Do you prefer listening to euphonious tunes through winsomely devised music players or do you prefer a simpler, yet high tech music player that will play your favorite tunes and also allow you to access to internet radio ? Well, whatever the urge is – the new addition to Pure 200 Series hits the bull’s eye. After pleasing users with the feature-packed Contour 200i, the company has now announced their latest Pure Sensia 200D Connect model.
At an MSRP of $449, the PURE Sensia 200D Connect delivers upgraded performance, room-filling audio and one touch and timed USB recording, and a host of additional features. It will be available in North America from April 2012 but is being exclusively previewed at the International CES 2012 show in Las Vegas from January 10-13th.
Displayed during this year’s CES, the new touchscreen DAB radio features a neat 5.7-inch 640 x 480 resolution color display. The compact, stylish device allows users to effortlessly stream their music over the Internet and surf the web with unprecedented ease and comfort. The considerable touchscreen, on the other hand, lets social networking buffs access Facebook and Twitter.
Pure Music, Pure’s cloud-based on-demand music service and Pure Tag, a unique, free, tagging service, are seamlessly integrated into the Sensia 200D Connect. Pure Music allows subscribers to discover, explore and listen to millions of music tracks for a monthly subscription, and keeps the user’s favourites and playlists synchronised across Pure’s range of wireless music systems, PCs, Macs and smartphones/tablets running the free** companion iOS or Android Pure Lounge App. Pure Tag is a free service that allows users to bookmark tracks they hear on the radio, and subsequently explore around those tracks via the powerful search and recommendation facilities of the PURE Lounge (www.thelounge.com/us), to discover more about the artists and their back catalogue, podcasts, or even branch out and discover similar and related artists.
Though the framework catches most of an observer’s attention, the Sensia 200D Connect from Pure earns wings for delivering a sound and enriching user experience. With the new touchscreen digital radio around, users can also glance through station slideshows or weather reports and view their favorite photos from Picasa. Doused in sheer black enclosure, the peripheral puts forth 30W RMS of digital sound via DSP tuned class D amplifiers. The integrated twin speakers help serve the similar purpose.
Sensia 200D Connect is destined to be a central feature of any room with a distinctive, elliptical shape and comes in striking black or white versions. A moulded stand is supplied, which allows the user to angle the radio to an optimum viewing position and a matching remote control completes the look.
Other features include an input for an iPod/MP3 player; two fully featured alarms; countdown timer; sleep timer and a headphone socket. Add the optional rechargeable Pure F1 ChargePAK to listen to internet content anywhere within range of the Wi-Fi network or to FM radio when further afield.
