Altec Lansing has introduced the
iM600, a new portable speaker system designed to work with the iPod. It’s coming this month for $149.95.
The iM600 comes with a built-in FM receiver, remote control and rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. It outputs 16 watts of power, and includes the “SFX Sound Field Expander,” which widens the sound field. The speakers are powered by custom-built, two-inch neodymium drivers. The iM600 also features auxiliary input, sub out, composite video out and mini USB connections.
A wireless remote control provides iPod song navigation and speaker controls, and lets you scan FM stations and four FM presets. The iPod rests in an iPod docking station that flips open or closed for storage in your backpack or travel bag. The iM600 also comes with an AC power supply.
Altec Lansing has also announced two other inMotion iPod products launching this spring: the $399.95 M812, a wireless home audio system that comes equipped with two four-inch woofers and 1-inch tweeters, FM tuner and support for three additional speakers; and the iMV712, a $349.95 interface for the video iPod that features an 8.5-inch LCD panel, neodymium speakers and built-in subwoofer.
