Converted an old stereo from the 1960s with an Airport Express 2 but are curious how to get Alexa capability

Cupertino, November 21, 2023

The title pretty much says it all, but I reconditioned an old 50,000lb Magnavox stereo console (give or take) and recorder with the original huge woofers and horns. Pretty simple conversion to "smart" - just added an Airport Express and got Airplay 2 with it via an AUX to RCA (red/white) cable. While I appreciate being able to stream from my phone, I miss the ability of Alexa. "Alexa, play Mad Men soundtrack on Stereo Console." Any idea what type of component I could add to it to replace my airport? An Echo has an AUX port, but it's big. So finding an Echo Dot 3 at a pawn shop is my best bet?
