It seems like everything and their lightbulbs are adding Alexa capabilities these days, because so many of us have Alexa devices in our homes nowadays.
While systems like Sonos and Bose have Alexa integrated directly into their speakers, that's not always the case for smaller brands. The newest Amazon device, the Echo Input, allows you to connect any speaker, via Bluetooth or aux cable, to Alexa incredibly easily.
That means even your speakers from years ago can still be updated into 2018. The best part? You don't need another Alexa device to use it because it has microphones built-in, so you don't need a Dot or Echo hanging around if you don't want it. You can preorder one to add to your speaker systems now, or opt for one of the bundles like the Anker SoundCore XL, iHome AV2 Speaker, and more.
This little guy is the perfect gift for the audiophile in your life.
