Got tired of my Echo Dots laying around and bought these wall mounts. Works great as described on 1st and 2nd generation Echo Dots. Comes 2 for the price of $14.00.

I have the Amazon Fire Cube with Alexa hooked into my A/V gear. Works great. Can tell it to turn on/off TV and the audio receiver kicks on/off too. Nice to have voice controls for anything watched on the Fire TV and it still controls volume when I am watching DirecTV.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Here's a pretty specialized product, but if you find yourself listening to music on an Amazon Echo device and wishing it sounded better, you might be interested.  You hook this up to your stereo, control it with your Echo device, and it sounds better then if you had used bluetooth or a 3.5mm cord.  $140 isn't cheap, but it made a noticeable improvement in sound for me.

This is even more, but if it has awesome sound like close to what the bose system has, then I am fine with it. I used to be into the hi-fi system and speakers wired throughout the house, these days, bluetooth and no wires, is the way togo. :)  

 

Nice thing is, if I try this for a few days, and dont like it, right back it can go.

I've had Sonos for a few years now...shame my speakers can't bluetooth but each new upgrade usually includes new abilities and the speakers can be controlled by Alexa.

I have an echo and I got the garmin battery pack, it goes under the echo and tilts, but its allow me to disconnect from the plug and move it with me, if I am working somewhere, where I dont have an alexa yet. I like that it also works with my ring.

Yeah I have Sonos and love it. All the music apps connect to it so I don’t miss the Bluetooth.

I have 3 of these around the house already (have used them with a web camera like a baby monitor since the little one was born) but I bought my 12 year old one for Xmas to use as an alarm clock too, cause it was about the same price as getting her a decent one of those.
