    So after all the news, all the hype, and all the amazing-ness, I have one question for you:

    Are you getting the new HomePod?

    I just don't know... I want to wait and see what it's really like, and then when I have a bundle of cash, I'll decide.

    No. I’m very happy with my two Sonos speakers, Amazon Echo and two Echo Dots.

    No, I am quite happy with my speaker set ups with Chromecast Audios plugged into them for non-Bluetooth streaming.

    Not going with HomePod due to: price; lack of bluetooth; lack of aux plugin; DC power only.
    Feeling comfortable with my recent Bose Revolve purchase, which came with a very responsive Echo Dot.

    No, I don’t even use Siri that much.
    Plus I just got a new Series 3 Nike+ Silver with Pure Platinum/Black band.

    I am not sure yet. I need to freshen myself up on it and what all it can do.

    It is a little pricey for me at this point. I have several Sonos speakers in my home and would gladly add 2 more ones in place of a HomePod.

    Nope. Seems crippled compared to others if you plan to use it for more than just siri.

    No. Overpriced for what it is. I mean let's be real here, Siri isn't the greatest on our phones so why would I want it in a speaker?

    I married an audiophile that would rather shovel his eyes out with a spork than use anything other than floor speakers to listen to our music. We have several of the old Sonos Connects throughout the house. Enough power to vibrate the floors of the homes on both sides of us.

    If I even mentioned getting one of these HomePods, he'd probably turn several shades of puke green.

    Like others I’m way too invested in Sonos and Alexa’s throughout the house. Gonna pass on the HomePod

    I’ve been saving up those $25 Apple Store gift cards (from Apple’s Visa card). So I am getting a “Free” HomePod.
    I don’t have to justify the cost if it costs me nothing but the Applecare!

    Not a chance. Far too limited in abilities at that price.

    Honestly, Apple really needs to invest in developing siri properly before diving into smart speakers. They are getting left in the dust by Amazon and Google.

    I'll pass on it! I don't summon Siri that much and I already cringe when I hear that voice as it is. Plus it's too pricey and crippled with limitations from the start. No thank you Apple!!

    I'm sure it will sound good but not enough to justify the price. On top of that I think that the Echo offers way more integrations at a much lower price. And I'm not talking about smart home integrations but integrations to other services.

    Yep I'll order one on Friday. I like playing with new toys. Play music, handle basic requests and control my HomeKit devices will be enough for now. Added bonus will be if it integrates with my Apple TV's. Would be sweet if I can tell it to play a movie or TV show on the Living room (or bedroom) Apple TV

    Not for that insanely high price. Google Home costs less than half the price of the HomePod.

    I guess I fail to understand use case scenarios. Why can’t I just pick my phone up and do whatever?

    No.
    I just can't justify the price and my usage.

    HomePod is one of those rare Apple products I have no desire to have. I still can't get used to speaking commands, and my sound bar/subwoofer combo has bluetooth. It sounds good enough to me atm.

    I will be getting it. I held off doing anything related because of my interest in it.
