outdoor audio installation and the inconvenience of not having localized
control over the music source. Eight months, many late nights and a ton of
fun later, we developed DeckTunes.
Several years and lots of happy customers
later, we improved upon the concept by redesigning DeckTunes in 2010 and we
incorporated many of the most frequently requested enhancements. Our
customers spoke...we listened and delivered!
