CES: Pure launches Contour i200 Air, Sensia 200D Connect

Apple AirPlay compatible wireless audio system includes dock for iOS devices

Pure has announced the Pure Contour i200 Air and the Sensia 200D Connect at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The device, which costs £199.99, is compatible with Apple's AirPlay technology so will support wireless streaming from iOS devices as well as Macs and Windows-based PCs.

Additionally it includes a dock for iOS devices that will let you recharge the device while you play music. It connects to your home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and is capable of producing 36W RMS.

"Some day we'll wonder why we ever had to physically connect devices and Apple AirPlay is leading that behavioural seachange," said Colin Crawford, director of marketing at Pure.

"There is nothing to beat the convenience of sitting back in your armchair to control your music collection with your iPad or iPhone, while the music itself is played beautifully and powerfully by the Contour Air i200."

The Contour Air i200 is also compatible with the Pure Lounge app which offers access to internet radio stations and on demand content through the subscription-based Pure Music service.

The Sensia 200D Connect is a touchscreen wireless music system and is the successor to the original Pure Sensia.

It costs £249.99 and will be available in the UK at some time in the first quarter of 2012, Pure said. It has a large capacitive touchscreen and can stream music over Wi-Fi from your Mac or NAS device and also connects to the Pure Music service.

It supports instant and timed recording of internet and digital radio to a USB memory stick and has an iPod input as well.
