Gear4 HouseParty Blu

Gear4 today marked the release of the HouseParty Blu, an iPod speaker dock with the important addition of an onboard Bluetooth receiver. The technology lets the 30-watt stereo play music from A2DP-supporting cellphones or any other source using the wireless standard while still freeing up ports on the main system. Gear4 also includes a minimalist touchscreen for controlling playback as well as a remote that can separately navigate the speakers as well as the iPod itself. A line-in jack provides a hook for the iPod shuffle or other wired-only music players without Apple's Dock Connector.

The firm says the HouseParty Blu wiil work with all fourth-generation iPods, iPod minis, and newer models, and includes adapters to fit each model. It ships today in Britain for £80 ($158) but may be made available to North America and other regions soon.
