Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air AirPlay speaker

Eight... AirPlay speakers

Product round-up Apple’s AirPlay wireless streaming protocol can be used to play music from an iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, or from iTunes on a Mac or PC, directly to a compatible speaker. AirPlay uses Wi-Fi rather than Bluetooth and so audio is not compressed in order to send it to a speaker. The good news is that some of the biggest names in hi- …

Ten... boomboxes

Product round-up There are some really excellent iOS speaker systems available at the moment, but most of them are designed for a tasteful dinner party with friends rather than a full-on party scene. And, of course, they’re mostly mains-powered and designed for use at home. However, there are a number of boombox systems that can run off …

Altec Lansing iMT630 travel speaker

Altec Lansing iMT630

Accessory of the Week The first set of iPod speakers I ever bought was Altec Lansing’s inMotion iM3, a paperback-sized unit that could nonetheless produce a very respectable sound. My iM3 has been around the world a couple of times since then and it’s getting a bit frayed around the edges now. However, I’ve never found a better set of travel …

Altec Lansing inMotion Air

Altec Lansing inMotion Air wireless speaker

Review Altec Lansing’s inMotion range of portable speakers has been popular with iPod and iPhone owners for many years. However, the inMotion Air turns out to be a break with tradition – in fact, it’s not specifically designed for the iPod at all. Altec Lansing inMotion Air Altec Lansing's inMotion Air I was, perhaps, taken in by …

Altec Lansing Octiv 450

Altec Lansing Octiv 450 iPad speaker

Review After a slow start, quite a few iPad speaker-docks in the shops these days, one of the most recent arrivals being the Octiv 450 from Altec Lansing – well known for its inMotion range of portable iPod speakers.

Ten Essential... Travel Speakers

Product Round-up With summer galloping towards us with unjustifiable confidence, the thoughts of young men an women turn towards kit that will work alfresco. With this in mind, today I'm taking a shufti at travel speakers. The key ingredients here are size, weight and price - or rather the the lack thereof in all three instances - an internal …

B&W Zeppelin Mini

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini

Review Bowers & Wilkins' Zeppelin is undoubtedly the world's most iconic iPod speaker. Every one of its rivals, from the high end of the market downward, looks pretty much how you'd expect an iPod speaker to look. Not so the elongated ovoid that is the Zeppelin. Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Mini B&W's Zeppelin Mini: not quite as …

Altec Lansing Expression Plus and Edifier E3350

Altec Lansing Expressionist Plus v. Edifier E3350

Review With most computers bulging at the seams with music and video files, the days of making do with even a cheap set of active stereo speakers, let alone laptop offerings, are truly dead and buried. A decent 2.1 active speaker system will not only pay dividends when it comes to playing your music but can also provide bowel trembling …

Altec Lansing InMotion IMT702

Altec Lansing inMotion Max iPhone speaker

Review The world is not exactly short of portable iPod speaker systems, ranging from the merely adequate - such as Logitech's Pure-Fi Anywhere - to the rather good - such as Intempo's InSession. Generally, they sell for about £100, are about the size of a large house brick and produce a sound that while fine for the odd hour or two in …

Ten of the Best... MP3 speakers

Round-up Portable loudspeakers are always a tricky proposition. Generally, small speakers produce an equally small sound. If you do try to pump up the volume then the sound tends to become distorted. So there’s a difficult balancing act between the size of the speakers and the quality and volume of the sound that they can produce. …
