At the same time, the company has released “Pure Stream” which allows Android and iOS users to wirelessly play music and several technologies of digital radio audio on a growing number of Pure devices. Pure Stream enables users to stream music stored on their personal device as well as Internet radio streams and on-demand content like podcasts.
“Someday we’ll wonder why we ever had to physically connect devices,” said Pure Director of U.S. Sales Noam Meppen.
The Sensia 200D Connect is one of the first devices compatible with the Pure Stream, with more devices to follow throughout the year, including support for the recently announced Contour 200i Air.
Listing for $449, the Sensia 200D Connect can decode DAB/DAB+ and DMB Radio technology, as well as analog FM and Internet audio streams. The device features USB input and output connectors and an internal Wi-Fi antenna as well as a telescopic antenna.
The 5.7-inch color touchscreen displays visuals relevant to the audio, including internet radio slideshow and album artwork according to the company. Users can also view weather reports, Twitter feeds, Facebook updates, RSS feeds and photos via Wi-Fi or Picasa.
The company says that the Sensia 200D Connect supports instant and timed recording of live Internet radio to USB memory stick. Users touch the “record” button on the touchscreen or the dedicated “record” button on the remote control or set as many as three timers to record regular programs.
Other features include an input for an iPod/MP3 player; two alarms; countdown timer; sleep timer and a headphone jack.
