Altec Lansing today introduced a new inMotion model called the iM4 that works with any brand of MP3 or CD player, unlike the company’s iPod-specific models. The inMotion iM4 is a one-piece portable system with two speakers on either side of a 4.5” x 5” no-skid rubberized platform that holds a player of any size in place. The iM4 features a 4-watt Class D digital amplifier that powers four 1” neodymium micro drivers for “clear reproduction over the entire frequency range,” while Altec’s MaxxBass technology creates quality bass without a subwoofer. The iM4 can run on 4AA batteries or AC power. It will ship in February for $129.95.

Pleeeease give me pictures!

Not liking it when this site posts articles giving new products with no pictures. Or at least say they’re not available.

Pics would be nice… So many PRs lack them—I’ve never understood that. I see nothing on their site yet either.

(I just noticed their PowerMac G5-matched speakers, though… nice!)

Too bad Altec Lansing has lowered their quality levels—all their new speakers hiss. Even the “high-end” FX6021 and MX5021 which is unacceptable for the prices they continue to charge.
