Barcelona (Mobile World Congress 2009) – February 16th, 2009 – Altec Lansing, sound specialist and a division of Plantronics, Inc., today unveiled their new inMotion MAX™ premium digital audio docking speaker system at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. With no wires the inMotion MAX is a sleek, truly portable all-in-one speaker system for iPhone and iPod users that was created especially for music die-hards who live in a borderless world. As the consumer lifestyle becomes increasingly mobile, the inMotion MAX delivers lush, rich sound in an ultra lightweight, bold design that moves beyond the confines of the home and onto the street, enabling it’s users to share their music, whether using an iPhone, iPod, MP3 player or built-in FM-Radio, to create the perfect ambience anywhere, anytime.
“Altec Lansing has a unique history of designing innovative and modern sound systems to match the audio needs of the ever-evolving music and entertainment culture dating back more than 70 years,” said Luc Ackaert, EMEA Marketing Director of Altec Lansing. “As one of the first developers of the iPod docking system, we feel the new iMotion Max speaker system for the iPhone and iPod is a representation of our passion for meaningful design, ultimate freedom and flexibility and above all, impeccable crystal-clear sound to capture the true emotion of music.”
High Quality Sound
Using proprietary ESS technology for an expanded sound stage, powerful XdB bass-enhancement and twin precision-matched, full spectrum speakers, the new Altec Lansing inMotion MAX delivers crisp sound unmatched by the competition and at a surprisingly large stereophonic range – easily filling any size room with rich, realistic, distortion-free audio.
iPhone In-Call Support
Compatible with the Apple iPhone, Apple iPod and most MP3 players, the inMotion MAX speaker system automatically pauses music when a call is received on an iPhone. In order to avoid any nasty interruptions mid-song, the inMotion MAX is fully immune to GSM and Wi-Fi signals, preventing the speakers from picking up potential intermittent noises emitted by the iPhone 3G, original iPhone or other mobile devices.
For those aren’t early risers by nature, the inMotion MAX supports iPhone and iPod alarm and sleep timer features and is additionally equipped with a built-in digital FM radio and high-contrast amber LCD to display songs and FM station data (RDS). Perfect for parties on the go, the inMotion MAX includes an enhanced remote to control speaker system functions, the FM Radio and playlist and song navigation, as well as an auxiliary input to connect a second audio source. Whether on the road or at home, the inMotion Max’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 3.5 hours of continuous play.
Available in March 2009, the Altec Lansing inMotion MAX (iMT702) system will be sold at leading electrical retailers and priced in the region of £149.99 (including VAT).
