The Pure Sensia 200d brings together Internet radio, DAB, FM and uPnP streaming in one stylish device.

One unit, many sources
As well as featuring DAB and FM radios, the Sensia 200d is also Wi-Fi enabled; allowing it to connect to your home network and receive Internet radio and streaming audio via uPnP (Universal Plug And Play).

Touch screen control
Using a large touch screen display you can not only select radio stations but also make use of online apps. Check the latest weather forecast, keep up to date with Twitter and view your streamed album collection on the large, intuitive display. Just like using a smartphone, this brings a whole new level of interactivity to home entertainment. Please note, Facebook is no longer supported.

Pure sound
What's really special about the Pure Sensia is that it combines this effortless interface with excellent sound quality. Widely spaced stereo speakers give a spacious "out-of-the-box" sound quality that might come as a surprise after listening to a typical clock radio. What's more, the sound is evenly balanced with a detailed but not harsh treble and a solid bass. It's not hi-fi, but it's a league ahead of other bedside audio products.

Other great features
If the Internet radio, smart interface and great sound weren't enough, the Sensia 200d goes further still. An auxiliary connection lets you plug in your iPod or MP3 player. If you can't quite stretch across to the display then the handy remote control will navigate around it for you. Although mains powered, Pure's optional ChargePak battery means that the Sensia has the potential to be fully portable - just remember to stay within your Wi-Fi zone if you're listening to Internet radio.

All this technology is wrapped up in a stylish spheroid shape that's already become a design icon. Wake up to a new dawn with the Pure Sensia 200d.

I remember looking at these c5 years ago at £250. The reviews put me off. Wonder if they are any better now with latest software?
I liked the yellow ones
I've just sold mine for £50 that was close. They are good but do drop Internet from time to time
paid £69.95 for one in march, love it to bits have absolutely zero problems with it and use it nightly mainly dab and internet radio but do have a usb stick with 50 odd choice albums..

love that the remote isn't directional so just press the button and it work, wish the remote had a 'sleep' button on it though.

awesome sound too.

I have the original Sensia 200 and its good apart from 2 things, it takes at least 2 mins to boot up and play music & its slow to respond to the touch screen.
Are these problems still present on the 200D?

I think these were well overpriced! We got one back in 2012 for the office. The interface was very slow and clunky and the sound quality was really poor, although it did go quite loud. I think the design would be considered rather dated these days too...
No lan port.:(
I had one of these when they first came out, liked the concept but it was so buggy i returned it.

At this price and (hopefully) with updated software I'm tempted to give it a shot again.
thanks OP, ordered. Been looking for a DAB which also has wireless capability. Will give it a go.

Wow that's lightning fast compared to mine, might consider getting one now, thanks
I bought an original Sensia 200 a couple of years ago and had problems with it and Pure replaced it with a Sensia 200D and I had that replaced about eight times. If it wasn't the inability to connect to WiFi or browse music on a server, it was its failure to boot up - the splash screen would just appear and nothing else - it was unresponsive and had to have the battery removed in order to force a reboot. There were some which couldn't detect DAB signals and some which the LCD touch screen just would not work. The final straw came when the last one arrived with a bug sandwiched in the LCD display.

The apps did not work (Facebook, Twitter and Picassa) and the promised new apps in development never materialised.

It was incapable of remembering anything of any importance - everything such as WiFi passwords and other preferences was wiped out when there was no power e.g. when the damned thing froze and required the battery to be removed.

The design may look 'cool' but it is actually rubbish. It isn't as portable as you might expect - there is no handle and requires two hands to pick it up and a third to pick up the stand - which is not attached.

You may be lucky and get a good one but my Sensia 200D saga lasted almost a year and I hate to think how much time I wasted e-mailing, telephoning and waiting in for collections and deliveries. I have a Pure Evoke 3 which has worked for about eight years but this thing doesn't just look like a lemon, I assure you.

Don't do it...
roberts do one called istream 63i I think and it's brilliant. ......check out the what hifi reviews for it before you take the plunge on this.

It's OK, yes, but unlike the Sensia, it can't cope with the new BBC iPlayer formats, so 'listen again' won't work.

Who's Ian Port?

Who's Ian Port?



An ethernet port - used to connect the device to a network using a RJ45 wire.

Who's Ian Port?



LAN port. Alternatively referred to as an Ethernet port, network connection, and network port, the LAN port allows a computer to connect to a network using a wired connection. The picture is a close up of what a LAN port looks like for a network cable using a RJ-45 connector.

I have both the 200 and 200D. 200 is laggy and the touch screen is crap. 200D is worlds apart though - no lag and the touchscreen is great. Sound is great for such a small unit. Apps on the 200 are unusable bit we have inaccuweather on the 200D and that works fine.
