The best radio I have ever owned bar none.
#2
A good price for this..... awful lot of bad reviews though.
#3
I have this and the Logitech Internet Radio. If you purchase the extra speaker it does have a really good sound and it has the benefit of FM and DAB if their internet service servers are down. It is a really good price for this (or any internet radio) TBH.
#4
Great radio, great price. Heat.
#5
Does anyone know of a decent, portable player that does all of the above (maybe less the internet radio), plus a CD player? Seems like a gap in the market, apart from the Roberts Zoombox which sports a poxy 1 watt per channel...
#6
If anybody has one, could you have a look and see if you can get an American station called 'WFNX' in Boston, MA. Thanks.
#7
Thanks, mixed reviews but looks good for the money. Just ordered one.
Nevasleep - thanks for the tip, I'm now listening to WFNX via iTunes.

This radio uses "The Lounge" for its streamed internet radio. WFNX is on The Lounge. I haven't inputted it into the radio, but seems likely that the set will pick it up.

I can't see how you would regret it. Mine cost near the full price and I think its worth every penny.
#10
I have checked and you can get WFNX Boston.
If you go to this web site you can see the thousands of stations you can get. I bought this unit just so I can gen NPR from the U.S. and I could not be happier. It also has lots of things like nature sounds you can listen to like rain and birdsong.
#11
I've tried one of these out in-store at John Lewis, and despite the lovely build quality, it seemed really slow to change stations, and between modes, and the internet radio options seemed pretty clunky - is that just because it's a display model? Do those of you who own one find it easy to use? And have there been firmware updates that improve things?
#12
Nice find, thank you

Nevasleep - thanks for the tip, I'm now listening to WFNX via iTunes.

Yeah its a great station, plays some refreshing music. Thanks to everyone who checked.

Might cave in, once I get fed up of my Pure One Classic + iPhone/iPad combo.
#14
I bought one of these a while back....was out the door and sold in under a week - terrible. Mine had loads of lag between station changes, crashed, needing total reset at least four times in the week I owned it.... and who ever thought thought 'touch' buttons were a good idea?

Google Roberts WM201 - now thats a good Internet radio.........totally amazing unit which has been faultless in the three years I have owned it........superb basey sound and intuitive operation.

Oi, radio, out the door! I showed the radio the door. Get out of it. Lol.

To have all those faults, it was either your radio or you live on the Bermuda Triangle.
#16
I got the pure evoke marshall & its spot on, great sound ;)
#17
good price, think they have these in makro for £90, so this is good......ordered a refurb one of these a few months ago for £49.99 but it didnt turn up
#18
I was umming and ahhing when I bought an Internet radio, and the bad reviews of this one put me off.

As I wanted an IPod dock too I ended up going for a Revo Heritage. A lot more money but it's not missed a beat in the year and a bit I've had it, great customer service from Revo (even though it was my numptyness rather than theirs) and it looks great too.

to change the alarm settings you have to turn the radio on!!!!?? wtf obviously designed by a single person not someone who is married or has kids - what a dims**t
#20
Good price.

But note that you need the optional RF remote to get the best out of the radio

You are talking about a £224 radio.
Like you I read the reviews before buying this radio. There are lots of good reviews and lots of bad ones. Before buying I would recommend reading the ones on Amazon (and the comments on this site to).
For £79.95 (its dropped another £5 this week) I concluded this is a great deal for an award winning radio, that I needed to buy from Amazon (great returns policy) and I need to have a good play with when it arrives.

Hi bill888

Could you explain why please?

Thanks
#23
I had one of these radios a while back and the only reason I returned it was due to only having 1 alarm. Now it has 2 I would recommend it. Even though I just bought a Pure Sirocco last week I am grabbing one of these at that price.
#24
Been the RRP for years. About time it came down in price. Great radio.
#25
Just ordered one, thank you.
Note that the battery pack is just 4 18650 cells in a shrink wrap.
Copies are available on ebay for £19 delivered from HK, or if you are that way inclined you can make your own with higher capacity cells very easily.
#26
Only feature missing for me is Bluetooth. Anyone know of a similar product that has that as well?
Great deal on this, by the way.
#27
I've had one of these for a year now, never had a problem with it.

