Amazon's hockey puck-shaped smart plug is a cheap and easy way to add voice control to your non-Alexa speakers. Normally priced at $35, Amazon is giving it a temporary price cut.
The Echo Input connects to any speaker via its 3.5mm jack or Bluetooth. Once connected and set up via the Alexa app (Android and iOS), you can ask Alexa to play a song, read the news, or stream from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, or more.
Designwise, the Echo Input is a little larger than the Google Chromecast and is barely noticeable among your stereo setup. It features four built-in microphones with action and mute buttons to control them.
In our Echo Input review, we were impressed by the sensitivity of its microphones and its ease of use. Just keep in mind that it lacks an RCA or optical audio output.
There's no telling how long this deal will last, so grab this ultra-cheap Echo Input while you can.
