Audio Pro G10 AirPlay 2, Google Cast Smart Speaker
Swedish audio brand, Audio Pro, introduces its AirPlay 2 and Google Cast compliant smart speaker.
Audio Pro's G10 smart speaker comes in response to increasing customer demand for AirPlay 2 and Google Cast compatibility on top of the multi-room tech the company is already known for.
Jens Henriksen, CCO at Audio Pro told StereoNET:
Whilst still creating a speaker with this [multi-room] compatibility, we thought it appropriate to go all the way with the additional integration of the Google Assistant feature, allowing users convenient voice-activated control over their audio, simply by speaking to it. The result was the Audio Pro G10.
Previously the company has offered voice-control via Amazon Alexa, as with its Addon C5A. However, Jens explains, “Through its Google Cast function, the G10 can form a multi-room system with other Google Cast speakers. This invaluably allows voice-activated control over an entire group, or household, of Cast-compatible speakers, even if they do not directly possess a built-in Google Assistant function.”
Thanks to its small format, the G10 is extremely easy to place around the home or any other setting. Additionally, it can also be mounted on a wall or contemporary ceiling rail. On the latter point, Jens adds, “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.”
Going forward, Audio Pro commit to the integration of Google Cast and AirPlay 2 as standard in future products launches. Of course, the company also retains its own multi-room system as an alternative for those who prefer this solution.
The Audio Pro G10 is available in two shades of grey from mid-November at an RRP of USD $250 / SGD $399.
