The Altec Lansing T612 is just like any other iPod dock and stands a little over 8 inches. Black, with a touch of silver, the T612 can play music from the iPhone without wireless interference. The speaker only features an auxiliary line-in that allows you to connect other audio players and a power socket. The controls for the volume, bass and treble, which can also be adjusted via the remote are placed towards the top of the speaker. You cannot switch between albums and artists using the remote, so you will need to first select them via the player. You can also wall mount the speakers.
There are two 3-inch full range speakers to handle the vocals and bass and two 1-inch tweeters for the treble.
The T612 was able to deliver decent vocals but the treble and bass was a total washout with both sounding muffled. Even after adjusting the bass and treble there wasn't any change in audio quality. The unit was able to dish out surprisingly high volumes though, without any tear in the audio. However, with the volume at its maximum level there was a certain amount of distortion in the sound produced. Bass heavy tracks also bring about a certain level of deformation in the overall sound. Taking all things into consideration the Altec Lansing T612 is just not good enough.
