Gear4 has introduced the HouseParty 24/7, a 2:1 stereo speaker system for iPods that also features an alarm clock, remote control and AM/FM radio.

Available in white, the system contains a pair of two-inch six-watt speakers and a 12-watt sub-woofer. The device features an LCD screen to show track names or radio channels and ships with a 16-function remote control.

As an alarm clock, the system can be set to wake you with music from the iPod or a radio channel. It also offers a snooze function.

The system costs £99.99. It integrates a dock that will recharge an inserted iPod, and draws power from the AC adaptor supplied.
