Cheap and wonderful Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 speaker

The Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 is a great choice for any frequent flier, thanks to its travel-friendly design, low cost, and versatility--in the realm of portable speakers, this one's an excellent value.

Altec Lansing

Altec Lansing has had its fingers in the iPod speaker business for several years now, which may explain why the company has been one of the most innovative when it comes to design; the retro-slick iM7 boombox and the ultrathin iM600 provide some excellent evidence of that. Further proof has now materialized in the form of the Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3, an ultracompact speaker that connects to any MP3 player or audio source. The MSRP for this speaker is only $40, but it can be found online for less than $30--an exceptional value given its versatility and passable sound quality. Read the full review.
