I had a PURE elan prior to this and never got on with it. That was a pain to store stations and after only a short while the volume button started to cause problems.
This radio feels much better built than my old radio and the simple dial to control volume is much preferable to the push buttons on that Elan.
This radio really does look, feel and sound the business. I LOVE the way it looks. So Retro.
On first switch on it searched for digital stations and found radio 2 first, and when it came on, the first thing that struck me was the clarity of sound. It sounded like a top of the range stereo. Wow!
The instructions were really easy to understand too.
It is really easy to swap from the digital stations to FM so you can find your local radio station for local news and weather etc, then go back to the Digital stations and it is easy to store the stations you prefer to listen to. The FM station reception is very clear, too. Of course you have to extend the telescopic aerial for this. But its a well built aerial and extends higher than the one on my old PURE Elan.
I love the 'retro' look, the leather finish and the old fashioned dial knobs on the top.
It also has a socket for you to plug in your MP3 player so you can listen to that through the unit's excellent speakers.
I have ordered a cable so I can listen to my MP3 player and will report back when I have tried that.
In the meantime I am enjoying listening to a clear radio signal through a good quality radio set.
Very pleased so far.
cable has arrived for connecting MP3 player to it.
So easy to set up and now I have the luxury of listening to all my favourite tracks via the radio set. Sounds lovely and clear. I am so pleased that I can also use the radio for this.
Prior to this I could only listen to my MP3 player via the headphones.
I am a little bit in love with this radio.
