The Altec Lansing MIX Digital Boombox Speaker System was developed for the "DJ lifestyle" -- for those people who know music and like to pick the play list to liven their scene.

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 ours 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.

The MIX is covered by a one-year limited warranty.

What's in the Box
MIX stereo speaker system, remote control, AC power adapter, two (2) 3.5mm connection cables, Apple universal well inserts, and user's guide.

I own the Altec Lansing T612 Digital Speaker for iPod and iPhone (Black) and I was very surprised at how much better the iMT800 sounds. I will admit that for the price difference you should be able to expect better sound...and you can. The iMT 800 sounds very good - about on the same level as a nice rack stereo system. The high notes are crisp and there is strong continuity all the way down to bass. While the bass is not overly deep (effective to 50-60Hz would be my guess) it is more than adequate - the iMT800 does not sound punchy at all - instead the entire frequency response range is nice and smooth. I was very impressed.

Other Features

- Comes with 5 different adapters to ensure that any model of iPod will work. In my video review I show an iPhone (2nd G), and iPod Touch (2nd G) and an older Video iPod and they all fit nicely onto the iPod Dock.

- As you would expect the iPod dock will charge your iPod.

- One very nice feature is that when the iMT800 is used with an iPhone it will automatically silence the music when you receive a call - in fact, the ring tone is played at full volume over the Boom Box speakers! (Shown in the video)

- Decent remote - it would be a bit nicer with digital display - but it probably isn't worth the extra $$$.

- While it is not rechargeable you can use the iMT800 with D batteries - which makes it perfect for taking to the beach,park, or wherever.

- Plenty of volume to fill large areas

- It comes equipped with a FM radio and the ability to program in four presets (I will admit that 4 presets is a bit meager).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you check some of my other reviews you can see that I already had a small Memorex nightstand size dock for my Ipod. It is kind of anemic and the remote works only up to about 5 ft away. It certainly does not have what I would call a room filling sound.

Hence this "Mix" boom box. I guess at some point the boom box was left out of the name, but some of that name still applies. When I first set up the unit with my Touch and played a couple of tracks, my jaw dropped. It was amazing how so much sound could come out of this little (ok, no so little) box. It definitively has that WOW factor. The spatial imaging is nothing short of incredible, and the speakers, mids and tweeters are only 11" apart.

After a couple of minutes though I was scrambling to find out where the tone control and the equalizer is (the equalizer is hidden behind a couple of keystrokes). I turned the bass down a notch, then another notch, and another, and another, and another, and another. I am not being redundant here. To get some semblance of balanced tone, I am now at a -6 bass setting. And still if I place the box in a room corner the bass get to bee too much. Of course the beauty is that it is much easier to turn it down than to bring it up with other units.

The MIX has received some editors choices out there already and for most part deservedly so. Comparisons were Boston Acoustics, Bose, Ihome and Klipsh. I will offer some more comments and try hard not to repeat what you can read in the product description above:

The custom sign on message requires 3 keys to be pressed simultaneously, and you have to do this while the unit is starting up (NOT mentioned in the manual, I though mine was an earlier version).

The remote body is plastic, but the clip is metal.

While this radio will not be confused with boom boxes of the 70's and 80's, I have to admit it's bringing back some memories of the large cassette boom boxes I had way back then. The iMT800 isn't quite as square, large, or heavy as those monsters, but it delivers big sound, and does have a little bit on an "old school" feel to it. In the box, you get the radio, remote, various adapters for different iPod models, 2 auxiliary cables for generic MP3 players, power cable and manual. The radio can also be run on 8 D-Cell batteries (not included). Getting the radio up and playing was simple, and didn't require any reading. If you have an iPod "Classic", no adapter is needed. After connecting my iPod, I tailored the sound to my liking with the 7-band graphic equalizer. You can adjust the sound several different ways. Basic Bass and Treble. 4 Pre-set equalizer settings. Or, manually adjusting the 7-band equalizer. I chose to manually set it, which did require reading the directions to figure it out. It requires a couple of extra steps. Once set to my tastes, I really wasn't expecting the iMT800 to sound as good as it does. It really rivals a much larger, more powerful system. It has full, deep bass thanks to the 5.25-inch side-firing subwoofers, and excellent mid-range and highs. It can really be cranked loud without distortion, if so desired. The small remote offers control of the radio and your iPod. It does the job, and stores away nicely on top of the radio. You can also connect up to 2 more MP3 players through auxiliary inputs. The radio has a 2 line digital display that gives you song and source information while your music is playing. In FM mode, it tells the station, the station information if any, and signal strength. The radio does not have AM mode, or a sleep/auto-off option.Read more ›
