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
"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.

single or multiroom environment. Bluetooth is included for more
informal, one-to-one streaming whic
h is ideal for use in the garden

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
