Summary: Picked this up because I liked the modern ghetto blaster look. Not totally authentic, but a good effort. Like the large carrying handles and that it can be run off batteries. The two aux points is perhaps the best feature.
Summary: I purchased the Bose system and returned it since there were no controls of the bass and treble on the unit itself – only on the remote. Lose the remote and you are hosed! Tried this Altec Lansing and love the sound and it has more than treble and base and includes an equalizer the Bose system did...
Summary: One of the most spontaneous purchase decisions I've ever made was the ordering of a Bose Wave unit for almost $1,200.00 dollars. What was I thinking? I received it, opened it, powered it up and was immediately disappointed. One hour was all it took to decide to send it back.
Summary: I rate sound equipment on how it sounds on low volume. The iMT800 delivers a deep base and clean sound at this level. AS you increase the volume there is no distortion. Other people at work have commented on how good it sounds. In my opinion it outperforms the Bose.
Summary: Wow the sound on this thing was amazing! I love listening to bass heavy music and the sound on this thing just blew me away. I live suburbs of Los Angeles and the radio sounded really good too. Picked up my favorite radio station with nor problems.

Summary: I really like my new MIX IMT800. I did have to order a replacement, as the first one arrived with a problem in the electrical hookup. I reported the problem on a Tuesday afternoon and had a new one on my porch the next day. I use it all of the time. Now my son wants one for his room.