Internet radio works really well and it's good for podcasts and bbc listen again.

I'm listen to talksport on it now.

Why do you need the remote?

I also have one of these. It streams music via twonkymedia from my NAS very well and the wireless range is better than the Logitech Squeezebox radio i've just bought. I paid 50 quid more than this a while back. I'd recommend it. My only gripe is the user interface as its just not as easy to use as a touch screen. For a Internet kitchen radio, its great.
#29
I would say the one item you do not need is the remote,you need to read the display to change things so your as well just changing things manually,use the money instead for a battery pack which certainly improves the usability of this great radio.

Bought one of these and sent it back as it was unsuitable for bedside listening as the display when dimmed lit up the whole room and the volume increments were too large to be able to set a suitable listening level. Otherwise, it was a pretty good radio but not recommended if you want something by your bedside to listen to while you doze off to sleep.

Great radio i have one steal at £75

I've got one of these. A good radio and the internet facility, once set up, is really useful. It means you can get lots of digital stations even if you don't have it available locally. Bargain price - go for it!

You have wasted your money on the remote IMO. It works perfectly well without it.

Reading reviews on Amazon, there is one (the latest one, by 'Welfare Status') that describes issues that are a deal breaker for me - namely, the performance of the menu system when accessing media shares. I'm looking for a device that can do radio + streaming audio and this looked like it'd fit the bill, but the questions raised are a major concern for me - anyone here owning one got anything to share on that topic? Has there been a firmware upgrade that sorts it? Or do you just need to use the Pure software rather than another?

Thanks!
#37
I'm looking for a DAB radio which will record programmes, preferably on a timer so I can record when I'm out. Would this radio do this? Or could anyone point me in the direction of where I can find one? Cheers

What issues are you meaning? I have 2 Pure devices already so if you can explain the issue I can maybe help?

Edit: just read the review in question. I use both the Pure Flowserver and a NAS and everything comes out in alpha order for me. I have about 1600 albums so put them in folders like A-C, D-I etc which makes navigating a lot easier.

Hi there - thanks. I guess the best way to explain is to paste the guy's comments from the review, here we go:

Media streaming: a great function. I've used Windows Media Player for years now, and it supports Windows Media Sharing. To connect, you select the 'Media Player' menu option, and it will scan for servers. If you don't have Media Player, you can install Pure's media server.

How does it work? Well, it's horrible!

Task: to find 'Abba', and play their music. You'd think (if you've used Itunes or Windows Media Player), that you'd go to 'Artist', scroll down to A (not far to go), and select Abba.

Do you? Well no. The list is not in alphabetical order! I have 1335 artists in my library, and the order on the evoke is completely random. Unusable. The Tranciva (and Media Player) order it nicely. It might be if you use Pure's own server then things are in the right order, I haven't tried. Either way this shows a terrible lack of testing. The other problem with the Pure is that it loads the lists into tiny buffers. So you can't flick through 1335 artists, nope, flick through 20, wait, flick through, wait, arrrrrrgh. The Tranciva, despite the much smaller screen doesn't have this problem.

The other option is the search. So we type in 'abba'. No results found..... 'suede'. Nope, nothing again.

Ok, so let's settle for scrolling through the artist list. I haven't got all week, so I'll forget about Abba. Hmm, look, Coldplay, select that. I'm expecting to hear my 13 Coldplay mp3s. Er, no. Instead I get.... 'Don't Speak', by No Doubt. Why? Because one of my Coldplay mp3s is assigned to 'unknown album', and so is the No Doubt song. In fact, whatever I choose, I get Don't Speak (or at least the two hundred or so artists - the artists with 'unknown album' go first for some reason). This is just broken.

So no search, no selecting by artists. On the plus side, the album list works, but it's not in alphabetical order.

See my edit to the post above.

I have just tried navigating for a random band from my library and it took me all of 20 seconds to find Nirvana and have the album Nevermind playing on the device.

The only issue I have is with *some* compliation albums, tracks are played in alpha order as oppsed to proper track order. This despite the files being tagged correctly.
