CES 2016: The Pepcom Digital Experience Press Event

The KUBE Speaker has Bluetooth connectivity, 35-quarts of insulated storage, Backlit controls with access to play, pause, change songs, or reconnect, and an audio system pushing out 125 decibels. It also provides 20 hours of continuous entertainment and is water proof.  The KUBE Speaker System will be available by summer for $1,099. Continue Reading…
