    Excellent Echo Stereo Accessory

    I had purchased an Amazon Echo 2nd Generation about a year ago and enjoyed the full sound quality from the speaker. I later decided to purchase another Amazon Echo 2nd Generation and see what the Echo Stereo Pair feature was about. Not only does the speaker pair make for a realistic surround sound effect but that the speakers will balance the volume out between the 2 speakers during playback.

    It was hard to believe that they could actually improve over the original Echo but making it more compact and a choice of covers (Love the dark wood look) adding an output port to feed your sound system. And able to control many WIFI enabled units from Lights, Power Switchs, Garage Doors, with more to come. Far exceeds my hopes and needs. Can't wait to see what they do next !

    I love how many things you can do with device from asking it the weather, sport scores, how big it the earth, track my package from Amazon, controlling lights in the house, etc. This is a great voice activated device. You can play songs from Amazon music, control your Fire stick to find movies, etc. with your voice. Great product, good sound, and it has a ton of skills in the app you can add.

    as owner of 5 previous echos(2original,2 dots, and 1show)i looked forward to a new and improved version.having read reviews of this new one ,i was a little apprehensive about the sound quality.the sound. to my ears,the sound is at least as good as original models.the quickness of the response time to queries is very fast. i am satisfied with price($99) and do recommend whenever i can.

    I decided to replace the dot that was in my office with this new Echo. My other echo is in the Living room and I've enjoyed it for a year now, so getting another was not a hard decision. What I liked with this 2nd generation Echo was that I got it with the walnut sleeve to match the wood furniture in the office.

    I have been dying to get myself into an Alexa for a while now and Black Friday was the time to get it! I love it, makes listening to music, checking the weather, and other little tasks so much easier! If you’re looking at starting to upgrade your house to a smart house, Alexa is the way to go!

    When i went ahead and purchased Alexa i was not too sure if it was going to do everything it says it wud do but i must say it does and now it's actually holding a conversation with u. My son loves talking to Alexa and when they have there conversations it's hilarious.

    I bought one, at a great price, here, and then bought two more, I love them !! The sound is clear, the music I play every day, in all the rooms, best things I bought, very happy with them, and the set up, took all of maybe 5 minutes !!

    We absolutely love our Amazon Echo! It's a really great addition to our smart home. As I am a Prime member it's wonderful to have access to so much music, trivia, knowing when shipments will arrive. It's also so cool to be able to program timers, etc.

    Not only is Alexa a great voice assistant, but I think the Amazon Echo sounds as good as my Bose Wave system. I also love all of the skills that the Alexa platform allows you to control everything from smart lighting to Music

    I love this speaker! I don't need to pair a speaker with this one because it sounds great by itself! Very well built and solid feeling. Has some weight to it so I know that makes me feel like its a better quality speaker! And the walnut color makes it blend in with our decor!

    We have one in every room and it's nice that we can ask to play music in all the devices. She has a hard time understanding Spanish words and sometimes we've noticed that she replies from other rooms (not the one we are in). Overall a good buy to help you at home or office

    I have been looking to purchase this product for a while now but i was sceptical. But now that i have it, i love the interaction with Alexa and how she is learning wat i like. Giving her my demand and her doing it or asking me a question is pretty cool

    I like the Amazon Echo devices. I have a Echo dot and wanted to try this new Echo. My choice wasn't in vain and I like it and you will like it too. I think the Silver finish looks better compared to the fabrics and the wood/sandstone finishes.

    Pleasantly surprised with the ease of setup and allows control of satellite TV with voice commands. Still learning all the possibilities, setting up a couple of awkward electrical outlets now. I should have bought earlier!

    Takes everything that’s excellent about the Echo speaker and makes it classy for those who want a more elegant look. Totally worth the slight premium to buy this version of the Echo.

    We love our Echo with Oak finish. The Echo’s voice technology is superb and get’s all our voices right the first time. It replaced our clock radio in our bedroom. The oak finish really gives it a higher end look.
