You've made your choice: you want to buy a multi-room speaker. The assortment of multi-room speakers,also known as WiFi speakers, is quite large, which makes the choice more difficult. This is why I'm happy to help you choose a first multi-room speaker. In this article, I explain the 3 best choices for a first multi-room speaker. These speakers have excellent sound quality from other customers and are one of our best-selling speakers.

Still haven't made up your mind?

When making a choice for a multi-room speaker, you must take the following things into account:

  • The use of the speaker: in which room (size, humidity) are you going to use the speaker and do you want to use it separately, multi-room, or in a home cinema setup?

  • The sound: do you want the best sound or is the price-quality ratio sufficient for you?

  • Smart speaker: do you want a speaker that you can control with voice commands?

  • The connectivity: should the speaker have multiple connection options for an MP3 player or headphones, for example? And should the speaker support AirPlay or Spotify Connect?
