IFA 2017: Tap to talk to Alexa with Tibo Choros Tap speaker
Buckinghamshire-based audio brand Tibo used IFA 2017 to launch the Choros Tap, which the company describes as “the UK’s first third-party, multi-play, multi-connect active speaker supported by Amazon Alexa.”
The speaker provides near field control activation via a light touch, allowing users to play music, stream podcasts, listen to audio books, set alarms, make to-do lists and access real-time information relating to news, weather and traffic.
The Choros Tap, controllable via the Tibo app, will also operate home automation systems and control smart devices within the home.
The unit can be used as a single, standalone speaker or connected to other Smart Audio speakers in stereo or group mode to play lossless High Resolution audio streamed via Bluetooth or Wi Fi from a variety of sources. Thousands of internet radio stations and playlists can be readily available using the five pre-sets.
The multipurpose unit can be connected to other devices with a 3.5mm line-in. Its powerful sound is delivered with 30W of RMS power, 6 ohms, 88dB, 180Hz-15KHz.
