DJTECH Cube 50 Portable Rechargeable Speaker with Amplifier

DJTECH Cube 50 Portable Rechargeable Speaker with Amplifier

Over the years I’ve had a number of Australian Apple User Groups ask me for suggestions on a suitable portable public address system for use at their meetings. Unfortunately there weren’t many selections available at a reasonable price. There were plenty that I had investigated myself, but most started around the $1,000 mark and sky rocketed from there. Obviously, these are out of reach of most Apple User Groups.

Well, now I’ve found one for under $300… and until November 30, 2012, for this price you can add a couple of useful extras for a similar price! Continue reading »
