Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 review: Altec Lansing Mix iMT800


Altec Lansing Mix iMT800

Distinct, retrolicious design; excellent sound for a system this size; FM radio; two auxiliary inputs placed on the top of the unit for easy access; portable (powered by 8 D batteries); slot for storing remote, which also clips onto a belt.

Pricey; no AM radio; would be nice if the system included a rechargeable battery; no video outputs.

The design of Altec Lansing's Mix iMT800 may not appeal to everyone, but its winning combination of good performance, lots of oomph, and portability makes it one of the best iPod speaker options out there.

Altec Lansing Mix iMT800


D-size batteries when it's not plugged in. With a built-in subwoofer and user-adjustable EQ, this big boombox is a likely candidate for high-volume distortion, yet, even when blasting tunes at dance-party listening levels, the bass remains clean and...

Tremendous power. Built-in subwoofer. Doesn't distort at high volumes. User-adjustable EQ. Two aux inputs and cables for additional MP3 players are included. Works with iPhone. FM tuner

Not nearly as portable as advertised. Remote lacks full iPod menu navigation. No video out

With multiple inputs, the Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 iPod dock lets you play DJ by connecting up to three MP3 players. It also delivers powerful, user-adjustable audio without distortioneven at high volumes, which is more than enough to make up for its...

Best portable iPod speakers


Reviewers say the Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 is one of the best-sounding portable iPod speakers on the market. Not all users are fans of the retro boom box design -- one reviewer calls it "aesthetically depressing" -- but nearly all experts agree that...

Excellent sound quality, works with iPhone-certified, uses AC power or batteries, two auxiliary in ports

Design may not appeal to everyone, expensive, hefty for a portable speaker

Review: Altec Lansing MIX iMT800 Dock for iPhone and iPod


I grew up in the 80′s.  The 80′s was the decade of big hair, hair bands, break dancing and boom boxes.  Never have I seen a dock for iPhone and iPod that brings back memories from the 80′s like the Altec Lansing MIX iMT800. The MIX has big boom box...

Altec Lansing iMT800 MIX BoomBox Review


Ahhhh, the 80′s….back when big hair, bell bottoms, disco, and soul-pounding boomboxes were all the rage. Thankfully most of the trends of the 1980′s have fallen to the passage of time. Over the past two decades since, how we listen to and travel with...

Well made, quality construction ; Excellent sound experience ; Many input options ; Built-in iPod/iPhone dock ; Solid aluminum carrying handles ; 7-band equalizer ; Two year warranty (w/registration)

No stereo bluetooth wireless streaming

The Altec Lansing Mix iMT800


Back in the really old days, boomboxes were a mainstay of music culture. Altec Lansing's new Mix iMT800 aims to mix and match the best of the old and new. It still has the same old looks but with a new gadget - an iPod or iPhone dock. The Mix also...

Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 boombox


The Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 iPod dock looks and sounds impressive.

Powerful, portable, impressive looks, cool remote control

Not especially portable, no internal lithium-ion battery, expensive

Altec Lansing's Mix iMT800 is a mix of old and new — it's an iPod dock and FM radio with all the charm, style and raw power of an 80s boombox. Its sound quality rivals other high-end iPod docks we've heard, and the portability of the Altec Lansing Mix...

Altec Lansing MIX iMT800 review


The iPod speaker dock with an 80s boombox twist

A big, full sound ; iPhone compatible ; Lots of bass

No AM radio

A great take on the iPod speaker dock, but perhaps a little bass-heavy

Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 review


The Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 iPod dock looks and sounds impressive. Looking like an 80s ghetto blaster cross-bred with a Cylon, it packs some serious audio power in the form of dedicated tweeters, mid-range drivers and a side-mounted subwoofer. It...

Priced at £269, this is more of an investment than an impulse purchase. Maybe we’ve been won over by its charm, but we like to think that the Altec Lansing Mix iMT800 will stand the test of time — it’s well designed, well constructed and sounds great.
