Although digital music has completely supplanted all types of physical media, there are still vast collections of CDs that many fans jealously guard and love to listen to. However, devices on the market equipped with a CD player and capable of reproducing all intangible sources, such as Spotify and Tidal, are less and less.
It is precisely here that Musica, a new smart device by Como Audio, is inserted – an Italian name for a product born of Tom DeVesto, already the father of Tivoli Audio and who was inspired by the name of Lake Como, to remember its Italian origins – which has the objective of facilitating access to all material and immaterial musical contents.
High technological modernity combined with tradition in design, with square shapes and wood as the dominant finish (but black and white lacquers are also available): so in the design of Musica the speakers stand out, a pair of 19mm dome tweeters and two midwoofers 7.6 cm long run, concealed by a beautiful black metal grid and contained in a 12 mm thick MDF box.
Como Audio Musica’s electronics are updated, with a Slot-In CD, and equipped with a network section compatible with Spotify Connect, Amazon Echo Dot and Google Cast, Tidal, Deezer, Napster and finally Amazon Music. Web radio, DLNA with dual band wi-fi, but there is no lack of DAB +, FM, Bluetooth with aptX (NFC pairing) and playback of music files from MP3 to FLAC.
Obviously there is a 2.8 inch TFT color display that, in addition to the main functions, can also display the time and act as an alarm clock. On the front panel there are also 8 customizable buttons so that you can easily recall stations or functions. The connection park is very good with two analogue inputs, a USB (also for charging) and an optical digital as well as two outputs, 1 headset and 1 line.

Powerful internal 60W amplifier that, thanks to the mid-woofer bass-reflex configuration, allows for really remarkable low frequency performance for a product of this type. For the control, a remote control and an app for iOS and Android are available with which to choose the sources, search for radio stations and manage the equalizer.
