BUDGET PICK: AMAZON ECHO SPOT
For road warriors who miss their Alexa while on the road, Muse Auto is the solution. This easy-to-install device connects to a car’s stereo system via Bluetooth, USB or an auxiliary cable. You can talk to it just as you would talk to Alexa at home and use it to control Alexa-enabled devices from wherever you are.
BUDGET PICK: ROAV VIVA FROM ANKER
Also worth a look is the Roav Viva from Anker, which connects to an Alexa account and doubles as a charger.
MACH PICK: POLK COMMAND 2.1-CHANNEL SOUNDBAR SYSTEM WITH AMAZON ALEXA VOICE CONTROL
Using a remote to control a TV is so last year. The Polk Command 2.1-Channel Soundbar System is the first Alexa-enabled sound bar, and it also has built-in Dolby and DTS surround sound. It even includes a wireless subwoofer for room-filling bass and has built-in support for Amazon Music, Pandora, TuneIn, iHeartRadio and more. This is a perfect gift for someone who is renting and doesn’t want to mount speakers on the wall.
