Hot off the press, Audio Pro has just announced the launch of its new C10 MKll multiroom speaker. An upgrade on their award-winning C10, the MkII now allows listeners to create a multiroom sound through AirPlay 2 and Google Cast, as well as the Audio Pro app.
This expansion of streaming capability was a direct response to customer
demand, explains Jens Henriksen, the company’s chief commercial officer.
“This new triple function comes after customer feedback requested
flexibility and choice in how they can enjoy audio via Audio Pro multiroom
systems”, says Henriksen. “Being able to connect Audio Pro speakers with
others that use Google Cast or AirPlay 2 provides endless capabilities.”
Now, I’m only looking at photos at the moment but the MKll look like they will pack a punch. Leave the mesh grille in the box, get that big woofer on show. There are subtle changes to design when compared to the original, and for the better, I think. The smaller metal grilles over the two smaller drivers have been removed, as has the carry handle. Controls remain at the top of the speaker but expanded to 6 preset buttons and It’s likely the same inputs/outputs will be present at the rear.
“The C10 has scooped multiple awards,” continues Henriksen, “and we expect this to continue with its latest evolution, C10 MkII. Not only has the
appearance been enhanced but its acoustics have also been improved,
changing the design of the bass reflex port for better flow and updating a
number of critical components inside. Not only can this upgraded sound
quality be enjoyed through Audio Pro’s multiroom system, but within Apple
and Google systems.”
Hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to try one out and let you guys know how it performs! Audio Pro’s C10 MkII will be available for pre-order at richersounds.com, retailing for £360 in Arctic White, Storm Grey or Coal Black.
