iM600 Ups the Ante on iPod Speaker Systems
March 15, 2007
Altec Lansing is raising the bar – and the antenna – with its latest creation in its line of iPod speaker systems. The iM600 is purposefully engineered to deliver the highest audio performance and offer the broadest feature set in its portable speaker class.
It has a full complement of features that comparably priced systems don’t currently offer: built-in FM receiver, remote control, sound field expansion and an on-board rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that offers over seven hours of battery life. And with 16 watts of power, the iM600 throws out some serious sound with the crystal-clear quality that Altec fans have come to expect.
This impressive package of features and sound is ultra portable, folding to the flat size of a small book. When fully opened, the iM600’s slight footprint is the perfect audio solution in the home or office where space is at a premium.
SFX Sound Field Expander technology enhances the stereo listening experience by widening the sound field at the touch of a button. Custom-built, dual 2-inch neodymium drivers outperform rival products with smooth lows and razor-sharp highs.
Every inch of the iM600 is designed to offer complete flexibility and control. Convenient fingertip controls compliment the iPod docking station that flips open and closed for easy storage in your backpack or travel bag. The wireless remote features full iPod song navigation and speaker controls as well as FM scan and four FM presets. If you prefer to keep your iM600 on your desk or nightstand, you can charge your iM600 battery with the AC power supply and have it double as an alarm clock when used with an iPod.
While made for iPod, the iM600 is compatible with any portable audio device via the 3.5mm auxiliary input jack. The inMotion iM600 will be available March 2007 for $149.95 (MSRP) in consumer electronic stores and online at www.alteclansing.com.
