Customer Review

on 12 September 2011
First - this is a sexy radio. In my opinion, it knocks Pure (with their increasingly dated core design) into a cocked hat. Second, the sound is very decent for a radio of this size, in this price bracket (will will only get better if and when the UK moves to DAB+, which this supports). It also feels solidly built and hasn't so far been prone to the unreliability I've recently found from Pure DAB radios.

BUT - There are a few things about it which let it down badly.

- It has no preset buttons. Changing between stations is either manual, or via a horribly unintuitive favourites menu.
- The 'enter' button is positioned well away from the jog knob, used for navigating menus, stations, etc. Why not make the jog knob clickable?
- The display is *terrible*. It's a dirt cheap LCD, which (despite being white on black) leaks light and has a very poor viewing angle. The text scrolling happens one character at a time, rather than smoothly, as it the case with most recent DAB radios. The OLED display in my Pure Tempus is infinitely better at around the same price point.

I'm happy with my radio, but disappointed because it could so easily have been much better.
