PROS

  • The Archt One can be paired with another Archt One speaker for a master/slave configuration. You can link up to six speakers with AirPlay for multizone setups.
  • The speaker provides an omni-directional sound with more of a sweet spot than regular stereo speaker placement.
  • An Android or iOS companion app is available to automatically optimize the speaker for the room, or to set equalization manually, select sources, or rename the speaker.

CONS

  • It has a high price for a wireless speaker.
  • The Archt One doesn't come with a remote control, although you can use the free Android or iOS app to control it.
  • No battery is available, so it's tethered to a power outlet.
The Archt One is a 360-degree speaker that can fill a room with sound. The speaker contains an amplifier, digital signal processor, and an analog-to-digital converter, along with a three-driver sound array to produce consistent distortion-free sound. You can connect with an Android or iOS device or wire the speaker with USB or to the analog AUX input. The Archt supports pairing with another Archt speaker for stereo configuration; using AirPlay, you can join up to six Archt speakers for multizone coverage. Touch points on the ring raise and lower the volume, and you calibrate the speaker to the room using the Android or iOS app and your phone’s microphone.
