Altec Lansing Introduces iMmini, First iPod Mini Portable Audio Attachment

The iMmini from Altec Lansing is a boom box type attachment for iPod Mini digital audio players. The add-on speakers feature neodymium micro drivers and MaxxBass technology.

“iPod has changed the way people listen to music and is now the number one digital music player in the world. iPod mini owners now have a choice for full spectrum, room-sized sound — either the new, smaller Altec Lansing iMmini or the original inMotion,” said Mark Lucas, CEO and President of Altec Lansing Technologies.

Altec Lansing’s iMmini, at just 7″ x 4.4″ x 1″, is small enough to easily drop into a briefcase, backpack, or suitcase. The unit features two 1″ and two 18mm neodymium micro drivers encased behind perforated aluminum grilles. An onboard 4-watt Class D digital amplifier pumps out rich, full sound with no outside power source needed — in fact, four AA batteries can power the inMotion mini for more than 24 hours.

Contributing to the cross-range performance of the iMmini’s micro drivers is the unit’s use of MaxxBass(R) technology. This remarkable audio concept, which uses specialized harmonic techniques borrowed from the professional audio world, delivers strikingly deep bass without a subwoofer. The result is sound far more robust than you’d ever expect from such a small package.

Although it is designed for the iPod mini, Altec Lansing’s iMmini lets users of any portable audio device put away their headphones and let everyone hear the music. Music enthusiasts can listen to a CD player, MP3 player, laptop, or other product via the auxiliary input while simultaneously inserting their iPod mini into the docking bay for synchronization or recharging.

Altec Lansing’s inMotion iMmini portable audio system for the Apple iPod mini is priced at $129.95 (MSRP) and will be available in late summer at all Apple store locations as well as the Apple online store.
