Audio Pro Addon C3 Portable Multiroom Speaker - Grey
About this deal
They time with metronomic precision, but temper it with the kind of dynamic sense that captures rhythmic emphasis nicely. And that dynamic expression is a strong positive over the speakers’ entire performance, able to reflect lavish shifts and subtle nuance alike. It simply does everything right, and without fuss. They keep time with metronomic precision, but with a harmonic sense that nicely catches rhythmic focus. And the speakers’ expressive speech is a strong plus during their entire show, able to convey extravagant changes as well as delicate complexity. It actually does everything correctly and efficiently. On the front panel, you’ll find buttons for source selection – wi-fi, Bluetooth, aux and line-in – volume control, four presets and the 3.5mm analogue input.

The control panel at the top of the speaker allows easy access and clear controls. The only problematic issues are the poor customer service and not so consistent app. If you are just looking for using it wirelessly with a loud sound, this one it is. Also, it doesn’t connect with other series Audio Pro models too, i.e., to say it can only be used as multiroom speakers with its other C series speakers, namely C3, C5, and C5A. We remember hearing the first batch of Audio Pro’s Addon wireless speakers as if it were yesterday, marvelling at the brand’s consistency as it made the step to multi-room without losing any of what made these speakers so infectiously endearing. Each comprises the 'koala bear' driver configuration that has become these speakers’ distinguishing feature, with a pair of 2cm soft dome tweeters and mid/bass drivers (and reflex ports, incidentally) growing in line with the cabinet.Being a member of Audio Pro’s multi-room family, you also get four preset buttons. These can be assigned to either internet radio stations or any playlists you’ve compiled on your music streaming services. In this review, we talked about the best multi-room speakers from Audio Pro. The lineup consists of speakers for all categories. They made the diversification perfectly so that one does not conflict with the other. On one hand, you get the small, portable, and battery-enabled C3 which is perfect for day-to-day use. You can move around with this device and listen to music casually. It is a device for the mass people. The low price point will also help it to gain popularity. As the smaller model of the siblings, the A28 (below) is well suited for shelves, TV benches and other places where a more compact speaker is preferable – and it can also be wall mounted. Audio Pro tells us it is a deceptively powerful pair of speakers, living up to the Audio Pro mantra of 'small in size, big in sound'.

If that doesn’t bother you, going for Audio Pro speakers that less price than Sonos speakers is a good deal to start with. However, when it comes to multiroom-audio speakers, Sonos is still on the top and enjoying its monopoly along with the quality it provides.However, living with the smartphone app is a completely different experience. It’s easy in some ways – only ‘drag and drop’ to partner or separate speakers, either in stereo pairs or multi-room areas, and adjust the bass and treble as required. However, it can be a little buggy at times, and it is definitely constrained in comparison to other competing programs.
