Boston, MA -- For those who want to listen to music from room to room or wherever they go, Amico, the newest high-fidelity design by Tom DeVesto of Como Audio, is portable, battery-powered, and lightweight, featuring great sound with eight hours of playback. The Amico weighs only 3.6 pounds including battery pack and is compact in size measuring 9.4" H x 5" D x 4.9" W. This small "friend" as the name Amico implies is designed to play Internet radio, Spotify Connect, FM RDS, Bluetooth with aptX, and features AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) for better sound quality, and NFC for pairing devices. Amico's portable design not only makes it easy to bring music from room to room indoors, but is also the perfect solution for outdoor entertainment.
"Today people of all ages have active lifestyles and want the ability to not only access music content from several music sources, but to listen to music while outside, whether sitting on one's terrace, in the backyard, at the beach, or on even on a boat," says Tom DeVesto Como Audio Founder and Designer. "Amico was designed to not only make it easy to access all of your music content with the press of a button, but to listen to great sounding music wherever you go."
Amico is beautifully designed in Teak wood veneer with nearly ½" thick marine-grade plywood substrate and anodized metal knobs for added weather resistance. The front panel features a 2.8" color TFT display and 6 independent pre-sets for setting favorites. The adjustable EQ allows for bass, treble, balance and loudness control and there is a telescoping external antenna for FM radio.
Amico is a Wi-Fi music system with an analog or digital clock display and time and date that updates automatically. The dual independent alarms feature scheduling options plus snooze and sleep timer. A backlight adjustment allows for uninterrupted sleep.
It comes with a rechargeable Li-Ion battery for up to 8 hours of playback when fully charged, 1 x 3" custom 4-layer voice coil woofer, and 1 x ¾" dome tweeter. The tuned rear bass port provides for efficient bass response and extended range, it also doubles as a convenient carry handle. Outputs are available for USB/Headphone and optional Ambiente speaker. (EU variant includes DAB/DAB+). It comes with a remote control, multi-language usage interface, free iOS and Android apps, and receives updates through the Internet.
"Amico is small on size and big on advanced technology, and will make accessing music content easy and simple with the touch of a button," continues Mr. DeVesto. "No longer will telephone calls have to be interrupted because music is playing from a phone. Because today music is everywhere, now with Amico, the music is accessible anywhere and all the time."
Amico is suggested to retail for $399 and comes with a 2-year warranty. Amico will initially be offered through a Kickstarter campaign that begins immediately, and will be at market beginning in October.
