This is an attractive radio - I have the white one, I think the black one looks a bit cheaply plastic, whereas the white is cool - though my daughter preferred the pink one. Huge extending aerial seems the reason for the good station pickup. Good sound, with reasonable bass. Although there's only one speaker it picks up stereo and has a stereo headphone jack to plug in your hi-fi if you need it. 20 presets, which you access by pushing the preset button and turning the big dial to choose your favourite - pushing the dial acts like an enter key. You get to choose options for what appears on the display, you can update its software through a USB port (obviously not needed to do this yet) and its even got sleep and wake-up timers on it. A great boys toy...
As I have pointed out, I have never had a DAB radio so can't do a comparison, but the sound and looks are great, its intuitive to use, and the price is a killer for a PURE radio. Excellent. Quibbles? None really, except that if you want to be able to make it portable its looks like the best bet is to buy a chargePAK, which recharges when you plug the radio in the mains and then powers it when you unplug, and they seem expensive to me at thirty quid.
In short - if you've dallied and delayed in dabbling with DAB - this is The ONE - groan...
If you're new to DAB broadcasting, first go to this site and type in your post code to make sure you are covered by DAB transmission: [...] It will also tell you what stations will be (albeit an approximation) available in your area.
Overall I give this Pure One DAB radio 10/10. If you're looking for your first inexpensive and good quality DAB radio, buy this one.
It does what you would expect. The sound quality is perfect and the volume is more than adequate for my use. It is really easy to use, even in the dark when you can't see the buttons (am using it as a bedside radio as well as in kitchen, garden, study, camping, picnics, everywhere!). I think the controls are really intuitive, you turn it on and it tunes and works perfectly.
I really like the design - I've got the white one. It is light and easily portable and the blue glow from the backlit screen is lovely. It has a USB port for upgrades (there have been two, and you can sign up for email notification of these).
I went for this budget choice to see if I liked DAB - I do, I love it, but have one problem - the battery pak. I use my radio "out and about" a lot and it is eating 6 x C batteries regularly. When I bought it in July I was promised chargepak would be available late in July, then August and now its September and its still not out. And Pure have gone suspiciously quiet.... Cost of the radio plus the battery pack brings it up to £80; if I'd known how much trouble it would be to get the batterypak I would have just bought an oasis for £90 with the chargepak in and saved myself the hassle and expense of constantly buying batteries.
My verdict... Buy it, but not til they've sorted the battery pak (or if you only intend to use it near a plugpoint)
Reception is perfect in my area and sound is cd quality.
It is easy to use with a generous specification and also extremely light and portable. I agree with another reviewer with regard to Pure radios and their battery power consumption. On the Evoke 3 it is chronic and I haven't even tried this new one on batteries. Instead in both cases I bought the "ChargePak" which has a decent shelf life and recharges when the set is plugged in to the mains. Unlike the other reviewer the "ChargePak" is not impossible to get (I got 2 from different suplliers) Provided you do not intend to use disposable batteries then buy this radio, (and the Evoke 3)
