Altec Lansing MIX iMT800 Review
28 June 2010
Conclusion: The MIX boombox by Altec Lansing packs a refreshing combination of features, connectivity, portability and powerful sound. While it performs well indoors, this retro styled boombox is most at home on your deck, patio or next to your breakdancing mat. The MIX’s comprehensive list of functions and awesome sound quality make it one of the best iPod speaker docks available and, at under $250.00 it’s a bargain, too.
Pros: Powerful Sound, Highly Portable, Rugged Construction, AC or Battery Powered
Summary: Of all the possible words you could use to describe the iMT800 Boombox, ordinary isn't likely to be one of them. Its in-your-face design means you'll probably love it or hate it, but it does have plenty going on beyond that in case you haven't made your mind up on face value.
Excerpt: Ahhhh, the 80′s….back when big hair, bell bottoms, disco, and soul-pounding boomboxes were all the rage. Thankfully most of the trends of the 1980′s have fallen to the passage of time. Over the past two decades since, how we listen to and travel with our music has certainly taken huge evolutionary steps.
Pros: Well made, quality construction, Excellent sound experience, Many input options, Built-in iPod/iPhone dock, Solid aluminum carrying handles, 7-band equalizer, Two year warranty (w/registration)
Conclusion: With multiple inputs, the Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 iPod dock lets you play DJ by connecting up to three MP3 players. It also delivers powerful, user-adjustable audio without distortion—even at high volumes, which is more than enough to make up for its disappointing remote control.
Pros: Tremendous power. Built-in subwoofer. Doesn't distort at high volumes. User-adjustable EQ. Two aux inputs and cables for additional MP3 players are included. Works with iPhone. FM tuner.
Cons: Not nearly as portable as advertised. Remote lacks full iPod menu navigation. No video out.
Excerpt: The Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 iPod dock looks and sounds impressive. Looking like an 80s ghetto blaster cross-bred with a Cylon, it packs some serious audio power in the form of dedicated tweeters, mid-range drivers and a side-mounted subwoofer. It isn't the cheapest iPod speaker system available (and the ongoing cost of D-cell batteries will be painful) but if you want to relive the glory days of carrying your music through the streets on your shoulder, there's no...
This Altec Lansing iPod speaker system has old-school looks and seriously impressive power

Pros: Powerful, portable, impressive looks, cool remote control
Cons: Not especially portable, no internal lithium-ion battery, expensive
Summary: My recently acquired iPod Nano 5th generation got an outing here. However hands up those who remember the ghetto blasters those of a certain age carried on their shoulders that will give you an idea of the size of this interesting product.
Summary: The design of Altec Lansing's Mix iMT800 may not appeal to everyone, but its winning combination of good performance, lots of oomph and portability makes it one of the best iPod speaker options out there.
Pros: Distinct, retrolicious design, Excellent sound for a system this size, FM radio, Two auxiliary inputs placed on the top of the unit for easy access, Portable (powered by eight D batteries), Slot for storing remote, which also clips onto a belt
Cons: Pricey, No AM radio, Would be nice if the system included a rechargeable battery, No video outputs
Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 im Test: bassgewaltiges iPod-Dock im Retro-Outfit
6 December 2010
Summary: In den 80er Jahren bedeuteten tragbare Audiosysteme: Kassetten. Und wenn die Tapes nicht nur eine Person beschallen sollten, dann gab es die dicken Ghettoblaster, die mehr Batterien fraßen als Homer Simpsons Donuts. Und die gibt es immer noch. Zumeist allerdings in Form von zerbrechlich wirkenden, auf modern getrimmten iPod-Docks.
Pros: schickes Retro-Design, toller Klang im kompakten Format, UKW-Radio, zwei Audioeingänge, optionaler Batteriebetrieb, Fernbedienung
Cons: keine Videoausgänge, kein Akku im Lieferumfang, kein AM-Radio
