The music streaming system is Pure’s first Apple AirPlay product.
Users can play their music wirelessly via a Mac or Windows computer, iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch without having to dock the device.
Contour 200i Air also includes a dock for charging an iPad, iPhone and iPod, as well as music playback.
Pure Sales Director Peter Blampied says Contour 200i Air is one of the first products with Apple AirPlay to include Wi-Fi login sharing, meaning the device should be easy to set-up. To do so a user docks the iOS device, which is connected to a home Wi-Fi network, presses the Wi-Fi setup button on the back of Contour 200i Air and accepts a message displayed on the iOS device asking whether he wants to “share Wi-Fi settings.”
“Someday we’ll wonder why we ever had to physically connect devices, and Apple AirPlay is leading that behavioral shift,” said Blampied. For the less adventurous, the 200i also compatible with standard Ethernet.
Pure’s Contour 200i lists for $269 and is available now from Brookstone, Amazon.com and Pure.
