Echo Studio

Three way smart-Speaker from Amazon

In line with the new HiRes streaming service "Music HD", Amazon is launching a new flagship among Alexa-suitable loudspeakers on November 7: the Echo Studio.

It is considerably larger than all previous Echo units and is equipped with five drivers: a 13 cm bass driver with bass reflex port, a 1 inch tweeter and three 2 inch mid-range drivers, one of which radiates to the left, one to the right and one to the top. Thanks to this arrangement and the integrated processor for Dolby Atmos and Sony's "360 Reality Audio", it can play music in native 3D formats that will be available on Amazon Music HD and next year on Tidal from all three major labels. Two Echo Studio copies can also be grouped into a stereo pair or combined with selected FireTV devices. The integrated DAC chip is capable of 24 bits, and the amplifier will process frequencies up to 100 kHz. An automatic adaptation to the position in the room and its acoustics is also integrated. Finally, a Zigbee hub for smart home control is also on board. The Echo Studio competes directly with Apple's Home Pod and Google's Home Max - but Amazon wouldn't be Amazon if it weren't undercutting its competitors in price: the Echo Studio costs an even 200 euros.
