Our Campaign Is Live!

by Jacqueline L

Tangara is a cool, hackable, ESP32-powered music player that provides high-quality audio, long battery life, and a design that’s easy to customize, repair, and upgrade.

If you read our pre-launch page, you may be delighted to learn that Tangara has gotten even better since then! Standby battery life is now much longer, and we’ve rewritten our entire user interface in Lua scripts, for easier customization.

We’d love for you to give our campaign page a look and consider backing Tangara!
