More music sources exist today than ever before…Spotify Connect, Bluetooth wireless technology, WiFi streaming, and Internet radio to name only a few. Duetto is designed with these in mind…a single “smart speaker” that delivers a world of musical content straight to your ears for a satisfying acoustic, aesthetic, and intuitive experience. Designed by audio veteran Tom DeVesto, Duetto is first and foremost a high fidelity stereo speaker. The foundation is a nearly half inch-thick MDF wood cabinet housing two ¾” soft dome tweeters and two custom 3” long-throw, 4- layer voice coil woofers with oversized magnets. The exterior is expertly crafted using one of several furniture-grade, real wood veneers, or a multi-layer piano gloss finish. The custom Digital Signal Processor (DSP), 60 watt RMS Class D digital amplifier, Qualcomm aptX audio, and 3 inputs supporting playback of hi res files result in faithful reproduction of your favorite songs.
Particular emphasis was placed on ease of use. With the touch of a preset button on the anodized aluminum front panel, Duetto will power on and begin playing your favorite saved station. Taking this a step further, individual sources can also be saved to the presets, allowing Duetto to power on and immediately revert to Spotify Connect, Auxiliary, etc. Moreover, preset playback is independent and not limited to whichever source is playing at the time. Bluetooth wireless technology set up is a snap thanks to Near Field Communication (NFC). Artist and song information as well as album art is beautifully reproduced on Duetto’s 3.2” TFT color display, and the artwork can even be expanded to fill the entire display.
If you wish to enjoy music throughout your home, Duetto’s multi-room allows placement of multiple units in a single room or in many rooms. You can play the same source on all of your Duettos, or different sources on different Duettos. This may sound complicated, but Como Audio’s free app for iOS and Android brings simplicity to multiroom. Of course, a traditional remote is also supplied to control most of Duetto’s non-multi-room functions.
The conveniences continue with a USB input (which also doubles as a smart phone charger or power for an accessory like Google’s Cast or Amazon’s Dot) to playback music from a flash drive, an optical input to connect audio from a television to transform Duetto into a stereo sound bar, dual alarms, wireless software updates, and an internal switching power supply that automatically detects the correct input voltage.
Duetto takes a myriad of musical content and organizes and presents in a simple, enjoyable, and beautiful way… precisely the way music should be.
