CES 2013: Pure Jongo wireless system adds new T640B speaker and A140B hi-fi adapter
Pure has expanded its new Jongo multiroom music system, with the launch of the T640B wireless stereo speaker and the Jongo A140B hi-fi adapter.
Jongo is Pure's new family of wireless speakers, which allow you to build a system to send music around multiple rooms in your home, starting from one speaker, the Jongo S340B, at £150.
The new additions, unveiled today at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, are led by a larger, more powerful speaker, the Jongo T640B.

The speaker costs £250 and comes with built-in Bluetooth and WiFi and delivers 100 watts of power.
Billed as the main speaker in a Jongo multiroom system (if we say the name enough times, we might get used to it), the T640B has two custom designed 5in drivers with dual-concentric tweeters.
There's an optional stand for putting the speaker in landscape or portrait - sounds a bit like the Sonos Play 3 speaker, no? - and also an optional wall bracket.

The wireless hi-fi adapter meanwhile allows you to add your existing system to a Jongo multiroom set-up.
The £100 A140B wireless adapter connects to any hi-fi system or amplifier, with dual phono analogue audio outputs, digital coaxial and optical connections and a 24-but DAC built-in.
The adapter has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, like all the Pure Jongo products, allowing you to choose how you stream your music.
Pure Jongo: How it works
Connect via Bluetooth and you can stream any content from any audio app on your smartphone or tablet to a Jongo speaker system.
If using WiFi you can use the Pure Connect app to stream locally stored content on your phone or tablet and choose from a number of on-demand programmes and podcasts.
You can also sign up to the Pure Music service, Pure's Spotify-style subscription service available on all the company's streaming products.
The Pure Jongo family of products now includes the Jongo S340B speaker, £150, the Jongo T640B speaker, £250, and the Jongo A140B hi-fi adapter, £100.
The new Pure Jongo speakers are due out later this year, the Jongo S340B is on sale now.
