Pure Brings 'Jongo,' the World's First Family of Affordable Multiroom Audio Products, to North America

The Jongo Multiroom Music System Is the Affordable, Simple and Enjoyable Way to Wirelessly Listen to Anything Anywhere

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- (International CES South Hall Upper Level, #36254) -- Today at CES 2013, Pure announces 'Jongo,' the world's first family of affordable multiroom audio products that allows the user to start with a single speaker and add more Jongo products for perfectly synchronized audio all around their home.

"Consumers are drawn to convenience and a compelling user experience. The Jongo multiroom audio system delivers on both counts with an affordable, simple and lovely way to control and stream synchronized audio," said Noam Meppen, Pure's director of sales, US.

The Pure Jongo multiroom music system:

The Jongo system offers users the choice to stream audio content via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Bluetooth allows users to stream content from any audio app on their smartphone or tablet, including locally stored music, to a single Jongo product. Using Wi-Fi along with the free Pure Connect app, users can get the additional benefit of listening to multiple, tightly synchronised Jongo products in a single room or in a multiroom environment. The new Pure Connect app gives users access to local music on their smartphone or tablet, thousands of radio stations, on-demand programs and podcasts, as well as millions of music tracks via the Pure Music subscription service(1). Users can simply add extra Jongo speakers or adapters on the same Wi-Fi network to build their multiroom system.

In addition, compatible Pure products such as Sensia 200D Connect and One Flow can seamlessly synchronize with members of the Jongo family and can even be used to control the system for a truly class leading multispeaker and multiroom experience.

Launching at CES -- Jongo S340B:

The Pure Jongo S340B portable, rechargeable wireless speaker ($229 MSRP) can be used on its own or grouped together with other Jongo speakers to deliver the most affordable multiroom audio system on the market today. Jongo products use Wi-Fi to stream audio within a single or multiroom environment. Bluetooth is included for more informal, one-to-one streaming which is ideal for use in the garden or for sharing the fun with friends. The perfect addition to any social gathering, Jongo S340B can really 'get the party started!'

The Pure Jongo S340B offers rich, detailed and vibrant sound despite its pint-sized proportions and comes with four tweeters, and an upward-firing subwoofer for powerful bass. Thanks to its five speakers and individual power amplifiers, Jongo delivers surprisingly punchy audio and with a simple press of the "audio" button on the rear of the unit, the user can select flexible audio profiles to make the most of any environment including 360 degrees sound for community listening (stereo or mono); forward facing stereo or outdoor boost. A rechargeable battery pack is included as standard and provides up to 10 hours of listening per charge.

Jongo S340B will be available in Q1 2013 in black, or white with black speaker grills, with optional user-fit colored grill packs in burnt orange, lime green, mango or white (MSRP $29.99). Jongo S340B can be pre-ordered now at www.amazon.com.

Previewing at CES -- Jongo T640B and Jongo A140B:

To use alongside the Jongo S340B, Pure will also offer Jongo T640B, a powerful, stereo wireless speaker and Jongo A140B, a hi-fi adapter as part of its Jongo multiroom music system.

Jongo T640B comes with built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and packs 100 Watts of room-filling, stereo sound. Ideal as the main audio system in a large living room, Jongo T640B delivers rich, detailed and expansive audio using two custom designed, five inch full-range drive units with dual-concentric tweeters. An optional stand is available to position the speaker in a landscape or portrait orientation to suit any environment and there is also a bracket accessory kit for mounting the speaker on the wall.

Pure's new Jongo A140B wireless hi-fi adapter allows users to transform any audio system, from a simple micro to a high-end hi-fi, into a music streamer and bring it into their multiroom system. Like all Jongo family products, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are integrated, and Jongo A140B comes with a high-quality 24-bit DAC (digital to analogue converter), optical and coaxial digital and dual phono analogue audio outputs.

All Jongo products come in black, or white with black speaker grills, and all have optional user-fit colored grill packs or clip on covers in burnt orange, lime green, mango or white. The Pure Jongo T640B and the Jongo A140B will be available in the first half of 2013.
