Altec Lansing Octiv Duo Review
Audio Video Revolution
19 April 2011
Excerpt: You just can’t get away from the iPod. It dominates the mobile audio space and everyone seems to have one these days either in iPhone form or the standard iPod Touch. While Apple’s perfected the personal experience of music with their portable line of iPods, they have left the sharing of music up to 3rd part manufactures. The iPods’s internal speakers certainly don’t cut it, so companies like Altec Lansing have developed solutions for music lovers that want to share...
Conclusion: It may not be an audiophile masterpiece, but the Octiv Mini M202, with its dual docks and free mixing app, may just inspire harmony in your multiple-iPod home.
Pros: Charges and plays music for two docked iPods. Free app mixes music from both iPods and lets you choose play time percentages for each. Simple design with a handy cubbyhole for the remote control. Full iPod navigation on remote.
Cons: Audio quality isn't bad, but distorts at high volumes. Music Mix app won't work for iPod nano or other non-iOS iPods.
Excerpt: At first glance, the Altec Lansing Octiv Duo looks like many other of the dual iPod docks on the market. It can charge two iPods or iPhones simultaneously, while pumping out the music stored on either through its speakers.
Excerpt: At first glance, the Altec Lansing Octiv Duo looks like many other of the dual iPod docks on the market. It’s sleek and black, with its 181x327x133mm triangular design fitting neatly into tight spaces and corners. It’s capable of charging up to two iPods or iPhones simultaneously, while pumping out the music stored on either through its speakers.
Sleek design, decent audio, free apps make the most of your music players
