IMW725 spec for spec the one of the best speakkers on the market
2 April 2014
Summary: This is my second Altec Lansing IMW725 (1st one I damaged by accident). Excellent purchase, nice rich sound and has a transmitter so you can connect to your laptop utilizing your choice of a music player to play your music. You can spend more money on the competitors, but I don't think any of them allow you to stream from your laptop. Except for SONOS and of course you know you will pay a nice penny for the unit.
Summary: Had this for a year now, fantastic speaker. Bought for my wife who thought she'd never use it, but we use it several times a week! we take it on the boat, to the beach, on our patio. Sound, to me, is better than the Bose unit costing 2x.
Pros: Easy to pair, sounds great, much less expensive than other comparable bluetooth speakers.
Cons: LED's on top of unit aren't very helpful...bluetooth connection should glow blue, Can't really tell if you're connected without checking connected device.
If you stream from apple or android devices it's great. Good value.

Summary: Sound is good considering it's size. The USB PC adapter takes a while to pair to the speakers-too long for my taste. My Ipad pairs within a few seconds. Range is good 100-150 ft. It will cutoff in 5- 10 minutes if no audio is detected.
Many have tried but few succeed. This is a winner!

Summary: I've owned (or currently own) Logitech, Creative ZiiSound DX3, two Bose SoundDock units, Sony, Philips and iHome models. But my favorite until now is my Altec Lansing model 725. It is half the price of many others AND has rechargeable battery, streaming from iPhone or computer via Bluetooth OR included dongle, nice little easy-to-use remote that stows in back, and looks quite modern.
Pros: VERY good sound; easy to set up & operate; rechargeable battery; stylish design; remote is intuitive & stows in back; best bass & treble clarity in its class, BY FAR; solid & well-built; streams from ANY device, not only Apple; built-in ca
Cons: can't think of any, except "clicking" sound when you use your iPhone to change functions or to take a call.
Great sounding device that & compatible lot of products

Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend for Christmas because she has a Droid and isn't sure if she'll change to an iPhone or not. Well, this device lets you stream ANYTHING that has bluetooth or USB wireless (i.e., a computer).
Pros: Contrary to the editorial review, it has GREAT sound, esp for it's size, Compatibility with whatever, Bluetooth + Wireless, Battery backup, Remote - esp when using it for PC
Cons: Pricey - I think $120 is about right., Doesn't charge (but that's kind of the point by not having a cradle).
Summary: har inte en själv men lyssnat många gånger nu hos min kompis. Blir lite en sidotest detta men jag kan gott rekommendera denna produkt. Låter bra, vi brukar ha denna på som bättre ljud än tv när vi tittar på film via datorn. Blåtandsljudet är bra, enkel att använda och så följer det med en usb blåtandsadapter till datorn som gör att man kan skicka ljudet ut direkt. Har man lyckan att ha en till docka så kan man köra med båda samtidigt via datorn då blir det bra kräm.
