If you plan on using your smart speaker to stream music as well, a high-end Echo is definitely the way to go. If you only want access to Alexa though, we definitely recommend getting the Eufy Genie Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa by Anker instead. It’s basically an Echo Dot but it costs $19.99 instead of $50, so you can put Alexa in every room of your house and save tons of money doing it.
Here are the highlights from the product page:
