This review is from: PURE Contour, Dock for iPod and iPhone with DAB/FM/Internet Radio and Video Out (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
12th September 2011
Firstly delivery, I ordered my Pure Contour (free supersaver delivery) at 8pm on Friday and it arrived at 12pm Monday...well done Amazon.
I am so pleased with this product. I agonized for weeks; reading professional reviews, customer feedback and speaking to friends before I finally opted for the Pure Contour and I am so pleased I made this choice. I previously had an Intempo RDI which was fabulous at first but sadly wouldn't recognise my mobile phone after I upgraded and then (a month after the warranty expired) stopped working altogether.
The Contour has a beautiful sound quality (with plenty of volume) and works perfectly on all of its various platforms. I have an iPhone 4 and have had no problems accessing and playing music from it. The menus are quick and intuitive and it is very easy to select tracks via the Contour's remote control. There is no interference and no need to put the phone into airplane mode.
The digital radio tuned in quickly as soon as I switched it on and the reception and sound quality are better than anything I've used before.
The internet radio was also surprisingly easy to set up...it took 2 or 3 minutes to program my WiFi access code and then I was quickly able to sort through the thousands of stations and select the ones I was most interested in. Likewise it is a breeze to select a podcast or 'listen again' programme. Surprisingly, to me, the sound quality is as good as the digital radio.
I've only had this product for a few hours and I am already in love with it...it isn't cheap at nearly £180 but it is worth every penny...I would happily recommend it to anyone (even my Mum who is a complete technophone...Lol)
