Going to treat myself tomorrow for my birthday. All I'll use it for really is music. Which one do you suggest?

Depends on what you use - the 3rd Gen Dot has decent sound quality compared to the 2nd Gen, and is better than the Home Mini. I've not seen a Nest Mini to compare. It really comes down to which services you use most - Google of Amazon?
If you want to use Audible audio books, it'd have to be an Echo.

Just music really
I've had a Google mini and an Echo dot, and thought the sound quality much better on the Google. If all you want is music I would go Google, but for what it's worth I much prefer the Echo.
If it is mainly for music then you might be better off looking for a device with a better speaker. the Echo Dot isn't really designed to be a music player. A decent Bluetooth speaker connected to your phone could be a better option.
echo dot wins hands down for speaker sound quality over the mini
I got rid of my Echo stuff as if was too hit and miss when using voice commands . Have now got Google and it is much more responsive when it comes to controlling smart home devices. Both Echo and Google are ok for music but not really top notch ,then again you wouldn't expect that from such small speakers.

Which mini though? The old version wasn't great - the Nest Mini supposedly has better sound quality.
