FABRIQ Chorus is Alexa Multi-room Wireless Speaker

FABRIQ just introduced a wireless smart speaker called Chorus that bundles Amazon Alexa inside. The $100 speaker is multi-room capable and responds to voice commands just like the Amazon Echo.

The FABRIQ Chorus is the bigger brother to FABRIQ’s smaller Alexa-enabled speaker called Riff for $50. Other than size, the main difference is that Riff is touch activated to enable Alexa and Chorus responds to the wake word “Alexa”.  On either, you can use your voice to ask Alexa to play music, check the weather, place calls and more.

With 8 watts of power, two drivers and a passive radiator, Chorus is powerful enough as a standalone speaker, but even better when pair more. Up to ten FABRIQ speakers can be used together. Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi allow you to stream music from most major services and have access to your music on the go.

“We were able to deliver tremendous value when we launched the touch activated Riff last year, but knew we were leaving a large portion of the market untouched without a voice activated unit,” said Jordon Sansom, Director of Marketing, FABRIQ. “We were building Chorus in tandem with Riff, but needed time to make sure the far field voice control technology worked in conjunction with Chorus’s speaker power. During this time, we were able to observe consumers reception to products on the market which helped to solidify what features we wanted to include in our all-in-one Alexa solution at the sub $100 price point.”

“There are several smart speakers currently on the market but each one seems to compromise an important feature. With Chorus, we set out to fulfill the consumer’s full wish list – excellent audio, the ability to link with other smart speakers, the ability to play music from major streaming services, voice control and affordability – all without breaking the bank,” said Sansom. “We have seen the profound impact voice has had on the adoption of smart home technology and we will continue to advance our technology as we further grow the FABRIQ brand.”
