DAB logo

With Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) you’ll discover a broader range of music, debate and ideas, all in crystal clear digital sound.
Many extra stations are available with DAB radio

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.

DAB Stations
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.


Main Features:
Line In

3.5mm input enables you to connect an iPod, MP3 player or portable CD player and use the ONE Classic as a portable speaker

ChargePAK ready

An optional accessory for the ONE Classic, the C6L ChargePAK is a rechargeable battery pack which fits into the battery compartment of your radio and charges when the radio is connected to the mains, so you can take the radio wherever you want. The C6L ChargePAK has the added benefits of being much more economical than regular batteries and significantly kinder to the environment, reducing the quantity of batteries that end up in landfills


Allows you to pause and rewind live radio if you're interrupted so you can listen again

Kitchen Timer

Kitchen Timer
Handy countdown kitchen timer ideal for helping you time your cooking to perfection


Support for station name display on FM and RDS scrolling text

Participating stations broadcast sports, news, or traffic reports which are stored on your radio so they are available on demand. Like Teletext on TVs, you can then search this stored scrolling text by category

Station Presets

Station Presets
30 DAB or FM presets in a combined list to help organise your favourite stations

Headphone Output

Headphone Output

    This is my first DAB radio so I cannot compare the sound with others but I am happy with the sound and feel of the unit.

    Problem 1: The audio settings are lost every time you switch the radio off and on again. The diplay shows the settings from last time but the sound doesn't reflect the settings. I called PURE and they admitted straight away that this is a software error and they were looking to release a software udpate but couldn't say when (or if ever).

    Problem 2: The lowest volume level is not low enough. The difference between mute and the first volume level is quite big and this makes for uncomfortable listening at night.

    The Classic ONE radio has a lower level of sensitivity than the previous (ie original) ONE radio. I already own an original ONE radio and the new Classic ONE model fails to pick up DAB signals even when placed on the same table as the original ONE radio which works perfectly. I have been informed by the Pure Technical Support that the new model IS less sensitive than the original model. I find this reduction in quality totally unacceptable and is opportunistic profiteering. Tell the shop/Amazon that you want to try the performance of this radio in its intended location before the return period expires. Andy

    The Pure One Classic is my first DAB radio. I bought it from Amazon to replace my old Sony portable whose rechargeable batteries forever need changing, frustratingly just when I'm listening to something special! I also bought the Pure ChargePAK which fits inside a compartment in the back of the radio. It costs not much more than 2 sets of 4 rechargeable AA batteries and a charger. Fantastically it recharges whenever the radio is connected to the mains even when the radio is turned off so I keep the radio connected to the mains and simply pull out the plug at the back of the radio when I want to use it as a portable in the bathroom or shed etc.
    The on/off button is the medium size button bottom right in the photo. The large knob is the volume knob.
    To select or set the functions of the radio one simply presses one of the small silver buttons surrounding the large central knob then turn the large central knob clockwise to scroll through the options of that particular button. To select the required option just press the large central knob inwards. - Dead easy!
    The reception is good both in DAB and FM and the sound quality is really good especially when the bass and treble are tweaked to taste. The written instructions are good and clear. I enjoy the scrolling text advising of the current programme.
    I chose the white colour option which fits in very comfortably in the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom - much better than black. It also has a kitchen timer, an alarm function and a socket for playing an MP3 player although I haven't used these yet.

    I find myself listening to this radio much, much more than previously (I'm listening to it now in the background while I'm typing this) and without fear of the batteries running out. I really enjoy this radio. It is a November 2008 Which? magazine Best Buy so you can't really go wrong. I recommend it.

    Verified Purchase
    Got this to augment an original One radio. You now get a line input for your MP3 player, a rubbery finish, supposedly better battery life, a wake up alarm and future DAB+ compatibility. However, sound quality is not quite as good (even though you now get a bass and treble control from within a menu). The big downer is that the previous models exceptional ability to deal with weak DAB signals has been reduced. If you are in a marginal reception area you are more likely to get the dreaded "bubbling mud" than with the old model. So if you just want a straight radio without the line-in feature then the old model might be a better bet.

    The PURE ONE is my first DAB and on the whole I am happy with it. However, there is one thing that lets this radio down and it's the volume control. Don't get me wrong, the sound is crisp and the reception is great however the minimum volume level is simply too loud. If you (like me) like to listen to radio before going to sleep and also like to use it to wake you up in the morning then there are great features like sleep timer (switches off after a set time that you specify) and alarm clock (self explanatory really...) However even when the radio is on its lowest setting and positioned on the other side of my bedroom then it still blasts out some radio stations at an annoyingly high level. I've even tried reducing the bass and treble down to zero and it's still too loud. Apart from that it is a well designed and handsome product with a nice sound.

    Verified Purchase
    I was really pleased with this purchase until a few days ago when I started to have interferences on my DAB channels. Until then, it was very satisfying-clear audio and very easy to use with a nice design and colour.I am hoping the interference is an external factor and nothing to do with the radio.It works well on FM but I had bought it for DAB use. So, at the moment, I am hoping things will improve.

    Wonderfully easy to use, just got it home and plugged it in - the radio woke up, scanned to see what DAB radio stations I can get (50+!) and selected Radio 2 for me. All of the stations are in a list alphabetically so easy for me to switch to BBC 6Music. Low power too, I measured the radio at just 1W when turned off - that's much lower than I was expecting, a real money saver!!!
