Altec Lansing Octiv Duo M202

PC Magazine
5 March 2011
  • 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.

Altec Lansing Octiv Duo M202

18 January 2011
  • Summary: If you're looking for a compact, affordable speaker for your bedside table that charges two iPhone or iPods simultaneously, the Octiv Duo is well designed and offers reasonably good sound for the money.
  • Pros: Dual docks for two iPods or iPhones; compact, elegant design; decent sound for small size; two free apps deliver full alarm clock and dual iPod-mixing functionality; electromagnetically shielded so iPhone can be used without switching to airplane mode; USB port for charging other portable devices; included remote control magnetically attaches to the back of the speaker.
  • Cons: Take away the iPhone apps and the Octiv Duo is a fairly basic iPod speaker; app doesn't automatically launch when you dock your device; circular remote control takes some getting used to.

Altec Lansing Octiv Duo Review

  • Summary: There’s very little to dislike with the Altec Lansing Octiv Duo.  It’s a solid dual dock system that’s priced competitively for anyone looking to add a speaker system to a small room.  It’s also friendly to guests and simple to understand.   In addition, the inclusion of the Music Mix and Alarm Rock apps alleviate the usability of the system significantly.
