Does the Jongo speaker ecosystem stand out in a crowded field?
Multi-room audio compatibility is a key metric for wireless sound systems these days. The entry cost into a house-spanning system can be problematic for many buyers, with many mid-range systems costing many thousands of dollars for even a small installation. Pure has a solution -- the Jongo speaker system. We've lived with a few Jongo T2 speakers for a while now. How well does the system perform, and when up against higher-end competitors, how does it stand up? Read our review to find out!
New 50W speaker sits between existing T2, T6 offerings
Pure is expanding its Pure Connect platform today at CES so its Jongo wireless stereo and multiroom music system can be used with any music streaming service -- including Pandora, iTunes Radio, Rdio, Deezer and Spotify, as well as any audio or radio app. Additionally, it has also unveiled an addition to its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speaker line with the new high-end T4 wireless speaker.
New Evoke F4 compatible with rest of Jongo whole-house speaker line
Audio purveyor Pure is debuting the Evoke F4, an Internet and FM radio with Bluetooth and the ability to stream multiroom audio entertainment, including content from SiriusXM Radio (with subscription). The new streamer is compatible with Pure's Jongo multiroom music system, and in conjunction with other speakers in the series, enables users to listen to synchronized music throughout their home.
Modular wireless speakers use Wi-Fi, Bluetooth for communications
Pure is expanding its Jongo multiroom music system with two additional wireless speakers and a new Pure Connect on-demand music streaming service. The two new wireless multiroom speakers, Jongo T2 and Jongo T6, come in different sizes and mounting options and join the line’s first two products –- Jongo S3, a rechargeable, portable wireless speaker and Jongo A2, a wireless hi-fi adapter. Any combination of Jongo speakers can be used to play synchronized music in a single or multiroom environment.
Flexible system uses Wi-Fi or Bluetooth
Pure recently announced several products destined for the US market, the Jongo modular audio system. The lineup enables users to enjoy synchronized audio in several rooms throughout the home, streamed from iOS or Android devices and manageable through dedicated apps. Electronista stopped by Pure's booth at CES to experience the new system ahead of its official release.
Single-speaker base expanable as users' need grow
Today at CES 2013, Pure announced the Jongo family of products -- 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 a home. Using Wi-Fi along with the free Pure Connect app, users also get the additional benefit of listening to multiple, tightly synchronised Jongo products in a single room or in a multi-room environment.
