May be looking to gracefully retire the SB Boom in the kitchen as the VU display is on its last legs and Ali finds searching for music a bit clunky beyond using the presets. It still sounds great, but consumerism must win.
Our kids have Alexas and they seem pretty reliable on the voice control and I was thinking about the Echo Studio which at sub £200 looks ideal for a kitchen.
Keen to get your o-pinions on the others, particularly Sonos. Is it worth the hifi tax? Does it have Alexa built in?
Also Google; Apple et al.
Main requirements are reasonably basic in order of importance:
- Internet radio, which I assume they all do
- Qobuz integration preferred, but will accept Spotify on pain of death.
- Play a local FLAC library (transcoded is fine)
