Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Surprisingly, under a metal RV port 24' x 40' with 15' ceiling, there is no problem hearing the music clearly
  • Having Alexa in the unit (works only with internet connection), it's nice to get updates, change the music selection all with voice control

Cons

  • Alexa suddenly stopped working without explanation and there's no troubleshooting available for that
