Amazon has just dropped the dime on a new pair of Roku wireless speakers.
Dimensions remain the same, but there is at least one stylistic change in excising v1’s unsightly top dimple. Further. the streaming pioneer no longer bundles the funky table-top remote and highly redundant TV streamer remote. Based on the slight model number increment, I’m not expecting any dramatic enhancements. And, as with Roku’s first foray in 2018, this pair can be used to provide stereo sound to one’s Roku television… or as rear channels, when mated to the Roku soundbar.
The first gen had a rather lofty MSRP of $200, but given some decent soundbars at this price point, I expect the 2020 Roku Wireless Speakers will clock in significantly less given the landscape and by dropping the accessories.
