On the other hand, the Echo Link Amp brings in a 2 channel, 60W digital amplifier to the table giving users the ability to connect their Echo devices to stereo speakers for hi-fi audio playback. The Echo Link measures 4.5 x 5.3 x 2.7 inches while the Echo Link Amp is larger at 8.5 x 9.5 x 3.4 inches as it comes with a built-in amplifier.
