The Source Canada: Acoustic Research Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speaker 2 Pack (Refurbished) | Was $250 Now $69 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 23, 2014 at 11:00 AM

The Source Canada: Acoustic Research Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speaker 2 Pack (Refurbished) | Was $250 Now $69 (EXPIRED)

For a limited time, you can save big on some high quality wireless speakers at The Source! If you act fast, you can nab some refurbished Acoustic Research Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speakers for just $68.73! What makes this deal so enticing is the fact that they normally retail for $249.99. Purchasing these speakers will also qualify you for free shipping. If you’ve been looking for a wireless speaker solution that’s compatible with smartphones, then these Acoustic Research Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speakers should easily accommodate your needs.

These Acoustic Research Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speakers are very versatile – not only can you connect your smartphone to it, but you can also use each speaker independently if you want to. Let’s say your husband wants to listen to his music while working in the backyard – he can still do that while you’re listening to your own music that’s playing from the other wireless speaker that you’re listening to indoors.

You can also choose to have these speakers connected to an electrical outlet, or you can make them completely portable by putting 6 AA batteries in each speaker. You’ll also be able to enjoy crystal clear reception for up to 45 metres.

I have some wireless speakers hooked up to my television set (it’s an affordable surround sound solution at the moment), and I really enjoy them. They’re also great for any time that I need to get some chores done, since they can play back my music clearly without any issues. I did have a Centrios wireless speaker dock that didn’t work very well, but my new wireless speakers work great.

Similar Acoustic Research wireless speakers currently cost $138.99 at Costco (you’ll also need a membership), and $129.99 on Amazon.  These Acoustic Research Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speakers have some great reviews, and I’ve included a snippet of one review from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

I have had it running for about 10 hours on a single set of six AA batteries and they have not shown any sign of weakening yet… This is a great speaker and a useful tool. There are many options for portable wireless speakers, but this one is reasonably priced and the wireless signal and the sound quality are very good. I am having a lot of fun with this.

These clearance deals at The Source don’t last long, so get these speakers while you still can! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

The Source: Etron Soulra Solar Powered iPhone iPod Speaker Dock (Refurbished) Was $250 Now $63

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 10:00 AM

The Source: Etron Soulra Solar Powered iPhone iPod Speaker Dock (Refurbished) Was $250 Now $63

I love the smell of new deals on Monday mornings! In this case, The Source is offering online bargain hunters the opportunity to save big on a solar powered speaker dock! For a limited time, you can pick up a refurbished Etron Soulra Solar Powered iPhone / iPod Speaker Dock for just $62.97 - it normally retails for $249.99 brand new! By purchasing this unique speaker dock, you’re also eligible for free standard shipping, which is always a nice bonus.

Splash proof and solar powered, the Etron Soulra Speaker Dock is something that can really come in handy when you’re going to a beach, or are going on a camping adventure. Hey, it can even be useful during a lazy day in your backyard! However, for days that aren’t too sunny, there’s no need to fret – this solar powered speaker dock also comes with an AC adapter that you can plug into the wall.

Whether you plan to use this dock strictly indoors or outdoors, it really is an interesting unit. Even if you don’t have an iPhone or an iPod, you shouldn’t have any problems playing music from your smart phone or portable audio device on this speaker dock, since it has a built in audio line input.

At this time, there are many speaker docks flooding the market, so it can be tough to stand out from the rest – especially when there are so many familiar brand names available. On the other hand, this speaker dock’s solar capabilities really make it intriguing to me.

On Amazon, the Etron Soulra Solar Powered Speaker Dock sells for $141.62, and it retails for $199.95 at Best Buy. I’ve included a brief review from a satisfied Amazon customer below.

We took the Soulra to the beach and I loved the idea of not worrying about battery life! It’s so nice to finally see an ipod player out on the market that is solar powered. As a mother on the go, having a place to charge my ipod and play it makes my life so much easier!

There tends to be limited quantities in stock for refurbished items that are available at The Source, so if you’re looking for a new speaker dock, act quickly and order this while it’s still available. Here’s to hoping that you all have a great, productive Monday!

Newegg Canada: Over 70% off JBL Speakers

Posted by on July 16, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Newegg Canada: Over 70% off JBL Speakers

Newegg Canada is offering just over 70% off JBL Speakers for your home entertainment system.

