[COLOR=DarkRed]Manufacturer's Description[/COLOR]

From the world leaders in DAB comes a DAB and FM portable radio that looks good, sounds great and is unbelievably easy to use. With its stylish exterior, chrome controls, and great audio performance, ONE looks and sounds fantastic, wherever you listen. If you haven't experienced DAB yet, you're in for a treat: station selection by name, scrolling text display, all stations tuned-in at the touch of a button and crisp, clear, digital sound. And there's more listening choice too; in many areas up to twice as many stations are available on DAB as are available on FM.

bear in mind that DAB is reportedly being upgraded to DAB+ (date tbc but expected before 2009). Alot of DAB radios will not be able to get DAB+ as they are not upgradeable to DAB+ (however DAB may be around for a time after this - to what extent though this is not clear/has not been confirmed).

Pure One is one radio that is not upgradeable, so there is a possibility that this radio will be out of date/ obselete is 18 months time - perhaps even unusuable.....bit of a joke really! but the one is supposedly a good radio

I bought a Roberts CDR29 clock radio which is rubbish and ive taken it back (expected more for £100 - radio was fine, but alarm was a joke - so loud i am sure my neighbours could hear it (oh but you could adjust the volume AFTER the alarm sounded - eg after youve had a heart attack - alarm was akin to being hit on the head with a hammer - nb i like loud music!)

that is a local offer. at least with amazon you can get it anywhere in the country as it would cost me a lot more than a fiver to drive to irlam.

i've been umming and arring about getting a DAB radio

My current FM/MW/LW clock radio seems perfectly fine and the reception / sound quality seems decent enough

Are DAB radios markedly that much better?

Will sound quality depend on the signal I can get? do they improve if you plug them into the main aerial socket?

thanks

Yes they are better:)

No crackling or hiss,just clear broadcasts,and the Pure give you great sound quality.

Also the huge range of stations you can listen too.Got a DAB earlier this year,cannot see me going back to crackly fm again!

It depends what your current FM reception is like and what you want to listen to. If FM is nice and clear where you live amd you're quite happy with the range of stations you've got, then stick with your existing FM radio. If FM reception is a bit ropey you might get better sound on DAB and you'll get access to extra DAB-only stations.

Completely agree with this. Ok it's a great deal, but I would recommend checking the DAB coverage in your area first. There's nothing worse than listening to a DAB station with a low signal.

I would also definately stick to a Pure DAB radio. :thumbsup:

Still not as good as the radio quality on freeview though, and way behind the quality on sky..

I own this radio & can confirm that it is a really good dab. I plug a lead into its headphone port (3.5mm) and follow it through to my pc speakers and you can crank it up really loud and the quality is as good as playing from a cd/pc!

Using it's own speaker it also goes alot louder then you would want your average radio to go. :)

Great price. How are refurbs from ebuyer ? The white ones are grade B factory refurbished as are the black ones which are Grade A. Safe bet buying one of them ?

Beware! DAB radios are not all they're cracked up to be.

If you’re expecting something markedly better than FM I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed. Originally touted as CD quality but the reality is that it’s about 60% of CD quality on the best BBC broadcasts, the independent stations seem to be another step down from this. If you can get good FM reception it will be superior to anything you can get on DAB.

Another advantage of DAB was supposed to be crackle and hiss free reception. Ironically, if you live in an area of poor FM reception your DAB reception is not likely to be much better. The noise a DAB broadcast makes when it starts to break up may not be described as hiss or crackle but it is impossible to listen to!

The amount of processing required to decode a DAB signal means that DAB radios have a very high power consumption compared to an analogue radio. This is obviously an issue if you want to run your radio off batteries.

Choice of radio stations – at last, something DAB is good at – there are loads of channels to listen to. Hooray!

I've never heard of the DAB+, mentioned above, but this could be another reason to avoid.

In summary: DAB - It sounds really good untill you hear it.

WooHoo!!!

I have had two defective grade B pures from ebuyer. I would go grade A only.

I've had one of these for about 9 months now.....absolutely amazing sound quality, also a best buy in "which" magazine.

I beleive the radio is upgradeable as it has a mini-usb cable slot.

I have also had a B-Grade Pure DAB from ebuyer, it was faulty and I had to send it back.
