How Amazon’s new Echos compare to other smart speakers

  How Amazon’s new Echos compare to other smart speakers Amazon vs. Apple vs. Google vs. SonosIf you want the best Echo speaker for music, the $199.99 Echo Studio is the one Amazon wants you to buy. It’s got five drivers — a 1-inch tweeter, three 2-inch midrange speakers, and a 5.25-inch woofer — which should be able to show off Amazon Music HD, Amazon’s new music streaming tier that offers lossless streaming. It also supports “3D audio” for the few tracks that support it, utilizing formats like Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio. New to the Echo lineup (but not Amazon’s competitors) is the Echo Studio’s ability to automatically tune its output for the room it’s in.

Silvia Galva, 32, was killed by a spear to the chest during a fight with Adam Reechard Crespo Police investigating the mysterious death have obtained a warrant for any audio recordings from two "If the truth comes out, it could help us." The Amazon devices don’t start recording until a user says a wake

Audio from two Amazon Echo devices is handed over to police as they investigate death of Florida woman impaled by a spear during fight with husband - because Investigators believe the devices may have captured audio of the fatal encounter and what may have occurred in the lead up to it.

"I ordinarily I wouldn't want these recordings -- I would jump up and down and object because I think it's an invasion of privacy," O'Toole said. "I think the truth is: My client did nothing wrong."

According to a July police report, Galva and Crespo were arguing when he tried to pull her off the bed, which had a 5-foot spear at the corners with a double-sided metal blade.

"As the defendant was pulling the victim off the bed, the victim grabbed on the wooden shaft of the spear," the police report said. "The defendant continued to pull the victim from the bed and turned away from the victim. While he was still pulling … he heard a snap. The defendant turned around and discovered shortly after that the blade had penetrated victim's chest. The defendant pulled the blade out of the victim's chest 'hoping it was not too bad.'"

Crespo then told another person in the house to call 9-1-1 and tried to apply pressure on the wound, but Galva died.

Police alleged that Crespo's actions caused her death.

"Based on the information received, the actions of the defendant caused the victim to grab the spear to keep herself on the bed. The force used by the defendant to remove the victim caused the shaft to break and in an unknown way caused the blade to pierce the victim, which caused the loss of life," the police report said.

Crespo was charged with second-degree murder. He's out on bail.

Hallandale police confirmed that Amazon had turned over the devices.

"Amazon does not disclose customer information in response to government demands unless we're required to do so to comply with a legally valid and binding order," the company said.

Amazon said audio is not streamed to the Cloud or recorded unless it detects a wake word -- "Alexa," "computer," "Amazon" -- and once a recording is deleted, it cannot be recovered.
