Well, it’ll need a lot more than 60 grand to challenge the biggest company in the wireless hi-fi market, but Musaic’s Kickstarter campaign has set a lowball figure for pre-orders of its first products, the MP5 and MP10 music players. They’re wireless speakers that stream music over Wi-Fi from smartphones, tablets and computers, while also supporting streaming music services including Napster, Rhapsody and TuneIn. The MP10 is designed to be used in larger rooms like lounges, while the MP5 is smaller for use around the house – both are capable of synching songs throughout the house, or playing different tunes in different rooms. The first models are expected to be shipped to early backers in September, with pledges starting at £160 for “super early bird” access. “We wanted to create a wireless hi-fi system that first and foremost sounds fantastic. Musaic uses cutting edge digital technology and advanced acoustics and can play uncompressed files for the ultimate audio experience,” says CEO Matthew Bramble. One day in, and Musaic has attracted £9.4k of pledges, so it’s well on the way, but will need to build momentum over the next month to surpass its goal.
