It’s easy to overlook Amazon's Echo Spot. 
It’s not overtly a living room smart speaker, like its bigger Echo brothers, and it doesn’t have

That strategic purchase of the movie studio led to the creation of its Hollywood Labs R&D operation, and deep ties with creatives, in particular colourists, who have helped fine-tune its displays on a mission to replicate the images seen in professional mastering suites.

For the ultimate home cinema install, an in-ceiling speaker is appealing. And if you thought such models were all about convenience and looking pretty rather than performance, you should hunt down Focal's 300 ICW 8 and have a listen...

It might come as a surprise that REL has never created a subwoofer purely for movies. Music or ‘music and movies’, yes, but not LFE alone. The £500 HT/1003 is REL’s first foray into pure-bred home cinema heroics.
