I did a lot a research before getting this radio. I chose this mainly because, out of all the other radio alarm clocks with idocks, this one is approved for working with iPhones and the phone will still ring when you get a call while it's in the idock. Reviews reported that there is minimal phone interference while listening to the radio the phone is in the idock in comparison to other radios which have complaints about interference.

Over all I am happy with the product and although I've not had another one I believe this to be the best radio alarm clock with an idock for the iphone that is less than £90.

Good things about it:

1) Works with iphone 3GS (there are many products with idocks but you need to be sure it's compatible with your particualr phone).

2) You don't have to switch the phone off while it's in the idock so you can still recieve calls (the radio just stops when you recieve a call).

3) Almost no interference from the phone while it's in the idock which is often a problem with other devices. (Only rarely a few beeps, but that's to be expected and it's not a problem).

4) You have 4 different alarms which is great. I set mine for the radio to go off at 7am, 5pm, 8pm and 10pm. Or you can opt for the alarm to be an alarm tone or to soemthing on your iPhone.

5) The radio alarm keeps me up to date with news and current affairs with little effort from me (I set the alarm to be Radio 4 or World service)

6) I can listen to my collection of downloaded radio 4 podcasts whenever I like.

7) The sound is powerful and rich as it has 10W speakers.

8) I love the white colour which goes well with a white duvet set and brightens up the room.

I bought this as a present for my girlfriend, and we are very impressed. Out of the box we were immediately impressed with how well it was put together. It feels very well made and with a quality feel to the buttons and volume/selector dial.

I normally set these sort of things up, but my girlfriend wanted to set this up, so I sat back and waited to hear her cursing another "stupid machine". Instead all I heard was "that was easy". She plugged it in, turned it on, waited a few seconds and it had scanned the channels and set the time.

Sound quality is actually quite good for such a small little unit. The sound is not as good as something like the Yamaha TSX120 (which I also looked at), but then it is a lot smaller and half the price. DAB radio sounds pretty good, and is easy to use, likewise with an iPod connected. The remote is small, well made and well thought out.

Alarm fucntions work exactly as you would expect (you can choose how you would like to be woken, alarm, radio etc). There is a large snooze bar at the top which is easy to find in the dark.

If you want a DAB radio, alarm clock and iPod dock, small enough to easily fit on a bedside table, then this is for you.

I was looking for a clock DAB Radio and I had trouble to find what to buy as all the reviews were mixed. I finally chose the Pure Chronos Idock II because I knew the brand and I thought it would be useful to have a ipod dock. I am happy with my choice I do not regret it. The only thing is that the buttons are not sensitive enough and sometimes you have to press several times on the button to make it work. I have solved the issue by using the remote.

This product is very good, the main faults are the alarm settings, take a while to set up and that the buttons are not backlit making it difficult to work in the morning. The dock is good and will play you ringtone when receiving calls,
overall a good product

I was weighing up between this and the Roberts Idream CRD42 DAB/FM Stereo Clock Radio with Dock for iPod. I initially bought the Roberts one - partly on price and partly on the footprint being smaller with the Roberts one (it goes on a bedside cabinet). The Roberts one, whilst easy to set up, had appalling reception on even the BBC channels and even worse on other ones. There is also no way of controlling the volume of the radio when it is set to come on as the alarm. I spoke to Roberts about both of these issues and they said that there was nothing that could be done to improve reception, and there was no way of altering the volume (which is VERY loud!). So sent that back and got the PURE one instead - fantastic! Everything is so flexible - you have 4 independent alarms which can be set as every day, just week days, just weekends or just one offs - can be set to radio (FM or DAB) or iPod or buzzer and the volume can be adjusted for any of them! The reception quality is superb - on all channels. Whilst it is a little large by the bed, I can forgive that because of everything else it does so well! The display auto dims really nicely at night - but is still clear enough to read if necessary - and is very clear during the day. I've also found that we are listening to much more music at night as the sleep function is so easy to drift off to. I cannot rate this item highly enough!

I spent a long time reading through reviews of products before buying this and can only say you have to hear things for yourself. While the style is quite 'sweet' I have a number of problems with the way it functions:

It is difficult to change/select stations

It is a fiddle to set up the alarm based functions

Sometimes, when you press for the volume to decrease it actually increases! (This is awful at night as I've woken my wife up on more than one occasion.)

The thing I dislike most about this product is that it sounds so thin. While I realise you get what you pay for, I can't understand why Pure gets such a thumbs up for audio quality. I'm pretty certain I'll be looking for another product when this one 'dies'.
