Fed up with crummy sound from your Amazon Echo Dot, then try this out for just £12:95

Simply connect to the White/Red connectors on the back of you Amp and stream via Bluetooth through you existing Speakers

Absolutely Brilliant

I did this through my 30 year old Sony Amp so need need to find space for any further Bluetooth speakers or soundbars (which i have no room for)

With exception to the album "Love and Hate" by Michael Kiwanuka, this is the best purchase Iv'e made this year, and that includes both versions of Alexa.

PS: It went though my CD connection as I'll no longer need cd's

Cheers

Was in the process of correcting that as you typed

To be honest sound quality is good considering size of Echo dot.

The sound on Echo Dot is poor opposed to the full size Alexa speaker, but it's now amazing after pairing it with my 30 year old Sony Amp and Pioneer speakers.

For £12:95, you can't got wrong if you have an Amp with Red/White (CD) inputs on the back.

I might be missing something here but why not connect the dot directly to the amp?

Yeah that's one of the reasons I bought it! Paired with my B&W MM1s and it's a really good Bluetooth receiver! I also pair it with a few Bluetooth speakers and use the Spotify cast or voice command options. I suppose you'd both this if want to keep the dot as a solo device as otherwise you have to have the speakers on 24/7 to get responses. This is better if using for an alarm clock etc. I actually bought Dot because it is a Bluetooth receiver and sender!

Which the full size Alexa is not (so I found out)

Or plug in a cable for about a quid?

Original Poster

Maybe my echo dot is the other side of the room and I don't want cables all over the place.

Anyway, each to their own I suppose.

I used to have one like this, but found it unreliable before it died, I wouldn't get something designed to be portable for a permanent setup with an amp... also 4/5 stars, I'd sooner spend not much more for something with better reviews I.e. amazon.co.uk/gp/…VQ/

these aren't very reliable. had a few and they last a couple of months at best. better off with a Chromecast audio which can regularly be had for £15. Although back up to full price at the moment.

Definitely, the one on the link is much better

why would you not just use an audio connector wire?

Or what I said. You have to have speakers on 24/7 when wired.

They'd still have to be on if this was plugged in.

Only if you want to use them. What I'm saying is that I have to turn mine on all the time to hear answers from the Echo Dot. If you use Bluetooth you can just say disconnect Bluetooth speaker and will get answers from the Echo Dot itself for news, questions etc. If you use it with a 3.5mm jack you either have to disconnect it or have speakers on. It's actually the advantage of your setup over 3.5mm jack setup. Those making sarcastic comments might want to inform themselves better! I'd rather not leave an amp and speakers on all the time. I mainly use my Dot for music as it's in my study. It's one of the reasons I've not bought one for bedroom as no Bluetooth speakers in there and wouldn't use Dot as one!

As obviously in bedroom you'd want it to set alarms and reply and I don't have a speaker on my bedside or one that would stay on 24/7

But you telling it to disconnect from Bluetooth won't turn off the Bluetooth device; it will still be on.

Original Poster

All I do is turn the Amp off and press the button on the receiver for 2 seconds and all is good!

Original Poster

Tried the cable route and found out it isolates the Echo Dot speaker so reverted back to the Bluetooth set up.

I'm happy with the purchase cos now I don't have to leave my amp on 24/7 or keep unplugging cables.

Happy Christmas everyone.

If you can make do with a 3.5mm input, you can get bluetooth receivers on fleabay for under £2.....

I bought 2 of the cheap ones and the sound quality is pretty bad and they are not very reilable (sometimes the audio stutters etc.). Not sure if thwere are really cheapo ones which are good quality :-(

Fair point, just highlighting that you don't need to spend £13 on one

and far superior sound quality than linking via bluetooth. I use a cable to connect to my amp and a small bluetooth speaker for when the amp is off.

Unfortunately, I don't want any cables going between my Dot and My Amp and Speakers which are 12 feet apart.

This is purely so I get decent sound out of a 120 watt Amp and my Pioneer Speaker set up which is far better than a bluetooth speaker, even with a cable.

Cheers.
