Apple launched a new Echo speaker yesterday with a futuristic spherical design and new features borrowed from the Echo Studio and Echo Plus. It also unveiled a globe-shaped version of the budget Echo Dot. Normally, you’d pay full price to get all-new devices, but Amazon is offering pre-orders of the Echos at a discount from the get-go. The catch is that you have to buy two — if you get two Echos, you’ll get $30 off and pay $170 instead of $200 (use the code ECHO2PK). For the Echo Dot, you’ll spend $80 instead of $100 for two Echo Dots (use the code DOT2PACK), for a $20 discount.

The Echo speaker has more going for it than the spherical design that evokes vintage Grundig Audiorama speakers from the ‘70s. It has also gained all of the smart hub features from the Echo Plus, along with support for Amazon’s Sidewalk smart home tech. It can automatically tune itself to deliver the best sound quality for your space. And for the first time, Amazon has added machine learning smarts that’ll let the Echo model neural speech recognition so it can understand you better.

Meanwhile, the Echo Dot has also has a spherical design and costs $50, or half the price of the Echo. If you’ve been looking to get a couple of Echos to spread around the home and are attracted to the latest design, they’re now available to pre-order.
