Gibson Innovations, the company now behind the Philips audio brand, has presented the Philips Izzy multi-room speaker range out in Berlin.
Connecting at the touch of a button, Philips/Gibson say these speakers give you all the playback options you’ll ever need while offering a seamless user experience. Just press the Izzylink ‘group’ button to play the same music through all speakers, or take control of each speaker individually to enjoy different music in different rooms.
The Izzy range allows you to listen to all the music from your favourite apps – with no restrictions – from any smartphone or tablet. Just connect to one speaker via Bluetooth, and Izzylink will do the rest – no Wi-Fi connection required. You can also stream your CDs or favourite radio station throughout your home.
“The new Philips Izzy range is a real breakthrough for people that want an easy-to-use multi-room music system in their home”, said Benjamin Ngo, Audio Business Leader, Gibson Innovations. “This is the first range to offer a multi-room plug and play solution without the need of a wireless router or app. Simply press a button and the speakers connect. With great looks and excellent sound quality, they work with any music app.”
