Amazon’s Echo might not exactly be tech’s answer to Adele but it’s hardly getting kicked out of the first round of auditions on The X-Factor either. Still, KitSound reckons Alexa could do with an upgrade in the sound quality department. With a pair of 2.5in 10-watt drivers, the Voice One claims to be a more audiophile-friendly smart speaker, with a pair of mics that listen out for your commands, plus the ability to wirelessly link up to eight of them together. It’s only £129 and is now available to buy, which is £20 cheaper than the Echo, so we’ll wait to hear it with our own ears before passing judgement.
