Everything I wanted in such a device,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PURE Chronos CD Series II, DAB/FM/CD Stereo Clock Radio - Black (Electronics)
I have been using this device for a few days, since buying it new from Amazon, and have to say I am very impressed. It is easy to use out of the box (self-tunes, sets the clock etc), and I found the use of buttons very intuitive (no need to read the manual). My existing clock radio - probably 12 years old now, was starting to hum so loud, that it was waking me up. I cannot say I have heard any humming from this device at all. I also love the dimming display, based on the ambient light in the room. It means that when I wake at 2:00am, and want to know what the time is, my eyes are no longer burned out, as they used to be.
The provision of a USB charging port is inspired (my phone charges off USB), and as I am not an iPhone/iPod user, a dock limiting me to such devices really is of no interest whatsoever.
Finally, a lot has been made about the noise of the CD player, when it's spinning the disk. It is audible, which is a shame (for something of this price), but not so loud that I consider the device spoiled. All-in-all, a beautiful piece of kit!
