I have the original Homepod and I really don't know what to do with it. It's a decent speaker, but it's just so lonely. I wish one can have cross compatibility between the old and new. I feel like of all the purchases of Apple products I've made over the years, the Homepod is the one I regret the most.
buy another one in the used market, it is what I did to have a stereo pair
