The market is slowly becoming saturated with devices that bring music streaming services to speakers that aren’t digitally connected. In the past year I’ve come across Gramofon, Rocki, Prizm, and other devices.
Next up? Beep.
Beep is basically a giant dial that connects to power and to speakers via an audio or optical cable. Once the device is set up via the Beep app it will stream Pandora or Spotify Premium through the connected speakers.
Hypebot reports that Beep has raised $4 million in funding from Garry Tan (Y Combinator), Alexis Ohanian (reddit), Justin Kan (Twitch), Tony Hsieh (Zappos), and David Dolby (Dolby Labs).
In June Beep raised $1.6 million from Doby, VegasTechFund, Fuel Capital, and others.
