Cables To Go Audio Unlimited 2.4 GHz Wireless Indo&hellip
This Audio Unlimited Wireless Speaker is big, measuring approximately 10-1/4 inches long, 13-3/8 inches tall, and 6-1/2 inches wide. It is also heavy, weighing 8 pounds with the batteries installed. Its size and weight are advantageous to an outdoor speaker, making it physically more secure. Furthermore, there are two blue LED lights at the underside, which can be turned on or off. They serve to mark the speaker's location when it is outdoor in the dark. The speaker is splash proof - all the control buttons are of the membrane variety and the open jacks are covered with small rubber panels. Its sleek design includes an integral handle. It makes the speaker highly portable.

Some tips are useful and informative; others are superficial or common knowledge and not particularly helpful. Even though it is… Read more

This book is useful for persons in retirement or about to retire and children of parents in similar situation. The book is well-organized with icons, check items, shaded windows, etc. It is an easy and informative read. I recommend this… Read more
