Altec Lansing Mix Digital Boombox review
Rock n' Roll Music lover, J&R
15 November 2010
Summary: Love almost everything about this fine product. It charges all of my Ipod's. I love that it has an FM tuner and an equalizer. One flaw is that Altec did not include a headphone jack which I hate but I guess I can live without since the Speakers sound great. Gotta good deal at J&R after having shopped around a little bit.
Summary: I bought this as an anniversary gift for my husband and we both love it. It's portable, easy to use and has great sound! MY husband loves the awesome bass. The only cons are that it is a bit bulky (but still portable) and not the prettiest sound system but if you don't care about that, I totally recomend the system.
Summary: Really wanted to give this 4.5 stars. I needed to replace my Cambridge Soundworks portable unit that died. I really liked that it ran on 12 volts so I could take it camping. I wanted a new sound unit for camping and my backyard that was ac/dc and had great sound quality. This seriously limited options available! I read the reviews and picked this baby. It is really, really good. Bass is phenominal.
Pros: 7 Band Equalizer, Compact, Great Sound Quality, Huge bass if you want, Powerful, Runs on batteries
Summary: I bought this to replace the JVC RV-NB52 Portable "Kaboom" Box I had purchased. That system proved to just be too big and lacks portability in my book. I was very happy with the Altec Lansing I got to replace it. Although it doesn't have the integrated CD player I originally wanted, with 2 additional audio inputs, it's easy enough to hook a portable CD player up to it on the occasions when I want to play the discs and dont want to first transfer them to the ipod.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Sound Quality, Powerful
Summary: This product garnered the most positive reviews when I researched it. For the cost, better than the Bose. Overall good design. Just a bit quieter than I expected from the ads and review. Not a deal breaker though.
Summary: I had done quite a bit of research on the best bang for your buck in terms of docs. I've spent quite a bit of money in the past on those Ihome Docs and a few other brands as well. They just arn't worth it. They ruin the songs you play on them because they have no bass whatso ever and they just end up sounding very tinny. Unless you want to spend in the $300-500 range this truely is the best sounding doc I have come across so far. Nothing compares in it's price range.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Great Interface, Great Sound, PACKS ALOT OF BASS
Summary: After researching all the brands out there I took a chance on the altec without a review on it only a cheap u tube vid. I'm glad i did as it's a great sounding dock. If you're looking for exceptional bass and something you can even play in the house and fill a room with good sound, well this one will. The f m sold me as there are some other good brands out there but have no radio. The fm sounds as good as the i pod. I bought mine for my patio. The neighbors hate me!!
Pros: Easy To Transport, Great Interface, Great Sound
Summary: I saw this online a while ago and foresaw two big problems: it's heavy and there is no built in rechargeable battery. I saw it in a store though and found out that it was not too heavy, but definitely not super light or small. Its potability is good for bus rides, but not plane trips or short trips either. I think it has great sound with no distortion. Then comes to the biggest con; it requires 8 D cell batteries, which are extremely expensive.
