Inexpensive TTS Speaker? (2021)

Is the US, what is the most inexpensive speaker with TTS that directly works with ST V3 hub?

After reading through several threads, I’m a bit confused on speaker models with TTS capabilities.

Also, does it work to have a speaker give commands to Alexa?

Ikea symfonisk at $100


Im not seeing it in the device list in the app. Does it require a custom dth?

It uses the Sonos integration. As the device itself is a Sonos speaker, but IKEA branded.

Usually, yes, but you have to try it: there are some which are not perceived as a human voice by Alexa even though they sound fine to us. :thinking:


so, alexa and google and not ‘built-in’ to the speaker?
