Went from a Google Home to this one but was quite disappointed with the sound. Sure, it's better than the first generation Home, but it also has many years on its neck. There is weight in the speaker and it feels well built even if mine was faulty. It was uneven underneath on the rubber plate and stood rocking. With a little better quality control, you might have noticed this ...?
But I took the opportunity to try it before it was repurchased.
As an assistant, it is really good, but I had hoped that Google had invested more in sound now that the competitors have run around a long time ago.
This caused me to return it and add a penny and buy a Harman Kardon Citation One instead. It's a little bigger, has Google Assistant and much better sound. If you do not just want it as an assistant, I recommend this instead. Almost twice as expensive but the sound more like Google Home Max. (Iaf on medium to longer sound levels)
There is also a good review of audio and video to read.
In total. Nest Audio is an affordable assistant speaker that unfortunately does not quite live up to the expectations regarding the sound. Mine was also faulty and it had to be returned.
Hope Google invests in releasing a few more and better models or start selling the ones they already have here in Sweden. We want Google Home Max or Nest Hub Max here too!
