Hurry! Chromecast Audio is $20 off - grab one before they sell out forever

All you have to do is plug in its 3.5mm line-out and Micro USB power cable, and then you're good to go. It even supports multi-room audio. Having setup this dinky device ourselves, we were at one point using it every day. It was affordable enough to buy without really thinking about, simple to use, and it supported all our favourite services. There was very little to complain about. It was the perfect device to breathe...

And that's why it's such a shame Google is discontinuing the dongle today. The company provided The Verge with this statement:
Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy audio. We have therefore stopped manufacturing our Chromecast Audio products...
