Grace Mondo Plus Classic
« on: 08:29:00 | 01 December, 2018 »
Grace Digital now has the Mondo Plus Classic listed on their website, but it is not yet on sale.  It has a wooden cabinet, in either black or walnut, and has a Qi charging plate on top for phones.  The list price is $249.99 but they will have frequent sales.  Here's the description:

The Grace Digital Mondo+ Classic is the perfect combination of old world quality meets new world technology. The Mondo+ Classic includes built in audio apps for access to over 100,000 internet radio stations, as well as Bluetooth and Chromecast built-in. Control the Mondo+ Classic via the front panel controls, included infrared remote, the Grace Digital smartphone app remote controller, Chromecast enabled smartphone apps and even via Google Home’s voice assistant. The Mondo+ Classic is the perfect bedside alarm clock with its 5 custom alarms settings, snooze and sleep timers, as well as custom day time and nighttime backlit display settings. With an integrated class D digital amplifier and custom speaker driver you will appreciate the warm deep bass and crisp highs coming from such a small package. Put a Mondo+ Classic in your bedroom, den and kitchen and play different music in every room, or synchronize your music throughout your home. With our built in multi-room audio feature you can mix and match any Mondo+, Mondo+ Classic and Encore+ and play different music or the same music synchronized through your house. And with the Chromecast built-in audio function you can group any Mondo+ Classic with any Google audio speakers or any brand of speakers that support the Chromecast built-in audio functionality for a multi-brand whole home audio solution.

·         Multi-Room Audio: Chromecast built-in feature also allows you to create multiple different streaming groups. Group a Mondo+ with other Mondo+ radios, or any other Chromecast audio compatible device (including a Google Home), and stream synchronized to all devices in the group at the same time.

·         Bluetooth 4.1: Integrated Bluetooth 4.1 chip which allows it to function as a standard in-home Bluetooth speaker or even transmit Bluetooth audio from the speaker to Bluetooth headphone or earbuds.

·         Works with Google Assistant: Anyone that owns a Google Home device can give voice commands to stream to the Mondo+

·         5V 3A USB port on the back of the unit allows the Mondo+ Classic to recharge your smartphone or tablet at any time

Chromecast?  Probably can be used with LMS chromecast bridge, adding in iPlayer, etc.  A bit pricey, 'though!

Yes, their existing Mondo + and Encore + work with the LMS castbridge add-on.  They wanted to price it between the plastic Mondo + and the Encore +.  I imagine they'll have frequent promotions to sell it at a discount.  They just had a 30% off sale for black Friday.
