AUDIOPHILE ALEXA - AMAZON ECHO LINK AND LINK AMP

Amazon has released its new Echo Link and Echo Link Amp in the UK, built and designed for music lovers who want to use Alexa to stream high-fidelity music through their existing audio equipment.  

Echo Link connects to an existing Hi-Fi system or powered speakers with outputs including analogue, optical, coax, 3.5mm amplified headphone, and subwoofer line-outs for maximum output flexibility.

There's also analogue, optical, and coax line-ins to connect and play music directly from another audio component such as a turntable or CD player. It features a volume control, Ethernet and WiFi connectivity, and can also be added to a Multi-Room Music Group for whole-home audio streaming through Alexa.

Echo Link Amp has all the same features as Echo Link but includes an inbuilt 60 watts per channel stereo amplifier. Left and right speaker binding posts support wiring directly to existing loudspeakers.

Both Echo Link and Echo Link Amp can be controlled through the Alexa app or another mic-enabled Echo device in your account. Simply say, “Alexa, play music in the living room,” to listen to streaming audio on your existing stereo system.

Available now, Echo Link sells for £190 and Echo Link Amp sells for £290.
