Amazon’s Prime Deal of the Day is currently the Certified Refurbished 1st-Gen Amazon Echo for $64.99. This deal is only available to Prime members and will end tonight at midnight or while supplies last. This is the new lowest price that I have ever seen for the 1st generation Amazon Echo. Apart from not having an auxiliary audio out jack, the 1st-gen Echo has all the same functionality as the newer 2nd-gen Echo. The two perform and sound very similar. I personally find the 1st-gen Echo to have a crisper sound, probably due to its larger tweeter, which makes it my preferred device for podcasts and news briefs, while the 2nd-gen has a slightly richer sound, which makes it better for music. Overall, you really wouldn’t notice a difference between the two unless you heard them side-by-side.
