Gear4 HouseParty III

Britain's Gear4 has unveiled the HouseParty III, a unique approach to iPod speakers. The 30-watt system is meant to be as unintrusive as possible, blending in with its environment. A retractable dock stows away when not connected to one of Apple's music players; even the LCD for the integrated FM radio is hidden behind the speaker grille to avoid standing out, Gear4 said.

The stereo charges, plays, and synchronizes almost every dockable iPod from the fourth-generation or later; a minijack input provides a basic audio link for iPod shuffles and other devices without Apple's special connector. The HouseParty III is packed with a wireless remote and is available first in the UK for 80 ($157).
