Good Radio, great sound. I have had mine for 2 years and it was £49.99 from Marks so this will probably go up in price and hasnt dated!

cool

Excellent price for a good DAB radio, ideal for a kitchen. This is likely to be end of line stock, as this radio is now superceeded by the twin speaker version.

its the One Classic that has replaced it with the lower power consuption, MP3 input and ReVu..

"Crystal clear sound" is certainly a euphemism. Since most stations broadcast with a rate of 128kb in MPeg Layer 2 (not MP3!), the sound quality is significantly below FM*radio. It should be fine for the kitchen, but if you really want to listen to the radio, it can quickly gets on your nerves.
#5
I can vouch for these. I've got 3 different DABs and this one gives the best reception of the lot. Factor in another £20 for the battery pack as you can't use standard batteries (at least you can't in the mini). Cheapest I have found for battery pack is here although they are out of stock until the 23rd.

And how do you justify your statement that 'the sound quality is significantly below FM'? You can say that in your opinion it is, but in fact the vast majority of people won't agree with you.

Google something like 'dab fm sound quality' and you'll find dozens of sites backing the statement up, both scientifically and based on real-life observation.

That's not to say you can't get decent enough sound from DAB if you've a strong signal (and you get more channels, which is the main thing) but the quality isn't as good as FM. Plus, if you do have a weak signal, FM 'hiss' is a lot less annoying than digital interference where it's all or nothing...

:thumbsup: this is a great little radio at this price even if end of line. My family have 2 and for sheer portability [esp using the Pure ChargePak Battery Pack referred to by Buelligan - £18 at Car Auto Giant is another bargain as these usually retail at £30!], robustness, reception and decent quality of sound.
#9
:whistling: PS: just tried to order thePure ChargePak Battery Pack from Car Audio Giant and they are looking nearly £10 for shipping bringing price up to nearly £28! Forget it
:-D re Pure One dab radio you can get another 5% off through Topcashback or Quidco

that is the wrong chargepak for the One & One Classic, and you can use standard batteries with the One & One Classic, it is one of the reasons I have chosen the One Classic over the One Mini for my Bday pressie(tomorrow YEH)

got this last yr for around £40,
tis a great radio, i recommend it.

Stupid question I know but I have to ask. The only radio we use is the alarm in the bedroom (and the reception is ****). Does this have any type of alarm facility?

I'm with Tommy2 on this one...whilst DAB does not have FM's interference issues, it is far less musical when listening through a good hi-fi system, sounds thin & dynamically flat compared to FM. :roll:

one of the reviews on the marks web site mentions connectivity to mp3 player
is it correct,can some one confirm

This offer is for the ONE not the MINI ... Right?

So the PURE website says (of the ONE) ...

'ONE is a truly portable DAB radio. ChargePAK™ ready as standard, ONE also offers class-leading battery life, with around 35 hours of DAB listening from six standard C size batteries.'

So it maybe more expensive in the long run but you could use batteries if you wanted ... or am I missing something?

wow, thanks, ordered, my mum has just broken the transformer plug on hers(!) so new silver one for Mother's Day!
#17
I can't see the point of people slagging DAB against FM on this unit when all this is good for is a run of the mill radio for the house . Your voting on the radio deal NOT the quality of DAB against FM !

It's got a sleep timer but no mention of a proper alarm.

My dad's got one of these and they are really good.

What you will find are some articles from a few very vociferous 'audiophiles' who have a vendetta against DAB because they would prefer far higher bitrates to be used even though this would mean far fewer stations and therefore would never be commerically viable for broadcasters. They are the same people who complain that the general public are prepared to buy compressed downloads from iTunes rather than CDs.

The reality is that a number of major surveys have been conducted which show that the vast majority of listeners (c.88%) prefer the sound quality of DAB to FM.

Of course people are entitled to their opinion, and if they are real audiophiles they can listen to higher bitrate audio streams online or buy the CD.

At the end of the day, this Pure One is a mono portable radio and the sound quality for most people will be fantastic.

I take your point but personally I always check out the comments looking for peoples views of the product, not just if it is cheaper than anywhere else or not, surely, anything that helps you decide if you want it or not is a good thing, after all, the site is all about getting a bargain and its not much of a bargain if it doesnt do what you want it do when you get it :thumbsup:

had a pure one for 2 years and its been faultless and reception if good where i live and sound is fine...
the only minor criticism is that i wouldnt say its truly portable as it doesnt have a proper handle, but then for me that isnt a problem
bough the wife a pure classic which replaces this one 2 weeks ago for £47, main diff is it has the pause rewind function (cant see much use in it tbh)
the charger is for the one mini, you need this one for the one (i have one and the charge lasts ages, for me charged it and its lasted 2 hours a week for about 1 year!)

Love this little unit.
Have one in the living room and one in the bedroom.

Can't afford one for the kitchen sadly :(

If you are after a decent selection of stations wire your freeview or Sky box into your amp (assuming you've got one)
