The Marshall Stanmore II smart speaker may have a retro design, but it is powered by thoroughly modern technology. There are volume, bass, and treble knobs for people who appreciate fiddling with actual buttons, or, for those who prefer the digital route, you can adjust the sound settings on your phone using Marshall’s app. Plus it’s Alexa-enabled, which means you can use it to control any of your home’s smart features. Along with playing music, once connected to your Wi-Fi, the Stanmore II lets you turn on or off a lamp and set the brew schedule for your morning coffee — just by asking Alexa. And today it’s 38 percent off, or $150 less than its usual price.
