The chassis of this radio seems, unsurprisingly, to be based on the very successful Evoke series, although because it's vertical instead of horizontal, it has only four pre-set station buttons, for which I deduct one star. It gets 4 stars for sound quality, however, which is excellent. Reception is very good indeed through the stubby rubberised antenna, and it has the usual(these days) input jacks for other devices.
All in all, a splendid little DAB radio - but I do wish it had more preset buttons.
The reason for four stars over five is it could do with an alarm clock function (I hope pure have that up their sleeve in a software update), wish it was rechargable from any old mains lead (requires plug in brick) and it's only mono.
The downsides are that it is pretty darn heavy and the battery lasts only 6-7 hours and takes a night to charge. Not one to take on a camping trip. A radio-alarm would be fab. There are only 5 presets - 7+ would be better (though it would clutter the panel). The RDS scroll is very slow - annoying to read - not sure if that is within control of Pure. The bugger flashes when charging, which is a pain at the bedside. The rubber flanges on the bottom have come off and required sticking down.
If you'd get use out of the weatherproofing it is a great buy and the sound quality is better than others I've heard in same price bracket. It's a cool and sturdy contender in the DAB market.
Update 1/1/13 Need a new battery now after long use , seems to be not available anymore, batteries here on Amazon are differant, not sure what to do about it . Pure website has a spares section, every battery out of stock . I love theis radio but for the battery reasons would reduce to 3 stars if I could.
