Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen) vs Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen) — which smart display should you buy?

Dec 27, 2023
Your description of the physical speakers is in correct: the 2nd gen has `2.0” (52 mm) neodymium speakers with passive bass radiator,` which seems to be unchanged for the 3rd gen. The 3rd does improved sound due to more processing as you described but I don't expect it to be a massive difference.
