Agreed. I heard one when visiting my step daughter in Dublin. Not hifi but not unpleasant. She asked for some Aerosmith for me and Alexa put it on.Ordinaryman wrote: ↑Wed Jan 15, 2020 4:56 pmAt Christmas we received an Amazon echo from my daughter "bless her" as I possibly drove her and her brother mad with my music constantly being played in the house. Since then it's been in the kitchen and used regularly , what surprised me was how easy it is to listen to. Not " hifi" I know but remarkably pleasant for such a small device, it also has the ability to sound good wherever you are in the room. How do they do that? Plus I get voice control not suggesting anyone should get one But it is far better than the "radio" that was there before! Currently listening to " smooth jazz " not everyone's single malt but heyho I like it.
