Como Audio is Building the Future of Smart Speakers
Our smart speakers support a modern music listener's desires – high-fidelity sound, multi-room capabilities, portability – with the design and control aesthetics of old-fashioned stereos. All speakers are easy to use and can be controlled directly from the device – no phone required.

What's Next: Expanding Our Line
If we raise between $100K and $1M, we'll be able to bring two new products to market:
The first is Speakeasy, made in partnership with Google, with the Google Assistant built-in. We are one of the few companies in the world with a license to create this type of product (the others are giants such as Sony). Just by uttering “Okay, Google,” followed by a command, you can play music, control compatible devices (lighting, thermostats, etc.) around the home, set an alarm, and much more. Link your existing Spotify, Pandora, iHeart Radio, and other compatible premium streaming accounts and access them all by voice control. Unlike many voice assistant products, SpeakEasy is engineered specifically to sound great with music.
The second is a wireless Turntable.
Utilizing a low-noise motor and ultra-precision frequency generator, this precision belt-driven turntable provides speed stability without adding vibration. The arm’s unique design will allow immediate playback, eliminating the need to adjust a counterweight or anti-skating, while still providing superb sound quality. Wireless connection to our music systems via Bluetooth will be available, as well as a wired option using an included audio cable. The turntable will be offered in walnut and hickory real-wood veneers and multi-layer, high-gloss piano black and white finishes to complement our music systems, and come with a removeable dust cover and black Como Audio slip mat.
