When it comes to picking a speaker dock, iPod owners have no trouble finding a device for every taste and budget, but finding one for its larger cousin the iPad can still be a challenge. Altec Lansing's Octiv Stage is a speaker dock for your iPad...

Stylish design ; Sturdy build quality ; Decent sound relative to size ; Remote control

Expensive ; Limited controls on remote ; Bass distorts at high volumes

Even with a steep price tag, the Octive Stage MP450 by Altec Lansing stands out against the limited selection of iPad docks available on the market.

The Octiv Stage MP450 has a small footprint for an iPad dock, but it still manages to produce decent sound.

The Octiv Stage MP450 offers rotation and angling movement for docked iPads

The stand that holds the iPad can also be angled back and forth in order to achieve a better viewing angle and a rubber adaptor is included in the box to better fit the iPad 2. Auxiliary input is also available via mini-jack connection to the rear of...

Beautiful and sounds great

 

I've read reviews that say it breaks easily. Well if it handled roughly, perhaps, BUT PEOPLE, this is an electronic device...handle with CARE!!!

The sound quality is excellent. Easy to set up and begin using, too. The reviewer that said it doesn't work with IOS 5.. it must be 'operator trouble' because I am using it JUST fine with my Ipad 2 WITH IOS 5. This is greatly reduced in price from when...
