of possible interest: Sonos "versus" Amazon Echo

An engineer's perspective, via teardown, of the philosophy of two companies from the perspective of their smart speakers. Kind of interesting, I'd say.

YMMV, of course.


PS I saw this on a local listserv, posted by an audiophile-engineer guru type who lives on the MA "south shore" (barely) -- just south of Boston.

    Hmm, wonder what these fellers would think about Alexa in a soundbar??

    "A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a t-u-r-d by the clean end."

    Yeah, I can't believe the Apple HomePod speaker was just on the cover of this month's Stereophile FFS. Really?!?

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    My speakers are resolutely stupid -- but I do suspect the assembly quality and sophistication of the drivers (at least) rather trumps ;) either of (any of) the aforementioned smartspeakers.
