When I got this from the Amazon Vine programme I looked at the price and thought there was no way I'd pay full price for the dock! I'd not come across Altec before, and having had problems with electronics from unfamiliar brands before I set my expectations quite low.

The truth is that even if I had set my expectations as high as I could this dock would have surpassed them even at the price. It is quite simply the best dock I have ever heard. The way it picks up every single element of the sound from the lowest Bass note up is unbelievably good. Whatever you play on this from Metal to Classical, and all points in between on the musical spectrum, will be crystal clear and reproduced in a way that makes the humblest MP3 or iPod sound like the best midi system. Another advantage is that through the connection at the back you can plug in any MP3, not just an iPod.

The most minor of moans that I have is that the remote is a little hit and miss when it comes to raising and lowering the volume, but once you get used to that its not really a problem.

Would I have paid full price for this? On reflection, absolutely and I can give no higher praise than that.

Good sound. Good portability. The only thing that would make these speakers even better would be to have built in FM radio, like the previous model did. The docking station is also slightly tight if you have a skin on your itouch, but it is possible to squeeze it on there without removing the protective cover.

The sound is fabulous, but the connection for the iPod is a problem. I always have to insert eh iPod twice before it connects and plays. I'm disappointed with the battery power of the Altec Lansing. Not more than a few hours playing, and once you've charged it, it decharges itself even if you don't use it within three days. But if you leave it charging while you play, there is interference with the sound. Can't compare it to other portable iPod docks but I'm not sure now whether I should have bought this at all.

Anyone who's ever owned an Altec Lansing iPod speaker dock will know that they make good quality product. The inMotion Classic III is the third Altec Lansing dock I've owned, after the original inMotion nearly a decade ago and more recently the Altec Lansing T612 - High End Speaker For iPhone/iPod - Black, which is still in use as the main stereo in our home. Both were/are excellent products and the inMotion Classic III continues that trend.

Sound quality-wise I can't really fault it. Considering its size and intended purpose it provides clear playback. If you're an audio snob who wants to hear every note of a performance then maybe you'll be disappointed, but if you were I doubt you'd you be listening to an iPod in the first place. If all you want to do is fill a room or space with sound then the inMotion Classic III will happily do that for you.

Looks wise its also pretty good, if hardly striking. For the most part matt black and with a long but relatively shallow profile it seems intended to blend into the background rather than be a stand-out piece of cutting edge design. It functional rather than flash.

This is best epitomised by two nice little design features; the pop out dock and the magnetic cubby-hole for the remote-control. The former has two advantages. Firstly it prevents you from accidentally damaging the iPod connector when the dock is in transit and secondly it means that you don't get a build up of dust and dirt around the dock when its not in use (something all my various iPod docks have been prone to). The remote control storage is even better however, as it improves the portability of the entire device.

I have this and I also have the Altec Lansing IMT320. I'm a fan of sound-docks with no bells and whistles, I can't understand why you would spend extra on one with a built in DAB radio or alarm clock or whatever when your ipod can do those jobs just fine. So both units fit that bill. I have it on my desk and being in the habit of using it and the ipad radio ap (I use TuneIn)means my phone is always charged and its been a long while since I was caught short without juice or had to consciously think about charging my phone.

Anyway - the positives of this unit are:

- It looks good. It has decent build quality, and doesn't have the 'cheap' look that some other sound docks have.
- Sound and size. It can fill a room for everyday listening (you wouldn't want to host a party with it though) and is small enough and portable enough to take away on holiday. It also has a remote control, though this feels a bit superfluous to me.

However, insofar as I have niggles they come when comparing it to my Altec Lansing IMT320. Now my 320 is no way as pretty as this inMotion Classic and doesn't have a remote, but at the end of the day it is between a half and two thirds of the price. My 320 is more portable (better protected) and the sound is every bit as good at everyday volumes. So whilst I am happy with this unit if I was on a budget and could only have one I would go with the 320 as I couldn't really jusify the price premium on the inMotion Classic III for the difference you get.
