My question is regards the BTM-1 and Amazon Alexa integration. My system AV pre-amp is the UMC-200. Alexa is able to “see it” but unable to connect all my other devices works fine. I Did however recently bough the TaoTronics Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver with Digital Optical (TOSLINK) And hoop it up to the UMC-200, and created an “Activity” in the Creative Ultimate Harmony remote in order to access it with Alexa. Now I have to activate the activity first then pair amazon Alexa to the Bluetooth receiver and reverse the process to enable Amazon Alexa once more. I Love the integration specially with the music, news, audio books and online pod cast streaming but it is too steps. My question is, is they are any way to connect this two devices? I will love to instantly pair Amazon Alexa with the BTM-1 and call it quit. Thanks in Advance.
Which version of the Echo do you have? The Echo Dot has a 3.5mm out that you could connect to the UMC-200. You would be reliant on the DAC of the Echo Dot though as opposed to the UMC-200. If you are just listening to podcasts and books then it should be sufficient.
