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.
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.
Summary: This thing didn't last a day. We had one before, but it was an earlier model and it was Great! But, this one didn't play after 1 day with brand new batteries., nor did it play when plugged into a charger,. It had to have been a lemon. We returned it for a refund.
Summary: 1 star not because the product itself was bad. Quite frankly, I loved this stereo and it was my baby. However, this stereo has a FATAL design flaw where it stops powering on right around when the warranty ends. Beware! Find another brand too while you're at it.
Great Sound but would not power after a couple of months

Summary: The sound is very impressive considering the size, I think it is the best sounding dock available. The only downside, and to me is a small one, is that at low volumes the bass overpowers the treble and mid sections of music, you have to play with the EQ to level it out.
