One of the best things about the age of the iPhone and iPod is just how portable our entertainment has become. That being said, there is still the impulse to crank up tunes without the headphones. Perhaps you like a good playlist while you clean around the house, or maybe you enjoy entertaining guests while you crank up some of your favorite albums. In either case, one of the most convenient ways to do so these days is a stereo that offers you a dock, allowing you to play music from your smartphone or portable music player.
Our 100 Watt 2.1 Multi-media Audio System System pictured here is a great option. Offered directly from our sales site for the low price of $99.99, this is a fine piece of home audio equipment. While it does not offer the ornate charm of a retro style turntable, it is a stylish shape and a conveniently small size. The dock also offers a fantastic audio experience, delivering a wallop not very different from some of our best sets of Bluetooth speakers.
This holiday season, be ready for guests with a fantastic Christmas playlist and this stellar sound system. It is a great option for anyone looking to entertain without breaking the bank.
The variety of pro audio equipment available from Pyle Audio is absolutely staggering. At times it can seem like we spend so much time talking about Bluetooth speakers and other home audio equipment that we forget all of the high quality equipment for musicians available on the site. This is not limited to mere accessories and heavy duty amplifiers—instruments are also available from our store, currently offered at refurbished, deep discounts.
Take for example this beautiful electric guitar. The guitar’s solid quilted maple and mahogany top is perfect for anyone playing guitar and interested in that classic rock look. In fact, similar guitars have been slung by both classic and modern rock bands for decades. You can see similar axes slung over the shoulder of everyone from Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood to Tom Petty.
If you have a music obsessed teenager pestering you for their first guitar, or you have a music obsessed adult simply asking for a new one, this is a great inexpensive gift option! With more than $300 in savings, you are unlikely to find a guitar of this quality for a price anywhere near this. It is undoubtedly one of the hottest deals on our site right now!
If you are a professional disc jockey, you know that each new piece of DJ equipment you buy is an investment. It is an investment not only in your business but in the quality of the work you are doing. Even in 2013 as equipment prices drop daily, far too many so called “professional” DJs lack the equipment vital to entertaining parties across the country. The result is a very profitable rental industry cutting into the profits of the artists and entertainers doing the heavy lifting.
We at Pyle Audio are out to help our customers get the kind of DJ equipment that you need to stop your DJ business from throwing money away on rentals. Take, for example, the 4400 Watt Professional DJ Power Amplifier. It is a perfect example of equipment many new DJs do not consider until they have a gig. The sooner you get your own power amp, though, the sooner your business will be the legitimate force it deserves to be.
These are currently available at our new sales website for a discount of more than $70. By simply owning this power amp, your entire endeavor as a professional DJ looks a whole lot more legitimate.
Struggling to get a word in edgewise at a family event is a plight that many of us will never escape. Whether your extended family amounts to six people or 60 people, it can get loud. Things like toasting a loved one on a special occasion or merely announcing that dinner is ready can become epic battles between meek voices and the din of multiple conversations.
Pyle Audio is highlighting, among a large selection of refurbished home audio equipment currently available for deeply discounted prices, portable PA systems. These are perfect for aspiring singers or just for a family trying to add a little organization to its larger than average celebrations.
Worried you and the family will not get much use out of a portable PA system? You might be surprised by just how often these systems come in handy. Block parties, game night, karaoke in the backyard, there are a wealth of ways to use the machines, and the best part is just how deeply discounted they currently are to buy direct from our website.
Refurbished items from Pyle Audio come with a full one-year warranty. This means they make perfect gifts or a fantastic indulgence for yourself this holiday season.
These days high-quality audio equipment is no longer just a gift for the audiophiles in your life. As home theater and higher quality audio equipment becomes something of a standard, even novices are getting into better fidelity. With the holidays right around the corner, there are a number of great gifts you can purchase for someone whose interest in quality audio is just getting started.
With the resurgence of LPs in the market, this holiday season might just be the perfect time to buy a hungry music fan on your shopping list a new retro-style turntable. Available in a variety of styles, these turntables can hook up to a computer or your larger stereo system. They can offer music fans a new way to catalog and listen to their favorite tunes. Even better, once they have a retro-style turntable of their own, thinking of future gifts becomes a lot easier. Just buy records!
Retro-style turntables balance all of the best things you can look for in a gift. It is thoughtful, stylish, long lasting, and offers the recipient hours of entertainment. You might just be investing in the best gift of the whole holiday season.
