gigikoo, 14 Oct 2020any suggestions? thanks in advance, mateAny sound system with Bluetooth ought to work.
There are plenty mini and micro hifi systems with that.
Denon, Onkyo, Pioneer, Yamaha, Sony, Philips... Take your pick based on how much money you want to spend.
An interesting alternative is dedicated wireless amplifiers. They're sort of made for that. With that you can find fun things like tube amplifiers and all sorts of things made to create a distinct tonality.

If you want better sound, buy real sound. There are infinite alternatives that connects to your Echo Dot or have Alexa or Google's services built in.

I wonder why Apple aren't talking about privacy in terms of this product?

Although, I still have a homepod in every room even though I have multiple echos in every room as I still love the Apple specific features. But these new feature are really cool, I hope the older homepods will get an update. I just purchased an Echo Auto to use similar features these homepods provide , but these homepods made it better. I can use both echo auto and carplay simultaneously in my car. So convenient.

This is the lowest priced thing from Apple. I was in need of a good Bluetooth speaker lately. Might give this a try.
