Summary: I really like this for awhile. The sound id pretty good, not the best. Good for the size though. And the ipod dock is nice too. The problem is that it stopped working while plugged in to an outlet and only worked with batteries. I tried to get it fixed but there was no refund or help from Altec Lansing..ridiculous. I eventually sold it to a friend who is good with electronics, he fixed it and I got a good deal. My question is why Altec wouldnt fix mine.
Summary: This could be an excellent product... but it gets two stars for a glitch Altec Lansing hasn't fixed yet. I loved the sound and the advertised capabilities of this unit, but it just doesn't perform as a "portable" unit. I had two units, both new from Amazon, that demonstrated the following: When operating only on battery power, each unit would shut off on its own (about every two minutes) with a "Battery Low" message flash.
Warning before you buy an Altec Lansing Stereo or any other product

Summary: Let me begin by saying don't write too many reviews on Amazon; but I was simply amazed by my experience and figured I could do someone else a favor by passing it on. I purchased the iMT800 stereo, which is the previous model, about one year and four months ago now. The unit is nice and there are no issues in the aesthetics or sound quality, aside from the the midtones which are a bit lacking.
