Music all around

Yes, there seem to be more music all around during the festive season. People are in good cheer. Why not turn the volume up a bit? Or allow it to be turned up a bit. We have a selection of Bluetooth speakers and PC speakers on sale; any of them will make a nice gift.

Consider the new Canyon BSP-8 Bluetooth speaker. Canyon introduces it as follows –

The new Canyon portable wireless speaker is ready to blast your all-time favorites. Rated at 10 Watts, it is a travel-sized powerhouse. Rounded shapes, compact size, and a neat little handle make it a perfect companion for a trip or a countryside party with your friends! The RGB backlight on top will look awesome after dark, and you can easily find the playback control buttons there. Enjoy up to 3 hours of music while being connected with Bluetooth, and once the battery dies – just plug it in with about any Type-C cable. Besides, you can use AUX, USB, or a MicroSD memory card as your media source. We truly recommend using Bluetooth – what’s better than switching playlists on the fly? As far as 10 meters from the speaker, the connection remains stable.
