This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Price going gradually up, check my other deal from Amazon Germany, still at under £85 there.

MAINS POWERED. Good price for a very good brand. Over 700 hot when posted last refurbished for £99.99, this is new and cheaper. 2 year warranty from Harman Kardon. Only 4 in stock at time of posting.

I think the description is wrong. This seems to be the mains powered version, the battery operated was posted in a separate desl.
Decided to post 2 separate deals, as on both versions there are not many in stock and do not want the deal to expire when the other model is still in stock.
The portable one is posted here:

  • Allure Speaker
  • Power Supply
  • Quick-start guide
  • Safety & Warranty Sheet

60W, Bluetooth, 360 degree sound powered by the Amazon Alexa services.

Is there an unPOWERED version
Might be an error as listing states battery operated but heat added

I think there is an error, picture shows this is the powered one. I've posted a deal for the battery operated one too. Both sold by Amazon, 3 battery operated available, 4 mains powered available, so clearly one of them has the wrong description. I'm assuming this is the one with the wrong description.

I'm not accepting the challenge . Only 4 in stock, also posted during the night...however better deal than the refurbished one. Will be OOS soon, don't think will reach 200 but hope will help some.

There is another one with reviews in English, a bit better. Both reviews are related to Alexa integration rather than the quality of the speaker.

I posted the battery one too, but it seems they put the price up now to £113.
£97.94 now. Did I need one with spare echos still in their boxes? No.
Ordered Thanks OP. Ready for the Summer Sunsets going down the Welsh Hills and a glass of Rioja.
Hopefully I get the portable one

Can someone explain what it means to be alexa enabled, does this work just like a Dot but with a bigger speaker?

It has Alexa built-in. So you don't need a dot or anything like that, you just say "alexa" and a ring on the top of the speaker lights up and away you go.

Think of it like an Echo not made by Amazon.

That said, don't get this one it's really not great. I had one briefly and while sound was good, I had issues with the volume changing itself to loud randomly (the max volume was ear destroying) and Alexa randomly waking up when nothing even close to the wake-word had been uttered. I reckon the poor reviews probably reflect other people having similar problems.
Up in price now by £3, so changed description and price.

It is a speaker with Alexa built in. However, if your main reason considering this is for Alexa, I will say better go with the Amazon originals. It seems the 3rd party speakers work with Alexa, but do not have all the features, such as drop in or phone calls. Not talking specifically about this one, generally the 3rd party have this issues.
If you're interested more in sound, normally this should be better than Alexa speakers, this is one of the best affordable brands in sound. This is a combination of both worlds, you can use it for music and you have Alexa too.

Yep, it is difficult to conclude which one of the 2 is the portable one, as it seems one of the descriptions is wrong. I believe this is the main powered one, but I may be wrong. I can't believe that hours after I posted these, the portable one went in price from £94 to £113 and now to £126.40...I guess if you really want the portable one and you get the other one, you can argue with them the title states portable battery powered, maybe this will replace it. It would have been a good idea to take a picture of the portable one deal I posted before, to show the price was pretty much the same, sadly you can't do this now, as the price is up.

I was really tempted too, but same like you, still have too many not used yet. Got 3 Alexas in the house, one Dot sealed in the cupboard, and even worse, 3 sealed Lenovo smart displays and still waiting for my Google Hub Max from Vodafone...my wife will kill me if I get this. But I was really tempted of the portable one.

Ha, You noticed the German text on my pic!

I've noticed it now. I remembered Mr Switch posted a HK deal from Amazon Germany and since the portable one got up in stock, decided to do a search on Amazon Germany to see if it is available. That's how I came across this, but good point, I could have got it from your pictures. I'm only 5, I can't read, I only like pictures
Why would anyone want this when it doesn't look like genetalia?
I received one of both. First impressions bearing in mind I'm in my 50s and my hearing has never been much good from driving combines without ear protection as a boy. The powered is fantastic for sound quality and volume, not earth shattering like my pair of Bose Reds and a Denon amp but definitely fills a room. The portable is equally clear over all the tones I can hear just not as loud. It is louder than my UE Boom 2 on the base but not on the higher frequencies. The echo 2 sits somewhere in the middle of the two. Size wise both of the HKs are quite large and I don't think I would take the portable on a camping trip as the UE Boom is way more robust. I'm going to keep both as the portable will be good to use at home watching the sun set over the Malvern Hills and the powered is more than I need in the house.
I'm going to flog my Hifi setup while it's still worth something

Thanks. Really helpful, you've got quite a collection there :), almost the same like me. I am sorry for 'pushing' you into spending more money on these but I think these were really good deals. I can't believe people do not vote on my other Harman Kardon deal from Amazon Germany for £85, these have never reached that low price. They voted hot on the refurbished one for £99 but they do not vote on a brnad new one for £85...

I do blame you for my recent spending. I have always autovoted Sonos, Apple, Joseph Joseph etc deals cold. This was my virgin adventure into premium products. Would I pay £250 for this? No. Are my two young teen boys impressed? Yes. They are expensive for a speaker but they look and sound cool.
Also the HK is twice the weight of a UE boom 2 and maybe twice the size and not waterproof

Can someone compare powered one to sonos one speaker.

As far as I know, this one is not multi room and cannot be paired with another one. Sound quality should be very good considering the brand.
If you were interested, you missed a good deal here for £84, this was the lowest price ever. Sadly, people voted on this deal and the better one never came obvious for others to vote.
