Product Description

Amazon.com

Amazon.com Product Description--Posted October 14, 2008 With its well-regarded inMotion system, Altec Lansing has raised the bar again with the iM600. Featuring a myriad of new technologies, the iM600 offers big, crystal-clear sound, and it folds up compactly for easy portability.

The Altec Lansing inMotion iM600:
  • offers incredible musicality and clarity with deep bass;
  • folds up compactly to offer great portability;
  • provides a dock for your iPod, charging it while playing music; and
  • features a built-in FM tuner.


With Expanded Sound Stage technology, the speakers sound further apart than they really are for a bigger soundstage. View larger. View Remote.
Superior Sound in a Small Package
Employing dual two-inch neodymium drivers that are optimized for high-frequency sound, the iM600 offers unmatched musicality and clarity. Despite its compact size, the bass is punchy and has good extension, and with Altec Lansing's Expanded Sound Stage (ESS) technology, the speakers will sound further apart than they actually are, for a greater stereophonic image.

Elegant Design Matches the iPod
The iM600 sports a distinctive thin and elegant glossy-black look. A spring-loaded button deploys the speaker's stand and reveals the iPod dock, power button, and volume controls.

Your iPod perches front and center, resting at an angle to display the current track information and album art while recharging. If your iPod model has the alarm clock and sleep timer features, they will work seamlessly with the iM600.

Various docking adapters are included, making the iM600 compatible with most iPods. Also, an auxiliary input lets you connect any CD, DVD, or MP3 player using a stereo mini-plug.

Built-in FM Tuner
If you get bored with the songs on your iPod, the iM600 has a built-in FM tuner, letting you listen to your favorite music and talk radio. Near the top of the unit is an LCD that displays the current FM frequency; buttons on top provide tuning controls. The tuner also features a memory for four presets and a telescoping antenna for better reception.

Change the Music from Across the Room
A small remote control is included, letting you change the musical selection from across the room. A storage slot built into the system itself makes it easy to store the remote, preventing you from losing it behind couch cushions and other inconvenient places.

Take Your Music To-Go
With a compact size that folds closed to a mere 11 x 1.7 x 6 inches (W x D x H), and weighing only 2.1 pounds, the iM600 is easy to take with you to the beach, on vacation, or wherever you else you're going. The built-in rechargeable Li-Ion battery lets you listen to more than 7 hours of continuous play. An AC adapter is included for connected listening and recharging the battery.

The Altec Lansing iM600 is backed by a one-year warranty.

What's in the Box
iM600 speaker system, wireless remote, iPod docking adapters, power supply, user's guide and quick connect instructions.



The iM600 will provide enough big sound to keep your party rocking.

Three Way Comparison, Bose SoundDock vs. Griffin Amplifi vs. Altec Lansing IM600:
Design and Features:
Bose Sound Dock: Cabinet made of plastic. Appears to have two 2.5" acoustic suspension (enclosed) drivers under a metallic grill, with a whole bunch of added physical structures that look to be waveguides and / or signal processors. Bose keeps details on this pretty much obscured, but wattage estimates I've seen on the net put power output at roughly 50-60 watts and based on my own comparative experience, I would agree. Some commentators think the unit has four drivers rather than two, but I see only two beneath the grill and I am not going to disassemble the unit. Some Bose haters on the net claim frequency response on the SD is capped at a mere 10,000 kHz, which I personally doubt, as treble rich music I've played on this sounds fine, and no reliable net source makes this claim. Ipod docks in a front-mounted bay. My 5.5 G 30 GB feels rather loosely supported, but no major issues.
No line-in or out. Indeed, no console controls at all except a volume up and volume down button. Simple remote, though very reliable and with good range. The power wart is bizarrely large and bulky, plus is also in two sections, making it seem like you're going to be powering up a railgun or supercollider rather than a relatively low powered music player. The design is sturdy and attractive overall, but the lack of any special features whatsoever is dismaying, perhaps symptomatic of Bose's condescending "electronics for idiots" philosophy. Charges Ipod as long as it is docked, when playing or when off.
Griffin Amplifi: Cabinet made of wood, looks like small shoebox. Has two 2.75" drivers front mounted and a bottom mounted 5" woofer with a bass port.

