Audio Pro Addon C3 Portable Multiroom Speaker - Grey
About this deal
It makes it much easier to appreciate not only the detail on offer here but also the space in the mix that helps the Addon T3+ avoid becoming crowded or muddled when it is fed denser recordings.
Derived from a multi-award-winning speaker range, the Addon C3 boasts the best sound quality at its price. Twin treble units combined with a dedicated woofer give strong dynamics, punchy bass and natural-sounding vocals. Audio Pro's advanced audio technology and acoustic experience provides a speaker with a big sound from a small box. The usual connections, wired and wireless, are featured, with the A10 having capacity for 3.5mm aux, Bluetooth 4.0, Apple AirPlay, wi-fi andSpotify Connect. It also supports MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC and Apple Lossless formats.
If you are no expert, the sound quality of both of these speakers would feel good to you at their own place. However, Audio Pro C5A provides a little edge to its audio quality with the way they are designed with the addition of twin tweezers that even fill a large room which its amplifying voice. In our minds, the first genuine alternative to Sonos was Bluesound, whose key hook of high-resolution audio support made it our preferred multi-room system for years (as multiple Awards trophies attest).
The unique boom-box style design is easily recognizable from distance. One more thing which is recognizable is the unparalleled sound quality of these speakers. The lineup which starts with ‘C’ is the wifi-enabled version and the ‘T’ models are Bluetooth only. The Audio Pro Addon C3 vs C5 vs C10 are almost similar in appearance except for their size, while the Addon C5A has a volume indicator and a pair of microphones on its head for use with Alexa voice assistant. When you move from T3 to C3, the dimensions are similar, and they all have the sophisticated interface touches we’ve come to expect from Audio Pro. For a wireless speaker at this price, the textured surfaces and embossed leather carry handle are rather sophisticated.Change the source on the speaker to either Line in or AUX depending on where you plugged in the device. 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. Audio Pro A10 is a fairer model to compare with Sonos One as they both have the same cylindrical design, none like the usual designs of the Audio Pro C series. It has the nearly priced same as Sonos one as well.
As a rule, we do comparative testing – ensuring new products are tested against their rivals according to product type, features and price. Almost all the testing is carried out by our team of expert reviewers at our dedicated test rooms. At a single glance, Audio Pro speakers look very bulky and spacious that serves as a huge turnoff. However, if you love your speakers to have that traditional touch like Audio Pro C5A, looks won’t be an issue for you.
Each speaker looks like the face of a ‘koala bear’ from the front. It is a distinguishable body design which is also the driver configuration. Equipped with a pair of 2cm soft dome tweeters and mid/bass drivers (and reflex ports, incidentally) growing in line with the cabinet. The Addon C3 has a 9cm woofer, the Addon C5 and Addon C5A have a 10cm woofer, and the Addon C10 has the highest at 13cm. The Class D optical amplification’s power output increases in equal increments: 15W, 40W, and 80W, respectively. Audio Pro is one such competition that is giving Sonos products a hard time. To the extent, that is known as the best alternative to Sonos speakers, even replacing them at some places. Audio Pro is not a new name as a speaker’s brand. It was in 2017 when Audio Pro launched its multi-room speakers in C series, and it has been in the limelight since then. Moreover, you can use it as a wired as well as wireless speaker with the help of Wifi, Bluetooth, and Audio Pro Multiroom app. Like most Sonos speakers, it can also be mounted on the wall.
