Amazon’s Echo is back on sale for a record low of $60

If you missed a chance to buy an Echo smart speaker on Prime Day last week, you have another chance to do so today. Amazon’s full-size Echo has dropped back to a record $60 price point, down 40 percent from its normal price. The Echo Show 5 is also currently on sale for $40, which is just $5 more than Prime Day. The Echo Dot, on the other hand, is currently 20 percent cheaper and on sale for $40.

You might just think of Amazon’s Echo as a way to bring Alexa into your home, but it’s also a pretty capable speaker. We gave it a score of 89 when it came out and it remains one of our favorite smart speakers. We like its spherical design and its bottom ring of light that changes color depending on its function. There is a 3-inch woofer and two 0.8-inch tweeters in the Echo that work together to make the speaker quite loud and put out sound with solid bass and punchy mids. It fills a room with sound better than Google’s Nest Audio or Apple’s HomePod mini, which will be important for those looking to use it as their primary living room speaker.

In addition to asking Alexa to play music from various sources such as Spotify or Apple Music, the Echo can also double as a Bluetooth speaker if desired. It also has a 3.5mm audio jack that has both input and output. Additionally, if you buy two of the speakers, you can pair them to play the audio in stereo mode as well.

The Echo can also act as your main smart home hub thanks to its built-in Zigbee capabilities. Rather than buying a separate hub or bridge to connect things like smart lights, switches and more, the Echo can act as a focal point in your home. And if you’re getting mostly IoT devices that work with Alexa, you can control them with voice commands too.

Overall, the Echo is one of the best smart speakers you can get for the $100 mark, so it’s an even better buy when you can get it for less. If you prefer a device that has a display that shows things like weather forecasts and even security camera feeds, the Echo Show 5 is a solid option. It’s the smallest of Amazon’s smart displays, but that means it works well as a smart alarm clock of sorts. We also like its surprisingly solid audio quality and tap-to-snooze feature. The Echo Dot is the smart speaker to get if you’re on a tight budget or want something that lets you use Alexa voice commands without taking up too much space.
