From BGR:
Amazon’s lineup of Echo speakers is fantastic, but why should your access to Alexa be confined only to Echo Dots and the like? Amazon has an awesome new accessory that’s about to be released called the Echo Input. Connect it to any speakers or stereo system and it adds far-field mics as well as Alexa voice controls, essentially turning any speaker into an Alexa speaker! It’s set to be released [some point today], so pre-order one now if you want to have it as soon as it’s released.

In addition to adding Alexa to your speaker, it’s also got an impressive range. It’s able to hear your commands from another room according to the product listing. It allows you to ask Alexa to play your favorite music from Apple Music, Spotify and other music providers, set alarms and reminders, check the weather for the day and so much more.
