Product Description

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.

Features also include FM with RDS, Intellitext, textSCAN, kitchen and sleep timers, a backlit display and USB upgradeability.

Listen Later enables you to save your favourite digital radio programme and play it back later. The programme is stored in memory while your radio is switched on, or in standby, until overwritten by another. The memory will hold up to about 45 minutes* worth of a typical broadcast and will stop once the memory is full.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great wee radio 31 Jan 2012
By Rabbit
Colour Name:White
My Mum got one of these for her Birthday last year and raved on about it so I found myself getting one for my flat too. The radio took 2s to set up, where I live has a shocking analogue signal but the radio picks up digital no problem (I haven't tried FM). The listen later function is useful - I listen to the Archers but I'm rarely in the right place at 7pm to catch it, and the listen later function is quicker than getting the podcast. The auxilary line in is easy to use with an mp3 player if you want and the alarm option is great. Appearance-wise it looks very classy, I wasn't sure about white (but it was £5 cheaper than black) however it looks good. The display is clear and menus easy to navigate.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE PERFECT PORTABLE 16 Nov 2011
By Tony
Colour Name:White
I bought this radio after reading that it came FIRST in the Sunday Mail review of portable DAB radios.
I have been a radio ham for over 50 years and I am still over-awed by the technology in this radio.
I read that it is BRITISH design made in China.
To see the details of my music on Classic FM flashing across the screen is awesome and impressive.
I have now ordered the battery pack which I think is essential to really get the full benefit from this set.
Well done Pure !

3.0 out of 5 stars A good little Radio. 29 April 2013
Colour Name:Black
I have had this radio for some years now thinking that eventually we will receive a decent DAB SIGNAL in my part of east anglia how wrong i was!(it struggles to pick up a signal) but its fine on FM, i have it in use on a daily basis and cannot fault it.The only down side for me is the material that encloses the case a kind of black synthetic rubber?it certainly shows finger/handling stains which cannot be removed and at times feels a little sticky if in a warm room...(not in direct sunlight)