I know a lot about headphones because I take most of my music directly: shot straight into my head. However, home speakers are rather outside my scope so bear with me on this post. Now, there are two speakers on sale for a good chunk of savings. First off, you have the JBL Studio 180 6.5″ 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker which was $349.99 and is on sale for $99.99 + $28.63 shipping. That shipping may seem a bit high, but as you are saving 71% on the speaker alone, and a speaker is a pretty big and heavy piece, I think it is worth it. This speaker boasts the following stats:

  • Frequency Response: (-3dB) 45Hz – 22kHz
  • Crossover Frequencies: 800Hz, 3.2kHz, 6dB/octave
  • 8 Ohms 200W
  • 89dB(2.83V@1m)

If anyone would like to chime in what that actually means, be my guest. The reviews on these speakers are mixed, with most the reviews being good with the occasional negative thrown in. The latest reviewer gave a quick rundown on the pros and cons according to him:

Pros: Well constructed cabinets and drivers. Very good low end and balanced by a bright high end that’s not shrill.

Cons: The speaker covers are kind of ugly, with the cheap plastic look.

For just a few more dollars, you can buy the JBL Studio 1 Series Studio 190 Home Audio Speaker Single, which was $449.99, for only $126.99 + $19.99 shipping. I have no idea why the shipping is cheaper on this model, but it does help to balance out the few extra dollars you are spending on the speaker. This speaker has the following stats:

  • Frequency Response: (-3dB) 40Hz – 22kHz
  • Crossover Frequencies: 800Hz, 3.2kHz, 6dB/octave
  • 8 Ohms 200W
  • 90 db @ 1 watt, 1 meter

Also, this speaker has far more favourable reviews with a near perfect 5/5 eggs. One gentleman has owned these for over a year and he said:

These 190′s did not disappoint! Crisp airy highs and thunderous lows with a fast attack that makes rock and modern music sizzle. Yet, put on some classical and the strings sound as if they are in the room with you – with all the texture of a live performance. Truly amazing. What’s even more amazing is that there must have been a break in period because they sound even better now.

At just over 70% off their original price, I figured this might be a good deal for any audiophiles out there.

Memory Express Canada: Harman Kardon Nova Wireless Speakers Only $270

Posted by on June 6, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Memory Express Canada: Harman Kardon Nova Wireless Speakers Only $270

Memory Express has a great deal on if you are looking for a pair of high-quality wireless speakers, which I am. The Harman Kardon Nova wireless speakers in white are only $269.99, saving you $60 off the regular price of $329.99. I tried to price compare these particular speakers with other online Canadian retailers and didn’t see them. However, I did see them at Amazon.com, where they sell for $299.99 USD, so I’m going to say this is a very good deal.

Sad for me, but all I have to listen to music on is my computer. Obviously the sound is not the greatest and I’d love to get some external speakers that will work to play music from my computer or phone. Although I’m used to crappy sound, I’d really like something high quality, as I think I deserve it!

These speakers have 40 watts of power with a bass boost function giving the best audio experience. It is compatible with any device, so anywhere I have music, I can play it wirelessly on these speakers.

Since I am not really an audiophile, I thought I’d look up some serious reviews for you, like this one from PCmag, which basically says the sound is “crisp and beautiful”. They also talk about what they don’t like about these speakers, which is valid information for any potential buyer.

The reviews on Amazon are mixed, with a 3.3 star rating out of 5. My favourite review (of course) was one where the reviewer was listening to Pearl Jam and said that the speakers really did justice to Eddie Vedder’s voice. That, my friends, sold me right there. I also like how cute looking these little speakers are, as some wireless speakers have very ugly designs.

Shipping for these speakers will be a flat rate of $8.99 through Canada Post. Since you are saving $60, this isn’t too bad.

Walmart Canada: iHome Bluetooth Rechargeable Stereo Speaker Only $48

Posted by on May 21, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Walmart Canada: iHome Bluetooth Rechargeable Stereo Speaker Only $48

If you need a cool, Bluetooth speaker with the iHome name, Walmart has the purple double speaker on clearance for $48, was $69. I tried to price compare but could only find the single speaker available, which Walmart sells for $39. This means you are only paying $9 more for the second speaker.

While the purple colour might throw off the traditionalists, I think this is great for an outdoor space or a teen’s room. This could make a wonderful end of year, good job on the straight A’s gift for your child or teen. My kids are young, so they have cheap radios in their room, but they are already at the blasting their ear off stage with New Direction or my younger kids love barnyard songs sung by little kids. Either way, I love to foster their appreciation of music.

Basically, if you don’t know the deets, you’ll stream music from your iPhone, iPad, or other Bluetooth-enabled device to this high-quality and sound device. The 2-in-1 cable gives you the ability to chage the speaker with a USB and a plugin. If you wanted even more sound, and you know we do, you can connect even more speakers.

Of course this item will also ship for free from Walmart.

