Smart devices such as Alexa and Google Home are increasing in popularity all the time but they might not be the most attractive looking offerings and for those who want to really add a touch of design flair to their side table or shelving units, the SpeakEasy by Como Audio, which is funding on Kickstarter right now, might be just the thing. Great to look at and boasting a highly impressive technological performance, it’s easy to see why it has already flown past half its funding target after just a few days.
The SpeakEasy by Como Audio on Kickstarter is billed as the brand’s newest hi-fi music system which has Google Assistant built-in to deliver all the voice activated awesomeness you could want, with the added benefit of a highly attractive device that will add to the aesthetic appeal of any room you deploy it. This superb piece of technology lets you discover a new way of enjoying your favourite music and it is made for those who want to enjoy the best quality sound, the capacity to control compatible devices throughout the home, and manage every day tasks – all wrapped up in an attractive package.
The Sound of Music
This excellent device from Como Audio will stand out from the crowded market in a number of key areas. Most importantly, it has been specifically designed to play music so the sound quality is superior to having just a smart device. In addition, the SpeakEasy by Como Audio has an exterior made from furniture quality wood cabinetry, multi-room control capacity courtesy of Google ChromeCast, a visual display with self adjusting brightness and pleasingly tactile manual control knobs.
The SpeakEasy by Como Audio has a ¾” soft dome tweeter, 3” custom, dual voice coil woofer, and custom DSP equalization which have all been added to improve the quality of the audio and result in fantastic, high-fidelity sound, which delivers your favourite tunes exactly as it should be heard. The rear port of the device further enhances low bass frequencies while conveniently doubling as a carry handle when you want to move it around the home or take it to the office.
Aesthetically speaking, the SpeakEasy by Como Audio is difficult to top and comes in a number of different colour options – namely, walnut, hickory, piano black and piano white. Crafted from a durable casing which is wrapped in a real walnut or hickory wood veneer or high gloss, multi-layered piano black or white finish, the visual appeal of the device is second to none. The top and front panels and knobs are made from anodised aluminium and the speaker grilles are painted aluminium.
A great feature of the SpeakEasy by Como Audio on Kickstarter is its ability to wirelessly link with other Como Audio Music Systems to create whole house multi-room streaming. This is good news for the existing Como Audio customers because you can simply connect Google Chromecast Audio Devices to other units and ask SpeakyEasy™ with the Google Assistant to play your top tunes in one room or all rooms in your home.
With prices starting at just $199 (for a short period of their Kickstarter campaign), this is an extremely affordable and top performing audio solution with the added benefit of excellent smart technology which more and more of us are now embracing in our own homes. The SpeakEasy by Como Audio has certainly captured our imagination at Coolector HQ with its superb visual impact and unparalleled audio performance and you’ll need to move quickly if you want to bag one for under $200.
