Whereas Amazon and Google tend to focus on smart features, the folks at Onkyo have prioritized audio quality. This smart speaker contains an 80mm diaphragm custom woofer with a huge magnet and a 20mm soft-drone tweeter with a carefully balanced dome. In combination, these drivers produce a rich sound that is powerful enough to fill any room.

You can control the speaker with your voice thanks to Google Assistant. The Onkyo also has 5GHz Wi-Fi for smooth streaming and Bluetooth for local connections. You can even use this speaker as a Chromecast device.

This smart speaker also looks the part. The outer case is made from non-resonant wood, with a sleek finish. You can choose from two colors: black and white. The overall design is understated, with the built-in controls and Onkyo logo tucked away at the back.

It’s normally $299, but you can pick up this Onkyo speaker now for $94.99.
