It is OK.... but
on 13 January 2014
I bought this radio a little time ago and the rechargeable battery came included. Disappointed to see that this now costs an additional £30 plus. It was bought for the kitchen, however it couldn't pick up DAB signal in the kitchen, it would work upstairs in bedroom so that is were it stayed.
The leather covering is very flimsy indeed, it does tear, you need to be very careful when extending ariel otherwise you will rip the leather. It's not got a bad sound, it doesn't play very loud (though loud enough for me) it is easy to work and you can use it as a radio alarm clock. It's huge downside is ability to pick up DAB if you are not in a great reception area and the flimsy covering.
I purchased a Roberts Revival iStream Internet DAB for the kitchen, worked a treat, didn't need to stream from internet just worked via DAB. Whilst somewhat more expensive than the Pure it really does knock spots of it in my opinion.
