Leading consumer electronics Hall of Fame Legend and Visionary Tom DeVesto stayed true to a single-focused mission over the last 40 years, and that is to bring a new experience to the consumer electronics market – one that enhances and improves upon expectations.
Whether he is introducing the theater experience to the home audiences with Advent and Kloss Video big screen TVs, or selling stereo systems direct to the consumer with Cambridge SoundWorks, or making high performance radios and music systems with great design and great sound reflective of another era with Tivoli Audio, Tom DeVesto never loses sight of the goal: make a high quality product that supports the latest technology — is simple to operate – has distinctive design – takes up a small amount of space – and doesn’t become obsolete.
Millions of the products created by Tom DeVesto are used around the world today. He returns to the consumer electronics marketplace with a new Boston Massachusetts based company “Como Audio”. Here he will continue his goal of bringing high performance, vision, design and long lasting products to the consumer.
Products that will, hopefully, continue to raise the bar on their expectations.
The first of Como Audio’s products, aptly called “Solo” and “Duetto,” are designed to make all of the music content available today accessible, simply by touching a button.
With Solo and Duetto, there is no need for an app or remote control to listen to music from all content sources including: Spotify, Internet, Bluetooth or FM radio. “Today music is everywhere through so many content sources and the list keeps expanding and evolving,” says Tom DeVesto, Como Audio Founder and Designer. “I wanted to make it easy to access all of the music content available through one device that would deliver robust, true high-fidelity sound in a compact wooden design that would not only produce great room-filling sound, but have the ability to sync music throughout the house.”
Solo has a custom Digital Signal Processor with a digital amplifier for its great sound. It comes with six pre-sets for your favorite music sources, a 2.8” color display for Artist/Song meta data and available album art, four-layer voice coil, 3″ woofer, and 60-watt RMS amplifier with 3/4″ tweeter, dual independent alarms, Internet Radio accessing 20,000 stations including Podcasts, multi-room capable, Bluetooth with aptX, is Google Cast/Amazon Dot-ready, NFC, DLNA, four high-res inputs, DAB/DAB+ available for outside North America, and has an optical input to connect audio from a TV.
