In the promotional video, it was mentioned that Spotify is easy to connect to. ?
There is indeed a connection between the Solo and However, you will need to connect it via Bluetooth from your device. Using Spotify Connect, you can throw down your phone in the ocean while listening to your favorite playlists.
The mpeg4 file from the BBC can be directly played by this device Is it possible to have both Dash and HLS ?
Yes, I do.
Are you able to carry it around with you? Could you please describe the gracedigital mondo to me? Does it have a battery or does it have to be plugged in all the time?
Dear S., thanks for your email. Habs at ya! We do not have battery-operated products currently in production, the Solo and Duetto. If they are to be used, they must be connected 100% of the time. Our team is working on a battery-operated portable product. Around the middle to end of summer, keep your eyes open. Thank you for your interest in Como Audio, Brian Walsh
Selected User Reviews For Como Audio: Solo - Wireless Music System with Internet Radio, Spotify Connect, Wi-Fi, FM, and Bluetooth - Hickory/Black
I found it to be a little lacking in some aspects
ADVANTAGES - *An attractive design, a quality construction*- It supports a variety of music sources. There is plenty of connectivity - You can choose from many colors and buttons for a satisfying tactile experience. * CONS* It is insufficient to have 6 preset buttons on a device with this many inputs - In addition to the six presets in the Multi-mode, there is no other FM preset Depending on your radio's menu or the phone app, you can access the source buttons. - This device does not have HD Radio tuner- A radio band with AM doesn't exist - It is not possible to pull up stations from iHeartRadio through the built-in Internet radio tuner - Other than what's baked into the unit's menu which is a minimal selection, there are no streaming services such as Tidal, Deezer, Amazon, Google, TuneIn, Pandora, Sirius XM, etc. The words *br Currently there is no native voice control, although an Amazon Dot or Chromecast can be hooked up to the aux input for streaming audio- It does not live up to expectations despite being advertised as a 30-watt system Speakers with a wattage of more than 100 watts. Apparently, there is a mid-range problem here as well as a lack of bass depth There is a little hollowness in it, in my opinion. The words *br A sufficient amount of adjustment is lacking in EQ settings. The only things I can change are bass, treble, and 'loudness', as well as a couple of factory presets that aren't to my taste.
- There should be an update to the software that provides additional presets to the 6 physical buttons on the unit, in addition to the already existing 6 presets*/br>- A separate set of presets should be offered in the FM tuner menu. Even if I just had 15 or more FM radio presets, I could easily use them. The words *br It is important to integrate iHeartRadio into the software. There are hundreds of radio stations/streams that are currently not available in the app due to their exclusivity with There is no doubt that it's possible since Grace Digital offers it with their Internet radios. The words *br There are two providers of lossless high-quality streaming music Tidal and Deezer These streams sound better than Spotify, and they should be supported on a product targeted at audiophiles such as this*- general, the support of all relevant streaming services such as those listed above should be expanded. A multi-faceted problem My one wish was to have a radio/streamer. This did not allow access to HD radio channels and other channels on the iHeart media platform that are priorities to me, so I was forced to stream them from my phone, defeating the purpose of having the built-in tuner to free me from streaming from my It was a discontinued Cambridge Soundworks Model 88, which I still regard as the gold standard if it came to great sound systems I find the Como to be well built, looks good, and although the audio quality isn't my cup of tea, it's good enough. I thought it was an admirable first effort by this company, but I was struck by the way the Solo seemed to be a Jack of all trades and a.

A nice-looking system with a nice sound
Pros This building is solidly constructed. It has many ways to connect external audio (Bluetooth, line in, USB, optical). It has decent sound considering its size and price. The Cons Knife knobs are too small for any but the nimblest This radio can be used with an Android app (Google Pixel), but this app is completely unstable. The app crashes when you select one of its functions. It isn't necessary to have the app installed to use I liked the Como Audio Solo's sound for its size, and it streamed my internet radio stations well. There is a need for the user interface to be more simple, and the Android app must be.

Software seems to respond slowly in some cases, but overall is good
Except for a couple of exceptions, I am pretty satisfied with the Como Solo. However, let me begin by mentioning how incredible the sound is! I like the way it fills up the first floor of my house very well and is very clear. A very attractive piece of equipment, too. As a result, you really should be prepared when you do by it when the exception occurs 2.
There are a lot of waits in the software because it runs this slow for what it is It took me some time to set up, to find a network, to move from one station to another. Wait time was quite long as it took about ten minutes for the network to appear on my phone. It usually finds the network within seconds on most phones and computers. You should also avoid using the knobs buttons on the set-up, it's not very friendly. In the event of a wrong knob touch, you have to start the search/setup all over again when you have a wrong touch. For this part, the remote is much easier to use. In fact, it's easier to use for most things, except to go directly to a station (one of the I am a knob person, I prefer to control things by hand rather than with 1. 'Item 2. When you think about the number of settings this thing has, it would seem that it was a good idea to pre-set It would be a no-brainer to program more than six stations for the touch buttons. In cars, you will typically find this with the touch buttons (FM 1, FM 2, etc. ). Why they didn't do such a thing here is beyond me. 1. 2. 3. So far I have not been able to make it work via the USB cable/firewire and the USB setting with my iPhone. There is no way for me to plug and play a smartphone, so I have to connect it with an audio wire. That's fine, as long as I can play Pandora through it, but I would expect a smartphone to be able to plug and play. I. Introduction 4. As far as I'm concerned, for my situation, I can't consider this a con. But having only access to Spotify is lousy. Listening to Pandora is my favorite, and I have my stations set up. I don't know why I care so much about If only we could add an Internet address to the form, that would be perfect.

It's surprising how good the sound is given the compact size
Pros Given the size of the speaker, the sound is surprisingly good. Taking a look. It seems that you are in good physical condition- I made it. Efforts may be better spent on other aspects) *B) New software is buggy. It stops playing Spotify frequently and randomly, after which you need to reboot it Each week, five times As compared to For Spotify on my Sonos system, I've never had this problem). It suddenly decides to reboot to midnight and freeze, after which it can no longer be revived by rebooting Plugging it in and restarting it are both required. It's not always easy to use presets. In response to In spite of the app's software challenges, it has received positive reviews on iTunes and Google play. The display does not react to light levels in the room, so it's too bright at night when one does not want a bright glow disturbing sleep, and it's too dim during the day at which one would like Brightness can be changed, but the brightest setting still makes it challenging to read in bright rooms, and the dimmest setting still works in the dark (and they're deep in the menu and relatively difficult to use anyway).
3) It's not immediately obvious where the knobs are located, which makes them a little difficult to use. The menu design also creates an issue where common tasks (for me), such as adjusting the alarm time (and unfortunately, rebooting the Solo), are hidden deep within menus I hope that Como keeps improving the app and the software along with the Solo.
