Think of it as musical five-a-side. It begins, of course, with the players. In this test we have selected two wireless speakers from seven of the market’s leading multi-room systems, and tested them, as we always do, on their features, functionality and, most importantly, sonic ability.
But if multi-room is a team sport, it comes down to more than the individual ability of the personnel; those with the best players do not necessarily become the best team. Here, it comes down to how well the speakers work together and how effectively each unit’s sound complements the other, whose fortes make up for their teammate’s weakness, and some money-can’t-buy aspects – in this case, the free app. Is there such a thing as the perfect hi-fi team? This test is our way of finding out.
