Altec Lansing Octiv 450 Stereo Speaker Audio Dock – Remedying under-achieving iPads!

For the past 70 years, Altec Lansing has been revered has being one of the most innovative and valuable audio brands in the world. Complying with its highly recommendable reputation is Altec Lansing’s latest inspired aural creation, the Octiv 450 Stereo Speaker Audio Dock, which by endowing innovative engineering qualities, multiple screen viewing angles and enhanced sound quality, is quite possibly the perfect docking system for iPad, iPhone and iPod users.


Despite the fact that iPads are rarely used to their full capabilities, there are very little iPad accessories on the market. Aiming to rectify under-achieving iPads, the Octiv 420 integrates Altec Lansing’s Audio Alignment technology, a distinctive centre channel voicing delivers a distortion-free performance and enhanced sound quality even when pumped up to the max. With an Apple 30-pin connector, users can dock and charge their iPad, whilst a 3.5mm auxiliary jack provides support for other devices.

Commenting on Altec Lansing’s newest audio creation, Adrian Bedggood, EMEA Director of Business Management said:

“Users enjoy the iPad’s great versatility for business, entertainment and sharing audio and video content. Now their experience will be significantly enhanced due to upgraded audio quality and sound distribution.”

The visual merits of the Octiv 450 are equally as commendable as it audio credits. Possessing a unique rotating connection arm, visual imagery can be viewed both in landscape and portrait arrangements. Being able to tilt the iPad in either direction, not only provides multiple viewing angles for an optimum screening experience, but also provides support while typing on the iPad. All manoeuvring for an optimal iPad performance can be achieved from afar at users’ leisure, as for added expediency, the Octiv 450 comes equipped with a wireless remote.

With its unique performance-enhancing qualities contained within a stylish exterior, it comes as little surprise that the Octiv 450 Stereo Speaker Audio Dock has been awarded with the highly esteemed Innovations, Design and Engineering Award from the Consumer Electronics Association.

To give a loved-one’s iPad the boost it deserves, the Octiv 450 will be available at John Lewis, Apple PC World and Dixons from 1 December 2010 for £129.99.
