Another day, another iPod dock system.

The Altec Lansing iMT702 shows up to the party with an extensive specification: integrated lithium-ion battery, good for three or four hours' continuous playback; FM radio reception with four presets accessible from the remote control; 3.5mm input for other MP3 players.

The iMT702 is compact enough, also, to be tucked under one arm or stashed in hand-luggage without any problems.

The dock springs out from the front, control is via remote, or a row of buttons on top, and it will cope with all recent iPods.

With a Classic secured and a lossless file of Roy Orbison's The Comedians playing, we sat back. And were underwhelmed.

More after the break

We're not expecting a dock like this to provide the last word in scale or punch, but the Altec Lansing sounds confined, constricted and, frankly, dull.
