Emerging Influential Blogs 2014 Writing Project

Hey Blogger: The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2014

Once again I am participating in Digital Filipino’s annual writing project to recognize the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs of 2014.
With the many platforms and tutorials online, it’s easy to learn how to publish your own blog if you want to. But creating a blog with an impact is another matter. As a blogger, I know it takes a lot of time and effort to produce original, well-written content that will be read by a wide audience, and at the same time, have a positive impact with readers.

Sounding Off on Top Quality Speakers

To get the best possible audio experience from your sound system, you need to get top quality speakers.   If you don’t have the right speakers, your audio setup won’t amount for much. Choosing the right speaker for the job  can make the difference between listening to non-distinctive, no impact sound and a rich, audio experience.
There are speaker systems for every type and size of venue, and every budget, but, as in most cases, you will get what you pay for. This means that spending more money not only gets you  better sound, it also gives you something that’s more compact and portable. A high-end system might be expensive, but it probably takes up less than half the space of a similar system built using lower cost parts, and most likely still sounds better. What’s best then is to get the best speakers that your money can buy.
