Be careful buying DAB radios. DAB is changing in the next couple of years and most old DAB receivers won't be compatible!

Be careful when reading the quoted post because

1) It's scaremonging and nothing has been confirmed
2) Are you really bothered about spending £24.99 even if it does last 2 years?

Which.com give the Pure One a great review:

"Pure One
Price: £50
Score: 62%
Type: Tabletop
The Pure ONE gets our Exceptional Value Award, proving that cheap doesn’t have to mean nasty where DAB radios are concerned. Our listening panel thought that sound quality was good and described it as ‘detailed’ with ‘good clarity’."

They do say however to stay clear of the Intempo PP-01:

"Don't BuysThis table top/portable radio is a let down on all fronts. The sound is poor - scratchy, thin and lacking bass. Our panel of expert listeners strongly advise avoiding it.

30% Intempo PP-01 £90 Annoyingly the maximum volume is not very loud – certainly not adequate to fill a room. It is difficult to use, all buttons are small and recessed.

Battery life is dismal, with just 7 hours of listening per charge with the supplied rechargeable battery – the worst on test. It's also the most power hungry when connected to the mains, though not the worst in standby."

Hot post though, especially for the Pure One!

I cannot find this radio..

I was in Sainsburys today and the same radios were £20 yes that's right £20! They had lots of stock, This was Sainsburys in Cobham Surrey.

heat added elsie. I got a refurbished Pure Evoke 1 only a month or so ago for £30.

£34.95 is excellent price for a brand new unit.

Its called DAB+, and offers a contains a set of new, lower bandwidth( but higher quality) transmissions than the current CODEC used for decoding current digital broadcasts.

I expect broadcasters will be switching over to the new CODEC, as and when enough DAB+ radios are sold, and I expect that some broadcasters like the BBC will continue broadcasting on the old CODEC for a while yet (as there arealready a lot of v1 DAB's out there)

So I would suggest that it is safe to buy DAB radios with a view that 3-5 yeas you are likely to want to change (and definitely within 10years - assuming the radio is still working).

So at this price, its great value and a no brainer.

I own the Pure One, and I can certainly recommend it. It also comes in Black and Pink if you don't fancy the white, but personally I think the white is the best colour.

I recently bought one for £40 from Tesco's which was a Pure One Ecoplus edition (Same as the featured one but lower power consumption i think).

I went to my local Tesco today in Bristol and unfortunately they didn't have any radios on offer. Must be a local thing.
#21
thanks for the heat folks - it's my hottest deal ever! :)
(but yes it is localised) I checked it at the big M60 Stockport
store but not available there...

Thanks for the Which? info Bwooce - very useful :thumbsup:

and it's certainly worth taking Mrlossy's advice to check your
local Sainsbury's too - hope some HUKD guys get a deal :santa:

saw some black pure ones in my local store, ricoh coventry, but they were the eco friendly ones which scanned at £50.... Noted that it had usb ports for firmware upgrade, was wondering if the £35 mentioned also has this? Will check another store, thanks.....

This is the Pure Siesta I believe - I was after one too and had it scanned at Tesco at £50 - it is upgradeable to DAB+ via USB. I ended up buying from Dixons for £41 delivered.

I think a lot of people are assuming that the fact that a radio has a USB port for firmware upgrades means that it will be upgradeable to DAB+. Reading up on the subject, it seems that this is not correct and it looks like all the models listed as on offer at Tesco will not be upgradeable to DAB+.

http://www.digitalradiotech.co.uk/articles/DAB+-being-delayed-by-receiver-manufacturers.php

That said, the article also suggests that the there will be further delays to the full introduction of DAB+, so the non-upgradeable radios should be good for a few years yet.

Personally, I don't think these prices at Tesco are that special. I got a Pure One (white) for £25 from Boots last year when they cleared them out. As gifts for family, I got the Ferguson R116D reconditioned DAB from Curry's when it was £12.99 including delivery the other week and the Hitachi KH1000D Refurbished DAB Radio for £9.63 including delivery last Friday also from Curry's. Therefore, I think that there are likely to be DAB bargains better than those at Tesco coming along quite regular in the future.
