NAMM 2018: Korg’s Konnect is a portable PA that you can control from your phone

NAMM 2018: Korg’s Konnect is a portable PA that can be used in variety of situations. Housed in a single unit, you could use it for small-room live performances, DJing, at a party or anywhere else you might require it.

The sound is said to be both loud and clear, and you get source-specific EQ presets. What’s more, once you’ve downloaded the Konnect app you can control the unit from your mobile. You can also stream music wirelessly over Bluetooth.
