Summary: As an audio engineer, sound quality is most important when purchasing any audio device. I purchased an iMT810 about a year ago and have been very pleased with it. The sound quality is excellent with massive low end response, and the 7-band EQ allows for more fine audio tweaking than many other similar products. Also, the unit is very powerful for its relatively small size.
Summary: As others have said, I dont write reviews but in this case I have too! You will love this system. I took it to work to compare it to my sony explode and what a difference! The guys Got mad when I took the Lancing back home with me. Very clear highs and good lows. The bass is impressive. I like the passive radiator design for the second sub cause it drops the frequency and creates a really good balance.
Summary: I love this boombox. For the price it's great and the quility it just simple awesome. Had it for almost a year now. Brought this with every where bbqs, parks, beach and it's still working. Didn't have 400 dollars to burn on a Dr. Dre but I don't regret at all. With the weather warming up this will be great for yourself or as a gift.
Summary: This is my second purchase of the imt810. This newest one I bought for a friend who isn't internet savvy. He had heard mine blasting at a friends party and had to have one! Anyway, it arrived and I was setting it up for him and noticed the 7 band EQ was missing. Replaced with only treble and bass settings. The box said 7 band eq on it, the unit looks identical in every way! My first thought was this is stupid, why would they change the software?
Warranty is a lie the support from altec was miserable at best and the product description is miss leading or a lie rather

Summary: I bought this stereo and while it worked it was nice but after a few months of owning it the power adapter on the back of the stereo stopped working. It works with batteries but buying batteries or a nice set of rechargeable batteries is expensive and inconvenient. I contacted Altec to inquire about the warranty which was one of the selling points of the product for me as i am hearing impaired and was worried about speakers blowing out.
Summary: My daughter wanted a small system that she could connect her iPod to and play her music. Her only other request was that it had good bass. This unit has very good sound quality and plenty of low frequency power (i.e., good boom boom).
Summary: Having done our research regarding the IMT800 we figured lets buy it. Until now the unit was used about once every week for about 2 hours each time. The sound and features of the unit are quite acceptable. Unfortunately we were never able to get the batteries to work. As it turns out many others with this unit had the same issue. No big deal because we use it where there is power. The biggest issue is the recent one regarding the power adapter.
