Conclusion:

Well, the good news is that my iPod and I are speaking to each other again. It turns out that the Altec Lansing inMotion iMV712 was exactly what we needed, and more. The 8.5” high-definition LCD was a great addition and provided clear, crisp and smooth cinematic replay. The best part was that not only could I watch media from my iPod, I could also input any device with composite cables into the aux input. I was surprised at how well the screen handled Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec, the tracks were very detailed and the cars held their vibrant sheen. The wireless remote is flawless, its compact design and simplicity are extremely useful, but even more useful is the fact that you are able to navigate the iPod’s menu with it. If you’re not interested in watching a movie on the built-in LCD, the addition of the S-Video out makes connecting this device to your television no problem. However, only the iPod can be viewed through S-Video. One thing I found troubling was the fact that there is no way to adjust the settings of the built-in LCD. It would be nice to able to change the brightness, color or sharpness if needed. The sound quality was great, but when the volume was turned up, distortion was noticeable. You could solve the problem by turning down the bass and treble, but this caused the dynamic-range to sound very soft when set to a lower volume. I also was concerned for the safety of my iPod as it sat exposed to any dangers perched atop the iMV712. Overall, the Altec Lansing inMotion iMV712 is capable of producing great sound, great picture, and a great relationship between you and your iPod.

 

Pros:

  • High-resolution LCD
  • Composite Input
  • iPod Navigating Remote
  • S-Video Output
  • Dynamic-range

 

Cons:

  • Non-adjustable LCD
  • Distortion When Played Loudly
  • Unprotected iPod Dock
