A Father’s Day tribute to beloved music in the age of smart speakers

Turn it up to 11. For dad.

In 2001, my dad bought me my first “hi-fi”, the classic Altec Lansing 641 computer speakers, which included four oversized satellites and the biggest subwoofer I’d ever seen.

Even if they accidentally send your private conversations once and a while, smart speakers are awesome tools. I use my multiple Google Homes on the daily, and it looks like a lot of other people do, too.

They might not sound quite as good, but they’re less intrusive to the phone’s overall design.

Built-in audio has never been a particularly strong suit for most phones. Manufacturers are usually happy to just drill a couple of holes into the bottom of their devices and call it a day, but the end result is usually a tinny, thin-sounding speaker that’ll leave you connecting to headphones or Bluetooth speakers more often than not.
