London, 5th June 2014  – Pure announces that its Jongo wireless multiroom speakers can now be used with any music streaming service including Pandora, Rdio, Deezer and Spotify. This new update is enabled through the integration of ‘Bluetooth Caskeid’, an enhancement to the superior synchronisation technology used in Jongo speakers.

Globally, there are 500 different music services available across 100 territories,* as well as thousands of radio apps, and this new flexible approach allows music fans to stream their preferred music or radio service, whether that be Radioplayer in the UK, SiriusXM in the US, Spotify or lesser known apps such as Madagascar radio, to multiple Jongo speakers and enjoy their favorite playlists and content throughout their homes.

Caskeid is a licensable technology** developed by Pure’s parent company, Imagination Technologies, to deliver exceptionally accurate synchronized wireless multiroom connected audio streaming. The unique and patented Caskeid technology delivers outstanding audiophile-quality stereo playback with less than 25µs synchronisation accuracy, providing a true ‘Wi-Fi Hi-Fi’ experience that is good enough to replace wires, satisfying even the most demanding audiophile.

This new enhancement to Caskeid seamlessly delivers app content to multiple speakers with a unique combination of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Users simply select their chosen music or radio service app and send it via Bluetooth to a single Jongo speaker in a group. The Caskeid technology integrated into the Jongo speakers takes care of ensuring that music is then seamlessly and synchronously sent to all the speakers in the group.

Nick Hucker, Pure’s marketing director, says: “Jongo was designed with flexibility in mind and now we’ve taken this concept a huge step further with Bluetooth Caskeid, which brings the worlds’ most accurate and advanced audio synchronisation technology together with the most comprehensive audio content, to a much wider audience, giving them the choice to listen to whatever they want, in great quality throughout the home.”

Both Android and iOS users can now access this new feature.

Editor’s Notes

*IFPI report 2013 - services are only counted once in the overall figure even if they are licenced in multiple territories

**Caskeid has already been licensed by Onkyo and the Media-Saturn group for its PEAQ MUNET speakers. All Caskeid enabled speakers will be interoperable.
