Altec Lansing Octiv Stage MP450 Review

30 December 2010
  • Conclusion: The Altec Lansing Octiv Stage is one of only a couple iPad docks available on the market with speakers. The $149 price is a little steep, but considering there are few competing products out there, it’s simply the best you can get. We would like to see better remote capabilities in the future, and possibly an integrated subwoofer, if Altec can somehow find out how to make room for it.
  • Pros: Stylish design, Sturdy build quality, Decent sound relative to size, Remote control
  • Cons: Expensive, Limited controls on remote, Bass distorts at high volumes

Altec Lansing Octiv Stage (MP450)

PC Magazine
19 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Slowly but surely, the iPad speaker docks are rolling out, and the Altec Lansing Octiv Stage (MP450) gets the physical design right, but lacks stellar sound or a useful remote.
  • Pros: Compact design. Excellent rotating docking arm allows for vertical, horizontal and even flat viewing.
  • Cons: Poor audio performance for the price. Remote control does not navigate the iPad well. Can't use alarm apps—even ones from Altec Lansing.

Altec Lansing Octiv Stage MP450

12 September 2010
  • Summary: If you can look past its so-so sound quality on music, the impressively flexible design of the Altec Lansing Octiv Stage MP450 turns your iPad into a video monitor for bedside or kitchen viewing.
  • Pros: Speaker dock that supports iPad along with iPhone/iPod; excellent tilt/swivel design allows you to put your iPad in portrait or landscape mode; works with Altec's Alarm Rock iPhone app to deliver a rich alarm clock feature set; remote included.
  • Cons: Thin bass; basic feature set; somewhat high price tag.

Expert Review

5 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Stand-up Performer Sure the iPad 2’s rolling Smart Cover kinda handily props up your iPad 2 in landscape mode. But Altec Lansing’s Octiv Stage not only lifts your Pad high and sturdy on its stand in a swivelling choice of landscape and portrait mode, but also adds a solid little speaker system below.

Altec Lansing Octiv 450 review

Pocket Lint
21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: The Altec Lansing Octiv 450 is the (video) docking station that the iPad was crying out for. Sure, it may not have the best speakers on board, so it's unlikely to impress audiophiles with its sound-output, but it's a very handy device if you're looking to utilise your tablet as more than a browsing machine. It looks great sat on the kitchen counter and it really does enhance the video playback features of the iPad.
  • Pros: Enhances iPad video playback by offering a nice clear sound.
  • Cons: Music playback isn't the greatest as it struggles with bass.

Altec Lansing Octiv 450

10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Conocida por la calidad de sus productos, Altec Lansing no ha permanecido ajena a la “fiebre iPad”, desarrollando productos para el ecosistema del tablet de Apple con el Octiv 450 , unos altavoces que también valen para el iPhone y el iPod y que no permiten disfrutar de calidad de audio con un sencillo manejo y a un precio, sino cargar el dispositivo.

  • Excerpt: Avec l'Octiv 450, le fabricant Altec Lansing s'attaque au marché très sélectif des stations d'accueil pour iPad en oubliant malheureusement un peu ses origines qui ont fait son succès sur le segment des enceintes pour PC.
