Another month, another two Things That Make Sound from Altec Lansing: one for iPods; one for PCs. Meet the iMT800, a fairly literal, iPod-infused take on a 1980s-style boombox, and the MX6021, a speaker set apparently made from motorcycle parts.
Both products are attractive in their own way, but stumble over the same minor detail. The MX6021, picture above, is another one of those pretty "Expressionist" speakers Altec keeps making, and this time they've opted for some kind of auto part/heavy machinery/1990s space movie aesthetic. As far as sound goes, it's a fairly standard 2.1 system, though Altec stresses its gen-u-ine 200W rating.
