HouseParty II iPod remote speaker system

MP3 players

Nothing to do with the early 90s hip hop movie sequel, this HouseParty II from Gear4 is the latest in a long line of iPod docking station/speaker system units to hit the market, with the added twist of it being remote controlled.

Like other similar systems, the HouseParty II speaker system sets out to convert your iPod into a larger sound system, with the added bonus of charging your iPod whilst docked. Soundwise, you get 2x 15 Watt output through its two tweeters and two woofers. It’s compatible with latter day iPods, but does come with adaptors for older models. There’s also a cable included to connect with other audio devices including laptops, DVD, CD and other MP3 players.

Probably the one stand-out feature from other sub-£100 models is a fully functional remote control, which allows complete iPod menu navigation and control of the speaker unit’s volume control.

Available in black or white, you can pick it up for around £70.
