Tens of millions of compact discs continue to sell each year around the world. On top of that, many music enthusiasts still maintain CD collections, including music they’ve burned on recordable CDs. And with all the talk of “CD quality”, one way to easily achieve CD quality is with CDs. With all of this in mind, our Founding CEO, Tom DeVesto, developed Musica. The single CD slot-loading mechanism is built to rigorous automobile industry standards and plays CD, CD-R, and CD-RW discs.
But Musica is more than just a Duetto with an integrated CD player. We listened to feedback from our loyal customers and added an Ethernet connection, two additional Presets with direct Preset access from the remote control, aluminum knobs that extend an additional 4 mm for easier use, and three new integrated premium music streaming services in addition to Spotify Connect, with Amazon Music due in the Summer of 2018.
If you own CDs then you probably already own a CD player, but Musica is much more than just a CD player…it’s a smart music system. Besides playing CDs, you can explore 30,000 Internet radio stations from around the globe, tune DAB/DAB+ stations (European version), stream wirelessly via Bluetooth with AAC and Qualcomm’s aptX for audio, charge your smart device from the USB jack, listen to sound from your TV using the optical input, connect analog audio equipment using the two auxiliary inputs, use the Ethernet input instead of WiFi, and use the included remote control or the free Como Control app for iOS and Android. Musica’s 3.2” color display beautifully reproduces Internet and DAB station logos and album artwork. As if all of this weren’t enough, Musica also integrates Spotify Connect, Tidal, Deezer, and Napster premium music streaming services, with Amazon Music to be added mid to late Summer of 2018. After the setup, listening to music is as simple as pressing one of the eight presets to turn Musica on and tune to that station or source. There’s even dual independent alarms, tone adjustments, and display brightness settings.
If you’re fortunate enough to own more than one Como Audio music system, you can multi-room a CD or one of Musica’s other sources to one or all of your other Como Audio units and fill your home with your favorite songs. Attractively housed in one of several different finishes, the rigid MDF cabinet also contributes to the high fidelity sound. Unlike many products on the market today that blend traditional audio with new technology, Musica does so with a classic styling and without added complication.
“A” is for Apple…and Android. Whichever you use, we have the App for you. The free Como Control App for iOS and Android converts your smart device into a wireless, touch screen controller for your Solo or Duetto. Let your fingers do the walking and access functions like power, volume, tuning, presets, sources, EQ, play/pause, view Internet station logos and Spotify album art, see meta data, and coordinate multi-room sound (if you have multiple models throughout your home). You can also set the time, activate the Sleep timer, and perform a Factory reset, all without having to use the controls on the unit. Control freaks, we have you covered.
Multi-room began life as Multi-zone, and depending on the system, may have required a custom installer to install it and “train” the customer how to use it. For those wanting a simpler solution, place our models in different rooms, download our free App, and you’ll soon be enjoying music throughout your home. Control your music anywhere, from anywhere. Play different sources in any room or sync all the rooms together to play the same thing. It’s multi-room on your terms.
Some audio products on the market that come with an App often do not also include a remote control. At Como Audio, we recognize there may be times when a dedicated remote can come in handy, so we include one with every Como Audio music system. Duplicating many of the front panel functions and offering a few new ones, the remote provides control for power, volume, mute, ‘now playing’ information, source selection, setting alarms, menu access, tuning, play/pause/track control, saving Internet station Favorites, and even turning the backlight off in standby. Our remote strikes the perfect balance between functionality and simplicity (and it looks cute, too).
