Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 8 October 2012
Colour: Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I have several radios including two Pure radios that work with internet radio so am comparing it with other internet radios. I have read other reviews that compared it to Squeezsebox and I do not see that as a fiar comparison.

First impressions
Solid bit of kit
Feels solid (quite heavy actually)

It was easy to set up as long as you know your wifi password. It needed a firmware upgrade but it was easy to do. Setting channels is ok but could be easier. If you have an iphone then I'd recommend getting the free app to control it. It makes it far easier and gives you functionality you cannot get without it (for example setting the alarm to come on only on certain days of the week.) The radio function uses Tunein. This is an excellent iphone app and has transferred across well to this radio.

Comparing it to the Pure wifi radio, it is slightly more difficult to use but the iphone app makes it much easier. It tunes much faster than the Pure radio and has a nice (small) colour screen to show the icon/picture of the station listended to. On the downside it has a max 6 preset stations. This may be enough for most but I like to have up to about 10. Downside is this is an internet only radio so if you have no connection then you can't drop back to using DAB. On my Pure (used in another room), I tend to listen to wifi radio 95% of the time os this is not really an issue.

Overall, this is a nice radio. Wifi radio is certainly the future of radio and this is pretty easy to set up and use. It sits nicely on a table and gives a good sound. If you want a wifi radio then you cannot go much wrong with this one.
