Made for iPhone/iPod: Altec Lansing Octiv 650

Worthy representative of the middle segment: good design and construction, good sound quality, good iOS app and TV connectivity.

Design, construction

I personally really like the updated design of Altec Lansing devices, there is a commonality in the line, although I cannot but note that there is some similarity with Bose products. Either a lot of gray, or a very simple form, or something else. On the other hand, it's better than what it was before. It is impossible not to note the efforts of the company's designers, for example, Al Octiv 650, when viewed from some angles, seems to be a very small system, although, in fact, when viewed from above, you understand that it is not small at all. The shape is interesting, a triangle on top, a rectangle in front, while everything is harmonious and beautiful. On the bottom of Motorcycle - three massive legs, the appearance is universal and successful , the speaker will easily fit into any interior, whether it is an office space, a living room or a bedroom. Dark gray plastic of good quality, the front speakers are covered with fabric, this is what distinguishes AL from Bose, in the latter case, metal is used. And at the bottom there is a subwoofer, an interesting solution. The dimensions of the device are 328 x 50 x 152 mm, it weighs about three kilograms. On the front panel there is a strip with a small rubber pimp, it prevents the phone or player from being pressed against the fabric.

There is a small cradle on the front, in principle, you can put an iPad here too. This is good, because many iPhone owners keep other devices in their household - I won't say anything to myself, there are iPod Classic, and Touch, and iPad. Given that the speaker can also charge all these gadgets, you get more than just sound.

On the back there is an input for the power supply, a 3.5 mm jack for connecting additional devices, outputs for connecting a component cable - one of the distinguishing features of the Octiv 650 is the ability to connect to a TV. For example, you can insert your iPhone into the cradle, connect the speaker to the TV and start playing.

Management

At the top of the speaker is a row of buttons: power, volume, bass/treble, go to video. Included is a remote control, with its help you can turn off the sound, adjust the sound settings, control playback and activate one of the playback presets. These are Rock, Hip Hop, Pop, Custom and Altec EQ. Accordingly, it is better not to lose the remote control.

On the front there is a light indicator that signals the device is turned on, next to it is a strip of lights that informs you about the sound level and other parameters.

Altec Lansing Music Mood

When you install an iPhone or iPod Touch in a cradle, you are prompted to download a branded application, I would recommend doing this. Let's take a look at the main features of Altec Lansing Music Mood.

  • Player, that is, you can control music without going into the iPod application, it is possible to activate repeat or random play mode. Minus - you need to add tracks to play from the library, although you can add all the songs at once, which will make your life easier.
  • Visualization, done beautifully, it can be clouds, you can choose both video with sound, and just sound. Can help with insomnia
  • Settings are simple, autostart when you insert the device into the cradle, video output settings and the like

There is another application called Alarm Rock, you can also install it, the main plus is the presence of an alarm clock, it also displays a beautiful clock on the screen (you can choose different types of display).

< td>

This speaker does not have a built-in battery, it only works from the power supply. I liked the sound quality, the speaker is bassy, ​​does not wheeze at full volume, and although I cannot say that the emotions are as positive as those from Bose, but in general the AL Octiv 650 is interesting both for an unassuming listener and for those who have experienced hundreds of editor columns. By playing around with the bass settings and EQ presets (on the remote), you can achieve very good results.

Conclusions

In retail, the device costs about six thousand rubles, for the money this is a very good offer, and I strongly recommend the AL Octiv 650 for purchase. It looks good, the design is successful, it is possible to connect to TV, devices are charged when connected, the sound quality is good, “four” with a huge plus. I look forward to getting to know the older AL models, the middle segment is very good, the models are successful.
