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.

Surprising sound from little speakers

 

I'm surprised at the quality of sound from these small speakers - it's quite good for their size and price. I use this in the kitchen/dining room, in the bedroom and outside by the pool. It's small, easy to carry from room to room and looks good. Quite...
