Amazon Echo Studio $279, Echo Sub $149, Echo 3rd Gen $99 @ Amazon AU, JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks

110

Echo Studio dropped down to $279. It has been this price before but it is the cheapest it has ever been, including during Black Friday last year when it didn't get any discount.

Echo 3rd gen has also dropped to $99. It was $79 recently but if you missed that, this is as good a price as it has otherwise been.

Edit: The Echo Sub has also reduced, $149 down from regular $199. Previous lowest was $99.

Both are listed as currently unavailable until 26 June. I ordered the Studio during the previous $279 deal while it was also OOS, and it has been unavailable since then. At least Amazon don't charge until it ships.

Sadly I believe Amazon Music Ultra HD is still not available in Aus, to take fuller advantage of the Studio.

  • I wonder how a studio compares to 2 x echo 3rd gen + echo sub. I currently have this config and think it's very good, but the studio at $279 sounds like excellent value, and definitely cheaper than the config I'm running.

    • Depends on what you want. The Studio should have much better sound quality, and has its immersive sound features, but you currently have a genuine stereo setup. The echo sub also goes lower than the studio. In reviews I've read, when they put two studios in stereo a lot of the audio trickery contained within becomes redundant and you end up with regular stereo, in which case you'd likely do better with a pair of regular bookshelfs for the same price.

      I'm going to use it in my bedroom where I want some decent sound, but a normal stereo system isn't practical and in any case is overkill. The Studio can sit in a corner where it will be paired with the echo sub I've already got. I thought about getting 2x echo 3rds during the recent $79 sale as an alternative, but decided that having everything tucked in one corner of the room was neater.

      • Good summary.

        Would be good to try them back to back but would need to buy a studio to do that. At the moment I've got a plethora of these devices and definitely don't think I need any more.

        I think in hindsight I would get the studio if the sound is similar and even if the price was the same. I sort of built up the setup in my loungeroom a bit at a time; I didn't just go out and buy 2 x echo v3 and a sub.

        I think the sound is actually really good for such a small setup and the convenience of these (or a studio even more so) means that I rarely fire up the Denon receiver and play music from it (even though the sound from the amp is another level of course). The Denon does have integrated spotify but it's so much easier on the Echo. And of course you also get iHeartradio etc via voice. Don't get that on the Denon.

        • The main downside is that the number of services that can stream to the Echo is limited. I had to set up a Plex server so I could stream my locally stored music to it (why no DLNA, Amazon!!), and the Tidal skill isn't supported in Australia (which is just stupid). If I find a cheap Bluesound Node I might add that in to combine all sources.

  • Or just buy the Google Home Max for $80 less? This shoot out concluded that the sound quality was superior on the Google and that's surely the main purpose of a speaker?
