A company EMTEC shared some new information about their three upcoming products: an audio line for unlimited wireless listening Soundunity, a line of wireless storage devices WEYA, and a microconsole GEM Box.
Soundunity is a multi-room, multispeaker audio line. The line consists of six speakers for all rooms, including a a portable waterproof one.
“Whether you’ve yet to explore wireless audio, you’ve been disappointed with existing options or are looking to modernize your existing stereo, these speakers are the easiest way to get crystal-clear multiroom
audio at an affordable rate,” said Nathalie Lamri, Marketing Director at EMTEC.
Soundunity does not require a local wi-fi network or router. All that you have to do is to pair one Master speaker via Bluetooth which then automatically connects with all other speakers nearby.
As a source can be used music streaming services (including Spotify Connect, Pandora, Amazon Music, YouTube Red, Deezer), online radio stations, personal music libraries, etc. Also, using the Soundunity Streamer, you can bring the music from CDs, records and other formats.
Soundunity will have its free app for iOS and Android to control volume, speakers, playlists, custom zones and more.
