Engadget Review

If you're looking for a voice-activated speaker and want excellent sound quality, the Google Home Max is the best option on the market. It's expensive, but you get a lot for your money. If you want great audio and don't want to mess around with more complicated speaker setups, the Home Max is a solid option.

Pros
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Simple setup
  • All the features of the Google Assistant
  • Tasteful design
  • 3.5mm jack and Bluetooth support for additional audio devices
Cons
  • Expensive, especially for a stereo pair
  • Somewhat limited streaming service selection (but at least it has Spotify)
  • Third-party support still trails Amazon's Alexa ecosystem