Shop.ca: Fluance High Performance Speaker Only $99.96

Shop.ca: Fluance High Performance Speaker Only $99.96

Shop.ca has the Fluance Fi30 high performance wireless bluetooth wood speaker system with enhanced audio on sale for only $129.96. You might be wondering why I have the title saying it is only $99.96. Well, if you are a PayPal member, you may have received an email from them stating that if you shopped through Shop.ca and spent over $75, and pay with PayPal, you’ll get another $25 off. Also, use our exclusive promo code to get yourself another $10 off. This nets you the speaker at just under $100.

If you don’t have a PayPal account, or didn’t get the email, you might not feel happy at the sale price of $129.96, but it is still better than other retailers. Amazon is selling this speaker system for $149.99, and so does Fluance. This makes it the better deal, even without the PayPal discount. You can also use any rewards points you may have (as a new member those might be $25) and you can get Aeroplan points on your purchase too. What a score!

You can buy the speaker system in either piano black or glacier white. Fluance is a very well-known name in audio quality, so you know this speaker will impress. I also love the way it looks, as it is very simple and would fit in anywhere you put it. Unlike a plastic speaker, a wood speaker system suppresses resonance for more accurate response and increased warmth. Basically, it sounds better.

Shipping is always free on anything you buy at Shop.ca, so you’ll enjoy this perk too.

The Source Canada: 50% off Headrush Speakers

Posted by on April 10, 2014 at 8:30 PM

The Source Canada: 50% off Headrush Speakers

There is a selection of Headrush speakers at The Source on sale for 50% of their original price right now.

So franky, I think the bluetooth speaker is the best thing since the iPhone. Mostly because I connect my iPhone wirelessly to my bluetooth speaker all the time to magically stream tunes from my hand, table, or pocket to the ears of my friends and family. I even bring my speaker to class when I do presentations to play some nice background music or an intro tune to bring joy to all the little boys and girls.

If you don’t have a bluetooth speaker, you need one. This Headrush Pop-Up Speaker is your most budget-friendly option. Originally $19.99, it is now on sale for $9.99. Reviewers have said it is a great sounding unit for the cost.

If your budget can handle a bit more then you have several sweet options. This Headrush NFC/Bluetooth Speaker with interchangeable faceplates was $49.99 and is now $24.99. The Headrush Swiftbeat Speaker is another excellent choice at this price point as it also originally cost $49.99 and is now $24.99. What is great about these units is they both qualify for free shipping right now because The Source is currently allowing orders of $20 or more to ship for free. Bonus!

Last but not least, the Headrush Backbeat speaker in your choice of black or white is discounted from $99.99 down to $49.99.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Libratone Zipp AirPlay Speaker Only $300

Chapters Indigo Canada: Libratone Zipp AirPlay Speaker Only $300

Chapters Indigo has a fantastic deal on the Libratone Zipp AirPlay speaker, now only $300, was $450. I price compared this item at Apple where it is $399.95 and I couldn’t find it any other online Canadian retailer. At Amazon.com it is $366.67. So, you are definitely getting a steal with this speaker.

This portable speaker isn’t just an audio fantasy, it is a showpiece. It comes with three Italian wool covers in three different colours to suit your mood – pepper black, raspberry read and icy blue.

The Libratone Zipp Airplay has PlayDirect, which is a technology that eliminates the need for a wi-fi access point or router for you to wirelessly stream your music. It also has FullRoom technology, which means no matter where you are in the room, the music will be just as clear as it would be on the other side of the room.

I totally need a speaker for my music as listening to it on my computer really bites. I love that I can dress up this speaker as I’d like it and the covers look durable and long-lasting. The audiophile reviewer of this speaker says he/she is absolutely “flabbergasted” by the quality of this speaker.

Shipping would be free on this item.

PhoneGala.com: Palo Alto Audio Design Cubik HD Speakers for only $65 (Was $200)

Posted by on January 14, 2014 at 9:15 AM

PhoneGala.com: Palo Alto Audio Design Cubik HD Speakers for only $65 (Was $200)

Cool looking and good sounding? Remind me of myself never! Hey-ooooh! Get these speakers for super cheap from PhoneGala!

I had never heard of PhoneGala.com before today. Some guy walked up to me, spit in my face, punched me in the throat then, as I was laying on the ground, he took out a sticky note and a pen, wrote “PhoneGala, Palo Alto Cubik, $65″ and stuck it to my chest with a thumb tack. Naturally I yelled after him and asked “Why would you use a thumb tack?! It’s a sticky note! They’re self adhesive, it’s right in the name!” He didn’t say anything so I turned my attention to the note. It sounded like a good deal so I checked it out. As it turns out, it is an exceptionally good deal. These speakers are normally $200 but you get them for only $65! That’s $135 off!

