The new NETGEAR Orbi Voice a smart speaker and Wi-Fi mesh satellite in one. And there’s nothing better than being able to listen to music and have Alexa around while extending your network coverage at the same time.
If you are looking to buy a mesh network system AND an Alexa smart speaker, then this might be the dream without having to make a separate purchase.
The Orbi Voice smart speaker definitely has that sleek design and it’s a must, because you’d want to place the speaker on top of a table somewhere near. Now, with Alexa smart speaker, manufacturers often sacrifice the quality of the sound.
But thankfully, NETGEAR does not do that. The speaker is actually a Harman Kardon’s, which is a very well known brand in the sound industry with exceptional sound quality.
The Orbi Voice itself is an AC2200 Tri-band Wi-Fi satellite with MU-MIMO capabilities. It’s both quite a powerhouse in terms of sound and network performance.
If you already have an Orbi mesh system set up at home, you can just buy the Orbi Voice (RBS40V) separately for AU$499 at JB Hi-Fi. But if you want the complete package, the NETGEAR Orbi Mesh WiFi System with Orbi Voice Smart Speaker (RBK50V) kit (contains an Orbi router and the Orbi Voice) will cost you AU$799 altogether.
