Hi Richard.

If he is able to deal with things like making sure he has selected the right input source for the hifi i.e. cd player, tuner or echo for example then you are probably right.  There is no output jack on the full sized echo.  

Regards

Graham

Thanks David,
He does have a HIFI to plug the Dot into, and it was when I realised, in Crewe, that he could plug the Dot into it, but not the bigger Echo, that I thought the dot would be the better answer.

Best,
Richard

Hi,


The Echo Dot is probably not the right choice for this, the Echo itself is probably much better, unless he has something to attach it to. The Echo has a much better speaker.


Cheers

Dave
