I know many Hifi systems now offer MP3 Playback from flash memory via the USB port, but I haven't been able to find a portable stereo (sometimes called "boombox", "ghetto blaster" or what ever) that the same offers USB playback capabilities for sale here in NZ

I'm Looking for A Portable Stereo with reasonable sound, outputs more than 5w RMS and has decent MP3 (maybe OGG as well?) Playback functionality via a USB port (i.e select and skip tracks backwards and forwards, etc), has standard RCA AUX inputs and has a sleep / auto off function? Would like to be able to carry it around the house as well (hence, why I mentioned portable stereo), I had a look at some of the mini systems which offered USB playback, but when I looked at them in the shop, they were humongous.

Does such a Beast which I am looking for exist? Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance
