“Beep” Whole-Home Wireless Audio Solution Is Basically Chromecast For Music
Beep (or is it “a Beep”?) is a metal dial that connects directly to virtually any speakers in your home via 3.5mm AUX, RCA, or optical input and connects wirelessly to your WiFi network. You can use the Beep app on your smartphone to tell it to play music, and you can start it up simply by tapping the Beep device.
To pause, just tap it again, and you can twist the dial to turn the music up or down.
Your music will sync across your whole home, assuming you have a Beep connected to all your speakers. Further, you can set up groups of Beeps around the home to have more than one Beep network, if you will.
For now, you can either play the music directly stored on your iOS or Android smartphone or via your Pandora app with Beep, although support for more apps including Spotify, Rdio, and more are in the offing.
Beep will cost $149 when it launches this fall, but for now you can preorder one for just $99.
