Audioengine HD3 wireless speakers

When our own Bill Henderson reviewed the Audioengine HD3 wireless speakers, he said:

If you judge a speaker by how it is to be used (and you should), then Audioengine’s HD3 wireless speakers are about as perfect as you can get.

That’s high praise for these small bookshelf sized speakers that feature a built-in DAC and have Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

    Sadly, my current phone is just an older Dumb Phone (CHEAP airtime, no real games tho.) Getting a Samsung S3 or better pretty soon though.
    So I play on the Nook HD+ tablets instead.
    Often Sudoku, Mahjong, or “Flight Pilot”, sort of in equal rotation.
    Non-Gaming I guess would be either WUnderground’s weather app and/or the News/Weather App I have on there.

    And I am also a newsletter subscriber, now; Been a while since I bought that PC110 🙂 (BTW the newsletter subscription page says “In the meantime, browse our complimentary selection of free resources:” but there are no free resources listed there.)
