Pure's Jongo products can be used on their own or combined with other

Jongo product. Simply add extra Jongo speakers or adapters on the
same Wi-Fi network to build a multiroom system.
"Multiroom audio has never been so accessible and flexible. Pure's
Jongo system in tandem with the Pure Connect app delivers an
incredibly easy way to enjoy your favorite audio content throughout
the home," said Noam Meppen, Pure's Director of Sales, US. "We are
the first to integrate a comprehensive on-demand music and compelling
free radio service, with a range of our own products making the
experience truly seamless. We are approaching a quarter of a million
engaged users of the Pure Connect platform and we believe that the
introduction of Jongo will grow this significantly."
