Echo Input

Well, this one past me by, and I can't see any threads on it (apologies if I've missed it, mods please merge if I have).

It's a speaker-less Echo Speaker - it has the microphone and ability to use alexa to control all the stuff which the other alexa Amazon Echo speakers do, but you have to attack it via 3.5mm output or Bluetooth to your stereo system or Bluetooth speaker.

What a great idea! And what a good price (£34.99, but only £19.99 at the moment).


I've looked at echos before, and I think (a) they don't look like they'll be very good sound quality, and (b) a bit steep, given the above. Which makes this 'just what I was looking for'.

Immediately, because I'm a bit of a worrier, I'm thinking of a problem. I'm presuming the echos' microphones know how to ignore anything coming from their own speaker, partly because they know what they're outputting, but also because they know the exact sonic characteristics of their own speaker. The latter won't be the case with this.

I have 7 echo dots and most of them are plugged in to speakers either via the headphone socket or via Bluetooth. They are all very good at picking up my voice when music is playing quite loud so I presume it filters its own output.
