JBL’s Link range of Google Assistant enabled speakers has been joined by a high-end model with the JBL Link 500 now available to purchase for $569.95.

The speaker contains four speakers – two x 89mm woofers and two x 20mm tweeter with a total output power of four x 15W. There’s support for dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless connections, and on-board controls

The speaker has far-field voice recognition with support for Google Assistant, allowing you to access all your smart home controls, streaming music and search with your voice. It’s also Chromecast compatible, allowing you to cast your favourite multimedia apps to the speaker for a big sound.

The RRP may be $569.95 but that’s not what you should pay, with Harvey Norman offering the speaker from just $397 in both Black or White colour options.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

$397 at HN?! Far out, that’s good value. My Link 20 has been great.
