Summary: I love altec products - and this one doesn't disappoint. I was looking for small, portable speakers for my iPod to use at work, and this one is GREAT. the sound quality is really good (haven't tried blasting it, though). it is VERY simple to operate (power button, up and down volume buttons, dock, and power supply plug-in in the back), and has the ability to plug in a subwoofer at some point if i want. definitely a GREAT product for about 50 bucks!!
Summary: Seen the Bose systems and their sound was amazing as was the price. A friend mentioned he had found a product that work just as well from Overstock I searched and found this unit I am very pleased and have purchased 2 one for me and my oldest daughter. It is small and fits on my desk at work. I also take it with me for my business trips. Great buy great sound.
Summary: I ordered this for use in my bathroom/bedroom. It's been great so far. I have had it about a month and so far, so good. I'm no expert on audio, but for my purposes, the sound is full, loud and there's not any hiss or distortion at reasonably loud levels. It comes with a cute travel pouch, which is nice and charges the ipod also. I would recommed for the price it's a steal and the quality is nice.
Summary: This is a great buy! The sound is fantastic! The only this I wish was a little easier is the volume control. You just push down on a + or a - to go louder or softer. You really have to push firmly. And because you are always pressing on it, it does leave a normal markings from your finger. Your finger even clean will start to leave a mark that looks like dirt. But it is a great buy.
Summary: I will have to say I was impressed....this item was more than I expected....god value for the $$...i compared the new Bose Docking Station to this im5, and for what i paid...less than $60.00 dollars( Bose $400.00 ) I got a great deal and it sure serves the purpose....
Summary: I was thrilled with the compact size and the stereo system itself. We wanted something small for our living room and this was perfect. I love Altec and will always purchase their IPOD friendly products because the sound quality is excellent.
Summary: The size is great, the fact that it comes with connectors to different outlets, a bag for it and it can opperate on batteries is all really helpful but my 10 year old boom box has better sound quality! It distorts at any type of moderately loud volume. While the rest of the features are desireable I am primarily trying to purchase a product with good sound quality and that is where this product fails.
Summary: I bought these to have in my dorm room not expecting them to be too loud because of the size. I'm a college student, and I have high standards for loudness, and these are LOUD. And guess what, the quality isn't bad at all! It's very crisp and clear, even when I turn the volume up all the way!
Summary: I was looking for a Ipod speaker system for my 11 year old's birthday that was reasonably priced. After listening to the sound quality of similarly priced systems, the Altec Lansing blew away the competition. It's compact enough to fit in an already cluttered room, and easy to carry with you wherever you go.
