Pure adds new music service with offline listening  

London, 15th August 2013: Pure is expanding its Jongo multiroom music system with three additional wireless speakers and a new Pure Connect on-demand music streaming service. The new family of speakers benefit from Pure’s excellence in audio, streaming and synchronisation technology making Jongo one of the most advanced multiroom speaker systems available.

The three new wireless multiroom speakers, Jongo T2, T4 and T6, come in a range of sizes and mounting options and join Jongo S3, a rechargeable, portable wireless speaker and Jongo A2, a wireless hi-fi adapter. Users can simply choose any combination of Jongo speakers to build a powerful system and listen to beautifully synchronised music in a single or multiroom environment. Currently, one of the only systems to offer both wireless multiroom and casual Bluetooth streaming, Jongo offers users the best of both worlds and a truly immersive experience. 

Pure also adds the new ‘Pure Connect Violet’* on-demand music streaming service with offline listening. The new service is available at £9.99 a month and allows users to download playlists to their mobile devices and listen without relying on the mobile network, ideal for listening to favourite tracks on the move.

Says Nick Hucker, Pure’s marketing director: “We know that customers are looking for the convenience that wireless streaming offers and the high quality audio experience that a system like Jongo provides. We have designed Jongo to be as flexible as possible with a range of colours so customers can match their home interior; a range of sizes to suit different rooms and a variety of ways to mount and position the speakers so they fit seamlessly into the home environment and people’s lives. It’s also important to us that our customers can continue their listening away from the home which is why we’ve added the option to listen offline via the Pure Connect app giving users the choice to listen to what they want, when they want, wherever they are; a truly versatile combination.”

Jongo T6 (SRP £299.99)is a powerful wireless speaker bringing room-filling, detailed sound to the Jongo wireless multiroom family. The T6 uses dual concentric loudspeakers and two premium 5.25 inch full range drivers which have been hand tuned by Pure’s audio experts to achieve full range audio with excellent phase control and depth.

Jongo T2 (SRP £129.99) is the ideal Jongo speaker for everyday living and delivers highly efficient Class D audio through 3” mid-range drivers. All components are hand selected by Pure’s audio engineers to achieve the best possible sonic performance, energy efficiency and reliability. 

Jongo T4 (SRP £199.99) - coming soon - is a versatile and perfectly balanced wireless speaker delivering high quality audio whilst maintaining a compact form factor to suit all room sizes. Jongo T4 delivers clean and precise Class D amplified audio with enough punch to more than fill the average lounge or dining room.

Stands and wall mounting accessories: A bespoke stand is available for each Jongo T speaker allowing users to position their speaker in a portrait position and the Pure badge can be rotated so it is perfectly aligned. The stand, which is available in black or white, also enables the speakers to be tilted in four different positions to get the most out of the audio depending on its location. Portrait and landscape sound profiles have been carefully created for each speaker by Pure’s audio experts and these can be selected via the Pure Connect app for an optimum sound experience. Jongo T2 and T4 can also be wall mounted via specially designed brackets.

Stereo pairing**: All Jongo speakers feature unparalleled synchronisation technology which allows users to create an immersive stereo audio experience, simply by pairing two of the same speakers in a room.  Jongo T2, T4 and T6 speakers come with this feature already loaded and Jongo S3 can be upgraded with a free software update. Setting up stereo pairing couldn’t be easier; users simply use the Pure Connect app on their Smartphone or tablet to ‘pair’ two S3, T2, T4 or T6 speakers. Multiple speaker pairs can be set up within one household, which is ideal for larger rooms. Having a range of speaker sizes allows customers to pair smaller speakers such as the T2 or T4 and then combine them with a larger Jongo speaker such as the T6 in a larger room to distribute and enjoy a perfectly balanced sound experience at their leisure. Treble and bass control has also been added to the new version of the app***.

All Jongo products work with the free companion Pure Connect iPad, iPhone and Android app and allow users to listen to multiple products in a single room, or multiple rooms with the audio fully synchronised. Jongo uses Wi-Fi to stream perfectly synchronised audio within a single or multiroom environment, while Bluetooth allows users to stream content from any audio app on their smartphone or tablet to a single Jongo product. Users can simply add extra Jongo speakers or adapters on the same Wi-Fi network to build their multiroom system.

The Jongo multiroom speaker system has been designed to stand out and is available in a range of this season’s on-trend colours. New colours will be introduced so customers can easily update their speakers to match their décor  or mood. Users can choose from a black, or piano (white with black covers) base unit and then purchase clip on covers in burnt orange, lime green, or mango (from £12.99) to match their home colour scheme and other Jongo products.

Selected Pure products including Sensia 200D Connect, One Flow and Evoke F4 are compatible with and can be used to control the Jongo multiroom music system; these are also available in addition to Pure’s complete range through www.pure.com and all good electrical retailers.
