Digital Sound Quality
DAB is crackle-clear and hiss-free because it’s not subject to the same interference as analogue radio.

DAB Stations
There's more listening choice on DAB too. These great stations and many more are available in the UK on DAB digital radio. As DAB coverage varies, remember to check which stations are available in your area.

I've had quite a few DAB radios over the last 10 years and this is by far the best.

It pulls in DAB signals from further afield than any other unit I've had. Around the house I can use it with the arial stored closed, and I'm not all that near the transmitter. FM is as powerful though I find that it stumbles on autotuning at times, picking up noise between stations, but that's a minor issue.

Sound is pretty good - not really powerful and not hugely bass-y but it's good enough for a unit that is used around the house. Headphone audio is stereo (where broadcast) and sounds better than any other DAB radio I've had.

Battery life is stunning - my Sony personal unit ate 2xAA's in 6 hours, this really does last as long as they claim. I use it about 1 to 2 hours a day and only charge it about once a month.

With headphones it works really well on the move, the headphone lead becomes the arial. I've used it in the car and very rarely get the usual DAB 'burble'.

I also like the aux input - I connect my iPod to it and use the Move as an amplifier - a nice touch for people like me on the move staying in hotels.

It's a really nicely designed unit - the rubber back, brushed steel front and handy stand all make a really well made radio, by one of the better manufacturers.

We bought this little radio to replace a Pure Pocket, which we returned because it was so disappointing. The Pure Move is everything the Pocket wasn't, and we are delighted with it.

We have had this for a few weeks now and even with regular use it is still on its first charge (approx 40 hours per charge). It is nice and compact, yet the reception is excellent thanks to the aerial, and it picks up loads of stations. The sound quality, with pop/rock/jazz settings etc is changeable to suit most tastes. It is best listened to through headphones, as the external speaker is small, although adequate. Another good feature is the pop-out stand.

The only criticism is that the central control for programme select etc is on the small side, which means that you can sometimes access the wrong mode.

I would recommend this model to anyone looking for a small but robust and reliable digital radio.

This is my first DAB radio and what a little cracker it is. I live in a strong signal area so it's not surprising that the Pure Move picks up a huge selection of stations without difficulty. It is easy to operate using the mini joystick and the sound is crystal clear. The pull-out stand is a neat feature and the build quality is such that it should last a lifetime. But what really impresses me is the ability to use it as a DAB tuner. I've connected it to my hi-fi system and it sounds fantastic. If you're looking for a well-built, great sounding and versatile DAB radio I would highly recommend it.

My wife bought me this little gadget for my birthday, as she got annoyed with me carrying my larger Evoke round the flat, trailing wires and so on. I'm really impressed with it, it's nice and compact, has a good tactile feel, and the sound quality is excellent.

It's very easy to move from room to room without any fuss. The function buttons are minimal, and easy to use. Highly recommended.

I agree with the other positive reviews - and I haven't read a bad word about it anywhere else - this is a great little radio!

Neatly packaged and straightforward to charge and set up, it was ready to use within a few hours (although it recommends charging for 12 hours the first time). The controls are easy to use and the tone and overall quality is superb, considering its size and price. It actually looks better than I thought it would - it is smart and robust, I love it and it has Moved me to write this review!!

I have had this now for a week and it is very good indeed. Reception is first class on both FM and DAB. I find all the controls easy to use and with excellent intuitive function. This tiny radio feels anything but insubstantial with a solid feel, a quality matt ruberised rear panel/stand; chromed controls and a brushed aluminium front panel. Have used it plugged into my hi fi; good quality active PC stereo speakers and headphones and it gave me very high quality reception that was entirely free from interference in an area renown for this. The built in speaker performs well for its small size. Battery life is very reasonable and if recharged when still about a quarter full should last for years yet even then the radio could still be used with the mains adaptor that is included.

The lettering on the front panel is not to my taste but then I am a bit fussy about artistic design.

I wanted to replace a similarly-sized FM radio that I carry around from one room to another, generally for brief periods. The Move seemed to be the ideal solution. I've never had a digital radio as I suspected poor reception, so was pleased to have the digital/FM combo. Unfortunately, my fears were well founded, I get no digital reception except within about a foot of the front windows. I live in central London but in a mews house (ie wedged down between 5 story buildings). As a result I tried using the FM mode most of the time - but the reception is worse than my old radio.
More importantly, the unit has a couple of very irritating design failures. Firstly, the stand that holds the radio vertical is narrow and unstable - it wouldn't problem if you could just leave the Move flat on the table - but the aerial is inexplicably arranged so that it can't point upwards. The result is a delicate balancing act every time you relocate. Secondly, the one/off button has to be held down for several seconds before anything happens - a sliding switch would be much more convenient - this `feature' sounds minor but is increasingly frustrating. There seems to be no reason for either drawback except poor design. Other than that, the radio is elegant, easy to use, and quite pleasing. The battery life is excellent.
If you plan to use the Move for relatively long periods of time without wanting to move from room to room, it may satisfy you. I wanted a radio to carry around the house with me, as I get up in the morning, and for that it is very disappointing. After a month of testing, I have reverted to my old radio - which I got as a freebie with a new credit card 15 years ago. It even has better bass from the same sized speaker.
