Play your music wirelessly with Pure Contour 200i Air
International CES 2012, Las Vegas, USA: Pure – the world leading maker of
wireless music and radio systems – presents Contour 200i Air, a powerful and
stylish wireless audio system with Apple AirPlay* that allows the user to play
their music wirelessly via a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch without the
need to dock the device.
At an SRP of just £199.99,
the Pure Contour 200i Air not only supports wireless streaming, but also
includes a dock for iPad, iPhone and iPod for charging as well as music
Says Colin Crawford, Pure’s
director of marketing: “Some day we’ll wonder why we ever had to physically
connect devices, and Apple AirPlay is leading that behavioural seachange. There
is nothing to beat the convenience of sitting back in your armchair to control
your music collection with your iPad or iPhone, while the music itself is
played beautifully and powerfully by Contour 200i Air.”
Contour 200i Air connects
simply to the user’s home network via Ethernet or WiFi, and produces 36W RMS of
digital quality sound delivering an expansive, room-filling listening
experience. The DSP corrected, high-efficiency audio amplifiers and custom
designed 3.5 inch dual full-range speaker drive units ensure exceptional
clarity and tonal richness.
Contour 200i Air is an ideal
companion to the free Pure Lounge app which enables access to tens of thousands
of internet radio stations, on demand content (podcasts and listen again
programmes) and ambient sounds, as well as the ability to discover, explore and
listen to millions of music tracks via the Pure Music subscription service**. All
content from the Pure Lounge app including Pure Music, can be streamed
wirelessly to Contour 200i Air.
‘Works with iPhone, iPod and iPad’ compliant,
the Pure Contour 200i Air allows users to dock, charge and play their iPad, iPod
or iPhone. When docked, music stored on the Apple device can be controlled
using the supplied credit card style remote control. It is also possible to
connect the Contour 200i Air to a home AV system using the digital audio ouput
and there is an auxiliary input for connecting an MP3 player. A multi-coloured
LED status indicator shows which source the Contour 200i Air is playing.
Software updates are delivered seamlessly to Contour 200i Air over WiFi.
