Logic3 iStation 3
Advantages: Flexible power and sound input options
Disadvantages: Speakers of this size are only ever going to be so good
Compact and lightweight the i-station 3 is easy to pack and carry on a journey of almost any distance. Being able to run from a mains power supply or batteries makes it equally as useful in small hotel rooms as it is when camping in the wilderness.
The main dock contains an iPod connector for the latest generation iPod classic and touch which ensures a digital sound is streamed to the speakers for a higher quality instead of using an analogue stereo jack in the headphone port. Given the size of the speakers the difference in quality between the two is negligible. Where the decision to make use of this Apple proprietary connection really comes into its own is that it allows the iPod to charge while docked as well so the party stops when you get tired, not your iPod's battery.
There is also a stereo input at the back of the dock and a stereo lead included so any other MP3 player or phone with a standard headphone jack can be played through the speakers. This isn't an iPod only piece of hardware!
The remote control is VERY slim but contains all the functions you could require for basic operation of the speakers or iPod. Unfortunately for some slim may be code for easy to lose but it does mean its extremely portable as long as you can keep hold of it.
The speakers themselves are as good as you could possibly expect from a system of this size. They aren't going to burst down walls or eardrums with thumping bass or result in complaints from neighbours but as a portable system to allow you to listen to music with friends while away from home they are perfect.
This coupled with the variety of power and input options makes them the perfect choice even if you don't actually own an iPod.
Summary: Great portable speakers to take a small party with you anywhere you go
