4.0 out of 5 stars Works for me..., 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pure Contour 200i Wireless Digital Music System with AirPlay and Docking Station Speaker for iPad 1 2 3 / Iphone 1 2 3 3gs 4 4s / Ipod Touch Classic Nano (Electronics)
On the whole I am pleased with the Pure Contour 200i Air speaker.
As some of the other reviewers have mentioned the sound output is heavy on the base, however for my needs (speaker in the kitchen) it's adequate and compliments my AppleTV hooked up to the entertainment system in the living room.
It should be noted that multi-play on more than one Airplay speaker can only be sourced from iTunes on your PC/MAC, iOS does not support Airplay multi-speakers, however by using the Remote app on your device and remotely accessing the PC/MAC iTunes library multi-speaker output can be achieved via your Apple device.
I have an iPhone 4S iOS5.1.1 and the Airplay wireless connection to my BT Homehub 3 is flawless, very stable with no drops outs. The wireless set up is straightforward with clear instructions in the accompanying Owners Manual. The speaker and wireless connection is always `On' and easily available from the list of speakers on iTunes or the device within the Airplay "button". During set up the name of the speaker can be changed for ease of id.
The supplied remote has a number of useful features and works well, handy for volume control amongst other functions; the battery (CR2025) is easily accessible in the event of change.
The speaker itself has weight and feels substantial. It has a rubber footing on the base that suppresses any vibration.
I have a silicone skin cover on my iPhone 4S and I do not have remove this when docking into the speaker, which by the way has a very positive connection and when docked my iPhone charges up.
It is approx 36cm/14" in width and 23cm/9" high. The button on top LHS switches between Standby and Sleep and On, however the speaker status will auto wake up when it recognises Airplay from the device/PC/MAC. On the RHS on top you'll find three buttons: Mute, Volume Down and Volume Up.
On the front of the speaker, to the left of the docking point you'll find the unobtrusive status LED which can be seen through the speaker mesh, it's multi-functional with 7 different colours and light activity depending on status; these are defined in the Owners Manual.
Its mains powered only.
As I say suits my needs with good features and no connection issues, if I had more control of the bass output I would give it 5 stars, hence a 4 star rating.
