Amazon has updated its premium Echo Studio smart speaker with several new features as well as a new color option. And in this article, we will go over the specifications, features, expected price, and availability of the Amazon Echo Studio in Nepal.

Amazon Echo Studio Overview:

To note, the Amazon Echo Studio isn’t a new launch by itself; it made its debut all the way back in September 2019. Anyway, the company says the Echo Studio is its best-sounding speaker yet, and it is now getting even better with a frequency range extension and support for Amazon’s new spatial audio processing technology. These upgrades are in addition to Echo Studio’s existing support for both Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio.

Design

The Amazon Echo Studio is a big cylindrical speaker measuring 206mm tall and 175mm wide with a weight of 3.5 kg. While it is not as big as subwoofers, the downward-firing woofer and bass aperture make it look like one. Below the rear bass port, you will find a power-in, a 3.5mm combination aux/optical port, and a USB-C port.

Amazon Echo Studio - Design, Build

The fabric-wrapped design of the Echo Studio gives it a premium appearance. On the top, a plastic ring holds the microphones and buttons for volume control, mic mute, and Alexa. Because of the distinct Alexa light ring found in Echo devices, the inner part of the plastic ring glows. Amazon has now added a new white color option called “Glacier White” to the standard Charcoal colorway.

Audio

The audio on the Amazon Echo Studio is handled by 5 speakers arranged directionally to offer positional audio. It has a 133mm downward-firing woofer with two bass ports, three 51mm midrange speakers, and a 20mm tweeter for the highs. The total output peaks at 330W and it has a 240-bit DAC with 100KHz bandwidth.

Amazon Echo Studio - Playback

Users can stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, and more. It supports lossless audio but an Amazon Music HD subscription is necessary for the best 3D spatial audio experience. According to Amazon, its new spatial audio technology closely mimics the stereo performance of a hi-fi stereo system. It is designed to deliver greater width and clarity compared to a typical stereo speaker setup. Likewise, the Echo Studio now has a richer frequency range to offer better playback in terms of clarity of the mid frequencies and deeper bass.

Rest of the specs

Since it’s an Amazon Echo product, it has Alexa support for voice control. Adding to the experience is the built-in Smart Home Hub that lets you control Zigbee-compatible devices. The Echo Studio can also adapt to the room’s acoustics to fine-tune the output for optimal sound.
