Default Good portable music/stereo to go with Nexus S?

I love my Harmon Kardon Go + Play, but unfortunately the 3.5mm jack is busted so I can't connect it to my Nexus S. Looking for something like it, portable but also capable of being able to plug it into power.

And this is asking a lot, but a remote that could control the music would be nice too.

Since both my MacBook Air and Nexus S have bluetooth, I'm wondering if a stereo that allows me to play bluetooth would be pretty ideal? Any such item exist?

Maybe you could use a Bluetooth adapter? Like this: Amazon.com: Bluetooth Stereo Gateway DC800 Bluetooth Adapter for Home Stereo: Electronics or this Amazon.com: Sony Two-Way Bluetooth Adapter for iPod and MP3 Players: Electronics

Then you could just get any stereo you want. Those two don't have remotes though, but you could technically just keep the phone in your pocket and use it as the remote.

Cool What I'm using for now anyway...

The best solution would of course be a nice BT speaker system/stereo unit.

What I am using for now is a set of small rechargable speakers charge via USB and play via 3.5mm jack.

Remove the XX from the URL and check them out. I bought the orginal British versions few years ago.

hXXp://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/ihome-ihome-rechargeable-mini-speakers-ihm78rc-ihm78rc/10140971.aspx?path=d82910a874afde6e94c4b914093cd29 8en02

The sound from these speakers is surprising. Not going to shake the frames off the walls, but set on a solid table they put out good base as well.

BB & Hammacher Schlemmer also have the same product with retractable cabling.

I have Bose stuff too, and these aren't them, but for what they are, they work well.

All the best finding a setup that pleases you!

I use a jawbone jambox, and I love it. Rechargeable via USB and can play BT or through 3.5mm. Its a bit pricey but bbm is having that bogo accessory half off and I bought it with my beats by Dre so I got my jambox $100 off($200 original price). Well spent I believe though.

I use the Creative D100 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker at work it works fantastic and sounds very good for the price it's well worth it.

I ended up getting the BlueAnt. It's been good. Connects quickly and reliably to the Nexus S via bluetooth, and sound quality for a small room is good. For the price tough to beat.
