If you’re after a smart speaker that will satisfy your audio needs and is able to give you a serious sound blast, then you'll want to take a look at the monster-sized Google Home Max.
The Home Max is the largest and most powerful out of Google’s family of smart speakers, weighing 5.3kg – at that level of heft, it could potentially double as a music-playing dumbbell! It also houses two 4.5-inch subwoofers for bass lovers and of course, has the popular Google Assistant built-in.
What sets this speaker apart from the rest is that it’ll adjust its music playback automatically depending on room-size and placement. This is super handy and an incredible advancement in home tech which makes it one of the smartest speakers around.
The microphone has also been improved and is more than capable of picking up your requests from the other side of the room – even with music blaring out at significant volume.
In summary, the Google Home Max is among the smartest speakers around, delivering amazingly large sound from a relatively small device with a clever design that lifts it above the competition. Currently available in charcoal through JB Hi-Fi for only AU$198 – that’s an incredible saving of AU$199!

The Nespresso’s Vertuo is one smart machine – its recyclable pods come with a barcode which the machine reads to tailor the specific blending technique required to make your favourite cuppa, with the pod spinning up to 7000 times a minute to create some impressively rich crema.

One of the only downsides we’ve found with this pod machine is that it only works with Nespresso pods – these aren’t exactly cheap, meaning it may cost you a pretty penny to feed your daily caffeine addiction.
On the whole, the Nespresso Vertuo Plus is convenient, neat, reliable, easy to use and it creates magnificent coffees with minimal effort that also comes with a nifty Aeroccino3 milk frother. What are you waiting for? You can grab yours directly through Nespresso’s eBay store.
