Altec Lansing Mix iMT800

CNET

  • 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 8 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 Review

Digitaltrends
28 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Anyone who was a teen in the ‘80s will tell you that THE must-have item at the time was a boombox. It didn’t matter that they were expensive and ate up pricey batteries for breakfast; being able to blast your jams anytime and anywhere was crucial for your coolness quotient. As time passed and technology advanced from cassette to CD, the boombox hung around, but its popularity waned as the portable CD player nudged in on its territory.
  • Pros: Powerful Sound, Highly Portable, Rugged Construction, AC or Battery Powered
  • Cons: No Video Output, Slightly Bright Treble

  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Its bombastic styling might not be to all tastes, but unlike many classic boomboxes from back in the day, the iMT800 is not all show and has a generosity of sound you don't normally get with iPod docks. Having room for a 5.25in subwoofer certainly helps, and means you can turn the volume right up without distortion. You need a whopping eight D-sized batteries to keep it running, but it's portable too.
  • Cons: Some things about the 80s belong there, and the iMT800's size and near-7kg weight will be a real turn-off for some. With an RRP of £270, meanwhile, there's nothing old-fashioned about the price tag, and for that kind of money we'd expect some degree of iPod integration on the remote control or at least a video output.

Altec Lansing iMT800 MIX BoomBox Review

The Gadgeteer
10 February 2010
  • 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)
  • Cons: No stereo bluetooth wireless streaming

Altec Lansing Mix iMT800

  • 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.

Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 im Test: bassgewaltiges iPod-Dock im Retro-Outfit

CNET
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
