Altec Lansing has unveiled the next generation of its MIX digital boombox for the iPod and iPhone. The new iMT810 model features updated chrome styling with brushed aluminum accents and grips, along with blue LCD display and promising “thunderous bass” with its huge 5.25” side-firing subwoofer and 5.25” tuned passive radiator pump further enhanced with XdB technology for an “extra heavy punch.”
Altec Lansing MIX BoomBox IMT810 packs specially engineered horn-loaded tweeters and mid-range drivers, and a digital 7-band graphic equalizer with multiple EQ modes. It also has an integrated FM radio tuner and a couple of 3.5mm auxiliary input jacks for hooking up other music devices, in addition to Apple’s iPhone and iPod which also can be charged whenever docked. The system is now iPhone 4 certified and automatically pauses music when a call is received on the docked iPhone.
MIX BoomBox IMT810 can keep the party jumping up to 30 hours with eight D-cell batteries and also comes with a handy carabineer style, clip-on remote control. It is now available for $299.95 MSRP.
Other than the Valve80 tube-based iPod amplifier, Logic3 introduces also the i-Station Rotate iPhone / iPod speaker dock (model: WIP027) that comes with built-in rotating dock mechanism, which allows users to revolve their iPhone / iPod to suit the screen format.
The Logic3 i-Station Rotate features TDMA noise suppression technology, Video Out for iPod and iPhone, 5W + 5W (RMS) Audio output power with power efficient Class D Amplifier, and a 3.5mm Stereo line-in socket.
The i-Station Rotate comes with a remote control with iPod/iPhone menu. It can also charge iPhone and iPod.
The Logic3 i-Station Rotate will be available in January 2009 for $129.99.
