Amazon Echo Speakers are the best in class
Over the last three Echos, Amazon has improved its digital signal processing and sound quality, and the softened edges here aid with fidelity. The updated Echo also includes Amazon’s AZI Neural Edge processor, which improves speech recognition.
It can be used in any room in the home. It’s great for recipes and timers in the kitchen, news and weather in the bedroom, and shower sing-alongs in the bathroom. It’s small, has good sound, and can do everything you’d want a smart speaker to do. If you’re looking for the best music quality, scroll down to the Echo Studio and Sonos One, which are our preferred Alexa speakers for music listening.
