Amazon’s latest Alexa speaker and a 21st century turntable join our Lust List

Some of the gadgetry on this week’s Lust List

Amazon first unveiled the swiveling Echo Show 10 device months ago, but it’s finally arrived over here in the UK.

And it’s been joined by a host of other gadgets we’ve rounded up for this week’s Lust List.

If anything, this week’s theme is one of updated retro tech. There’s a very 21st century turntable from Audio Technica and a re-imagined version of the iconic Atari 2600.

Also, because there’s seemingly no gadget that Alexa won’t cuddle up with, we’ve found a microwave boasting Amazon’s talkative digital assistant. Yep, a microwave.

Rounding out the list are some stylish new offerings from Dyson and Montblanc just to make things extra classy.
