A friend came on holiday and set up one of these to entertain us in the evenings. I was looking for a loudspeaker solution for my own iPod and, although I wasn't familiar with the Altec Lansing brand (an American company) I really liked the styling as well as the sound quality.

The only reason I didn't send mine back was the fact ... Read the complete review
