I guess what I'm after in earlier terms is a portable CD player.

But **** that, Fourex don't use CD's no more man.....he's got his PC loaded with MP3 's that can play on one continuous loop.

I want to stick those mp3's on a USB drive and plug it into "something" to take with me anywhere.

What is that "something" I'm looking for ....



I guess its like a docking station but without the phone. (I don't want to fill my phone up with music)

You're after a portable speaker then. Does your player have Bluetooth, if so, there are some fantastic little Bluetooth speakers around at the moment. Most of them also have aux inputs too, but not USB.

What about your phone? Or can you not afford the space to music?

There are portable speakers around that have USB input. Do you want a remote?

We have a little mini system that cost $300 here. Battery or plug. Its not separate speakers though.

Where will you be using it?

I bought a UE Boom portable speaker that pairs wirelessly via bluetooth (can be connected via USB). That means I can play music from my laptop, ipad, phone, anyone elses device, anywhere I want. The sound quality is really impressive for $200.

Logitech UE Boom review - Engadget

You get about 15m range depending on walls or things between device and speaker, and you can get a good 12+ hours battery time. I paid the $25 for two more years of replacement warranty, mostly for the battery.

Very happy, you can even pair multiple speakers to an audio source.

I've got a Logitech unit too. They are impressive.

You might want to look at Mini HiFi Systems for what you're looking for [MENTION=7980]Mr Fourex[/MENTION].

Ghetto solution:

iPod shuffle/phone with music on it + PC speakers & sub + AUX cable + power outlet = good times!

Probably cheaper, but a tad more inconvenient. :D

That's about the size of our little one. Which we never use for the love of Bluetooth.

I enlarged the photo.
Thanks Admiral Smartmouth. I just meant that if it requires a power point, and has external speakers that require plugging in to the main unit, that's like saying that my PC is portable. I'm sure someone will post a pic of someone at Starbucks with a full PC setup.
