From the world leaders in DAB radio comes Chronos CD - DAB/FM/CD/MP3 Stereo Clock Radio.
|Chronos CD |
The Chronos CD is an elegant, compact, DAB/CD clock radio, which delivers superb digital-quality audio from its stereo speakers, fitting the maximum audio performance into the minimum space.
Chronos CD has easy-to-use bedside features including four completely independent alarms that can be set for weekdays, weekends, daily or as one offs – each with the choice of waking up to either DAB digital radio, FM, CD or a simple tone alarm.
A sleep timer allows you to drop off to your favourite station and the all-important snooze button is easy to find, with an adjustable snooze time for an extra lie-in when you deserve it.
The light sensor adjusts the display brightness to suit the ambient light in your room, and handy front-panel connectors enable you to play an iPod/MP3 player through the stereo speakers and to connect headphones.
For the ultimate in convenience, Chronos CD is supplied with its own infrared remote control so you can operate all of the main functions and features even if it is on the other side of the bedroom.
Whether you want to listen to your favourite audio or MP3 CD in the kitchen or wake to crystal-clear DAB radio in the bedroom, Chronos CD is the perfect choice.

|With Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) you’ll discover a broader range of music, debate and ideas, all in crystal clear digital sound.|
Digital radios are much easier to use than analogue radios because they automatically search for all available stations. Once the radio has found all the available stations you just choose the one you want by name. No more trying to remember frequencies.
Wider Station Choice
With up to 55 DAB stations available in many areas, and more on the way, you’ll be spoilt for choice. As well as existing favourites like BBC radios 1-4, BBC radio 5 live, Classic FM and talkSPORT, there are also great exclusive-to-digital stations such as BBC 1Xtra, BBC 5 live Sports Extra, BBC 6 Music, BBC 7 and Planet Rock.
Digital Sound Quality
DAB is crackle-clear and hiss-free because it’s not subject to the same interference as analogue radio.
There's more listening choice on DAB too. These great stations and many more are available in the UK on DAB digital radio. As DAB coverage varies, remember to check which stations are available in your area.
Adjustable Sleep and Snooze Timers
Automatic Brightness Control
MP3 or WMA

Very pleased with the purchase. Don't forget to order a 3.5mm Aux connector lead so that you can choose to listen (and wake up to) your Ipod/ MP3 player aswell as DAB, FM, CD, MP3 CD.
Great sound with little distortion from such a small unit. CD sound is clear and has plenty of bass.
DAB signal is strong and display is very clear.
Handy autotune takes hassle out of homing in on over 50 stations.
Remote control sometimes takes a few presses to respond and has limited range.
Buttons on the radio front need a firm press to activate.
Overall a good value for money product that is well designed. Good looks and good sound too. Highly recommended.
I was desperate to find something compact, which ran off ONE plug and which would have an auxiliary access point for an mp3 player cable (we have three different mp3 players in our house - none of them iPod). Incorporated DAB radio was also high on my wish list - if the thing looked half-way decent I would also be happy. The cassette player was not an issue :)
Enter the PURE Chronos CD DAB:
Radio (DAB & FM);
CD player (which plays mp3 CDs but the random play algorithm is iffy);
Auxiliary port for mp3 player cable (lets any mp3 play);
bonus points as the unit arrived with the clock set to the right time and all the radio presets set.
The only fly in the ointment is the sound quality. The hi-fi has a fulsome, meaty sound with good bass, the Chronos is comparatively light and thin even after playing around with settings. The volume is good and is more than adequate for the room size.
Sound purists will have issues with this, but from my point of view the functionality, style and size of the PURE Chronos is marvellous.
It's hard to fault this machine, as it does everything it says it will, which is quite a lot. Because it has so many options though, like being able to choose different alarm volumes on several different alarms, it's a bit of a rigmarole to go through checking you've set everything correctly. All this is what I wanted though, so I can't grumble. Both Brightness and Contrast of the display can be tweeked to your hearts content and the light sensor dims it all automatically when you turn your room lights out.
This is no boom box though, don't expect a deep, rich sound. It is very clear though, far from tinny and probably better than that of many clock radios. I think the only potentially annoying thing about this machine is the very slow rising of the CD lid - press eject and then go check out your crows feet in a mirror or something - by which time, if like me you have more than a few to check out, it will have fully opened!
Delivery was wonderful - I opted for the free super-saver delivery, as there was no particular urgency. Quite unexpectedly though, it arrived at 7pm one evening, (if memory serves) 48 hours after ordering and approximately 48 hours before it was even due to be dispatched - can't fault that!
If you have to be woken by an alarm every day like me (which I'm sure has a slow ill-effect on your day/week/life), it's worth spending £80+ to be woken by calming music of your choice and have all the other advantages of this machine.
Amazon and PURE both fab!
