World Radio Day: Pure announces StreamR Splash

Share

Today sees the celebration of World Radio Day, taking place on the anniversary of the founding of United Nations Radio on February 13th 1946, 

To mark the occasion, Pure announces the launch of the StreamR Splash, the smaller sibling to the recently launched StreamR– creating a range of smart radios with DAB+ radio, Bluetooth and Amazon Alexa functionality.

StreamR Splash is available to purchase from the Pure webstore and Amazon from Thursday 13th February priced at £129.99. It is available in a colour choice of Charcoal or Stone Grey.

As well as Bluetooth connectivity, Alexa functionality is provided via the Pure Home app on your phone. Ask the voice assistant to play music from Amazon Music or TuneIn. Bringing together these features in a small , StreamR Splash lets you enjoy your favourite DAB+, FM and internet radio, music and podcasts – at the beach, camping, fishing or anywhere else, claims Pure.

StreamR Splash comes with IP67 water and dustproof classification offering protection from immersion in water with a depth of up to 1 metre for up to 30 minutes. It comes with 20 hours of battery life, a ruggedized design and a detachable bungee cord that lets users attach the speaker to a backpack or tent. 
 


One-touch Alexa

Just like its bigger StreamR sibling, the StreamR Splash is one of the few portable radio and Bluetooth speakers on the market that offers access to the Alexa voice service. The built-in microphone connects to the Pure Home app on your mobile device via Bluetooth, which connects to Alexa.

Pure Home app 

Download the easy-to-use and intuitive Pure Home app to connect your StreamR Splash to Alexa. You can also customise your speaker settings and access product support, plus you’ll be notified of any new software updates.
