Audio Pro Addon C3 £250
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.
