House of Marley Unveils 2015 CES Lineup & Live Performance Schedule Featuring Reggae All-Stars
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2015-- House of Marley introduces the new standard in technology with state-of-the-art additions to its world-class collection of personal audio and lifestyle products at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), taking place January 6-9, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES attendees can hear, feel and experience the latest in audio technology from House of Marley and catch live music sets daily in Central Hall, Booth #7913, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Kicking off the new year of products with a sonic boom is a remastered One Foundation sound system featuring the latest in streaming technology, the Qualcomm® AllPlay™ smart media platform. The sound bar is strikingly beautiful and features a custom glazed oak wood baffle with magnetic breakaway speaker grills that accentuate the powerful audio system's 5.25" high-output woofers and 1" high-definition tweeters. With enhanced Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi capabilities, the One Foundation utilizes AllPlay to stream music directly from the users' phone, tablet, local server or cloud to create a harmonized synchronization between all speakers resulting in an effortless multi-room system to play the same song in all rooms or different tunes in various spaces. AllPlay also supports streaming with your favorite online music services.
