As I couldn't decide between this and the Pure Chronos II Clock Radio I did the logical thing and bought both! They had both received decent reviews and due to Amazons excellent return service I decided I had nothing to lose. So, tonight, I've pitted them against each other. Placed side by side I started them off scanning the airwaves. The Sony won this first round, capturing quite a few more stations than the Pure. Next, came the sound quality round. Again, the Sony won. The Pure sounds far more woolly with less resolution. As for ease of use I have to give this round to Sony again. I found the layout of the Pure's butttons confusing and although the menu system on both is very similar, the Pure's small display compared to the Sony's did make things less clear. Oh, and the Sony is smaller too so takes up less space on my bedside cabinet. So there you have it. If you are undecided like me between these two units, go for the Sony.

I have just discovered a HUGE problem with this DAB radio!! If you intend to use/keep your mobile phone within a meter of this clock radio DO NOT BUY IT!!
I radio seems to have zero shielding from mobile phone radio frequencies. This means that every morning the radio listening will be ruined by a deafening RAA DAA DAA DAA DAA noise blasting from the speakers when my mobile starts communicating with the transmitter. I'm not sure if the Pure suffers from this same problem but I just had to warn you of what I consider to be a serious design flaw.
