You see, when a man loves a woman, and vice versa, there comes a time when he and/or she must put on something sexy - some Barry White or Teddy Prendergrass, maybe a little Prince, maybe some Serge Gainsbourg. Perhaps a little soft electronica, whatever floats your loveboat. And then that man and that woman must turn down the lights, maybe turn up the heating a little bit.</p> <p><strong>And...?</strong></p> <p>And it used to be that this was a complicated, multi-stage process, before Musaic came along, but not any more. You see, this British-designed multiroom music system works like <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sonos/sonos-play1/review" target="_blank">Sonos</a> or <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/jongo/ces-2014/pure-jongos-play-nice-spotify-and-every-other-music-streaming-service/news" target="_blank">Pure&#39;s Jongo system</a>, but it takes things a little further. Because it incorporates open-source AllJoyn tech, it can also link up to other Internet of Things devices, like connected dimmer switches and smart heating.

But that&#39;s not the only reason to get excited about this Shoreditch startup; Musaic also plays uncompressed 24-bit audio (using your home Wi-Fi network) and works with iOS and Android, laptops, tablets and so on. It works with a whole bunch of streaming services, too, including Grooveshark, Napster and Rhapsody, although Spotify is noticeably absent. There are two players, the &pound;160 (RM875) MP5 and the &pound;230 (RM1255) MP10, both of which will play from different sources or join in multiroom chorus. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/musaic03_0.jpg?1395547135" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>So why&#39;s it next to a duck?</strong></p> <p>The duck is filled with romantic-smelling potpourri.

It&#39;s then sent on to every other Jongo in the house using Pure&#39;s own fancy Caskeid tech, which ensures every speaker is perfectly synchronised.</p> <p>At least, that&#39;s how it works in Phase 1, which is launching any day now. Phase 2 sees Pure making the Caskeid App Dev Kit available to other services, which should mean direct Wi-Fi support is available for many in the near future.</p> <p>Hooray for openness and flexibility!
