better than no remote
on 24 April 2012
I paid £19 for what is a very cheap remote with slightly wobbly buttons. I was able to bind the remote with the radio after a couple of attempts, but what a palava! Whats wrong with providing the usual Infra red type remote that doesn't need that binding mullarkey in the first place, or are Pure so tight they don't want Buyers of their radio's to go using their own Logitech harmony or similar?
This remote only uses half the buttons when used with my Evoke flow and contrary to what some other reviewers have suggested, It won't change channels. Instead pressing the preset button will show you a list of presets on the units display itself, you then have to scroll through the list to find the channel/station you want.
Why can't a hi-tech Company like Pure offer a device dedicated to the each model? One which would have half a dozen preset buttons on the remote itself, that way you could change channels/stations with a single press of the remote.
So in summary, it's expensive but for insomniacs like me whose Wife hates having her sleep interrupted with clicking noises from the Radio itself, it's handy. Apart from basic functions like power, volume and menu etc It's not much of a remote control at all. The only thing I hope is that it lasts for a few years and doesn't die like too many others appear to have done.
