Altec Lansing Octiv Stage (MP450)


Compact design. Excellent rotating docking arm allows for vertical, horizontal and even flat viewing

Poor audio performance for the price. Remote control does not navigate the iPad well. Can't use alarm apps—even ones from Altec Lansing

Altec Lansing Octiv Stage MP450


A fairly bare-bones unit with no real bells and whistles, the Octiv Stage MP450 delivers solid audio performance at a realistic price, with a very small footprint to boot.

Minimalist design suits the iPad visually ; Surprisingly good sound from such a small unit ; Achieves the aim of turning the iPad into a little TV

Minimalist not only in design, but in features too

It's not the most feature-rich device of its kind, but its combination of small footprint, big sound and the flexible arm make it a solid buy.
