Altec Lansing Octiv Duo M202


Charges and plays music for two docked iPods. Free app mixes music from both iPods and lets you choose play time percentages for each. Simple design with a handy cubbyhole for the remote control. Full iPod navigation on remote.

Audio quality isn't bad, but distorts at high volumes. Music Mix app won't work for iPod nano or other non-iOS iPods.

It may not be an audiophile masterpiece, but the Octiv Mini M202, with its dual docks and free mixing app, may just inspire harmony in your multiple-iPod home.

Altec Lansing M202 Octiv Duo - Mix n Match


JBL has been coming out with quite a few iPod docks as we saw recently with the Onbeat and On Time 5V. We weren't very impressed with them and seeing Altec Lansing's M202, there might be some more options for users. The Octiv Duo aka M202 claims to...

Consumer review by: John (

No 4S dock converter


There is no docking "dish" for the iPhone 4s. The custom-fit dishes for the 3 and Nano come with it, but for the 4 or 4s apparently we are supposed to just use the dish-less connector, and balance it (physically unsupported) on the male plug. Other...
