Manhattan’s The Uncommons, a Board Game Café, Gives Us a Personal Tour Of Its Korus Installation

From the Korus team – 11/15/13

This past week has been a busy one for us here at Korus. On Tuesday, we showcased our new wireless speakers at CES Unveiled in New York, where we hosted lots of interested press who wanted to hear us stream music with superior sound. The next day, we got to see Korus in action in a challenging retail environment when we took a tour of The Uncommons, Manhattan’s only board game cafe, a new hot spot at 230 Thompson in Greenwich Village. Since The Uncommons opened about 3 weeks ago it’s been a massive hit. Even Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey Baratheon in HBO’s television series Game of Thrones, stopped by the other day to play games for a few hours.

ImageCheck out The Uncommons, (grand opening November 19th) at As their website boasts, they truly are “the perfect place to grab coffee or tea, and a game of Scrabble or Settlers of Catan.” And now, they’re also the perfect place to listen to great music!

The Uncommons features a Korus V600 speaker and V400 speaker installation, selected because they deliver a quality sound system that would stand up to the rigorousImage demands of a noisy and busy retail environment.

Greg May, founder of The Uncommons, and editor of, placed our booming V600 Korus speaker in the window of the main room, while the V400 sits in a second room, both streaming music straight from a laptop.

With all the recent foot traffic, they’ve had multiple people inquire about the speakers and say they like the quality of the sound.

Image“We needed a solid audio system that is no mess, no fuss, and has a great sound quality,’ said May. “We wanted a wireless system for its extra portability and one that would fit into our shop’s multi room environment. Korus worked right out of the box, without needing a password or code or special setup and stayed perfectly in-synch, even when we power-cycled, moved the units around, or disconnected sources.” Many thanks to Greg for his confidence in Korus!

ImageAll in all, this week has been a huge success for Korus. We had the pleasure of meeting a lot of new people at CES Unveiled, and spread the word about our amazing Korus wireless speakers.  And to top it off, we got to see some of them in action! There’s absolutely nothing better than seeing firsthand how Korus has begun to change the wireless audio industry. You can get your all-in-one Korus bundle now at your local Best Buy Magnolia Design Center, as well as online at (and save $140 at Best Buy or online)! Thanks to everyone at CES Unveiled, and thanks to The Uncommons for letting us stop by and check out your new digs! Next time we’re in New York, maybe we’ll join in on a game of chess while listening to some great music through one of our speakers!
