Thinking of Getting a smart Speaker System.

Read the reviews and just about settled on the one I want, but has anyone got any hands on experience?

What are you trying to achieve?

To tell the time without having to turn my phone on, voice activated radio and music streaming.

Do you have experience?

So long as you have enough money, the world is your lobster

Do you mean, like Alexander or Sirius?

No, I'm looking at Sonos, Echo and similar.

The cost should be covered by my disability allowance.

I did some research (I tried other peoples systems). The sound is acceptable if you are not accustomed to HiFi, and is unlikely to be if you are hard of hearing.

I didn't go down that route but will need to, in the next 10 to 20 years, for my own safety (currently 73 and firing on all cylinders, but how long that will last is in the lap of the Gods)

After 40 years round jets (pretty up close and personal!) my hearing is not of the best, last time I was checked my hf was about 16k but I suspect it's now down to about 12. Hi fi it ain't! It's mainly background and pop anyway, for serious listening I've got a £300 set of Sennheiser cans.
