    I think the whole speaker is amazing. It looks fresh, the only downside it has is that its limited. If they made one with Bluetooth and more capabilities it would be better. The only thing that makes this speaker better than the other ones is that it doesn't share your conversations or sells them to companies and uses your data like the google HomePod or Alexa

    Is that a Mercedes AMG POSTER??? If it is where you bought it ??

    Picked one up while Target was selling them for $200 last week. For $200 this thing is worth it based off of sound alone. I couldn’t justify dropping $300+, though. Hopeful that future updates will make the software/smartness better, but I’m happy with the $200 price tag using it for an AirPlay speaker. I should’ve bought two!

    My brain: $30 Amazon Echo Dot 100x better than HomePod vs. $400 HomePod does virtually nothing.
