Pure Puts Punch Behind Its New Jongo Multiroom Music System With Two New 
Wireless Speakers; Launches Proprietary Music Service in the US 
Jongo Multiroom Expanded at Walmart and Best Buy 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/13 --  Pure is expanding
its Jongo multiroom music system with two additional wireless
speakers and a new Pure Connect on-demand music streaming service.
The new family of speakers benefit from Pure's excellence in audio,
streaming and sychronization technology making Jongo one of the most
advanced multiroom speaker systems available.  
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. Users can simply choose any
combination of Jongo speakers to build a powerful system and listen
to beautifully synchronized music in a single or multiroom
environment. Currently, one of the only systems to offer both
wireless multiroom and casual Bluetooth streaming, Jongo offers users
the best of both worlds. 
The full Jongo multiroom speaker system will be available on the
shelves from October at 2,800 Walmart stores and Walmart.com, in
addition to approximately 300 Best Buy locations and can be
pre-ordered now online at Amazon.com. 
Enhancing the product experience, Pure is also announcing the US
availability of its on-demand music streaming service to Pure
Connect, allowing users to discover, explore and stream millions of
music tracks. The music service, which will be available in
September, also includes a premium option for offline listening
allowing users to download playlists to their mobile devices and
listen without relying on the mobile network, ideal for listening to
favorite tracks on the move. There are now three services to choose
from -- a free service (Pure Connect Green), which gives users access
to over 20,000 radio stations and in excess of 200,000 free on-demand
programs and podcasts, a $4.99 per month service (Pure Connect Blue),
which allows users to stream over 15 million tracks and a $9.99 per
month service (Pure Connect Violet) for the addition of offline
"We know that customers are looking for the convenience that wireless
streaming offers with high quality audio that a system like Jongo
provides," said Noam Meppen, Pure's Director of Sales, US. "We have
designed Jongo to be as flexible as possible with a range of colors
and sizes to suit different rooms and a variety of ways to mount and
position the speakers so they fit seamlessly into the home
environment. It's also important to us that our customers can find,
discover and enjoy any music they want, which is why we've added the
music service to Pure Connect giving users the choice to listen to
what they want, when they want, wherever they are; a truly versatile
Jongo T6 ($349.00 MAP) is a powerful wireless speaker bringing
room-filling, detailed sound to the Jongo wireless multiroom family.
The T6 uses dual concentric loudspeakers and two premium 5.25 inch
full range drivers which have been hand tuned by Pure's audio experts
to achieve full range audio with excellent phase control and depth.  
Jongo T2 ($149.00 MAP) is the ideal Jongo speaker for everyday living
and delivers highly efficient Class D audio through 3" mid-range
drivers. All components are hand selected by Pure's audio engineers
to achieve the best possible sonic performance, energy efficiency and
Stands and wall mounting accessories: An optional stand is available
for each Jongo T speaker allowing users to position their speaker in
a portrait position and the Pure badge can be rotated so it is
perfectly aligned. The stand, which is available in black and white,
also enables the speakers to be tilted in four different positions to
get the most out of the audio depending on its location. Portrait and
landscape sound profiles have been carefully created for each speaker
by Pure's audio experts and these can be selected via the Pure
Connect app for an optimum sound experience. Jongo T2 can also be
wall mounted via specially designed brackets.  
Stereo pairing**: All Jongo speakers feature unparalleled
synchronization technology, which allows users to create an immersive
stereo audio experience, simply by pairing two of the same speakers
in a room. Jongo T2 and T6 speakers come with this feature already
loaded and Jongo S3 can be upgraded with a free software update.
Setting up stereo paring couldn't be easier; users simply use the
Pure Connect app on their smartphone or tablet to 'pair' two S3, T2
or T6 speakers. Multiple speaker pairs can be set up within one
household, which is ideal for larger rooms. Having a range of speaker
sizes allows customers to pair smaller speakers such as the T2 and
then combine them with a bigger Jongo speaker such as the T6 in a
larger room to distribute and enjoy perfectly balanced sound
experience at their leisure. Treble and bass control has also been
added to the new version of the app**.  
All Jongo products work with the free companion Pure Connect app for
iPad, iPhone and Android allowing users to listen to multiple
products in a single room, or multiple rooms. Jongo uses Wi-Fi to
stream perfectly synchronized audio within a single or multiroom
environment, while Bluetooth allows users to stream content from any
audio app on their smartphone or tablet, including locally stored
music, to a single Jongo product. Users can simply add extra Jongo
speakers or adapters on the same Wi-Fi network to build their
multiroom system. 
The Jongo multiroom speaker system has been designed to stand out and
is available in a range of on-trend colors. New colors will be
introduced so customers can easily update their speakers to match
their decor or mood. Users can choose from a black, or piano (white
with black covers) base unit and then purchase clip on covers in
burnt orange, lime green or mango (from $19.99 MAP) to match their
home color scheme and other Jongo products. 
Select Pure products including Sensia 200D Connect and One Flow are
compatible with and can be used to control the Jongo multiroom music
