The Audio Pro range may be small compared to its multi-room rivals, and the app is a little lacking. But for the best sound quality at the price, this system is currently unbeatable. At just £100, the puck-like Link 1 hub turns your hi-fi and other Addon speakers into a simple multi-room system.
As much as anything else, your chosen path for migration to multi-room should be about whose speakers you want around your house. For us, Audio Pro makes that particular decision admirably simple.
It’s facing more competition than ever, but no multi-room offering is as complete or as pleasurable to live with as Sonos, even if it does lack hi-res support (not a deal breaker for us).
Sonos as a system has two big advantages – breadth of choice and simplicity of use. In the time its rivals have been playing catch-up, Sonos has launched a whole family of products and got onside with a long list of streaming services, not to mention nailing the usability aspect of multi-room.
For combining a broad range of very accomplished products with comfortably the most substantial selection of streaming services and the most pleasant and complete user-experience, Sonos remains, for us, the best multi-room option.
