A multi-room music system from Pure

Boot Camp feature for Friday, August 16, 2013

A multi-room music system from Pure.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It’s called Jongo, a multi-room music system from British based Pure, designed to take on the likes of Sonos and others.     The little Jongo S3 speakers are controlled with apps on your smartphone…iOS and Android.   One of the nice features are the rechargeable batteries …that let you take the speakers outside.   Director of U.S. Sales Noam Meppen…

“It has a ten hour battery in it.  It functions off of Bluetooth as well as multi-room WiFi capability.  So you can put one, two or up to as many as you want to really, throughout your home, connect them to your home WiFi network, and they’re all able to play music playback synchronized throughout your house.

The music source selections are good, but not as varied as those offered by Sonos.    The Jongo S3 has the edge in price at about 200 dollars.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
