PURE Contour iPhone/iPod Dock and Internet Radio Review


If you store your music on an iPhone or iPod and also enjoy internet radio, the PURE Contour is a one of the nicer speaker systems that I've had the opportunity to review. It offers a dock for playing the music on an iPhone/iPod while also charging its...

Good sound ; Lots of audio options: iPod, Internet and network

Touch buttons for volumes are erratic ; Knit material over speaker show's lint and dust ; Remote does not allow iPhone/iPod menu navigation

Pure Contour 200Di Air review


It's a strange situation where a £200 speaker is considered 'budget', but that's the price you pay for AirPlay

Good quality sound ; Easy to set up AirPlay ; Decent price for AirPlay enabled speakers

Basic controls ; Not great sound quality

Slick design, compact footprint, easy to use, great audio

Slightly temperamental touch controls

Room-filling audio, internet radio, music library streaming from your laptop, a pop-out iPod dock, a very cool design and a reasonable price tag make this a good buy

Pure Contour Review


Philips and Logitech are long-standing players in the network audio market, but there's a new kid in town. Step forward The Contour.

The design of the PURE Contour won’t be to everyone’s taste, but the audio quality is decent, the combination of DAB, FM, internet radio and iPod playback, plus of course the FlowSongs and The Lounge features distinguish it from the standard Wi-Fi iPod...

PURE Contour Internet Radio


As this is the first internet radio I've had, I cannot assess the comparative quality of the product. But on its own, I am satisfied with rich sound quality. Controls are fairly intuitive, but takes a bit of time setting up favorite channels of the...
