As planned a few weeks ago, Amazon launches the marketing of its Echo Studio, a dot speaker Alexa that is at the top of the range of audiophiles and competes with Apple's HomePod.

The Echo Studio speaker is the best at Amazon. Always smart with assistant Alexa, the speaker features three 2-inch (51mm) mdium speakers, a 1-inch (25mm) tweeter and a 5.25-inch (133mm) woofer with bass opening for maximize the output of the most serious frequencies.
On the side of supported formats, it is classic with FLAC, MP3, AAC, Opus, Vorbis, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio / MPEG-H. Echo Studio also supports Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Atmos sound.
As its direct competitor, Echo Studio has an automatic calibration function to adapt the sound to the environment when you move it. By cons, Echo Studio is sold 199.99, against 329 for the HomePod. As a result, the stro offer with a pair of Echo Studio is 399 against 658 at Apple.
Finally, be aware that Echo Studio supports many streaming services. In the first place, there is necessarily Amazon Music but also Apple Music, Deezer or Spotify. Not bad.