It sounded like an MSRP before price though and maybe they were being sold for $70 everywere else and $65 here. Well, I started looking for other retailers selling these and it seems pretty much everyone sells these for $200+. This is a legit good deal.

And if you’re worried about the quality, I found them being sold on the Apple website. If Apple is selling them, you know they are good quality. As much as I don’t really like them, they don’t sell low grade crap.

Shipping is free and, if you aren’t sure if the site is trustworthy, they are owned by the same people who run 123inkcartridges, PrimeCables and FactoryGlobal.

Get up to 70% off home theatre and speakers at Amazon this week.

Any audiophile or just a person who loves music or great sounds would love speakers or a home theatre system as a gift this year. I have a crappy system set up to my television and I use my computer to listen to music. Totally not ideal. My kids have also showed an interest in music and I’d like to get them some sort of system for their rooms – for when they are cleaning it – in my dreams.

This Hipo by Ivation waterproof bluetooth stereo shower speaker and handsfree speaker phone is perfect for all those calls you need to do in the shower. Usually, I try to wait until I’m out of the shower, but this could be fun. Was $99.99, now $49.99.

This iKross portable speaker is totally cute! Was $49.99, now $29.99.

I’d love this I-Tec iStereo wireless speakers and charging station for my kitchen. Was $149.99, now $83.66.

Dealfind Canada: $29 For Bluetooth Shower Speaker

Dealfind Canada: $29 For Bluetooth Shower Speaker

Dealfind has a good deal on a Bluetooth shower speaker, that is compatible with all your Apple and Android devices. Pay only $29 (tax included) and it has a $90 value.

As with any Dealfind deal, the link above takes you to the main page and you’ll have to find the speaker on your own. Hopefully it won’t be too tedious.

I searched out other Bluetooth waterproof speakers and couldn’t find one at this low of a price point. This is a generic unit with no brand name and no details on how great it works. I’d call this a cheapie speaker. This is the type of speaker you won’t mind getting a bit of rough use, since you are paying less than $30 for it.

It has a suction cup to attach to the shower wall, but you can also use it wherever you like, including at the beach or pool, where it might get wet, but its ok.

You can get it in blue, green, yellow or pink and all of its technical details are listed on the deal.

Shipping is $9.

The Source Canada: Acoustic Research Wireless Speakers Only $124.99

Get a two-pack of Acoustic Research indoor/outdoor wireless speakers in black for only $124.99, which is half-price of the original $249.99. I price compared this item and nowhere, even Costco, has it cheaper or even close to this price.

Take your music to the cottage, boat, camping, in your own backyard or even your kitchen with these wireless indoor/outdoor speakers. They are very easy to use, as you simply plug them in and play your music. With a 2″ tweeter and 3″ woofer, they deliver superior sound quality up to 150′ from the transmitter. You can use the speakers independently by connecting your MP3 player or smartphone into the input on the speaker. You’ll need six AA batteries. Better check out that Well.ca Duracell deal!

Lots of batteries or not, this is a handy technological item to have, especially at 50% off. Once my patio is complete (in like 2019), and we have our shed in place, we are going to need music out there, and these speakers would be perfect.

One reviewer who gave it five stars said:

I was amazed how good the sound came from the speakers, and I know that I will really enjoy them

Shipping is $4.99.

The Source Canada: Save 60% on Wireless Rechargable Speakers

The Source Canada has a great deal happening right now.  You will be able to get their inStudio Rockhampton waterproof rechargeable wireless speakers on sale for 60% off the regular price.

These speakers (#4019099) were priced at $199.99 and are now just $78.88. Even though they are a good price, it is always nice to see some customers reviews before buying to see what you will be getting.

Here are a couple of customer reviews:

This is our 4th purchase of these wireless speakers. We own a pair and enjoyed them so much that we purchased others for family and friends. They sound OK, don’t expect much bass but the convenience is excellent. Their range is quite excellent as we use them throughout the house and at various places outside in the yard. Very easy to setup, just plug into the wall power and plug into your music source. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys taking music with them when they work or play. – Johnny Wii

I bought these speakers today along with the 3 year warranty for 29$. It is an AMAZING product. Loud, Portable, Amazing quality, and the lights on the side are a huge bonus.- WIC Robotics

These speakers are waterproof with IPX7 rating, rechargeable and they’re wireless too.  They would be perfect for camping, or to use on your deck.  They would also be great for anyone that has a pool.  You won’t have to worry about water getting on them when the kids splash around in the pool.  They can be used with any music playing device with a 3.5mm connection. Included is a 3.5mm cable and an adapter for the transmitter which is a nice little bonus.

As for the cost of shipping, it will be free because they offer free shipping for orders of $20 or more right now.
