Echo Input adds Alexa to an external speaker and connects via 3.5 mm audio cable or Bluetooth.
With four microphones, Alexa hears you from across the room — even when music is playing.
Stream Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, TuneIn and more on your favourite speaker. Services may require subscriptions or other fees.
Just ask Alexa to play a song, read the news or check the weather and traffic.
Set alarms and timers, add items to your to-do list and control compatible smart home devices.
Calling and Drop In via Bluetooth is currently not supported.
Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new skills. Track your fitness, play games or fall asleep to rain sounds.
Slim, low-profile design fits almost anywhere.
Speaker required
Echo Input requires an external speaker and connects via the included 3.5 mm audio cable or Bluetooth. Sonos speakers are not currently supported. It does not pair to Wi-Fi speakers. We recommend pairing with certified Bluetooth Speakers. Search speakers

Speaker power-saving mode and volume
Speakers connected by 3.5 mm audio cable may power off if not used for an extended period of time. When possible, we recommend turning off the speaker’s power-saving mode by following the manufacturer’s instructions.

When connecting Echo Input to your speaker, first increase the volume of the speaker. Then say, “Alexa, volume 7” or “Alexa, volume up”.

    Does this mean you can have alexa plugged into your car stero?

      Don't see why not if you have a wifi hotspot that it can connect to

        I've had an Amazon Dot installed in my car for the last couple of years.

        Tasker on my phone enables my phone Hotspot when it detects my car Bluetooth, to provide the internet source for the Dot.

        Uses short 3.5mm stereo cable (with line filter to eliminate electrical noise) to connect to car Aux input.

      Amazon is releasing a car version, no idea if Australia will ever get it directly

    Can I attach this to Yamaha sound bar Yas108 (the ones popular here around $200)?

    •  

      Yes. Know that Bluetooth on the Echo Input is known to be sketchy. Earlier comments from another post suggest just hooking it up to an Echo Dot

      •  

        I think the soundbar has some ports behind apart from Bluetooth? Also hooking what with echo dot?

        •  

          The Echo Input will connect to the YAS108 via 3.5mm.
          The comment was with regards to if you chose to connect directly to Echo Input via BT to stream audio to the soundbar, it has been reported that it is not that great. The alternative to the Echo Input was to connect your soundbar via an Echo Dot instead

    When will the echo buds be available in Aussie land?

    I have both (yeah go ahead and flame me for knee deep in Amazon ecosystem):
    - I have 2 Echos + Sub for a 2.1 system. I have to say it surprises me on quality in terms of price, in fact sometimes I couldn't tell much of a difference from my Sonos Beam + 2 One's. Or maybe I'm just bad at it.
    - The Echo Input is kinda meh, I bought it to hook up my Creative iRoar by BT, no multiroom groups, no drop-in, and the Input volume is separated from the speaker volume. Unless you truly want to make your existing audio system smarter, skip this, or just pony out $10 for the Dot which can do pretty much everything the Input can + work independently.
