PURE ONE Classic Series II

ONE Classic Series II is a DAB digital and FM radio that looks great, sounds fantastic and is easy to use.

With the ability to record your favourite programme and play it back later, smooth satin-touch finish, a choice of colours, an input for your iPod/MP3 player and digital radio pause and rewind, One Classic Series 2 has something for everyone.

If you haven’t experienced digital radio yet, you’re in for a treat. There’s more station choice, easy station selection, extra information on the display and crisp, clear digital-quality sound.

ONE Classic Series II offers hours of portable listening per charge of the optional rechargeable ChargePAK C6L, reducing the cost to you and to the environment. Alternatively you can use six standard C size alkaline batteries.

Listen Later enables you to save your favourite digital radio programme and play it back later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure One Classic DAB 22 Dec 2011
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
The Pure One Classic DAB is robust and stylish with the facility to pause and record radio content a worthwhile addition to the Pure range of features.
The rubber/plastic casing is classy (excuse the pun!) and has a nice, smooth (pun intended!) feel.
Pre - sets are terrific and the sound quality is excellent. Indeed, the various chrome button controls are appealing, effective and very easy to operate. All round a great piece of equipment.
One reservation has to be the cost. With a further, relatively hefty, amount required to purchase a battery pack, the total cost of this radio is not insignificant. The unwary might buy before realising that the battery pack is an 'almost essential' extra (in my opinion) and, with that in mind, an additional - but necessary - expense. Other than this qualification, the Pure Classic One Dab is a fine piece of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for speech radio 9 Mar 2012
By Nicky B
Colour Name:Black
Did loads of research plus spent ages in a Comet (shhh!) traipsing backwards and forwards plugging in various radios (incl. the more expensive Pure ones) and this was by far the best option for me - I listen to Five Live all day while I work, and have an acute 'musical' (picky!) ear, so speech clarity/pleasant sound is very important to me. The aforementioned more expensive radios were too bassy for speech (and, annoyingly, nearly all have no treble/bass controls), some were too tinny, whereas this one is perfect - had it a couple of months, and I might be sad but it gives me pleasure every time I switch it on! The features are good, I use it plugged in to the wall in my studio, so no battery is not an issue for me....and, as the other reviews say, it FEELS lovely! Enjoy...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 3 Jan 2012
Colour Name:Black
N.B. this is the Series 2. some places are still selling the Series 1 and features are different enough to recommend getting the S2.

This is a really nice piece of kit. I bought this for my wife with the extra battery pack so she can wander the house.

The sound quality is excellent considering its single speaker, volume is not massive but more than adequate.

I really like the slightly soft matt black coating its a lovely feel and also makes it feel secure when carrying it around. Although the radio is slightly indented at the rear to give a sense of grip I would have prefered something a little more 'grippier'. Thats not to say I think you will drop it its just a personal preference.

The controls are pretty easy to use but i'm not a huge fan of tiny buttons, but the placement of the important ones, tune volume make most operations fuss free.

I like the idea of the pause and play and record feature, shame its not backed up with SD card for more memory. However I've not used it yet other than to have a play so maybe it would be a feature too far for people who are fully au fait with Iplayer et al.

The addition of a alarm feature was one of the things that really swung the purchase. Its easy to use, intelligent, offering a number of times, and mon-fri feature meaning you don't have to remember to turn it on and off.

The rechargeable battery pack also swung it. An expensive option, but running DAB Radios on batteries is an expensive hobby as well. It would have been better had the machine been able to charge standard NiMh D cell batteries, which would have been roughly half the cost of the pack.

But add a separate charger into the mix and there is not much saving to be had going DIY rechargable.

Overall a great package

2.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality adequate but functionality poor 21 Aug 2013
Colour Name:Black
Unlike most of my stuff, I didn't buy this from Amazon - there was a very good price to be had locally (very unusual).

I confess to being disappointed. Partly, I engaged in poor research because I wanted this to replace a bed side radio; however, the fact is that the functionality of the radio is so poor that using it as a bed side radio is pretty nigh on impracticable.

I found the sound quality adequate but not at all exceptional. This is my third DAB radio - the first bought when they were in their comparative infancy - and, whilst they are all good, this Pure radio is not great like the others. My Roberts Unologic, which lives in my motorhome, is much, much better. The other, the oldest one, is a Ferguson and the Pure was bought to replace this with the idea that the Ferguson would be relegated to the spare room.

Sadly, the Pure is now in the spare room. Apart from the difference in quality (the Pure is a rounder but hollow sound and a significant tone lower making programmes broadcasting speech hard to hear clearly - especially softer lower voices like Evan Davis for example) the biggest issue I have is the controls and display.

The backlit display can be made to stay on whilst the radio is on, but it is rather bright for a darkened room. On the other hand there is no backlight option when the radio is off making it impossible to see the time when it is dark (or even when it is light unless you get your eyes within a few inches of the display). What is needed, as found on my old Ferguson, is a permanent but soft backlight.

Then there is the question of the controls. These are all on the front of the radio. In turn the radio is very light (as you would expect).
