Audio Pro Introduces G10 Smart Speaker
Award-winning audio brand, Audio Pro, has responded to demand for a loudspeaker with both AirPlay 2 and Google Cast compatibility.
The G10 is the latest offering from the Swedish brand, but not its first smart speaker. This time Audio Pro has opted for Google Assistant over Amazon Alexa which it implemented in other previous models.
The G10 joins other Audio Pro models to form a multi-room wireless audio system, and its compact size allows for easy placement. It can also be conveniently mounted on a wall or a contemporary ceiling rail, which Audio Pro says is a unique and increasingly popular feature in today's consumer marketplace.
Jens Henriksen, CCO at Audio Pro, told StereoNET:
Of course, the voice-controlled function facilitates such assembly, but we have been investigating it for some time. Electric rails have been used in public installations for many years, mainly for connection and placement of spotlights. However, we have begun to observe a clear trend also emerging within the home furnishings sector.
In connection with this product launch, it therefore seemed quite natural for us to test the market's response to this new innovative type of audio installation. We have extensive experience of speakers mounted in rails before, but so far only in our business segment for integration into hotels, restaurants, shops etc. We believe that there will soon be a rising desire among consumers to have this type of speaker in their living environment as well.
The Audio Pro G10 is expected to be available in Australia from January 2021; however, Australian pricing has not yet been confirmed. Overseas it will sell for 250 EUR / 250 USD / 225 GBP.
