I did a lot a research before getting this radio. I chose this mainly because, out of all the other radio alarm clocks with idocks, this one is approved for working with iPhones and the phone will still ring when you get a call while it's in the idock. Reviews reported that there is minimal phone interference while listening to the radio the phone is in the idock in comparison to other radios which have complaints about interference.

Over all I am happy with the product and although I've not had another one I believe this to be the best radio alarm clock with an idock for the iphone that is less than £90.

Good things about it:

1) Works with iphone 3GS (there are many products with idocks but you need to be sure it's compatible with your particualr phone).

2) You don't have to switch the phone off while it's in the idock so you can still recieve calls (the radio just stops when you recieve a call).

3) Almost no interference from the phone while it's in the idock which is often a problem with other devices. (Only rarely a few beeps, but that's to be expected and it's not a problem).

4) You have 4 different alarms which is great. I set mine for the radio to go off at 7am, 5pm, 8pm and 10pm. Or you can opt for the alarm to be an alarm tone or to soemthing on your iPhone.

5) The radio alarm keeps me up to date with news and current affairs with little effort from me (I set the alarm to be Radio 4 or World service)

6) I can listen to my collection of downloaded radio 4 podcasts whenever I like.

7) The sound is powerful and rich as it has 10W speakers.

8) I love the white colour which goes well with a white duvet set and brightens up the room.

I was looking for a clock DAB Radio and I had trouble to find what to buy as all the reviews were mixed. I finally chose the Pure Chronos Idock II because I knew the brand and I thought it would be useful to have a ipod dock. I am happy with my choice I do not regret it. The only thing is that the buttons are not sensitive enough and sometimes you have to press several times on the button to make it work. I have solved the issue by using the remote.

I bought this as a present for my girlfriend, and we are very impressed. Out of the box we were immediately impressed with how well it was put together. It feels very well made and with a quality feel to the buttons and volume/selector dial.

I normally set these sort of things up, but my girlfriend wanted to set this up, so I sat back and waited to hear her cursing another "stupid machine". Instead all I heard was "that was easy". She plugged it in, turned it on, waited a few seconds and it had scanned the channels and set the time.

Sound quality is actually quite good for such a small little unit. The sound is not as good as something like the Yamaha TSX120 (which I also looked at), but then it is a lot smaller and half the price. DAB radio sounds pretty good, and is easy to use, likewise with an iPod connected. The remote is small, well made and well thought out.

Alarm fucntions work exactly as you would expect (you can choose how you would like to be woken, alarm, radio etc). There is a large snooze bar at the top which is easy to find in the dark.

If you want a DAB radio, alarm clock and iPod dock, small enough to easily fit on a bedside table, then this is for you.

I was weighing up between this and the Roberts Idream CRD42 DAB/FM Stereo Clock Radio with Dock for iPod. I initially bought the Roberts one - partly on price and partly on the footprint being smaller with the Roberts one (it goes on a bedside cabinet). The Roberts one, whilst easy to set up, had appalling reception on even the BBC channels and even worse on other ones. There is also no way of controlling the volume of the radio when it is set to come on as the alarm. I spoke to Roberts about both of these issues and they said that there was nothing that could be done to improve reception, and there was no way of altering the volume (which is VERY loud!). So sent that back and got the PURE one instead - fantastic! Everything is so flexible - you have 4 independent alarms which can be set as every day, just week days, just weekends or just one offs - can be set to radio (FM or DAB) or iPod or buzzer and the volume can be adjusted for any of them! The reception quality is superb - on all channels. Whilst it is a little large by the bed, I can forgive that because of everything else it does so well! The display auto dims really nicely at night - but is still clear enough to read if necessary - and is very clear during the day. I've also found that we are listening to much more music at night as the sleep function is so easy to drift off to. I cannot rate this item highly enough!

First off, I'm using this clock-radio as a kitchen stereo, not as a bedroom alarm clock, so I haven't tested or used any of the alarm clock features.

As a kitchen stereo, the size is nice and compact. The set-up was really quite easy. I get good DAB and FM radio reception with the supplied wire aerial, which is only about 1-metre long. (An optional socket to be able to plug-in a different external aerial would have been a good addition).

While the sound quality is perfectly OK to my ears, I am slightly disappointed with the maximum volume this is capable of if you like to listen to LOUD music. The speakers are only 5 Watts but at least they don't distort at all. However, the volume really *is* perfectly acceptable for normal listening levels. It's just that you won't be scaring anyone at parties with this, nor will you have your neighbours banging on the walls!

When playing the iPod, the screen display can only display either the artist *or* the title, but not both, which bugs me.

Some other reviewers have said they have had problems pushing the front panel buttons but I haven't had any problems at all -- and in fact I haven't even needed to use the remote control yet. Other reviewers have also said the system slides back when they press the buttons, but this also does not happen to me (perhaps it's more to do with the surface it's sitting on). But I do think some back-lights for the buttons (and/or some texture to differentiate them) would be a good idea).

There is only limited connectivity as the USB port on the top "is [only] able to power standard USB devices such as fans and mobile phone chargers" -- so it's very limited and can't be used to transfer data/music.
