DESIGNED TO NEVER STOP SINGING

AmbiBox is our statement when it comes to Music Player for businesses, and it's inception is the result of 5 years of experience with embedded music Players.

We've partnered with ASUS to offer a unique combination of great sound, stability and low power consumptions.

It sounds great, because it integrates an Audiophile-grade Digital to Analog Converter, capable of 24 bit and 192 KHz audio playback.

It's rock-solid stable, since it features a 16GB solid state memory, and the Operating System is an improved version of Volumio, the most popular audio distribution for embedded PC, active on more than 140k devices.

And it's a miracle of efficiency, since it draws just 1.5 Watts when operating.
