Audio Pro’s A15 takes your multi-room sound to the backyard

The sun came out of its winter slumber and with its latest speaker, Audio Pro decided it wanted to get out of the house and have some fun in the garden.

The A15 is the latest speaker from the Scandinavian audio brand, a portable, rainproof speaker that also supports multi-room connectivity.

The A15 launches this month (March) and features the same fabric-covered faceplate as the A10, G10 (one of our favorite speakers of 2021), A26 and A36, the focus is that the new speaker complements Audio Pro’s latest lineup rather than distracting from it. This cohesiveness from a design standpoint provides an array of options, as you can choose and mix different speakers of different sizes to suit the character of a room while maintaining a cohesive ambience throughout the home.

There’s the aforementioned multi-room support, so as long as your Wi-Fi can extend into your backyard, you can daisy-chain Audio Pro speakers (or others from another brand) to take your music and podcasts to the garden. The A15 can work in an AirPlay 2, Google Cast or Audio Pro multi-room system, giving those with existing speaker setups the choice to slot the A15 into.

Battery life is 11 hours at 50% volume, and if you want to crank up the speaker volume that figure drops to around 8 hours, which is less than the Sonos Move can achieve. With an IPX2 rating, the A15 is protected against splashing water, or more likely British weather, rain. Portability comes with a handle that doubles as the rear speaker port. Playback controls sit on the top of the device, while around the rear is a scattering of physical connections, including what appears to be a sub out and a 3.5mm jack.

Available in white and gray finishes, the Audio Pro A15 has a suggested retail price of €400 / $400 / £350.
