With the Jongo Wireless Music System you can stream music and radio via your smartphone or tablet to listen wherever you go, inside or out.

Jongo_S3(S340B)_Burnt_Orange_PartyThe smallest of our Jongo speakers, the S3, is a portable, wireless speaker, that comes with four audio settings including outdoor boost for the best effect in every environment. This is great for anyone who loves to be outdoors and enjoy their music- or those who host BQQs, parties and get togethers.

Jongo_T2_Mango_Front

Or, for those that want something that will fit in any room, the Jongo T2 offers rich sound and versatile listening. They can create a Jongo system to suit them perfectly, starting with one or two speakers and they can add more whenever they want.

Cut outsAnyone who has an existing hi-fi that they’re rather attached to, would be pleased with our A2. Small and perfectly formed, you simply plug the A2 straight into an existing set up and allows you to stream from any device through the hi-fi speakers.

Our T4 and T6 are the two largest speakers in the range, boasting loads of power and amazing sound. They can also be paired and over 20 million tracks are available for streaming on Pure Connect.

So anyone who loves music, and loves it to sound good, will be more than happy with a member of our Jongo family under the tree this year!

Pure announces support for digital music libraries stored on PCs, MAC, or NAS via its Pure Connect app

Stream your digital music collection through Pure’s Jongo multiroom music system

Jongo_Family_iPhoneTablet

The Pure Connect app for iOS or Android has been updated to allow users to wirelessly stream music stored on their computer to multiple Jongo speakers.

The new update enables users to enjoy their entire digital music collection through the Jongo multiroom music system via the Pure Connect app regardless of whether it’s stored on their smartphone, tablet, PC, Mac or network attached storage device.

Says Nick Hucker, Pure’s marketing director: “Consumption of digital music is reaching a tipping point with more music fans consuming audio via digital files than physical formats and they increasingly want to be able to access their digital music collection wirelessly regardless of where it’s stored. This new update delivers that flexibility and will enable users to enjoy their music collection throughout their homes at the touch of a button.”

Jongo Bells, Jongo Bells, Jongo all the way……….

House party series – part 4

Jongo family with app

The countdown really begins now that we have a matter of weeks to go until the Christmas season is upon us. Want to invite friends around and liven up your living room with a few heart warming tunes?

The Jongo multiroom system is the perfect companion for throwing a party. You can’t be in all the rooms all of the time rigging up a wired sound system for a house party- this can prove messy.NEW

If you have a pair of T2, T4 or T6 speakers, why not separate them and have one in the kitchen and another in the living room?  You can even control the volume of the speakers individually. For example, lower the volume in the kitchen where most people congregate to chat and play it louder elsewhere. No more will the host have to stand by the music system for the duration of the party and stop what they’re doing when a request is made. They can simply tap their phone and select a track from wherever they are in the house. Your phone or tablet is the remote control.

To blast out those Christmas favourites why not try Jongo’s built-in stereo pairing feature and take advantage of the perfectly synchronised audio? By adding more speakers into the mix, an S3 on the stairs, a T2 in the bedroom you can really get the party started. Of course the S3 is portable too so there’s always the option to take the speaker outside.

So come on –  IT’S CHRISTMAS……!
