Beep, a new startup led by 2 former Googlers Shawn Lewis and Daniel Conrad, just launched a new device that plugs in your existing speakers to receive audio from Pandora or local contents from smartphone tablets running on iOS or Android. You can have multiple Beep devices throughout your home for non-disruptive listening.
Traditionally, audio streaming has been done via Bluetooth A2DP, which offers less flexibility and limited distance.
The device is very simple to use, once installed, user can just tap to turn on/off and a volume knob to adjust the sound. Beep will be available in Fall for $149, you can however reserve yours today for $99 .
