When it comes to consumer audio, there are several names that come to mind. Names like Sonos, Ultimate Ears, JBL, and more to name just a few. It's definitely time for you to start looking at the newcomer: Como Audio. From the mind of audio legend, Tom DeVesto who is responsible for Tivoli Audio brings forth something new.
Como Audio is a little bit of high-end audio look w/ the options of consumer audio. This is another successful Kickstarter project which went above & beyond its goal by 500%. We attended the official launch event and got their Solo speaker a few weeks back to review/listen for ourselves. Time to let you know exactly why you need to check this out.
This takes the convenience of a Bluetooth speaker w/ a high-end aesthetic to create the total package.
So the Solo speaker looks beautiful but how does it actually sound? Really damn good! Thanks to their 19mm tweeters & a 3inch woofer w/ an oversized magnet. You also got a digital signal processor, a 30-watt Class D digital amplifier, Qualcomm aptX technology, FM + Internet radio options, USB/TV Optical/Hi-Res inputs, Bluetooth, NFC, Spotify Connect, support for Google Cast + Amazon Dot, and can be paired w/ other Como Audio speakers in multiple rooms.
We checked out a few podcasts along w/ some newer tunes from Young Jeezy, Joe Buddens, & Solange. You can get a full & loud sound that offer plenty of clarity, good bass, and level mids. The audio is definitely a more balanced sound that can fill up a large room. It's not super bass heavy so it won't shake the house down but you will be completely pleased w/ the audio results. For those of you who may require a bit more thump, we suggest you take a look at the larger Duetto speaker.
The Solo is a wonderful take on the new modern speaker.

Como Audio made sure to check all of the necessary boxes of a great design, big sound, and enough jacks for anything you might want to connect it to audio-wise. Something many companies shy away from. With the pricing starting at $299, the Solo offers a lot within its premium shell. Among all of the speakers you can buy, it's definitely in the top tier. But Sonos does offer more of a thump in the bass department for those of you who need that thump.
