Audio Pro introduces the C10 MkII, a multiroom speaker with the flexibility to be used in conjunction with Audio Pro multiroom systems or with AirPlay 2 and Google Cast.
Audio Pro has unveiled its latest multiroom speaker, the C10 MkII. An evolution of the brand’s award-winning C10 speaker, the C10 MkII widens its streaming capabilities while enhancing its sound quality and overall design. Not only will users be able to create customised multiroom systems using the Audio Pro app, but the latest redesign is compatible with both AirPlay 2 and Google Cast.
“This new triple function comes after customer feedback requested flexibility and choice in how they can enjoy audio via Audio Pro multiroom systems", says Jens Henriksen, CCO at Audio Pro. "Being able to connect Audio Pro speakers with others that use Google Cast or AirPlay 2 provides endless capabilities."
In addition to its new compatibility options, the C10 MkII’s appearance has been upgraded, adding a mesh fabric front for the choice of two designs. Attached with hidden magnets, the speaker’s covering can easily be removed for those who prefer Audio Pro’s classic look. Keep the front on, and the C10 MkII is transformed for an understated, contemporary style.
"The C10 has scooped multiple awards," says Henriksen, "and we expect this to continue with its latest evolution, C10 MkII. Not only has the appearance been enhanced but its acoustics have also been improved, changing the design of the bass reflex port for better flow and updating a number of critical components inside. Not only can this upgraded sound quality be enjoyed through Audio Pro’s multiroom system, but within Apple and Google systems.”
Henriksen continues; “With an increasing number of customers dusting off their old vinyl players, or purchasing a new one for nostalgia, we have also offered restreaming through the new C10 MkII which allows users to connect their turntable directly to the speaker.”
The brand’s popular presets have also been increased, upping the options from its predecessor. “Increasing to six preset buttons, users will be able to save and store even more of their favourite playlists and radio stations at the simple touch of a button without needing to reach for the app”, concludes Henriksen.
