Pure boosts whole-house stereo system with Jongo T4 speaker, dev kit

updated 06:34 pm EST, Mon January 6, 2014

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.

Pure is enabling universal streaming in the Jongo line through two initiatives. The first uses its proprietary Caskeid technology to seamlessly deliver app content to multiple speakers using a unique combination of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Users simply select their chosen music or radio service app, and send it via Bluetooth to a single Jongo speaker in a group. The Caskeid technology integrated into the Jongo speakers takes care of ensuring that music is then seamlessly and synchronously sent to all the speakers in the group. The session and speaker configuration is set up using the Pure Connect App.

Additionally, to make Jongo's advanced capabilities fully accessible to music services, Pure will also release a Caskeid App Developer Kit (ADK) for developers, which will enable agnostic app support over Wi-Fi for Jongo. The new T4 speaker is a 50-watt device, coming in between the previously released T2 and T6. Wi-Fi connectivity is through 802.11b/g, and is supported by WEP, or WPA/WPA2. Additionally, A2DP Bluetooth is supported for casual streaming.

The Jongo T4 will be available before the end of the month, and retails for $299.
