FRAMINGHAM, Mass., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Libratone Inc. will showcase its line of award winning wireless speaker systems at CE Week 2014, taking place in New York City from June 25-26. The upscale brand invites attendees to hands on demonstrations of Libratone speakers outfitted with all new updates that include:
-- Built-in Spotify Connect for seamless music streaming: Enjoy wireless play back from a limitless music library without encountering any interruptions from an unstable connection, incoming calls or loss of signal range. Spotify Connect does not drain the battery life of the speaker and will be available in every new Libratone Loop and Zipp and through firmware updates for current owners. -- HTC-Enabled "three finger swipe" technology: A whole new level of convenience. All an HTC owner needs to share content with their favorite Libratone speaker is a simple three-finger swipe up the screen of the phone. Music lovers will enjoy their audio within seconds all without losing the slightest bit of quality. -- Updated iOS and Android Apps make users listening experience even more intuitive and personal. Inputting the placement of the speaker into the app will adjust the sound to fit the size of whatever room it is in. Additional features include: assessment of WiFi signal strength, improved set up wizard, new voicing functionality and the ability to update current speakers with new technologies.
“Our goal is to liberate music from the limitations of conventional listening,” said Libratone Inc. CEO Greg Stein. “By incorporating HTC and Spotify Connect we are offering our customers millions of songs at their fingertips with complete ease of use. Our updated apps will deliver pitch perfect audio in fully customizable FullRoom(TM) sound.”
Users can connect to Libratone’s speakers through the company’s patented PlayDirect(TM) technology. PlayDirect(TM) turns each speaker into its own hotspot, eliminating the need to be close to a WiFi network.
Every speaker comes dressed in Libratone’s interchangeable Italian wool covers, available in a variety of vibrant color hues. Speakers support AirPlay, DLNA and HTC Connect Technology for FullRoom(TM) 360 degree sound. The lineup on display at CE Week will include the Loop, Zipp, Live, and Lounge.
