This is Amazon Echo Sub, a sign that Amazon is starting to get serious about the sound quality of its Echo devices. At a time when Google and Apple are talking up sound quality, Amazon needed to have a product that answered this need.
But Amazon does have a different approach; its solution is not to release a single Echo Max or similar that’s an all-in-one device.
Instead, the £120/$130 Echo Sub works alongside two Echo devices (it is “optimised” for either second gen Echo or Echo Plus) in a stereo pair to form a 2.1 system and will be available on its own or with a bundle of two Echo devices if you don’t have them already. You can use it with a single Echo if that’s what you’ve got.
