iPod News: Altec Lansing Releases New Portable Speakers
      #34472 - 09/08/09 06:25 PM

Altec Lansing, a division of Plantronics, Inc., today introduced the newest member of its inMotion family, the inMotion(R) Classic (iMT620), which works with iPhones as well as iPods and includes an FM radio tuner. Based on the popular iM600 ? one of the best-selling portable iPod speaker systems ever ? the inMotion Classic offers advances in portability, audio performance and, of course, iPhone compatibility.

Starting with its rechargeable battery, the inMotion Classic is engineered for portability and versatility, so music enthusiasts can groove anywhere without missing a beat. Compact and lightweight, the inMotion Classic folds to the size of a small book. Its clever multi-function handle serves three important roles: swing up for grab-and-go transport, swing back as a kickstand and swing under to stow away and turn off the battery.

With a built-in digital FM radio, the inMotion Classic provides entertainment even when your iPhone or iPod is not handy.

"Works with iPhone" certification means interference-free listening, eliminating the need to switch the iPhone to airplane mode. iPhone and iPod devices are automatically charged when the inMotion Classic is plugged into a power outlet.

The inMotion Classic's advanced remote control features full menu navigation for iPhone and iPod, allowing users to browse artists, songs and playlists directly from the remote. The high-contrast LCD always lets you know the song details from afar.

The inMotion Classic utilizes proprietary Audio Alignment(TM) craftsmanship to deliver a balanced, authentic sound. Expanded Sound Stage technology enhances the stereo listening experience by widening the sound field at the touch of a button. Custom-built, dual three-inch neodymium drivers throw out clear, powerful sound with the quality that Altec Lansing fans have come to expect.
