The setup is quick. Just plug it in and download the companion app. Alexa comes ready out of the box, just entered my Amazon details and done. I love the look of the speaker, sleek and simple. I am surprised it can pick up my commands even from a far distance. The sound, as expected, is extraordinary, very crisp and clear. Except for YouTube where I noticed some intermittent lag or stuttering (mostly from livestreams), it plays any other sources flawlessly like Pandora, Spotify, Tune-In Radio etc.
In short, it's a potent speaker with crisp sound and built-in Alexa and smartly connects to many services in an instant.
