’t seem to be the case.
