Connected Distribution is appointed as distributor for US brand Como Audio
Connected Distribution has been appointed as the UK distributor for leading US smart music system brand, Como Audio.
Boston-based Como Audio was founded in 2016 by 40-year veteran audio pioneer and Hall of Fame audio designer, Tom DeVesto. Formerly the founder of Tivoli Audio, Cambridge SoundWorks and other well-known brands, Mr DeVesto’s goal with Como Audio was simple: “To make a high-quality product that supports the latest technology, is simple to operate and makes it easy to access all of the music content available through one device that would deliver multi-room, true high-fidelity sound, in a compact and beautifully made distinctive design.”
The first Como Audio products, the Solo and larger Duetto, were designed to achieve the objective – listening to music from an iPhone, Spotify, Bluetooth, Internet, FM or DAB Radio is as simple as touching one button. Today, the company produces a range of products that include the original Solo and Duetto and now also features the Amico, a portable multi-room audio system for indoor or outdoor use, and the Musica – a complete Wi-Fi streaming multi-room audio system with built in CD player that also includes Tidal, Deezer, Napster, and Amazon Music.
Recently, Como introduced the Turntable, that connects directly to the Como Audio music systems, or a stand-alone hi-fi system, and the Bluetooth Turntable which, as its name suggests, connects wirelessly to the Como Audio products.
Now, Connected Distribution – the trade distributor of custom installation, home cinema and hi-fi products – will help make the brand’s user-friendly connected audio products available to UK consumers.
Mike Bonnette, Connected Distribution’s Product Director, said: “We knew as soon as we heard the Como Audio products and met with Tom DeVesto that they were something special. The audio quality is exceptional for a product in its class, and the ease of operation makes them one of those rare technologically advanced products that isn’t daunting to use.
“We are very pleased to be able to bring another of Tom’s winning product lines to the UK consumer and open up the benefits of streaming and multi-room audio to people who would never have previously considered it.”
Connected Distribution has launched a direct-to-consumer website to undertake sales, shipping free of charge directly from its Cheltenham warehouse. The products will also be available from specially selected retail outlets across the country.
