Just before the big Drumfire, the Addon C10 is the most imposing loudspeaker in the new multiroom range from manufacturer Audio Pro. The latter had pleasantly surprised us with his Addon T3 for his first appearance in our labs. Let’s see if this larger and more versatile model, launched at 350 €, also performs well.
Audio Pro Addon C10
Introductory price 350 €
After Addon T3, Audio Pro continues to surprise us with this Addon C10. This sedentary connected speaker is certainly not the best equipped on the market in terms of connectivity and features, but it delivers a superb listening experience. It remains to be hoped that the manufacturer will give its application a youthful boost to make the multiroom experience richer and more intuitive.
- Excellent quality sound reproduction.
- Precise, good readability of the soundstage.
- Excellent power / size ratio.
- Easy to use.
- Robust, meticulous workmanship.
- A somewhat austere mobile application not fully translated into French.
- Few indications.
- Some lack of connectivity (multipoint Bluetooth, optical input, USB port for audio playback).
- “Only” monophonic.
As an alternative
Marshall Acton II Voice
Introductory price 299 €
- Speech Recognition
Even if all is not perfect, the Acton II Voice scores essential points. This model will satisfy people looking for a high-performance and classy Google Assistant (GA) sedentary speaker. Although it is one of the few GA speakers to offer a mini-jack input, it remains somewhat limited compared to certain competitors without a voice assistant, such as the Addon C5. It’s up to you to make your choice according to your priorities.
