Not only is this a great leap for Alexa which, until earlier this year, supported 12,000 products, but also takes the game to its biggest competitor, Google Assistant, which, in comparison, only supports a little over 5,000 smart devices and an unspecified number of brands (as of May 2018). The Echo Input is not dissimilar to Google's Chromecast Audio except that it incorporates mics to recognize voice commands, but will retail for US$35.
If you're a bit more of an audiophile, you'll want to check out the Echo Link or Echo Link Amp. It will let you play music, watch video, view recipes and look at news briefs.

To help avoid miscommunications, the device uses eight microphones specifically designed for in-car acoustics. Turn-based directions now work with Waze and Apple Maps. When you do, your various Echo devices will send you a notification if they hear certain sounds-an alarm going off, a window shattering, etc. It will say, "you left the porch light on". The goal here is to connect all types of devices in your house, tightly integrated with the internet which can be controlled easily with a voice.
The top is rather plasticky though and while it's hardly likely people will be put off by this, it's clear that the finish quality isn't as good as the super-expensive Apple HomePod or, say, a Sonos device.
