Comparing the HomePod’s Sound Quality to Its Competition

By Josh Centers
http://tidbits.com/article/17764

It will be a while before we see in-depth analyses of the HomePod’s audio capabilities, but iMore’s Serenity Caldwell was impressed by its sound quality in her first impressions of Apple’s new smart speaker. She compared it to the Amazon Echo, Google Home Max, and the Sonos One, and “came away from that test both impressed and shocked by the engineering Apple has put into making this tiny 7-inch speaker a musical powerhouse in your living room.” On the downside, she notes that the HomePod currently lacks stereo pairing, multi-room audio, multi-user support, and native support for services other than Apple Music.

<base href="x-msg://35/">Well now:  the best way to get a new product out is to put it up for sale; then the best way to improve it is to listen to customer feedback rather than developer creativity alone. And the starting point seems to be at a good high level...
