Altec debuts iMmini

Altec Lansing today debuted its portable audio system designed specifically for users of the iPod mini: the new offers digital amplification, high-quality neodymium micro drivers, and MaxxBass technology--all within a form factor that Altec says is 41% smaller than Altec Lansing's flagship product, inMotion. It features an easily accessible front-mounted iPod docking bay for battery charging, control over data transfer and synchronization, and support for its auto-shutoff and alarm clock features. It will be available later this summer for $130.

The complete speaker system is 7" x 4.4" x 1" with two 1" and two 18mm neodymium micro drivers encased behind perforated aluminum grilles as well as an onboard 4-watt Class D digital amplifier that "pumps out rich, full sound with no outside power source needed -- in fact, four AA batteries can power the inMotion mini for more than 24 hours."

The system includes top-mounted controls on the iMmini for easy access to on/off and volume as well as auxillary input for connecting the speaker system to other devices as well: "Although it is designed for the iPod mini, Altec Lansing's iMmini lets users of any portable audio device put away their headphones and let everyone hear the music. Music enthusiasts can listen to a CD player, MP3 player, laptop, or other product via the auxiliary input while simultaneously inserting their iPod mini into the docking bay for synchronization or recharging."

Altec Lansing's inMotion iMmini ships with an 3.5mm auxiliary input cable that plugs into multiple audio devices for playback. The product also ships with an AC power supply, and soon will be updated with a universal power supply and plug set for international use, according to the company.
