What do you guys think about the high price point of the HomePod. I personally feel it might not sell well

I think that the HomePod should do relatively well.

Apple can leverage its branding to attract its loyal customers. The HomePod is also positioned as a premium smart speaker, so homeowners that want top quality sound will pay a little extra for the music experience.

I recently wrote a blog to compare the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod. You can read it here: https://getmysa.com/blogs/2017/06/30/a-review-of-personal-home-assistants/

I wish the HomePod had an input much like the Sonos Connect so I could connect my existing receiver and speakers to Siri Voice Control.