Like others, I looked at many models. I bought this unit along with IPod for traveling to my weekend cabin, hoping to replace the bulkiness of my SONY CD player and three cases of disks. It is exceptionally portable, plugs into wall or goes outside on battery, has FM receiver so my wife can listen to college football on weekends, and we attach it to her computer/DVD to watch movies in the evening. The sound quality is excellent, filling the living/dining area for movies or music. Definitely competes with the old bulky system with no compromise. Plus Amazon price was incredible. For our needs, this could not be better. I am planning to take it on vacation with us this winter.

I tested about 8 different brands and models of these type of systems in a store at high volume. For its size and price, this one got the loudest before distorting, with excellent sound balance. The FM receiver is handy. It is very lightweight and folds up into a convenient carrying shape. Highly recommended.

I'm amazed at some of the technically sophisticated reviews on this product. I truly congratulate those with the knowledge, skills (and ears) to review on such a level. My review is geared to those looking for a quick and dirty review.

This device is awesome. It is quite portable. It plays loud without losing quality. It has an FM radio (I guess that's in case I run through all 6800 songs on my ipod). It has a video out jack, which I have used with great success. It's very easy to figure out how to use. It seems to hold a charge for a long time...although I've never tested it to see how long it takes to run out, I have used it for many hours without needing to charge. It also charges your ipod when plugged in, which is nice. It's pretty cool looking too. Not quite so bulky as some of the ipod speakers I've seen.

Have I mentioned that it's loud? For me, my first test with a product like this is to see if I can crank it pretty loud and not have it sound tinny or static-ey. I'm hugely impressed. That's where the money is, I think. Yes, you can buy a cheaper system...but try "turning it to 11."

Downsides: tiny little remote that would be really easy to lose. You'd still be able to use all the features...but you'd be bummed to lose the remote anyway. (Although I've managed to hang on to it so far!). Also, to use the charger, you have to unfold the system and stand it up. It takes up a little less space when the base is folded up, and it would be nice to be able to charge it in that position. But these are pretty minor quibbles indeed.

If you enjoy your ipod, and need to crank it up...this is a very nice system. I've really gotten my monies worth.

This iPod system is very powerful. Turn it up to max volume & you'll hear no hint of distortion. And at the size of a small book, it's very convenient for traveling (especially when battery powered) or for tabletops. It also includes an FM tuner which most other systems lack.

This system is much better than the comparable Logitech system at the same price - better sound, LED layout, FM radio. And I think iM600 sounds better than the $250 Bose system. Great value

The following is the result of more research than a sane person would do for a trivial purchase.
IPod dock speaker products range in price from $40 to $300 with the Bose at the top end of scale. Starting from the top, I would not pay $300 for a small single purpose device just to play the music from my IPOD. If price is no object the Wave Radio with using the aux input jack makes more sense. It is almost as portable, superb sound, great radio, etc.. you get the point. What the Bose does have going for it is great sound, AC/DC capability, the Bose remote which is RF rather than IR so it has a long range. It is a premium product at a premium price.

Deciding that price was a consideration I then made a list of almost every product that is on the market, comparing features, form factor, sound and reliability reviews. I then went and visited a variety of retailers to look at the products, hands on.

On the lower end of the price scale is IHOME, Coby, Memorex and the list of usual suspects. All played the tunes off the IPOD, the IHOMES attractive many models double as a clock radio perfect for your night stand so a multi purpose device. The compromise on these is music punch. Think of these as the ear buds that come with your Ipod, they do the job but just not at the same quality as the slightly more expensive models out there.

The middle of the pack is quite large and all do a very good to excellent job of pumping out your tunes. JBL,Kiplich, Altec Lancing, Griffin ICurve, Phillips, Apple Sound Box, InMotion and Sony. IMO all are very good products at prices that do not scream, I paid how much for this to do what?
