Google released a new $ 99 smart speaker this year, and it’s really cool. But Google’s biggest speaker, Home Max, is still its best. It is also the most expensive – MSRP $ 299. But for Black Friday, Max’s price is halved at several retailers: starting today, you can buy it for only $ 149.
In my review of the new Nest Audio, I said that at full price, a pair of Nest speakers ($ 178) is more profitable for most buyers than a single Google Home Max. I still think so, but half Max – that’s incredible value – and makes a more powerful sound than even a pair of Nest Audio can. Plus, the Home Max has a 3.5mm input, so you can use it with an analog audio source such as a turntable.
You can get this price from many retailers:
Google says the sale will run until December 2, but don’t sleep on it: it’s Google’s best Black Friday deal this year by a wide margin, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it sells out before then.
