London, UK, 5th January 2011: PURE, the world leading radio maker, presents Contour, a stereo internet-connected digital radio and media streamer with retractable iPod/iPhone dock which stands out as much for its looks as it does for its powerful audio delivery.

With an SRP of £199.99, Contour is the seventh member of PURE’s growing internet-connected Flow range and like the award-winning AVANTI Flow incorporates PURE’s Clearsound™ technology*, which delivers clear dynamic audio, higher volume levels and low power consumption. Contour has been designed with an acoustically tuned and sealed cabinet with dual bass ports to deliver unparalleled volume, clarity and response from 18 KHz down to less than 50 Hz.

Contour also includes video outputs (component, S-Video and composite) to allow users to view YouTube videos and videos stored on their iPhone or iPod on their TV.

Using a Wi-Fi connection, Contour enables the user to stream their digital music collection from a Wi-Fi enabled computer or media server. Thousands of internet radio stations and on demand programmes from around the world can also be streamed on Contour through the Wi-Fi connection. Also available via PURE’s online portal, The Lounge (www.thelounge.com) is a unique selection of ambient PURE Sounds for relaxation and FlowSongs*, PURE’s ground-breaking, cloud-based music service that allows the user to identify (tag) tracks playing on any radio station and buy them directly from any PURE radio with Flow technology.

Featuring a stylish black crescent shape with silver surround, backlit touch-sensitive controls and smooth, clean lines, Contour will stand out in any room.

Part of Apple’s “Made for iPod” and “Made for iPhone” programmes, Contour comes with a retractable iPod/ iPhone dock with smooth damped movement and a fully featured remote control. Other features include DAB, FM, a 3.5mm auxiliary input for an iPod/ MP3 player, 3.5mm stereo headphone output, USB connector for software upgrades or optional Ethernet adaptor and 3.5mm component video / s-video output and RCA composite video output.
