Amazon Echo Input is on sale for $19.99 — Lowest Price Ever

Get this Echo Input Deal

Amazon has the Echo Input on sale for $19.99. This sale matches the lowest price that the Echo Input has ever been. The Echo Input is essentially an Echo Dot without a built-in speaker. If you plan to always have your Alexa device connected to external speakers, the Echo Input is worth considering over an Echo Dot because it is much, cheaper, smaller, and discrete. I personally have one connected to my TV soundbar as an “Alexa bridge” to allow the soundbar to be part of my whole-home audio group. The small form factor lets me tuck it out of sight. You can control the Echo Input by voice, thanks to its microphones, but I actually keep mine muted and just use other Alexa devices in my home to control the soundbar audio by saying “Alexa, …. on the Soundbar.” An Echo Dot is certainly more versatile because it can be repurposed in the future and used on its own, but if you value minimalism and just need to add Alexa to a speaker, then the Echo Input is the better option for many people. Also on sale right now is the full-sized Amazon Echo for $74.99.

    Do you have trouble sending commands over the tv sound?

  2. Ne says:

    It’s inexcusable that this doesn’t come with optical output for a dedicated audio device.

      Optical out would be a great feature. I use my Chromecast Audio’s optical out and love it.

    What’s the difference between this and Amazon Echo Auto?

    • AFTVnews says:

      Mostly just that the Echo Auto is tailor-made for a car environment. Their both essentially Echo Dots without built-in speakers, but the Echo Auto has more mics so it can hear you better over road noise and the car A/C. Echo Auto’s software is also made to pass data through the Alexa app, instead of relying on you to create a WiFi hotspot each time, which the Echo Input would need to be used in the car.
