Amazon is selling its own third-generation Echo smart speaker with built-in Alexa with a 40% discount applied on its website. Consumers usually snap this speaker up for around the $100 mark but can grab it right now for just $59.99 for what is likely to be a limited period of time.

Aside from the smaller and cheaper Echo Dot, it’s probably safe to say that this particular Echo is Amazon’s most popular voice-controlled smart speaker thanks to its affordability and functionality. This is Amazon’s third-generation offering and has managed to find a place in the hearts and homes of people all over the world.

Meet Echo

All the benefits of Alexa, now with noticeably improved sound and a new look. Enjoy premium speakers with equalizer controls, and easily set up multiple compatible devices for stereo sound or multi-room music.

The “improved” sound that Amazon talks about comes from internal premium speakers powered by Dolby to allow it to pump out 360-degree audio with crisp vocals and dynamic bass response. It is also possible to tweak and adjust the equalizer settings on an Echo-by-Echo basis to adjust the sound output to suit your own particular tastes. The Echo hardware can also be paired together via the Alexa app to create grouped audio that can sound incredible throughout a property.

In addition to actually being a speaker, this Amazon Echo is a smarthome powerhouse that lets you use voice commands to control compatible smarthome hardware in your property. You can turn off lights, turn on plugs and outlets, and turn TV sets on and off, as well other lots of other things. If you have more than one of these, you can also “drop-in” to them from other rooms so you can listen to what kids are doing or announce that dinner is ready to the whole family.

You may want to take the first step into voice controlled smart speakers. Or, you may actually already have other Echo hardware in your home, including an Amazon Echo. Whatever your situation, this is an opportunity to save 40% on this hardware, which is something that should definitely be capitalized on. Pick it up right now from the direct link below to take advantage.
