Swedish Hi-Fi firm Audio Pro releases its latest multi room speaker and adds a trio of capabilities to its new C10 MkII loudspeaker.
An upgrade to the initial C10 model, the new iteration takes the brand’s sound quality and design aesthetic and makes some improvements. Gone is the forbear’s rather utilitarian carry strap and in comes additional support for multi room functionality via AirPlay II, Google Cast and Audio Pro’s own control app.
Jens Henriksen, the company’s chief commercial officer, explained that the expansion of streaming capability was a direct response to customer demand, saying, “This new triple function comes after customer feedback requested flexibility and choice in how they can enjoy audio via Audio Pro multiroom systems." He added, "Being able to connect Audio Pro speakers with others that use Google Cast or AirPlay 2 provides endless capabilities."
Multiroom sound is not the only feature that can be customised to the user’s liking, the C10 MkII uses hidden magnets so the speaker’s mesh fabric front can be quickly removed to revert to Audio Pro’s classic look. Keeping the covering in place retains the more understated, contemporary aesthetic.
There are internal changes too, with improved acoustics resulting from changing the design of the bass reflex port for better air flow, and the updating of a number of critical components inside.
For those that are analogue at heart, the C10 can be connected directly to a vinyl record player, combining vintage audio technology with the cutting edge, all the while maintaining Audio Pro’s award-winning sound. Furthermore, the MkII’s preset buttons have also been increased to six from its predecessor, allowing users to save and store their favourite playlists and radio stations for easy access whenever they please, without needing to reach for the Audio Pro app.
Audio Pro’s C10 MkII speaker will be available for pre-order at richersounds.com, retailing for £360 in Arctic White, Storm Grey or Coal Black.
