I am happy I bought myself this awesome Altec Lansing M650 30-Pin iPod/iPhone Speaker Dock that arrived today because now I am enjoying my great music without having those small earphones in my ears. Music fills the entire or whole living room and I can go wherever in the house and still hearing my music.
I think I got what I paid for. Reading previous customers’ reviews help a lot. I bought this item based on the reviews provided by the satisfied customers because I trust what they were writing are true. Hmmm…. loving my new speaker dock.

From the Manufacturer
Much more than a stylish speaker system, the Altec Lansing Octiv 650 lets you play video from your iPhone 4 or iPod touch on your TV. A free, downloadable “Music Mood” app lets you control a seven-band equalizer using your iPhone or iPod, and the app also provides an ambient library of relaxing visuals and sounds. Multiple input/output jacks let you use the speaker for TV audio, and an integrated, 4-inch downward-firing subwoofer improves the bass content of both your movies and your music. Compact enough to fit on your kitchen counter, this speaker has an all-black finish and wedge-shaped architecture that helps disperse sound evenly throughout your room.

TV and Audio Input/Output Options
In addition to playing your music, the Octiv 650 enables you to play videos from your iPhone or iPod on your TV. The speaker features component and composite video outputs, making it easy to watch YouTube, Netflix or other video streaming services right on your TV (only compatible with 4th Gen iPod touch and iPhone 4). Additionally, an Aux In jack makes it possible to use the Octiv 650 as a dedicated speaker system for your TV.
Free “Music Mood” App Provides a Seven-Band Equalizer and Ambient Nature Sounds/Visuals
The Octiv 650 features onboard adjustable bass and treble controls that allow you to manually fine-tune the acoustics of the speaker. By using the seven-band equalizer in the free “Music Mood” app in tandem with the speaker’s control, you can create your preferred sound profile. Turn up the bass when listening to hip-hop, or emphasize gentle mids while enjoying classical. Alternately, you can select from any one of the speaker’s built-in EQ presets.
The “Music Mood” app also provides a library of ambient nature sounds and visuals, so you can kick back and zone out to relaxation videos like an ocean sunset, a running stream, or a crackling fireplace.
Nested Subwoofer Delivers Rich, Warm Bass
In spite of its compact size, the Octiv 650 delivers powerful audio performance. It has been engineered to render your music as it was meant to be heard, with crisp highs, mellow mids, and booming lows.
At four inches in diameter, the nested subwoofer is powerful enough to fill your room with heavy bass tones. It is located on the bottom of the speaker, completely hidden from view.
Sleek, Wedge-Shaped Design
With its black finish and minimal aesthetic, the Octiv 650 is designed to seamlessly blend in with your décor. Its wedge-shaped architecture creates a more effective structure for sound projection; this design disperses sound evenly throughout your room, eliminating dead spots. This allows the Octiv 650 to compete acoustically with speaker systems many times its size.
Universal iPhone/iPod Compatibility
The Octiv 650 is universally compatible with all iPhone and iPod models (excluding the iPod Shuffle). Compatible devices include the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, and iPhone, and every model of the iPod touch, iPod Classic, and iPod Nano.
