Audio gear maker Altec Lansing has unleashed another iPod/iPhone audio solution: the Octiv Mini multifunction audio dock. Designed for iPod and iPhone users, the Octiv Mini is designed to give clear, high-quality sound output in a footprint that’s a fraction of the size of many iPod-compatible speaker solutions—plus iPhone and iPod touch users can leverage Altec Lansing’s Alarm Rock app to use the Octiv Mini as an alarm clock.
“Because the Octiv Mini functions as a dock, a charger and an alarm clock with the included app, it represents an amazing value that will be appreciated by those who will not compromise on sound quality for a smaller footprint,” said Altec Lansing product manager stated Steve Schlangen, in a statement.
The Octiv Mini measures just four inches wide and about five inches deep, so it can be set up on almost any available service. The unit features a single 3-inch driver with Altec Lansing’s Audio Alignment promise that the components and design are balanced for decent sound: the company says it stands up against larger speaker systems. The unit is also shielded from interference from cell phones and other electronics.
The Octiv MIni should arrive at retailers in July for a suggested price of $59.99.
