If you want a smart speaker solely to get hands-free access to Alexa, the $18 Eufy Genie is pretty much the only speaker you should consider. On the other hand, if you want a smart speaker that will give you hands access to Alexa AND stream music with the best possible sound quality, the Sonos One is the only speaker you should consider. Sonos’ $200 smart speaker is getting an upgrade, and the second-generation model will feature Bluetooth Low Energy, an updated processor, and more memory. In other words, there are no changes that impact sound quality at all, so you should take this opportunity to stock up on the first-gen model. It’s down to $179 right now on Amazon, but only until whatever’s left is sold out. Hurry!
Or, if you don’t care about Alexa, then the Two Room Set with Sonos Play:1 + $30 Amazon Gift Card on Amazon is still the best deal in wireless home audio.
