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. Real shame it wasn't v clear when I bought it and that they haven't updated the piece of kit yet.
Summary: Exactly what i expected from reading previous reviews - so thanks for that! The control buttons are a bit temperamental, and awkwardly placed for reaching for the remote, but it's a great sounding system, and it's extremely handy for charging iphone 4 with bumper case on (contray to previous review). Then there's the added bonus that it has a 3 hour recharable battery built-in for using in a differnt location without power supply. Overall very please.
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. One annoyance is the touch sensitive controls - inevitably you press then if moving the player around the house.
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). Anyway, my new Altec sounds good, was very easy to set up and, I think, looks good too. My only minor gripe is the sensitive controls on top of the unit.
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 blast this morning in the shower and couldn't have asked for a better, richer sound). On these strenghts alone I'm glad I bought it.
Summary: Read all the reviews and settled on this unit. Came with a bespoke travel bag that I thought was a gimmick but have since found it to be essential. Marked the plastic getting the stickers off so a word of caution. The unit has nice warm sound that easily fills a room and I have used it for ambience at barbecues and it has proved highly efficient. battery life has yet to be a problem as it easiily lasts 3hrs plus on a full charge.
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. As a occasionally peripatetic bodywork therapist it is perfect for delivering appropriate music as an accompaniment to my ministrations. It can also double as a bedside radio/alarm.
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. It is portable and can be unplugged and carried into other rooms, it fills both dining room and kitchen with sound thta is loud enough to have to shout over and can be heard clearly upstairs at that sort of volume.
