Altec Lansing inMotion IM600 iPod Portable Audio System - IM600USB

When Altec Lansing introduced the original inMotion, it set new standards for sound and size and let a whole lot of music out of the iPod. Now Altec Lansing raises the bar again with an innovative and performance-leading new model. The Altec Lansing iM600 sound system offers stereo sound from dual 2-inch neodymium drivers optimized for high-frequency extension (better highs, in other words). It offers more power and output than any other system in its class and, what’s more, it features another Altec Lansing engineering innovation called the Stereo Field Expander: SFX for short. SFX makes the speakers sound further apart than they really are, giving the user a heightened stereo effect.

The iM600 also features a stereo FM radio and can double as a clock radio when plugged in to an electrical outlet (AC adapter included). It includes rechargeable Li-ion batteries and a wireless remote. And it syncs and charges all dockable iPod models.

Whether on the go or on your desk or tabletop, the iM600 resets the expectations for features and performance in a sound solution for the iPod.

Features:

  • Rechargeable Li-ion battery: Listen to over 7 hours of continuous play (or use the included AC adapter)
  • Full-function remote
  • Alarm clock: The iM600 is fully compatible with iPod models that have the alarm clock and sleep timer features.
  • FM radio: With convenient remote controls and station presets, LCD display, and telescopic antenna.
  • Superior bass enhancement technology: Quality bass without a subwoofer.
  • SFX Stereo Field Expander: inMotion’s proprietary signal processing widens the stereophonic image to dramatically expand the audio soundstage.
  • Compact design: Folds to close at 11“ wide, 1.7“ deep, and 6“ high (283 mm x 43 mm x 152 mm) for convenient mobility.
  • Input jack: For second device connection, including CD, DVD, and MP3 players.

Compatibility:

  • iPod Touch (1st & 2nd gen)
  • iPod Classic
  • iPod with Video
  • iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th gen)
  • iPod with Color Display
  • iPod mini
  • iPod with Click Wheel

Approximate Dimensions:

  • Width: 11"
  • Depth: 1.7"
  • Height: 6"

    Comments about Altec Lansing inMotion iPod Portable Audio System:

    I have been enjoying my iM600 for nearly two years. It has been great for my intended use. I use it for FM and iPod listening both at home and in diverse work locations. Love the way if folds up flat for an easy fit into a brief case or back pack. Love the long battery playing time. Of course it doesn't have the base of a hight-end audio system. But the sound is very good and clear ... and it can easily fill conference rooms. Without hesitation, I can happily recommend it. I feel it is brilliantly designed and a great value.

      Easy setup. Good sound . Don't think it's on par with a Bose unit but it's a fraction of the price. Would like to see a case included. Overall quite pleased.

      Comments about Altec Lansing inMotion iPod Portable Audio System:

      This is a great value in an iPod accessory. No question that it does not quite have the overall sound quality of the larger and more expensive units, such as the $300 (overpriced) Bose system. But it has some advantages even over that system, particularly the fact that it will run on batteries for many hours. Highly portable. Does not have great bass, and you will have to set your iPod to bass enhancement in its internal equalization options (under the playback menu). This is a bit of a chore, if you have to switch back and forth between this system and one that does not require equalization (such as a good stereo system). However for the money this is clearly a great value. The remote control allows you to go forward and backwards within an iPod menu of songs. Their proprietary ESS signal processing algorithm (ostensibly to give enhanced stereo separation in a small speaker system) introduces some tonal abnormalities and for this reason I believe is useless. Highly Recommended Overall, despite its obvious low-end deficiencies and the ESS issue. However, one cannot expect great low end from such a small system.

        Comments about Altec Lansing inMotion iPod Portable Audio System:

        The only problem with it is that it does not come with a case and does not protect well when traveling. To solve the problem, I bought a cover from bestbuy for a portable cd player. The speakers fit perfectly inside and now it is so easy to travel with and it always protected.

            It delivers crisp clear sound, at a respectable volume, but its portability falls a little short. You get the impression that the battery pac was an after thought.

              I listen to books on tape/cd. I can easily attach my personal cd player or tape player to listen to books anywhere in the house. My laptop hooks up so I can livestream without having to download a podcast. I got it to play Xmas music in the dining room without having to add additional speakers. I'll be getting another for my husbands home office.

                I am really impressed with the sound quality from such a small, attractive package. Easy to set up and operate and the ability to move wherever you need your music makes the iM600 a great choice.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I checked all over the web, and Abt had the best price. Their website showed it was in stock, so I called their Customer Service toll-free number to verify. The very helpful representative checked stock and said they could have it shipped the next day. I got an email verification that it had been ordered, then the UPS tracking number the next day with the expected delivery date. It arrived on the date they promised. I was really impressed with Abt's customer service.
