Selling this Mint Condition pair of Portable Altec Lansing XT1 Speakers with its own zippered padded Carry Case.
They are USB Powered.
I used these speakers with a Viewsonic LED Palm Sized Travel presentation Projector I am selling in another ad. Different job so these are no longer required.

They sound great. There is no subwoofer but man do they sound a lot lot better than any laptop speaker or any device with poor quality speakers and USB powered outputs. A lot better. And easier to hear and understand. they are great for portable use and travel using very little space in your luggage.
I kept them in excellent condition. They are mint and work perfectly. With a padded zippered travel case and all the connectivity cords.
Selling these for well under what I paid retail.


A Review Write up (from APTM reviews):
Of course, portable speakers are nothing new. I can remember a pair of speakers some kid brought in to school back in about fifth grade so we could all listen to his Walkman on the bus. The problem with most portable speakers is that they’re either unpowered, making them little better than the built-in speakers they’re intended to supplement, or they’re bulky, rendering them rather non-portable.

Altec Lansing has attempted to solve both problems with their USB-powered XT1 portable speaker system, and for the most part, they’ve succeeded pretty well. The XT1 is essentially a repackaged version of their various inMotion portable speaker/dock iPod accessories, but unlike the inMotion line, the XT1 is targeted at laptop users.

These attractive stereo speakers come in their own carrying case, which also holds two sets of USB cables—a nifty retractable cable and a more standard cable—and the removable speaker stands. The case is 8.5" × 7" × 2" with two internal dividers and a small pocket for easy sorting of the various cables. The only complaint about the case is that it’s just a hair too small; it needs to be about half an inch wider.

As with most USB speakers, no drivers are required. Simply connect everything in accordance with the included pictoral quick-start guide and ensure that the speakers are selected as the output device in the Sound preference pane.
Volume control can be achieved either via the OS or via the buttons on the side of the right-hand speaker unit, which also features a power button (to mute the speakers or turn them off when they’re not needed) and a standard 3.5-mm stereo mini-jack input. The input seems to be a fairly useless feature, as you can’t get any sound out of the speakers at all unless USB power is provided. The only real use for this port would be if you have a laptop old enough to support USB but not USB audio.

The speakers sound pretty darn good. As you’d expect, the midrange and treble response is excellent, making for top-notch voice quality. After all, these are the same drivers in Altec’s FX6021 satellites and the various inMotion products. The downside, of course, is that there’s no subwoofer, making bass response fairly weak. It’s still far superior to the bass response of the built-in speakers on a 15" AlBook, and the XT1 takes full advantage of the USB power, delivering a much cleaner, louder signal without distortion.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the XT1 exhibits none of the high-frequency hiss that plagues the otherwise-superb FX6021 desktop system. The USB input is a digital input, not an analog one, which prevents electrical noise in the circuitry in the absence of a signal.
