I'm quite happy with my Audea Trio system. The sound with the trio (two extra speakers) is really good. Set-up was a little more than I expected but since it runs apps I should have expected that. Some of the buttons behave a little different than most devices do, so it's different, not necessarily worse, just different in how they actuate. I haven't even scratched the surface yet with what apps it might run, but the possibilities are probably unlimited. Anything you use an app for could likely be used on this device and with it's clear screen that would include things like recipes, quotes, social media feeds, etc. I'd have preferred a little less plastic look, but that's just cosmetics. The on-board instruction and help manuals are really helpful.
I've listened to a dozen different smart speakers and my Audea Trio is by far the best sounding highest quality smart speaker I've ever heard.
It is the only one that has an integrated equalizer that I can easily increase the volume of the frequencies including low bass and high treble frequencies the way I like my music to sound.
Unlike all other smart speakers that cram a bunch of speakers into one cabinet the Trio has two classic 2-way speakers that I can separate to create an incredible, unmatched crystal clear sound.
And I've become addicted to the remote control because I can simply click a button and control what apps I want to run, skip tracks and control volume.
And the best part, i dont need my phone!
I have the trio set up and the sound is phenomenal! The setup... Not so much. The instructions that came with the unit were good but not the full comprehensive ones that I had to dig around on the website to find.
I like to think myself a tech savvy android user, the audea skin the main unit uses is slightly slow and has a lot of gestures that are different than standard Android devices. But once the Learning curve was passed, it was a great sounding, clean system. It's awesome to have not only music apps, but video apps available to watch on the screen.
Main unit is a little plasticky looking, the unit I had the buttons weren't very responsive.
The companions speakers... Fantastic in every way!! Sound is great, very clean high quality look as well! These guys definitely know how to get great sound!
I'm excited for the company to grow and show us how refined and quality there product can be!
It wasn't until I saw my friend's trio system that I was truly sold. Hearing is believing and there is absolutely nothing comparible! The equalizer provides the ultimate in user customization. It's not just the sound though- this is a full on smart system with incredible versatility. 5 stars from me Audea!
This is a true Hi-Def sound machine with WiFi because Blue Tooth doesn't do hi-def. Add your high quality powered speakers and hear the difference.
Bye Bye Alexa! Audea offers so much more: absolutely incomparable sound quality; plays my stored podcasts; has a perfectly-sized video screen to easily read my online recipes when I'm cooking; and I can even use it for Zoom calls! We are finding new ways to use it every day. Love it.
Awesome sound system. I noticed a big improvement in the sound quality when I adjusted the equalizer on Spotify. I love using the remote because it’s so easy to control all the components that Audea has to offer!
I use several channels of music to stream. Amazon, Apple and sometimes I use Spotify. Once this mini jukebox :) is configured it is seamless and easy to just play my music. I also like the fact I can unplug it and take it to another room with me using the battery.
I added these to my Echo Dot with Alexa from Amazon using the auxiliary cable that comes with the Soundmates. It is the most rich, deep and pure sound I have ever heard. I also own Sonos and several Bose systems. I love those also, but these speakers engineered they way they did are not to be compared. It's like my music has new life!
I've used and mix with different speakers. Yamaha HS8,7,5 | Mackies Mr8,5. And this time I decided to give Audea a try. And all I can say is WOW! The clarity, range, quality and accuracy for what I paid, are incredible, I'll choose them over any other products around this price.
