Excellent sound quality; unit is somewhat unstury
9 July 2009
Summary: Certainly worth the money.
Pros: This unit puts out loud sound and doesn't distort at the high end. I can't comment on bass-pounding lows as I don't listen to rap, but acoustics are fabulous. This unit is very portable, as well. The rechargeable battery is an awesome feature for such a nice sounding unit
Cons: The speaker system is unstable. The iPod connection on the front (see pictures) folds out, and there is a stabilizing bracket that angle back, and when a reasonable amount of force is applied to the system either end can begin to fold in. However, once this unit is in its final location, all's we...
Summary: Still a bit pricey, but overall a good portable system for various inputs. Haven't tried the Aux yet, so don't know how good it will sound.
Pros: Nice clear sound, with a decent amount of bass. Works with both my IPod Classic and Nano. Suprised that small speakers would put out a good amount of sound, I had it a mid volume and could hear it crisp and clear from a room away. At a decent sound level (when used at my desk), battery life was p...
Cons: Buttons on both the remote and unit take some getting use to. Sometimes have to push them multiple times to work, I suppose they may have to be broken in/used a little to prevent it. ESS function tends to drown out vocals, mainly on IPod. But, it does give a more surround feel to the music
Summary: The Altec Lansing IMT 702 is a great buy if you want fine looking docking station to sit in the loo or kitchen shelf. It would be WAY too small for a living room. This update on the IM600 chucks out noticeably more sound and is much less prone to distort when cranked up (I had the Mumfords on full...
Summary: Just got this bit of kit having put up with a cheap Gear4 Ipod speaker which I was disappointed with as soon as it arrived(the first of which broke after a few months to be replaced by a second which also packed in recently - won't buy one of their speakers again I'm afraid).
Summary: Great piece of kit but beware - it's not ready for the ophone4, only 3G. This wasn't clear when I bought it. It will play but does not charge at same time, so you have to charge separately and can only use the system for your iphone4 if you've already charged it which is a bit of a pain.
Summary: We just treated ourselves to one of these for Christmas to replace a dying Aiwa micro-system in the dining/kitchen. The size is perfect and sounds great, I tested this alongside many others in John Lewis and this stood out for sound quality and size vs price.
Summary: Doesn't have quite as much "oomph" as my old iPod Hifi (the big brick) but loads more features, terrific portability (it will happily fit into my backpack when I cycle to Wimpole St), and good quality sound at low to middling volume.
Summary: as said by others, sound quality is good, provided you dont crank it up too high. However, you shouldnt expect Bose quality, this units strength lies in its portability - the built in battery makes it perfect to take outside for bbq, wasing the car, gardening etc.
