Too hot to leave the house? Now more than ever some good home theater equipment can make the day to day a lot easier to take. Parents with kids home from school need something to help occupy the kids and video games and television might not be the healthiest options but they certainly help you get things done.
Your summer home theater setup should be easy to use and stored in an air conditioned room. The tendency for equipment to overheat is not something one tends to worry about year round but even the best equipment can get a little warm during these summer months. Whether you are working with Bluetooth speakers or some other audio setup it is vital that the devices are turned off when not in use and kept out of the sun.
Your summer audio setup should not be much different than your winter audio setup, you might just want to be sure to leave it in a room that is a little cooler than the rest of your home.
Getting the party started at a party can be a tough row to hoe for your average DJ. While professional quality DJ equipment can go a long way in making an impact it does not mean anything if you do not have the room on your side.
After you get your turntables and mixer and some tremendous Bluetooth speakers you are going to need to do a few things to become a successful DJ. This week we thought we’d share a few important pointers.
- Hype Them Up: Before the first note drops you and your microphone should be letting everyone in attendance know that you and they are here to party. Enthusiasm is contagious so be enthusiastic.
- Invite Everyone Out to the Dance Floor: At weddings make sure everyone is gathered around for the first dance and do not squander that momentum.
- Start With Some Easy All Ages Hits: Everyone will dance to “Twist and Shout” and “I Want You Back.” Do not make things any harder for yourself by playing your music.
- Do Not Blow Your Wad: Always have some classics to go back to. Never use every tool in your bag right away.
- Pace Yourself: Drinking on the job is often a great DJ perk but do not over do it!
If you appreciate your mobile audio equipment keeping it safe when it’s not in use is as important as keeping it loud when it is in use. Whether you have an in-dash receiver in your car or a complex stereo system in your boat you have to protect it from the elements. That does not just mean rain and wind but the intense burn of a summer sun. Each of these things can be dangerous for sensitive electronic equipment.
Pyle Audio’s commitment to high quality mobile audio equipment extends to our desire to protect said gear. With our high quality car, boat and motorcycle, covers you can guarantee that your vehicle and its contents are safe from a variety of weather phenomena.
With summer here the potential for intense sunlight to damage items in your vehicle is greater than ever. By many accounts we are poised to have one of the hottest summers on record. That means issues with intense heat damaging electronics is a very real threat. With one of our vehicle covers you can be assured that your car’s stereo equipment, a huge investment, is safe from being overheated when it is not in use.
As all of us get more tech savvy our tastes get more discerning. This is a good thing. Gone are the days, hopefully, where a pair of lousy headphones purchased at a deli are good enough. Instead these days we are all a little more likely to plunk down good money on quality professional audio equipment. The quality of that equipment deepens our enjoyment of our music and other entertainment choices.
That extra money invested in quality is often well spent but it is not always necessary. Recently there was a bit of racket made when one multi-billion dollar company spent a few billion to buy a high-end headphone manufacturer. A lot of people like the headphones. They are endorsed by a popular rap artist/producer/impresario. They look unique. One thing they do not do, if a wide array of reviews are to be believed, is sound great. Price does sometimes denote quality but often there are other things at play.
At Pyle Audio we have combined affordability and quality to make great products. Our Bluetooth speakers, headphones, and so many other products are an excellent investment. They offer quality, style, and a good value. Sadly we do not have any popular rappers on our executive board.
Local events are always scrambling at the last minute for important things they simply did not anticipate needing. As a result the places where people rent things like sound and lighting equipment make a huge profit by offering these items at marked up costs. In the end the companies cover the cost of such equipment fairly quickly and soon become businesses with huge profit margins.
For a party DJ owning your own equipment allows you to bill more but it can also allow you to get in on the lucrative rental business. Those large Bluetooth speakers you do not have any plans for this weekend? You could rent them out for a hundred dollars to a family holding a Sweet 16 or a local gala event. That mixer you were just going to leave the cover on this week? A local school might use it for an event in the park.
DJ equipment is a pricey investment but if you use it wisely it is just that, an investment. As the money rolls in from your own gigs and rentals you will cover the cost of equipment and turn a handsome profit in no time.
Be smart and you can make money with quality sound equipment.
With spring here there is a whole lot of new music to contend with. In an effort to soundtrack summers and make the most of their busiest touring season many acts are putting out new music in April, May and June. Some of these are the biggest acts in the world while others are on the hipster margins. We decided to take a look at some of the albums that will be making their way to retro style turntables near you soon:
- Ingrid Michaelson Lights Out: Ingrid Michelson made her name providing heartfelt piano pop to commercials and television shows but on her new album she reaches for bigger pop. Still she cannot help but indulge in some of her bookwormish charm and the album is a rather smart variation on mainstream radio pop.
- Swans To Be Kind: The band Swans returned in 2010 after a decade of dormancy. Since that comeback the post-punk act have almost completely reinvented themselves and found new fans with tense, monolithic and ultimately incredibly stirring rock.
- The Black Keys Turn Blue: The Black Keys have been growing in popularity for years and their latest is being pumped up on mainstream rock radio nationwide.
Getting a retro style turntable will make these and other records really come to life. Check out Pyle Audio for the most stylish way to listen to new music!

While many of us might own docking stations for out iPods or iPhones many of us are unsatisfied with the models we landed a few years back. Right now Pyle Audio is offering incredible discounts on their own brand of iPod docking station that is more stylish, loud, and clear than the other options on the market.
With a two way hi-fi speaker system our docking station is as good as most standard stereo audio setups on the market. This means that you can finally listen to music from your portable music player in a similar quality to that of your home stereo. In fact with one of these systems having a bulky home stereo might even start to feel unnecessary. (Though do not tell that to the audiophiles who prefer the sound of a retro style turntable.)
If your current home theater equipment is lacking that stereo oomph you can also connect this docking station to most other equipment in your home. For a price of less than $100 you can have a one year warranty on a solid sound system that can turn every entertainment you enjoy into something a little easier to appreciate.
Check our site for this and other great deals right now!
Entertaining in the yard is one of the great pleasures of spring and summer weather. You fire up the grill, invite folks over to lounge in the pool or simply to take in the sun. While you do so it is a great idea to have some of the best summer jams piped into your yard.
Bringing your stereo’s full capabilities outside is easier than ever thanks to Bluetooth speakers. By setting up your Bluetooth speakers on the deck or in the backyard you can keep the tunes coming without having to move your bulk stereo at all. Simply set up a great playlist or a collection of your favorite CD’s and fire up the tunes.
As the music pipes into the backyard you will find yourself and your guests having a more rousing time. The sound quality of these Bluetooth speakers is simply undeniable. Great audio fidelity is not something you can general guarantee feet away from the source but Bluetooth technology has made great strides in improving that quality. This is why now more than ever people are using Bluetooth for many of their audio needs.
Enjoy your summer parties and the great tunes that come along with them!