Setting up a dining area for the holiday season this year? You might have thought about the centerpiece and given some consideration toward the food, but have you considered the entertainment options available? Although a good portion of the day will be spent sitting in front of the TV watching football (how could you not?), families may want to enjoy background music when they finally sit down for the big meal.
With Bluetooth speakers you can position music away from your dining area far enough to entertain without interrupting. As the meal wraps up, you can once again adjust those speakers for continued football binge-viewing or to watch a movie as a family.
The power of home theater equipment to bring the family together is often underrated. Gathering the family around for some turkey is a great start, but once the meal ends many family members go running for the door. With a pair of stellar Bluetooth speakers and a 60-inch flatscreen, hanging out for a while becomes a lot more appealing.
We are not saying that entertainment should take center stage at your Thanksgiving celebration this year. We are merely suggesting it should be a consideration. Make it a Thanksgiving to remember!
For some of us, the association of car audio is rooted primarily in the summer, where the playlist blasts out bright shining pop songs and big riffed rock. The fall and winter, in this mindset, is no time for high-quality car speakers playing fun jams.
I would argue that the opportunity for a good playlist piping from your in-dash receiver is just as open during the colder months; you might just have to dig a little deeper.
From the icy experimental music of Radiohead’s Kid A and the latest Tim Hecker album to the autumnal burn of folk rock provided by acts like Neil Young, Bright Eyes, and Neko Case, the colder months offer new mixtape options. There is also the desire for warming up in the car that might lead you to play some of your favorite hip-hop or club music. It can keep your mood up and keep you moving while you struggle to stop shivering.
Your car might not be the ideal spot for you during the winter and fall, but there are ways to keep things fun. One way is to keep a myriad of entertainment options at your fingertips at all times. An in-dash receiver can help make that possible.
Mining a relative’s attic or a local yard sale for the untouched gems of a long ignored record collection? The joy of finding something special in crates of records essentially left for dead is a unique and stimulating kind of excitement. Each slab of wax in a beat up record sleeve is a new chance to rediscover music that might have been otherwise abandoned. Placing these records on a retro-style turntable and enjoying them is a special thing.
Of course a worry of many record collectors is that, having been improperly stored for so long, a record might be damaged or more fragile than others. Luckily with the best retro-style turntables you can directly plug an album into your computer to record and catalog all of the music on it. Regular collectors can actively participate in the archiving of decades of music. Whether your interests are obscure jazz albums or mainstream pop, your efforts will allow you to share music that may be out of print with others.
With the ability to share and save music on your computer, collecting physical records is not as old-fashioned as it once seemed—not when a retro-style turntable is involved at least!
“If it’s too loud, you’re too old,” the saying goes. Of course, as you get older those youthful exclamations actually end up having serious consequences. Even though your passion for music has never dulled, your acceptance of explosive sound is countered by a genuine fear of hearing loss. Given the choice between hearing music one more time at ear blistering levels versus listening to music well into old age, you might be compelled to turn the volume down.
Loud sound in general is not the problem. Instead, it is specifically anything at 85 decibels that needs to be avoided. You can still enjoy your Bluetooth speakers or DJ quality headphones. You just need to consider their volume when you listen.
In some ways the clarity of the music itself will increase as well. Music played at excessive decibels can distort in speakers or in even the best DJ headphones. More so, even if the equipment does not distort, your ears themselves are simply not equipped to decipher sound at such extreme volumes.
You can enjoy music well beyond your shortsighted youth as long as you listen responsibly. Do not let flagrantly loud volumes take away the gift of music from you later in life.
The sleek, modern design of sound equipment is defined by plastic and metal. High-quality sound rarely comes from wooden speaker cabinets these days. Instead, metal or plastic Bluetooth speakers that can be moved around freely have begun to populate homes. While the sound quality of these items are undeniable, for some they lack the tactile charm of items made out of wood.
Retro style turntables allow you to have a high performance, rich sounding home audio setup without sacrificing every bit of stylistic warmth. Made from rich mahogany, the model pictured here is just one of our simpler retro turntables. It is perfect for a home trying to maintain some sense of classic design while also incorporating sound equipment built for the modern age.
Equipped with a USB port—perfect for collecting all of your favorite vinyl before you wear it out—this is just one possibility for brightening up your home decor and building out your stereo system. Our site has turntables made to look like old-fashioned gramophones or 70′s style fluorescent-colored options for people looking for something a little less ornate.
If you want your home to look as cool as it sounds, you can hardly do better than these retro style turntables.
