How to repair an Amazon Echo-style speaker for less than $30
Posted November 14, 2018 02:30:13Amazon’s Echo-like speaker that came with its original $129 model is now cheaper to buy with a few cheaper options, but there are still plenty of reasons why you might want to buy a new model.
According to a new report from Adorama, the new model can be had for less with some upgrades.
First, you can upgrade the speaker’s built-in microphone to a digital version, as well as the Alexa speaker, the site reports.
And if you want to get the most out of the speaker, you’ll need to upgrade the amplifier, the company says.
Amazon says the Alexa-based Echo-type speaker is “a great value.”
The company has previously said that it offers the Echo-esque speaker in the US and Canada.
Adorama says the Echo speaker can be purchased for $29.99.
For the most part, it’s a $29-to-$59 upgrade, but the retailer also offers a cheaper version with the Alexa and speaker built-into a smaller, but still powerful, $30 model.
Advertisers and tech enthusiasts alike are likely going to be keen to pick up the new Echo-based speakers.
With Amazon’s Alexa speaker launching in the U.S. on November 17, the Echo has a strong foothold in the home entertainment market.
With Alexa now officially available in more than 50 countries, we expect the Echo to continue to dominate the home theater market.
