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

The famous yogurt maker is back in town. Onkyo smart speaker again on sale. Very good price price, 6 years warranty, free delivery or pick up from store.
Probably the best value speaker for using both, music and Alexa features.

Control not just your music, but also all your connected home, with the Alexa voice driven Onkyo VC-PX30.

Home automation
Compatible with other smart appliances, the VC-PX30 is the hub of your home automation. Control products such as Philips Hue lighting, Nest, WeMo, ecobee and SmartThings, simply by speaking to the Onkyo.

Compatible with DTS Play-Fi
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multi-room music. Simply add other PlayFi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

Powerful Onkyo sound quality
Using twin woofers, driven by dedicated amps, the VC-PX30 spreads smooth music all around your room. For added bass, twin passive drivers help boost the low frequencies, giving a punchy sound. One listen and you’ll soon appreciate Onkyo’s 70 years of audio heritage.

Plug in another source
Featuring a 3.5mm input you can easily plug in another source. Connect an MP3 player, games console or any other source with a headphone output and you instantly have the benefit of Onkyo sound all round.

Different league, you can compare this with the original Echo/,Google speakers, Sony smart speaker, LG and so on, not with Bose or Sonos.
My understanding is these are better than the originals for music, but not as good as the originals in terms of using voice commands.
However, if you want a combination of both, I doubt it you will find anything better at this price, from an well known brand and with such long warranty.

Quite right my young keyboard gatekeeper... I am particularly fond of fruit corner style yogurt. But brand name is the key.

Not sure but I think the Google version of this Onkyo may have a built in hub.

I do not know, I just remember people saying the Google on is better as it has Google built in, while the Alexa one is only Alexa enabled...So I thought this means the Google version has a hub. I'm sure there are plenty of reviews on YouTube. Never looked into this, as my Alexa devices have no hub, so all the devices I've got do not require a hub.

I’m the same, which means I have a lot of stuff cluttering up my WiFi network. I’m looking into hubs, but, to be honest, I don’t want to pay proper money for one. That’s why this item intrigued me... Sadly, the search continues...

This had its day back in the 80s with the likes of bush and awia.
I have the Google version of this (this is Alexa) it's very muffled and bassy. I wouldn't recommend it.

Be careful at your comments, it seems one of the brands you've mentioned has different connotation, the mods deleted my comment😁. A bit of dictatorship if you ask me

Every Onkyo post needs an unknown brand comment, it's Hotukdeals law

i have one of these and it's good. i could not setup with sony xz phone, but easily setup with a cheap phone. i'm tempted to get another one at this price even though i have no need of one.
Are you lot on crack or sommit? Onkyo have been around for years, they make good hifi gear and are very well known. You guys ought to do some research before posting such nonsense

They are joking! Every time an Onkyo deal is posted, they make these comments. It is always guaranteed people bringing yogurt, Bush or Alba in discussion.
I have had two of these units from RS for over a year. They’re Alexa enabled - not quite as fast to respond as an Amazon Echo and a little more limited (e.g. no Drop In feature) but ok. Music seems to play somewhat heavy on the bass to me but I’m very happy. I wish they had Bluetooth! At this price they’re a steal - so heat given!

What are you taking about? They've been making yogurts for over 65 years. That surely must be a sign of quality

That’s a shame they don’t have Bluetooth, is there any way to play music on them without an internet connection? Looking for a replacement portable speaker for my mum, but don’t think this’ll do if it always has to have WiFi...
Ordered this on Sunday at 3pm, delivered an hour ago, all set up and sounds mint, thanks op, didn't need, but glad I got it, also well impressed with Richer Sounds speed of delivery.

They have an Aux in which works perfectly. I used an old style Echo Dot with an Aux cable to connect to the Onkyo. That gave me Amazon Echo speed with Onkyo speaker quality.
