Contour D1 – the versatile digital music system for all smart device users

Contour D1 Lifestyle

London, UK, 13th March 2014: Pure presents Contour D1, the world’s first digital radio dock with Bluetooth streaming that accommodates Apple models with both 30 pin and lightning connectors. Incredibly versatile, Contour D1 caters for modern households with multiple smart devices and is the ideal choice for the whole family.

Contour D1 (SRP £149.99) is Apple certified and comes with a beautifully engineered revolving dock with clip in adaptor so users can charge and playback audio from new and legacy iPods, iPhones and iPads. Additionally, users of smart devices with Bluetooth can stream audio wirelessly to Contour D1 and the inclusion of digital radio completes the package giving users the choice to listen to their favourite station in digital quality.

Says Nick Hucker, Pure’s director of marketing: “Despite the growing trend towards streaming music wirelessly, consumers still want and need to charge their Apple devices. Contour D1 offers the best possible flexibility for all the family with the choice of docking old or new Apple models, listening to a wide variety of digital radio stations or  playing music wirelessly from the comfort of the sofa regardless of  Android or Apple ownership.” 

Contour D1 is an ideal companion to the free Pure Connect* app which enables access to over  20,000 global internet radio stations, in excess of 200,000 free on-demand programmes and podcasts as well as millions of streamable music tracks via Pure’s subscription music service.  All content from the Pure Connect app can be streamed wirelessly to Contour D1 via Bluetooth.

Building on the success of Pure’s existing Contour family of docks, Contour D1 benefits from the same contemporary styling and powerful audio and comes with a clever, revolving dock that can be tucked away when the dock isn’t being used.

Benefitting from Pure’s heritage of British design and engineering, Contour D1 delivers vibrant, high-clarity room-filling sound with 20W RMS of audio power. Other features include DAB, FM, input for other audio devices and a full-function slimline remote control with magnetic remote tidy. 

Contour D1 is available now at all good electrical retailers. Please visit www.pure.com or call 0845 1489001 for more information.
