Au­dio Pro Ad­don C3 £250

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Awards 2018 -

The Au­dio Pro Ad­don C3 is ba­si­cally the multi-room and wi-fi ver­sion of the Ad­don T3. Which means it’s a mighty fine wire­less speaker.

It’s a neat pack­age with at­trac­tive pro­por­tions, a carry han­dle and bat­tery, but isn’t light­weight enough to be carted around in a ruck­sack all day. It’s prob­a­bly more suited to plac­ing on a pa­tio or putting on a desk­top.

The ad­di­tion of wi-fi and multi-room are wel­come, but Au­dio Pro has made a few sac­ri­fices to ac­com­mo­date them. The C3 loses the rear USB port, and in its place you’ll find an eth­er­net socket for hard­wiring it into your home net­work.

The level of re­fine­ment from such a small pack­age is hugely im­pres­sive. It de­liv­ers the lead vo­cal from Chvrches’ Mir­a­cle with a sweet and pure tone. At both high and low vol­umes, the speaker ex­cels, and has no prob­lem fill­ing a de­cent-sized room with qual­ity sound.

The C3 man­ages to sound weighty, delv­ing deep and ren­der­ing each note with de­tail and tex­ture. By multi-room speaker stan­dards, this is a re­mark­ably re­fined per­for­mance.

The Ad­don C3 is an­other su­perb ad­di­tion to Au­dio Pro’s arse­nal of multi-room speak­ers – and a wor­thy win­ner of this Best Buy Award.
