The Jongo sys­tem isn’t shiny and new like Denon HEOS, but the ‘X’ marks a re­fresh. There’s the coolly re­fresh­ing ice-coloured speaker grille on the white speak­ers, but more re­fresh­ing still are the tweaks they’ve been given

by the boffins in Pure’s R&D depart­ment. The setup process has been sim­pli­fied, and thanks to Pure’s Caskeid tech­nol­ogy the whole Jongo sys­tem can now in­tel­li­gently pick up on what you were last play­ing and re­sume it when you’re back in the room. As mul­ti­room sys­tems go, Pure con­tin­ues to win the value-for-money gong.

from £100 ($205) / pure.com Heos, the Greek god of wire­less mul­ti­room audio, has sided with Denon to cre­ate a set-up that’s aimed squarely at (and slightly pricier than) Sonos. There are three types, with in­creas­ingly so­phis­ti­cated speaker set-ups but the same con­nec­tiv­ity: Wi-Fi, Eth­er­net or aux-in, with an iOS/An­droid app in con­trol. The ‘3’ stands hor­i­zon­tally or ver­ti­cally, the ‘5’ and ‘7’ on their longer edge. There’s also the HEOS Amp and the Link, with line-level out­puts for your own amp, while the Ex­tend cre­ates a bridge con­nec­tion for the fur­ther reaches of your man­sion. from £250 ($515) / denon.co.uk
