    Amazon Echo input

    I dug out the echo input i had bought for a bedroom system and am using it with my vintage main system. I wonder how good the dac and analog out is. Next step up would be an Echo Link but it's also getting old. Wish there was a good Amazon Music streamer. Maybe the WIIM mini is worth trying

    Focal Aria 906 or Elac Debut Reference?

    Based on the reviews here, these two are my top picks to replace my Boston Acoustics A26. Any thoughts? I have a Rotel RA12 integrated, Rotel CD14, Denon DP2500. The Focals are $300 more and look fantastic.
