4.0 out of 5 stars Great internet radio, 14 Nov 2012
This review is from: Pure Sensia 200D Connect Portable Wireless Music and Radio System with Colour Touchscreen and USB Record - Black (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice internet radio with some great features. I already had a Logitech Squeezebox Radio - Black so I was interested to compare the two. The Pure Sensia has the advantage of a touch-screen, this is a good size and enables easy navigation of menus, much easier than using the buttons on the Squeezebox. The sound quality on the Sensia is also very good, I was impressed by the standard of the sound from the small speakers again this is an improvement on my Squeezebox. Both radios come with a mains connection and a battery pack needs to be bought separately, however, the Sensia does come with remote control whereas the Squeezebox remote comes with the battery pack. Both the radios come with access to a wide range of internet radio stations and have the ability to save your favourites. I found that both were set up quickly and connected easily to my WiFi network. I bought my Squeezebox as I was keen to be able to stream music, the Sensia also has this feature, however, the Sensia uses the Pure music streaming service whereas the Squeezebox can use a variety of different music services, including Napster, Spotify and Last.fm. Although the Pure music streaming seems to work well it is not ideal for me as I already have accounts with Napster and Last.fm, you also have the ability to scrobble from the Squeezebox which is not available on the Sensia. The Sensia does have the great feature of tagging a track from an internet radio station, giving you further information and the ability to buy the track. Also the recording to a USB stick is another really good feature. Both radios can be used to play music stored on your computer, my squeezebox was set up to do this very easily but I have struggled to set up the Sensia despite downloading the Pure Flowserver software, thankfully this is not one of the features of most importance to me. Overall the Sensia is a great radio with some really interesting features and is only let down by having to use the Pure streaming music service instead of any other service you may already be subscribed to and using on other devices.
