Here it is, 2014, and we are definitely living in a digital age...It seems that the cassette tapes and even CD's I grew up with are just about obsolete, and even becoming a thing of the past. I can't say I am surprised though. Digital media is so much more convenient and even more cost-effective, since you can download your favorite music by the album or even by the song! In my home, we have tons of devices that support digital downloads. I have a MacBook Pro as well as a Windows based laptop, and we also have iPods, Zunes, and a PlayMG.
So of course, we don't want to be restricted to wearing earbuds constantly when we're jamming out to some awesome tunes. This is where a wireless speaker comes in handy! Wireless speakers allow you to share the music you love with those around you at parties, during a romantic evening at home, or well, anywhere!
So when I got the chance to check out the amazing DECK Wireless Speaker from SOL REPUBLIC, I was beyond excited. SOL REPUBLIC is a brand I have heard wonderful things about, since they are known for their high quality, stylish audio gear.

Our Review of the DECK Wireless Speaker :
We received the DECK Wireless Speaker in Vivid Red to check out for ourselves. (Red isn't your cup of tea? No worries! It's also available in other fun colors like Lemon Lime, Electro Blue, and Gunmetal!)
This speaker is about the size of a paperback book, and has some weight to it. This, my friends, is a good thing, since all speakers with a sub-woofer should be sturdy. It also has a rubberized base that allows the DECK to play flawlessly with no vibrations, even with some booming bass. No annoying rattling and shaking sounds here! No, siree!
Pairing your devices with the DECK is simple and requires absolutely no passwords. You can also plug your devices right into the unit when wireless pairing isn't convenient!
The DECK offers a generous 300 ft range, which is perfect for all those social gatherings. (Thing BBQ...Yes, I realize it's winter and half of the country is in some freaky deep freeze. Spring is coming, though. I promise!)
The battery life is also quite generous. You can get up to 10 hours of jamming time per battery charge. So this speaker is dependable and can party long into the night, should you so desire.
The DECK also offers 360 degree sound. So no matter where you are in relation to the unit, you will hear nothing but crisp, clear high quality audio. And the sound is amazingly consistent. We listen to all kinds of music here from rap and R&B to country to hard rock and metal, and literally everything in between. No matter what the genre, this speaker offers a very pleasant listening experience.
But I think the coolest feature of the DECK has got to be Heist Mode. This fun feature allows up to 5 users to wirelessly control the music! This is perfect for parties, since it allows several people to play DJ at once!
So for example, if I get sick and tired of the hubby's Death Metal, I can stealthily switch it out for some Bruno Mars. And when my teen gets tired of my swooning, he can use his iPod Touch to play his favorite, Lady Gaga. And so on, and so forth. Of course if this feature becomes a nuisance, it can be turned off.
Overall, we are incredibly pleased with the SOL REPUBLIC DECK. This speaker is super-stylish, ultra-portable, and delivers fantastic sound quality. For such a small speaker, this baby is loud and produces crystal clear sound for your enjoyment. At at $199.99, it's competitively priced and worth every penny, in my humble opinion. So ladies, if you're looking for a great Valentine's Day gift for that someone special, definitely check out the DECK Wireless Speaker. You're sure to earn some major brownie points from the tech or music lover in your life!
