Replacement for old Sony, 19 Aug 2009
My trusty Sony Dreamstation finally conked out after many years of good service.
I was put off a Sony DAB radio by the reviews so decided to go for a Pure on the advice of a friend.
There is a lot to like with the Chronos II:
The radio sounds very good considering the small speaker.
The triangular shape allows you to place it at any angle on the bedside table without it looking crooked, as a rectangular shape might.
Setting the various functions through the menu and top panel buttons is easy and required only a quick read of the manual.
There is a alarm setting for weekdays only, unlike my old Sony, so I don't get woken up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday.
The "Standby" button for turning of the alarm is very easy to find in the dark.
The only thing I think could be improved is the rather odd display which is almost invisible when viewed from certain angles.
