Amazon Echo ... real wood?

Recommended Posts

Amazon has Prime Days coming so thought I'd pick up some Echo's to try out "Alexa."  They are all on sale for about $50 ($22 for the "Dots") but the sound supposedly is much better on the taller Echo's. Question ... they have a "walnut" version ... $20 more.  If it is REAL walnut wood, I'll gladly pay it ... but not willing to pay $20 extra for plastic :(  Anyone knows?  Been searching for an answer but no luck so far :(

You think real wood would only be $20.00 more?

WHY do you want to invite that SPY DEVICE into your home? I do not even have a Cell Phone, I so much do NOT want to be surveilled!

Well; "no longer available" from Amazon Direct ... 3rd party sellers only.  OK; that makes the decision "easier."

Nope, I'm clueless!  Just posted what she had on fb.  IF there's ever a glitch to be had she's on it!  Hmmmm, maybe I should have her start keeping an eye on the Klipsch site...    :)

Alexa and Amazon are cool. Turn those on and leave them on and share your household with Amazon techs and hackers 24/7. Way cool. Beyond way cool.
