The device is capable of streaming music over Wi-Fi and features built-in XBMC compatibility. The entire project is open source and is built with the hardware hacker and modder in mind. "The Duo's cabinet design is based on mid-century design principles," says co-founder and main designer Jason Perkins, "delivering more for less, allowing us to guarantee the hand-crafted cabinet for a lifetime. For a simpler user experience, the Duo utilizes a simple one source interface to control all onboard system features."
