Como Audio Solo and Duetto: One-Touch Streaming/Multi-Room

$268,142

HiFi Multi-Room streaming from Audio Hall of Fame member Tom DeVesto, the founder of Cambridge SoundWorks & Tivoli Audio.       

No cellphone necessary!

Two music systems - Solo and Duetto. High quality sound and build, simplicity of use, and an unprecedented number of music listening options available at the touch of a button.

When streaming services took over, a lot of people stopped paying attention to sound quality. You listened through your earbuds, your laptop, your smartphone. Or you connected to a music player through bluetooth and everything sounded a little better — as long as you stayed within 30 feet, and Mom didn’t call.

It’s time for your music player to do the heavy lifting

Solo is a beautiful, compact hardwood box that delivers big, room-filling audio with no smart device required. It's a simple, all-in-one solution to streaming music.

Double your power with Duetto

Pledge $275 or more, and you’ll unlock even more sound with Duetto. Duetto takes all the exciting features Solo has to offer, with true stereo sound, to allow for much higher listening levels.

Endless ways to listen

When you stream music straight off your Solo or Duetto, your phone stays free to do everything else. Never waste your phone's battery with streaming again.

 In the spirit of keeping things phone-free, every Solo and Duetto comes with a remote control. That said, we do have a full-featured app: Como Control, which is an easy way to change things up from anywhere in the house. Available for iOS and Android.

The app allows for:

  • Switching between sources 
  • Tune stations 
  • Save station presets 
  • Control volume 
  • Multi-room control
  • Control EQ 
  • Play/Pause

Risks and challenges

We expect to fulfill all Kickstarter orders by fall of 2016. However, it's possible that our production schedule may shift based on the number of orders we receive.

Como is staffed by a team of audio experts who have produced millions of music solutions over many decades. While we cannot confirm final production dates until our campaign ends, we have the knowledge and connections to execute Solo and Duetto quickly, beautifully, and with the highest audio quality.
