Promising Review: "The Echo was packed tight and well protected. It arrived early. ... The sound was superb [and] can fill the room and sound nice and clear with deep smooth bass. I paired with the Sub Bass. It sounded even better. The quality sound can compete with more expensive brand named sound systems. Amazon has done a nice job with this."
Promising Review: "Amazon quality and technology synced together flawlessly. I have two Fire TVs, Kindles, and use Alexa on my phone but my home is not a "Smart Home," which is why it has taken me so long to purchase this. Wish I hadn't waited! The sound quality is amazing and is so simple to use! I love how it syncs with my phone and is hands free! Alexa is my new friend!"
Promising Review: "I purchased two of these to achieve true stereo. The updated spherical design is a great update to the column design. Although the speakers are physically small, they are relatively heavy. The sound quality is superb and the volume is more than adequate. Set up was easy using the app. These are great addition to my family room."
Promising Review: "My best friend had one and I instantly wanted one and I love how you can customize it. I even linked mine to my TV to turn on and other things this little clock/radio/remote does it all."
Promising Review: "This is an AWESOME device for my old 2012 Silverado that has no Bluetooth. Works seamlessly with Alexa, Amazon music and [any] other streaming services. I have a cheap Samsung A7 Android phone and together they pair beautifully."
