CES News: The New Altec Lansing Multimedia System Rocks!
Back in the day, Altec Lansing used to be a company respected for it’s state of the art Voice of the Theater speaker systems. They and JBL were arch-rivals and both produced awesome loudspeakers. Then they went through a number ownership changes and started to churn out cheap products with substandard performance…a far cry from their heyday.
Last week, I was strolling past their CES booth and heard something that made me do a double take. They were doing a demo of their very cool looking Expressionist Ultra 200 watt computer speaker system. And I have to say that I was really impressed. It delivers great bass and plays loud. Very loud. The system sells for $199 and given it’s performance, cosmetics and fit/finish, it is a good value. I immediately added it to my product assortment and you can check it out here. As always, shipping is only $5.00! BC
