Amazon Prime Day always brings the best pricing of the year to the company's own hardware, including its top-notch audiophile smart speaker, the Echo Studio. Normally, the Echo Studio sells for around $200 and is one of the most expensive speakers Amazon sells. We've already seen it discounted to $150, which is a steal.
These tend to sell very well, and they're likely to sell out during Prime Day on discount. If you're interested, pick up one when you can.
Prime Day deals are finally flowing, especially on Amazon's own products. If you're a fan of audio, you might consider buying yourself (or somebody else) an Echo Studio. Even if you already have an Echo or Alexa-enabled smart speaker, we encourage you to give this device a try.

Amazon Echo smart speakers have long been praised for their smart home integrations and ease of use, but they've never been considered competitors to more premium smart speakers or Bluetooth speakers from the likes of Sonos, Bose, or Marshall.
The Echo Studio, which debuted in 2019, changed that. When we reviewed the Echo Studio, we said that it was the perfect device for the audiophile in your home. The speaker is priced very competitively to something like the Sonos One but arguably does a better job filling the room with HD sound. It's also a much better smart speaker and portal to Alexa.
Maximize the HD sound with Amazon Music Unlimited or Tidal, and consider pairing together with your Amazon Fire TV for stereo sound.
If you are an Amazon Music subscriber and opt to try the Amazon Music Unlimited HD tier, then you're in for a real treat. It also sounds great with other services like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and Tidal. You can pair two Echo Studios together for stereo sound, or even add an Echo Sub to the mix to really maximize the bass. Plus, the Echo Studio can be paired with a Fire TV device for even better audio while binging your favorite TV series or movies.
If you're considering getting yourself or a loved one an Echo Studio, you may be wondering whether Prime Day is a good time to buy one or not, especially with Black Friday just around the corner.
Prime Day is the best time to buy any Amazon device
Historically, Amazon has always put its own devices front and center of all the discounts. It's usually the best time of the year to pick up any of its hardware. Usually, Amazon drops the price to the lowest its been for the year during Prime Day, which means that it's a great time to buy one.
Look for Echo Studio bundles to save more
While Amazon is discounting its devices by themselves for Prime Day, you may find even better deals by looking at the bundles that are being offered instead. For example, right now, you can score an Echo Studio speaker with Amazon Smart Plug for $225 — perfect to start your smart home setup!
The Echo Studio is about providing the best sound possible. It can do so on its own — or you can pair it with another Echo Studio and Echo Sub for a great Fire TV surround-sound experience.
Black Friday pricing isn't likely to be lower than this
With Black Friday just a few short weeks away, it's unlikely that Amazon will beat its Prime Day pricing during the holiday shopping season. Historically, Amazon has matched the pricing during Black Friday, but if product availability is as light on Black Friday as it has been for the rest of this year, it's unlikely we see Amazon attempt to beat the price if they even match it then.
Overall, we think that the time to buy an Echo Studio is right now. Be sure to check out the rest of the deals now to see what else is worth buying on Prime Day 2020!
