Pure launches Contour 200i Air AirPlay speaker dock

UK manufacturer hopes to make a splash in the US at CES 2012

Brit favourite Pure is attempting to crack America with the launch of the Contour 200i Air speaker which allows wireless playback via AirPlay on Apple's iOS devices and iTunes-enabled Macs and PCs

Pure has announced a neat-looking, AirPlay enabled speaker dock at the CES Unveiled event in Las Vegas.

The Pure Contour 200i Air speaker allows you to play your musical collection wirelessly through your iTunes-enabled Mac or PC or through iOS devices like the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

The attractive speaker system, which will cost $329 (£213) in the US, also supports physical docking for your device.

According to the official press release, the 200i Air "produces 36W RMS of digital quality sound delivering an expansive, room-filling listening experience. The DSP corrected, high-efficiency audio amplifiers and custom designed 3.5 inch dual full-range speaker drive units ensure exceptional clarity and tonal richness."

The device, which features an LED-display showcasing what you're currently listening to, can be hooked-up to your home-entertainment system and there's also an auxiliary port to plug-in non-Apple MP3 players.

It'll be available to buy from March in North America, while there's no word yet on a UK launch.
