  • Summary: I purchased one of these and after a while the Doc stopped working. I called Altec Lansing and was told the would not honor the warranty because it was not purchased from and authorized dealer. Be Aware!!!!!! I called many people but no luck. I will not longer purchase Altec Lansing products.

Failure

Piscato, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the Altec Lansing Model M812 wireless speaker system for a Christmas present for my wife from Amazon. The unit never would work properly. I followed the instructions exactly and had the transmitter/base within 20 feet of the speaker, unobstructed line of sight.

Didn't work; would not sync

Paul Curran "Adjusting Fine", Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: For $93 for Prime, this looked like a great deal to get a cheap Sonos like system. I bought two units despite the mixed reviews. I plugged in the unit and it worked for about 1 minute. Then the "No Sync" display came up. I am technically capable. I turned off ALL 802.11 wireless devices in my house.

  • Summary: The Unit sounded good when I first bought it but now never works. The Speaker unit and the docking unit never want to "SYNC". I read the manual, tried everything it said to correct to the problem to no avail.

Does not work with iPhone 4

Timothy Chestnut "Typhoon", Amazon
17 May 2011
  • Summary: Yes it does play songs in your list but most of its functionalities can not be used with iPhone4. Warning after every time I use the dock was an additional annoyance. In my book, it adds to "does not work" period!

Awful junk!!!!!!!!

G. Grieser, Amazon
5 March 2011
  • Summary: It seemed Altec had just what I wanted!!! I read the reviews and noticed users really praised the item or dissed it, with few in betweens. Now I know why. The first unit I ordered would not even power up, so I had Amazon send a replacement.

Sounds great, but the wireless feature stinks!

JCos, Amazon

  • Summary: After shopping for a portable/small iPod stereo system, I decided to give the 812 a chance being it was for such a good price. Now I know why. The sound is great. The design is nice, although very heavy.
