Purchase on Amazon –
The newest generation of the Echo Dot from Amazon truly is a upgrade of loud proportions. Not only has the volume increased, so too has the quality of the audio as well as microphone input. Being an upgrade that still has the same net cost as the previous generation, this is an upgrade that was well placed. However, this does not mean go and replace your 2nd gen, it is more about the purpose you use your Echo speakers for currently. Check the new version out at the link above!
