For some reason Amazon no longer sells black Echo Inputs in the UK, only white ones so this may prove useful to anyone who needs a black one like me! The Echo Input has no built-in speaker and consumes less power than other Echos. You plug it into another speaker via 3.5mm cable or Bluetooth and the sound quality is better than the line-outs from other Echo speakers apparently. Price is 16.99 Euros plus postage which equates to just £18.37 delivered in the UK (at today’s 1.16 exchange rate). Stock arrives 1st November with delivery about a week later. They are in high demand in the UK in black and command a hefty premium on eBay.

Most probably ! But it’s only a micro usb cable surly ??
good point !
Yes this works from a Micro USB cable and has low power requirements so should work from most USB ports. It will come with an EU plug but I find these quite useful when on holiday!

A bit odd Amazon UK no longer has the black version as @thedraper stated.

Both colours are $19.99 on Amazon.com so this deal seems to be a good price.

Out of interest what makes it better than the lineout connections? Are those of poor quality in the smart speakers or just that this is a dedicated device with better components?

Some reviews I read a while ago seemed to think these echo input devices have limited Alexa capacity and the smart speakers can do more. Anyone able to comment?

Could Amazon be launching a redesign of the echo input?
I don’t think they are replacing the Input any time soon - Amazon have announced their new speakers and nothing there... only thing I can find missing from the Input functions is ‘Drop In’. In terms of sound quality I don’t know why it is better but I read from Amazon I think that it was - not very helpful I know! Nice recent review here: techradar.com/uk/…put
Would this work with Yamaha hs7s

Will work on anything with a 3.5mm audio input or stereo RCA inputs with a 3.5mm to red/white lead...
Would these be able to cut in to a soundbar when it is already connected to something over hdmi?
Trying to think of a way it could be used without a dedicated always on speaker...?
I use mine with a soundbar which switches to the active input automatically (or manually) but you would have to check for your specific model.
A lot of French speaking ppl in here
