Etekcity EA-TR1 Bluetooth Reciever and Transmitter

Before you toss those old electronics, you may want to consider investing in a device that breathes new life into products that might seem outdated, such as this Etekcity EA-TR1 Bluetooth Reciever and Transmitter, currently 64 percent off on Amazon.

The Etekcity EA-TR1 is an upgraded and lightweight 2-in-1 Bluetooth V4.1 transmitter and receiver that you can use individually or in dual mode, so you can pair two headphones or speakers at once. Featuring aptX Low Latency technology, you get a latency lower than 98 percent of other devices and an end-to-end lag time reduced up to 30 milliseconds. This means you can watch your favorite shows and movies and listen to high-clarity sound in perfect synchronization.

Use the Etekcity EA-TR1 in transmitter mode to enjoy a private movie night using headphones, or to play music from old MP3 or CD players. The transmitter and receiver smartly remembers the last device it was paired with in both transmitter and receiver mode, to save you time and energy.

The Etekcity EA-TR1 Bluetooth Reciever and Transmitter normally retails for $100 but is currently slashed in price to just $36 on Amazon, saving you $64 (64 percent).

Polk Audio RC60i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers

Adding speakers to any room can upgrade your lifestyle, but bulky speakers often take away from the aesthetics of your home. Opt for unobtrusive speakers that won’t put a dent in your home decor such as these Polk Audio RC60i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers.

These speakers provide excellent clarity, equipped with a 6.5-inch dynamic-balance, polymer-composite cone with a rubber surround and a frequency response rate of 40 to 20kHz. You don’t have to be nearby to hear sound from these speakers. Balance drivers and amiable tweeters ensure spacious imaging, above-average clarity, and most importantly well-balanced sound no matter where you are. 

Constructed out of durable, moisture-resistant materials, these speakers are perfectly safe to use in bathrooms, saunas, or even outdoor sitting areas. They have a simple three-step installation process, and you can even paint them to match your decor so they practically disappear.

This pair of Polk Audio RC60i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers normally retails for $250 but are currently discounted to just $100 on Amazon, saving you $150 (60 percent).

The tower comes with a sixth-generation Intel Core processor that allows you to move in and out of applications quicker than ever — even video editing or extreme gaming. The 32GB DDR4 2133MHz memory further supports a fast experience, as does the built-in DW1560 802.11ac + BT wireless and solid state drive. If gaming is your priority, you’re more than covered: This tower has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB DDR5 graphics card and 60W power supply to support graphics upgrades up to 225W.
