Choose the host on the speaker linked by way of Bluetooth and be a part of the opposite speaker. Bam. Two audio system. Or the audio system could be linked with three.5mm or XLR cables.
Soundboks was based in 2014 and took part in Y Combinator's Winter 2016 program. The corporate achieved a turnover of $ 13.5 million in 2018 and bought greater than 50,000 of its first two merchandise.
