"Unbelievable" - The Echo Plus just got even better!!!
15 October 2018
The new Echo Plus (2nd Gen) is simply beautiful in every aspect, from the packaging that it comes in, to the design and the build quality of the unit is outstanding and it looks like an expensive piece of equipment.
The sound quality is amazing and indeed very powerful, delivering great bass and mid tones for music, it is very impressive indeed.
You can use the equaliser built into the Alexa application to configure the sound and adjust it exactly to your liking, I spent a lot of time tweaking it, not because it is complicated but the slightest change on each of the three sliders can make a massive difference and this enables you to really fine-tune the audio to really get the richest sound possible.
The Echo Plus (2nd Gen) is fast and responsive, the new microphone setup is excellent had no problems hearing me wherever I was standing and understood all of the instructions clearly even when music was playing at a high volume for me to be able to control all of my smart home equipment and it easily understood every question and provided very quick, clear and accurate responses.
It has a much nicer curved design on the top and base and is actually shorter in height from the previous version and just simply looks much nicer, not that the previous version was not pleasing on the eye but the simple cosmetic changes that have been implemented make it quite, well actually very beautiful.
This is a massive leap forward in design, sound quality and overall performance and I would highly recommend upgrading to the 2nd Gen as the difference is not just cosmetic and I can promise you that you will not be disappointed.
