After we launched our first smart speaker systems in 2016, we heard from many happy customers who asked for a portable version. We listened and we acted. Amico, or “friend” in Italian, is the result. Amico is based on our best-selling and highly acclaimed Solo, but adds some notable extras like a real teak wood veneer for weather resistance, a nearly ½” marine-grade plywood substrate for additional moisture protection, a slip-resistant bottom silicone pad, a custom 2200mAh rechargeable LI-ion battery providing 8 hours of playback time, a 100-240V external power supply, a rear bass port that doubles as the carry handle, and anodized aluminum knobs that extend an additional 4 mm for easier use.
