Great sound so far

Summary: Just purchased and used for one evening. The sound quality is great, given the size of the unit. Better than I even expected. Not as good as a Bose docking station, but this unit is only a fraction of the price. The radio works well too, but the antenna needs to be raised to get good reception. I have an iPhone 4S. This docking station worked with the music playing function and with Pandora.
Summary: This is a fantastic little radio for the price. Don't expect to get Bose quality sound, but! It does sound real nice for the price range. (and, I'll be honest, I first purchased the Bose sound dock portable, and if I were to rate that, it wasn't worth the money! It was nice, it was clear sounding, but not worth $400.00- it actually didn't sound quite as clear in my home as in the store, and especially less volume outdoors played loudly- but what do you want out of a...

Summary: ASIN B002I636XM - I live, and sometimes work, speaking and surrounded by people speaking tech-speak. I get so tired of it that even here, where it might be suitable, I'm drawn to speak in normal English. I feel like I ought to apologize. I love the iMT620, no doubt. That doesn't make it flawless. In the way of improvement over the , the 620 is more bass-y / less tinny, a big plus to me, and it works with the iPhone, a big plus to others.
Good system. Works with nano 3g No significant flaws. Good audio. Worth the money compared to similiar units in the price range

Summary: This review is much shorter and most of what I say has been listed in my review of the Altec Lansing IM600. First as I mentioned it works with the ipod nano 3g without even using the adapter flawlessly. The sound quality is very similiar to the IM600. It's only weakness compared to it is that the sound quality is VERY slightly more scratchy/harsher sounding in the mid or high range than the IM600. It makes up for this in its main pro.
Summary: I tend to be suspect of initial reviews...too much like the first three days of being in love. ;-) Having said that, I rec'd the 620 today. Have had the IM600 for well over a year (possibly a year & a half) and like it. Not the greatest sound but good for my office, guest room & love the portability for doing tasks around the house. I've had an Altec Lansing IM9 for over a year for one room that has poor acoustics & the IM600 sounds like a cheap radio in.
Summary: I wanted a portable iPod speaker with rechargeable batteries and a remote. There are really only two in my price range, this one and the Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere 2. I checked both of them out, and decided the Altec-Lansing looked a little cheap and plasticy. I bought the Logitech without testing it first, and when I got it home I actually liked it okay, until I compared it to my 4-year old JBL OnStage, which has a nice range of tone without too much bass.
Great sound, magnetically shielded for iPhone use, doesn't work with streaming audio

Summary: I got this to replace my iM600 since it causes interference when used with the iPhone. The sound quality of the inMotion Classic is better than the iM600 and overall functionality with the full feature remote is better. We use it as a portable device to listen to Audio Books from Audible and it's easy to carry around the house and catch missed NPR shows "on demand" using the NRP App.
Summary: I recently was given the opportunity to test out and try this Altec Lansing iMT620 inMotion Classic Portable iPod Dock with Rechargeable Battery and FM Tuner and jumped at the chance. As my kids get older and we start doing more things outside so mobility is becoming more and more important. Music lovers want to share their sounds with friends and family on the go.
