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: 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.
