This way of Azan is not right. It is an innovation and against Sunnah. It is not sufficient for other mosques to depend on the Azan of only one mosque. Again, the Azan which is called from a centre if it is not given by any Muezzin rather from a recorder then it is also not allowed. Those who do such act are committing sin of forsaking Sunnah:

الاذان سنۃ لاداء المکتوبات بالجماعۃ کذا فی فتاوی قاضیخان و قیل انہ واجب والصحیح انہ سنۃ مؤکدۃ کذا فی اللکافی و علیہ عامۃ المشایخ ، ھکذا فی المحیط (عالمگیری، 1/53)
