Kickstarter Pick of the Week: The MÜZO Cobblestone

There are lot of ways to play your tunes these days. From waterproof speakers that can take a beating to light bulbs that pound out the sound, there’s a little something for everyone. The MÜZO Cobblestone is one such gadget, and it’s our choice for the first Kickstarter Pick of 2015.

We’ve covered plenty of speakers over the past year, and now we’re going to take a look at a device that sends those sounds. The MÜZO Cobblestone is a hub built for audiophiles as it allows you to send a wide variety of audio formats to the speaker setup of your choosing. Oddly enough, there’s no optical hook up at this point, so you’ll have to rely on the old-school RCA jacks and a 3.5mm audio cable or wait for v2 later this year.

Once you are ready to rock, all you need is some music, a proper speaker and your home Wi-Fi network and you’re good to go. When you’re connected, you can use the mobile app to take control of your tunes from your favorite Android or iOS device. Music Streaming services like Pandora are said to be in the works as well pending licensing deals with the individual services.

In terms of formats, the MÜZO Cobblestone can handle Mp3’s along with the usual suspects like WMA, AAC, and WAV. As it’s built for streaming, you’ll also be able to stream Apple lossless, ALAC, FLAC, and APE as well. Needless to say, it should handle almost anything you can throw at it and the use of Wi-Fi ensures it will sound better than your typical Bluetooth solution.
