Retio is a well-made tribute to classic aesthetics with a 6800mAh battery that supports up to 6 hours of playback and clock time.

Each speaker is handcrafted using American black walnut, 360 brass, and vintage Nixie tubes. As already described, Retio is a radio, Bluetooth speaker, and clock.

Each unit is crafted by hand in the San Francisco Bay Area using materials, finishes, and details inspired by the glory of historical craftsmanship.

The Retio’s speaker has great sounding highs, crystal-clear mid ranges, and deep powerful bass. It’s equipped with a 10W Class-D amplifier, Qualcomm® aptX™ audio technology, and Bluetooth 5.0.

Retio radio speaker supports FM/AM radio, AUX, and Bluetooth with a Hi-Fi speaker module that brings an elegant touch to your listening time.

It is a mix of the old ways to listen to music while maintaining new methods with both Bluetooth and AUX input compatibility.

Retio also acts as a clock and alarm in silence and in speaker mode. The clock gives you the option to display 24hr military time or 12hr standard time.
