The Source partners with Monster to launch the world's smallest audiophile speaker

Available exclusively at The Source

BARRIE, ON, April 10, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The Source, one of Canada's leading consumer electronics and wireless retailers, has partnered with Monster, the world leader in high-performance personal audio for the exclusive launch of the Monster® SuperStar™, the world's smallest audiophile speaker. Perfect for the on-the-go music lover, this pocket-size speaker can be used for wirelessly listening to music or enhancing the sound quality on smartphones or tablets. The built-in mic also offers speakerphone functionality for taking conference calls via a smartphone.

"We are thrilled to partner with a best-in-class brand like Monster as the exclusive destination for SuperStar in the rapidly growing streaming audio category," said Tracey Elkerton, Vice President of TV and Home Entertainment at The Source. "The Source is one of Canada's leading retailers and our goal is to continue to bring innovative and exclusive products to our customers, making this a well-suited partnership. To the busy music lover, sound quality and portability are equally as important, and the SuperStar delivers the perfect mix of both."

Size Does Matter
The SuperStar's shining quality is no doubt its ultra-compact design that boasts high performance audio featuring Pure Monster Sound and advanced apt-X digital processing for clean, outstanding wireless stereo sound. Unique to the Monster SuperStar is the ability to provide room-filling sound even when lying flat. Standing only two inches off any flat surface, the SuperStar is smaller than most smartphones, yet delivers the clarity, dynamics, articulation, tight bass and sound pressure levels of a full-size speaker.

Its tiny form-factor is really apparent when in the hands of supersized superstar and Monster Brand Ambassador Shaquille O'Neal. As an endorser of the product and brand, O'Neal is excited to be launching this one-of-a-kind product exclusively at The Source nationwide.

"When you think of consumer electronics in Canada, there's no retailer better than The Source," O'Neal said.  I'm very excited that they have agreed to partner with me on the SuperStar product."

Monster SuperStar retails for $139.99 and is available in a range of colours to suit your style. Get it in-store or online at www.thesource.ca.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring.
