It may appear expensive but LISTEN to the result,
This review is from: Pure XT-1 Auxililary Speaker for Evoke-1XT Maple Finish (Electronics)
It may seem an extravagance to spent a further thirty pounds on what Pure should have included in the first place an extra speaker to provide a stereo broadcast but they can be forgiven because what a transformation to an already brilliant performer.
If you think the sound in mono is full of detail just connect this extra speaker the end result will trully shock you.When you hear a stereo broadcast for the first time you can be forgiven to believe you are listening to a cd playing from your HIFi,the sound really is that good.
Slightly too much bass for my likeing but whilst listening to a concert on Classic Fm recently you could hear people couhing in the background,you almost felt you were there in the auditorium with them.
The build quality of this small matching speaker in either Maple,Cherry or the luxurious Steinway piano gloss black justifies the thirty pounds spent.You donot feel cheated having spent the extra cash.
Other more expensive models already have the second speaker as standard but having a separate speaker with nearly nine feet of cable to position it will enable you to taylor the stereo sound to your likeing.
Repositioning this speaker closer or further away from the radio depending on the broadcast has surprising results on the already magnificent sound.
The only thing i would have liked included on any Pure Digital Radio is a separate Bass and Trebble knob so that you can adjust the sound to your likeing.Personally i donot like too much bass but other people do so it is personal taste.
All i can say having owned a Pure Digital Radio only for two weeks,the sound is amazing for such a small unit,the build quality could easily justifie a higher price tag than advertised.
My fairly new Panasonic non digital radio only purchased last year willnot seem the same now that i have experienced DAB,i will never look back.It is akin to watching Digital Television for the first time having been used to anologue,you will never go back to the old technology.
If then you have one of the several mono Pure Digital radios ensure you invest in this add on speaker the difference in depth and clarity of sound wiil really impress you.
