Booming Stereo Sound
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.

Tailored EQ
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.

What's in the Box

The sound was great!

Fortunately I didn't because I've found that the Altec Lansing iMT810 to be a far better purchase.

The treble is crisp and clear, even with high volumes, the bass and treble lose no sound quality.

First of all I would like to say I was set on buying the beats by dre. Beatbox. Fortunately I didn't because I've found that the Altec Lansing iMT810 to be a far better purchase. I'm not saying the Beatbox is bad, it's just that the Altec Lansing speaker offers so much more. The sound is absolutely amazing. Bass is exactly how it should be, booming but not overpowering. The highs are very crisp and mids are very defined. If any aspect of the sound doesn't seem to please, there are EQ settings with these speakers, allowing you to set a perfect preset for your music. So all in all, sound is not an issue at all. It is quite phenomenal. The included display is also very useful, allowing you to see what is playing. The volume on these speakers can be set pretty high. It is rather ear shattering at max, but I'm one of those paranoid users who think it might blow the speakers. There are also buttons on the speakers themselves that will come in handy including source, EQ, and forward, and repeat. The altec lansing's source buttons allow multiple mp3 or any music device to be connected to it allowing multiple devices to played instead of having to swap devices. Finally, the Altec Lansing offers the option of running off an AC adapter or batteries which is all the options you need. Take it on the go with batteries or have it stationary. So far compared to the Beatbox, the Altec Lansing offer so much more including the display, multiple source options, buttons on the speakers, and options to run off batteries. Also! the Altec Lansing is priced lower than the Beatbox so I wouldn't see much of a reason to go with the Beatbox. Overall, the Altec Lansing is very pleasing. The quality of the speaker is amazing including the remote that it comes with which is made of a very high quality plastic material.Read more ›

Let me begin by saying don't write too many reviews on Amazon; but I was simply amazed by my experience and figured I could do someone else a favor by passing it on.

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.

I spent a lot of time researching ideas for outdoor speakers, wireless music solutions, etc. The shortcomings of most other products are that:
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.

This is a great sounding unit at all volume levels. Solid bass, midrange and trebble right out of the box and you can customize the sound with simple bass, mid, trebble adjustments or get that perfect mix using the 7 band EQ. It may be a little pricey but it's the only unit out there that will handle just about any smart phone/iphone device. It even played nice with my BB and if that's not enough it also has a great sounding FM radio. The remote works very well too. I was able to use all functions from about 20 to 25 feet away.

This is medium sized boombox, not a little shelf unit however, it's not too large either. If you're looking for something for the bedside or small office, then this unit probably is not what you're looking for. However, if you want something for the backyard deck or pool area then you won't be disappointed. It's not a 1000 watt stereo but it does have plenty of power and sound to accomodate the listening needs of most small parties. It would also work well as a livingroom stereo.

I have not tested this unit under battery power so I'm not sure how well it would perform or for how long running on batteries. I would definitely recommend this unit. Altec Lansing designed a great product in the iMT810.
