Wonder whether within a year Amazon will sell a gizmo -- let's call it Echo Vault -- that will walk, quack, and paddle like a Roon Nucleus -- oh, and do a bunch of Amazon-y things as well, like maybe integrate with Fire, Ring, etc. And costs, say, half of what a Nucleus does. Could be a pretty compelling platform. Heck, it might make sense for Amazon to just flat out acquire Roon. Hard to know what the ROI would be -- I'm sure someone at Amazon is running those kind of numbers all the time -- but if it makes Amazon the channel through which everyone else must flow, and they collect a little toll for providing that -- then it could conceivably happen. Apple might be able to remain independent and separate as a combined hardware and service provider, but not sure anyone else could. Do I *want* this to happen? No. I like competition and innovation, and Amazon kind of sucks it from any marketplace they enter and dominate...but if there's any money to be made -- especially with predictable recurring revenues -- Amazon will likely go there.
