AirPlay now available with PURE

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

The newest addition to the PURE Contour family is the Contour 200i Air. It is a compact but surprisingly powerful digital music system featuring ‘AirPlay’ which is Apple’s wireless streaming technology, and a dock for iPod, iPhone or iPad.

‘AirPlay’ enables the user to stream music wirelessly throughout their home, easily and simply. Music or radio station broadcasts can be streamed from a compatible Apple device, or from iTunes to the Contour 200i Air using a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection. ‘AirPlay’ enables the streaming of high quality audio and two-way synchronization – this means that the volume can be altered on either device and it will change on both accordingly. The clever thing about this new audio product is that it enables users to set up a multiroom wireless speaker system, simply put a Contour 200i Air in any room and you can send audio to them all simultaneously – this means that you don’t have to spend thousands of pounds on a speaker system for your home.

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Just in time for Christmas, PURE have launched a new docking station for iPod and iPhones. The PURE Contour 100Di is the baby sister of the PURE Contour, and it is great.

The Contour 100Di is a compact dock with DAB and FM radio which offers brilliant, powerful sound for an affordable price. It features a revolving dock, petite remote control with magnetic remote tidy, two alarms and sleep and snooze timers.

Unlike the PURE Contour, the Contour 100Di doesn’t feature Wi-Fi capabilities, but don’t let that put you off. If you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or an iPad you can download the PURE Lounge app which enables users to listen to world radio stations, podcasts, listen again content and PURE sounds. The app turns the Contour 100Di into a Wi-Fi audio system without braking the bank.

Soundcast Outcast Wireless Speaker

Soundcast Outcast Wireless Speaker

The daffodils are out, it’s official, spring is here and summer is on the way.

If you’re looking forward to barbecues and outdoor parties then the Soundcast Outcast wireless speaker could be the ultimate garden accessory for you. An outdoor speaker which you don’t have to remember to bring at the end of the night.

It’s big, at a metre tall it is robust and feels like it’s built to last. Although it is called portable we don’t think you’ll be moving it around much as it weighs 40lbs. It has an internally charged battery pack which will last 10 hours per charge and the unit can continue to work if it’s plugged in. The Outcast comes with an iCast docking station (which can also be used to charge the your iPod.

It is completely weather proof (outer is plastic) so you don’t need to worry about bring it indoors in the event of a shower, Soundcast have demo’ed this by putting it through a carwash and it kept playing.

As well as coming with an iCast docking station (which isn’t weather proof so lave it indoors) the Outcast includes the ability to remote control the ipod from the speaker. You can also jack a player directly into the Outcast, handy if you want to use one of your guests’ players.

Overall the Outcast’ sound output quality is impressive and it has a great range. If you are looking for an robust outdoor speaker you won’t be going too far wrong with the Outcast. We saw great demand for it last year and we’re expecting the same again this year.

If you’re interested in finding out more have a look at the the product page at: Go-Electrical or check out the Soundcast website.
