What's difference between this and the new Echo Dot?




The Dot is the Echo without the speaker. It still has a speaker, but it's tiny, and more akin to the one in your smartphone. Loud enough for alarms and speech, but not really suitable for playing music etc.

If you just want something to control your IoT devices, then get the Dot.
If you just want to ask questions then get the Dot.
If you want to listen to music then either get the Dot and connect it to speakers, or get the Echo.

Personally, I have swapped my Dot for an Echo, as I wanted the minimalism of an all in one design for the kitchen, rather than 2 devices (Dot+Speaker).

I always buy Amazon refurbished if the deal is good as they are usually stock which has been returned unused. I've never experienced receiving anything other than unused items.

why cold?

why cold?


Haters gonna hate......

heat from me, tempted

I paid £99 at launch, think it was just about worth it. This is about as cheap as it's been since, albeit refurb

Heat from me, seems a very good price - refurbs from Amazon generally mean like new but maybe not in original packaging, only once had an issue and Amazon refunded me some money.

thanks op, nice saving......ordered

heat, brilliant price. Not sure why its not got more hot votes yet!

great deal - looking for a similar deal for a refurbished dot...

The search on the new site is pants. I searched for echo, and this never came up. Only found it as it got flagged up when I was going to post the deal myself.

I miss the old site and really miss the old classifieds

Heat added. Was thinking of getting one but have swayed towards the Google home instead.

I bought one.

Now I just need to convince myself that'll be useful

If all else fails, it's a (hopefully) good bluetooth speaker.

If I want to blow a hundred quid on complete tat I know where to come. Heat.

The echo has a bigger speaker and is much larger. Personally, the DOT does all I need as I route it to a Bose speaker, but it does have a little speaker of its own. At £45 this week, I would get the DOT

Unless you need a better quality speaker, go with the DOT at 44.95 for Prime. Much better response to voice I find and tiny by comparison

Can anyone tell me if i can connect this to my plex server ?
Many Thanks

Thanks. Dot it will be. I will wait for the Prime day though as I would expect a good deal on a Amazon product.

Any idea when stereo will be coming to these echoes? I want to be able to pair two up!

can an echo be linked to amazon fire tv for better sound?

Do you know if the dot plays everything via bluetooth? or only when you ask for music?

For example I wouldn't want it connecting to my AV receiver each time I ask it to turn my lights on or ask it a question.

The Dot will output it's audio to whatever it's connected or paired to.

You could use the command 'Alexa disconnect', make your commands, then 'Alexa connect' to reconnect. Bit of a ball ache tho.

I'm assuming we're talking about a bluetooth capable receiver, right?

Can I connect dot to my soundbar via Bluetooth?

You could connect Dot to your harris.

As long as it's Bluetooth compatible you're good to go.

I suspect the better response to voice you're getting from the DOT is due to its lower volume output. The Echo can't easily hear what you're saying if you're playing music at higher volumes. It can't be helped I guess, but if you want to listen to music at a good volume, the echo is the one to get.

Yes of course it is a Denon avr-x2300w

I was hoping it would be smart enough to not be connected all of the time and only connect when music is played.

Thanks for the answer

On the Gadget Show last week, the Amazon Echo was rated as much better sound quality than the Google Home.

Plex is listed as a skill (the amazon echo name for an app). It says you can control a plex server by voice using this. Hope this link works: alexa.amazon.co.uk/spa…tml

I use mine mainly as a bluetooth speaker and voice controlled internet radio. Also for checking traffic and weather before leaving the house.

What you need is the new Apple HomePod. Much more expensive though. I believe these adapt to the room and work in groups.

Now you're taking. Oh! no Alexa is!

​thanks. as in can I use voice commands to open the app and get it to play a specific track or playlist?

I have the Echo Dot, it's great for skills, home automation and radio. It is absolutely dire and completely and utterly hopeless for asking questions, it's not just poor but extremely hopelessly rotten to the core for this task. I plan on enabling developer options on mine and adding "Ask Google" skill, otherwise you need to supplement this with Google Home.
