FABRIQ Chorus, the next generation of its Alexa-enabled, multi-room speaker

FABRIQ’s next generation of its Alexa-enabled, multi-room speaker. Named Chorus, the smart speaker combines the voice activated Alexa service powered by far-field voice recognition with high-quality sound and multi-room connectivity. Chorus is available on Target.com and Amazon.com for $99.99.

Of the many upgrades to Chorus, one of the most notable is the voice-activated Alexa service. The previous model, Riff, offered at $49.99, contained touch activated Alexa. Use your voice to control Chorus including asking Alexa to play music, check the weather, place calls and more. Alexa can hear voice requests even when the music is playing and can be activated using the awake word “Alexa.” Chorus has a dedicated charging dock for convenient power and can also be controlled via the FABRIQ app, available on Apple’s iTunes store and Google Play.

Now with 8 watts of power, two drivers and a passive radiator, Chorus delivers superior sound quality, making it an excellent option as a standalone speaker, but even better when paired with the wider FABRIQ family. Use Chorus as your command center and pair it with our Riff speakers for an affordable whole home surround sound system. Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi allow you to stream music from most major services and have access to your music on the go.

At launch, Chorus will be available in four different patterns so consumers can find a design that matches their style. Target stores will carry two exclusive patterns in-store for guests: Duke of Earl and Static. Two additional patterns, Quartz and Midnight Blue, are available on Target.com and Amazon.com. Additional seasonal patterns will be available in coming months.

“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.”
