Engadget Review

The Echo Plus is Amazon's flagship Alexa speaker, and it finally has audio quality to live up to that billing. Audiophiles will continue to look elsewhere for streaming music speakers, but for everyone else, the Echo Plus is a good-sounding speaker with full access to Alexa's many capabilities.
