Altec Lansing InAir 5000

 

The Altec Lansing InAir 5000 produces well-balanced sound in an attractive package that will blow the roof off your room...if you can afford it.

The stylish Altec Lansing InAir 5000 streams immersive, consistent sound from iOS devices and iTunes over Apple's wireless AirPlay signal.

If you aren't terribly picky about sound quality, for half the cash you can get a Bluetooth speaker with nearly the same aural reach.

Axe-Shaped Speaker Sounds Decent, But Lacks Killer Chops

 

Mostly good sound is marred by connectivity problems, making an otherwise solid product a disappointment.

Altec Lansing inAir 5000 Wireless AirPlay Speaker

 

Extremely powerful speaker system. Delivers deep bass without distortion. Simple, app-driven set up.

AirPlay drops signal. Uses signal processessing at top volumes to prevent bass distortion—not for audiophiles.

Altec Lansing's inAir 5000 Wireless AirPlay Speaker offers powerful, distortion-free audio performance, but AirPlay itself still has some issues to work out.

If you’re going to spend over £400 on a set of AirPlay speakers then the sound needs to justify the cash. However, the inAir 5000 lacks the finesse you’d expect in this price range and struggles to compete with rivals such as the B&W Zeppelin Air.

Altec Lansing's first-ever Airplay dock gets its initial airing at IFA 2011. We take a closer look, and listen.

The last design hurrah is the LED on the bottom of the device. It’ll apparently act as part of the interface, telling you when the device is seeking a connection and so on, while also acting as a nice bit ‘o visual bling. And no, it doesn’t look...

The inAir promises much but delivers little

Solid build; impressive finish; easy to setup

Overblown bass; sharp edges on remote
