Gear 4 has announced HouseParty III, a 30-watt home stereo speaker with FM radio for iPods.

The system costs £79.99, leading company MD Tom Dudderidge to describe it as the: "Volkswagen Golf of iPod speakers, providing performance and design with broad appeal at an affordable price.”
The system carries a built-in FM radio and line-in port, and hosts an LED display behind the speaker grilles that displays volume or radio frequency; a retractable dock and switches on automatically when an iPod is plugged into that dock.

The system ships with a remote control as well as full on-board controls. It charges a docked iPod and hosts a USB port for syncing the media player from a computer.
