Air ways

Altec Lansing also tells me that the USB dongle can be linked to two inMotion Air units, giving you the possibility of a multi-room speaker system for far less than rivals such as the Sonos ZonePlayer. Alas, I wasn't sent a second unit so that I could try this out.

Pleasing on the eye and on the ear

Verdict

If you’re specifically looking for an iPod dock then the inMotion Air is clearly the wrong choice. However, its semi-portable design and emphasis on wireless audio makes it a really versatile speaker system for use at home. Its audio quality using basic Bluetooth is very good, and also provides Apt-X future-proofing, while its additional USB wireless option means you can use it with a computer and even add in a second speaker unit in another room. I used it at a dinner party last weekend and it worked a treat. ®
