The Zettally Avy Smart Speaker is a device, set to be unveiled at CES 2015, that brings together the best attributes of Android-based tablets and audiophile-targeted Hi-Fi systems. The device aims to offer the portability of tablets with the high quality of proper Hi-Fi systems. Weighing 1 kilogram, the device is heavier than a tablet but far lighter than typical Hi-Fi systems.
The Avy Smart Speaker can play app-generated playlists or music streamed from the Internet, from another device or stored on the system itself. As if that weren't great enough, the device can also stream video and mirror content on bigger screens using HDMI or Chromecast.
With its rare combination of portability, sound quality and aesthetics, the Avy Smart Speaker stands out as a true example of consumer tech innovation.
It is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign; a pledge of $129 will get you an Avy Standard while an extra $40 will get you a Pro version if and when the campaign hits its fundraising target.
