Altec Lansing Octiv Stage (MP450)

PC Magazine
22 January 2011
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Stylish design, Sturdy build quality, Decent sound relative to size, Remote control
  • Cons: Expensive, Limited controls on remote, Bass distorts at high volumes

  • Excerpt: The saying goes that the cloths make the man. Along the same lines one could argue that apps and accessories make the iPad. Think about it… the iPad is a pretty remarkable device in and of itself but the “magical” experience truly takes off when Cupertino’s tablet is used in conjunction with some...
  • Pros: Holds iPad in landscape or portrait; Charges through its wall charger; Offers a variety of viewing angles; Sounds good and gets quite loud for its size; Truly enjoyable to use
  • Cons: Remote offers limited functionality; iPad cannot be used in a case; No sound “tweaks” built-in; Designed specifically for a product that is over 6 months old and will soon be refreshed with a design that might, or might not, be the same

  • Excerpt: Lansing has sensibly limited its maximum output well short of distortion levels, so it’s not a party device, more the perfect personal sound system for your pristine Pad. And it does fit the iPad 2’s new tapered connector, using a small adaptor supplied for the purpose.

  • 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.
