I believe you need a category for the Amazon Echo. Everyone in my family has one but my Mother. I Bought one on Black Friday for $149 for her for Christmas. She lives alone and I really feel these are good for people to talk and interact with for both fun and facts. ...and friendship.
I don't believe I can vote as this just being a streamer or bluetooth speaker.

Perhaps this is too specialized, but perhaps a category for music management software might make sense given the strong reviews for a product like Roon?

I bought a new bed. I'm still trying to figure out if there's anything that I would want in AV right now :(

I am happy to say that I totally skipped out on "Black Friday"! Most of the "deals" weren't really deals anyway, and I was just as happy to stay home and avoid the chaos. Screw Black Friday. The sooner it dies, the better humanity will be!

I got:
* Blu-Ray disks, BBC doc type.
* A vacuum, to help keep my dedicated HT room clean so my equipment will last as long as possible...the old one got tired.
* I worked on the HT room, covered some audio diffusion with speaker cloth.
