    I have had this unit for 2 weeks now and I love it. This unit was bought to go in our kitchen and the main reasons I bought the Contour rather than any other unit were

    1) ipod dock for my wifes iPod - easily charge it and easy for her to play some none radio music through decent speakers
    2) decent speakers - the tech specs of this unit are up to date but in laymans terms... it chucks out a load of ooomph when you turn it up :)
    3) internet radio (for those times when DAB signal is poor and to occasionally listen to foreign language radio)

    The Contour has exceeded expectations - i love it. I also have a Buffalo NAS (Network Attached Storage) disk Buffalo LinkStation Live 2.0Tb DLNA Certified MultiMedia Network Storage with BitTorrent on my network which is a DLNA media streamer. I have copied all my iTunes music onto the NAS unit and also written out the playlists (which are plain text .m3u files that can be edited if required) and put these on the NAS too. Via its wireless connection the Contour happily "sees" the NAS DLNA media server (as well as the Windows Media Servers active on various PCs in the house). I now have access to my whole music collection and can put together playlists at will to more easily have a music selection available at a few button presses in the kitchen (the NAS is in the loft). Ironically this means that we haven't bothered using the iPod dock because I have that and more available via the NAS.

    Firstly delivery, I ordered my Pure Contour (free supersaver delivery) at 8pm on Friday and it arrived at 12pm Monday...well done Amazon.

    I am so pleased with this product. I agonized for weeks; reading professional reviews, customer feedback and speaking to friends before I finally opted for the Pure Contour and I am so pleased I made this choice. I previously had an Intempo RDI which was fabulous at first but sadly wouldn't recognise my mobile phone after I upgraded and then (a month after the warranty expired) stopped working altogether.

    The Contour has a beautiful sound quality (with plenty of volume) and works perfectly on all of its various platforms. I have an iPhone 4 and have had no problems accessing and playing music from it. The menus are quick and intuitive and it is very easy to select tracks via the Contour's remote control. There is no interference and no need to put the phone into airplane mode.

    The digital radio tuned in quickly as soon as I switched it on and the reception and sound quality are better than anything I've used before.

    The internet radio was also surprisingly easy to set up...it took 2 or 3 minutes to program my WiFi access code and then I was quickly able to sort through the thousands of stations and select the ones I was most interested in. Likewise it is a breeze to select a podcast or 'listen again' programme. Surprisingly, to me, the sound quality is as good as the digital radio.

    I've only had this product for a few hours and I am already in love with it...it isn't cheap at nearly £180 but it is worth every penny...I would happily recommend it to anyone (even my Mum who is a complete technophone...Lol)

    4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By PF Cope TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 14 May 2013
    Purchased as a gift (not from Amazon though) and, having the oportunity to test before hand, I was impressed with it's quality of reproduction especially as it was obtained at a considerably lower price than it is currently being sold. However, when it was being used by it's recipient on a daily basis, it became apparent that this dock/radio seems to be somewhat ill conceived especially given that it has been in production for some 2 years.
    The touch controls seemed to work when they feet like it, the control structure was over complicated, the sliding dock would tip the unit forward unless held with a finger at it's base when installing an ipod and the dock would sometimes fail to register that an ipod was installed. Furthermore, preset radio stations would be lost even though there had been no disruption to it's power supply.
    All of the above was dispite updating the software prior to use, and a number of resets.
    Needless to say, the unit was returned and a refund obtained. Looking through the reviews for the Contour, a number of customers complain of some or all of the points I raise which is supprising given the production run, and I find it amazing that a product thus affected could be marketed as a finished product.

    I've had previous pure radios,the contour is another
    brilliant product! Set up was easy. I took a long time to
    choose which one, nearly bought a Roberts but
    cancelled as iPhone had to be in airplane
    Mode which would have been pointless for my requirements!
    My IPhone works perfectly in 3G with no issues!!
    The sound quality is tremendous, lots of volume. Internet radio useful too.
    Listen to my music on iPhone so much more now!
