From the Manufacturer
Universal dock is compatible with both iPhone and iPod, and recharges while it plays your tunes. View larger.
Vibrant LED for adjusting EQ and displaying track information. View larger.
Of course, the combo of "DJ" and "party" requires loud and booming sound, and the MIX will deliver. Loaded with a 5.25-inch side-firing subwoofer and 5.25-inch tuned passive radiator, the MIX pumps out big natural bass, further enhanced with XdB technology for extra heavy punch. The sound is complete with a pair of 3-inch full-range drivers, a pair of 1-inch silk dome tweeters in a horn-loaded configuration. Beyond looking cool, the front-facing horns are engineered to disperse the high frequencies -- which are otherwise highly directional -- for great sound throughout the entire room. Quite frankly, the MIX gets loud.
The MIX also features a brightly lit LCD display that tells you the track, artist and album being played from your docked iPhone or iPod. Also, FM station data is displayed when the radio is playing.
Fierce bass to keep the party thumping. View larger.
The MIX has various EQ options that allow the user to tailor or personalize the sound. The simplest and most familiar is an adjustment of separate bass and treble controls. For more technical tuning, a digital 7-band graphic equalizer allows custom cutting or boosting of specific frequencies. Or, there are four EQ presets where just a touch of a button will tune the EQ for specific music genres, either for rock, pop, hip-hop or simply flat.
FM Radio Tuner
For entertainment beyond the iPhone and iPod, the MIX has an FM radio tuner with four station pre-sets.
Moves with the Party
True to its retro boombox roots, the MIX runs on AC or battery power. You'll always know how much battery life you have because the MIX will tell you on its display. You can expect up to 30 hours of play with eight "D" sized batteries. And, the MIX has nicely weight-balanced handles so you can take it on the road or around the house just as easily.
Thoughtfully Designed Remote Control
Between parties the remote control stows away in its own cubby so it can always be easily found. At party time, use the clip-on carabineer so the remote is always handy to command the jams. The remote allows you to toggle between all of your music sources, including the FM radio and lets you control the on/off power, volume minus, volume plus, track back, track forward, EQ, play/pause, and the four preset buttons. The four preset buttons are used for both the FM preset mode and the EQ preset mode.
Compatible with iPhone and iPod
The MIX is compatible with a wide range of iPod players, including iPod touch (1G through 4G), iPod classic, iPod with video, iPod nano (1G through 6G ), and iPhone (1G through 4G).
The MIX is covered by a one-year limited warranty.

I purchased the iMT800 stereo, which is the previous model, about one year and four months ago now. The unit is nice and there are no issues in the aesthetics or sound quality, aside from the the midtones which are a bit lacking. But I would generally echo what others have said about the stereo sounding nice. The problem came when the stereo stopped working while on A/C power. My problem came somewhere right before the end of the warranty period which is one year. The day I noticed it, we were out in the yard having a barbecue, and I figured maybe there was something wrong with the extension cord. So, I put some batteries in and simply forgot about it. My fault. Three months went by while we used the unit rarely with the batteries still in.
After the batteries died, I plugged it in and realized that it would not work on A/C power at all. I checked my receipt and observed that I was now past the warranty date. I began doing some research online in order to find a repair, and soon found out that many people are having this specific issue with the stereo. A brief search throughout these reviews will reveal that there is some sort of design flaw with the power dongle and how it attaches to the unit's motherboard, as many others have had this problem. You can find some similar experiences others have had with this product.
I emailed Altec Lansing and explained the situation to them hoping that I could have the stereo fixed. Basically, what transpired after was comical.Read more ›
1. They are not in stereo (one speaker or perhaps one small woofer and tweeter)
2. The remote is limited to either the speaker volume, or to the signal's source (not both)
3. They are only portable within range of their transmitter
4. C'mon, where's the power? The majority of other solutions range from 5-20 watts rms. Why not just pass out headphones to everybody?
Altec's Digital Boombox solved all of these problems for me. It's in stereo, the remote controls the volume, tracks on your iPhone, etc. AND it has a great range. Because this stereo syncs to an iPhone and plays anything with an audio aux jack it can be brought/moved anywhere (I mostly use it with Pandora and my Smartphone). Most importantly, the sound is quite impressive. I was skeptical about other peoples' reviews as they sounded fairly exaggerated. Needless to say I don't think that anymore. The highs are clean and crisp, the bass is very strong, and there's enough power to fill any backyard or open space. Altec truly created a highly diverse piece of machinery with this product and I'd recommend it to anyone.
I had 3 main requirements that the ipod speaker dock I would want needed to fill (listed in order of importance):
1. IT HAS TO HAVE GREAT SOUND! I'm not really interested in the dock doing a whole lot more than that. I don't care about it having an alarm clock or bluetooth or a bunch of other bells and whistles like that. To this end, I wanted a dock that had independent drivers (speakers) for the lows, mids & highs (i.e. 3 sets of speakers).
2. It had to be under $300. I'm not rich, I'm on a budget. If money were no object; I know there are more expensive, better sounding speakers out there like the GenevaSound All-in-One Stereo for CD, iPod, iPhone, Radio, Line-in (Large-Black), but I don't have that kind of scratch to spend.
3. It has to have some kind of battery option for portability. I wish AL would have put a rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack in this new model, but they just stuck with the 8 D cells.Read more ›
