"good brand good service"

We have numerous Pure brand Dab radios, having tried others they are my first choice all round as someone who has years of experience working with sound.

I prefer the weight & therefore sonic ability of a wooden cabinet wrap which really adds to the overall tone of a speaker unit, this is PLASTIC, & therefore the pocket size doesn't want to drag you down, therefore it's a shallow speaker in a plastic casing, this means less able sonically, however if you truly want portability & are prepared to lower your sonic expectations this will be fine, there are plenty of times when I wish i'd got something I could just wander down the street with & listen to the last 5 minutes of a programme scenarios, in which case this will do me well.

Nor do I want to resort to the discomfort of ear buds, I wish to stick a radio on a stable surface & potter around.

Good for sheds, workshops, out & about (with a battery chargepak).
Not good for beard stroking audiophile fella's (myself included) as a main unit, it simply won't cut it.

The FM operation will give you lots of extra battery life compared to dab which sadly is power hungry, so if opting for a batterypack TRY to limit volume in order to eke out more hours, & charge every day to ensure longevity.

As a little unit with tinnier sound than a higher price unit I can forgive it, the 2 year pure warranty is excellent & having had to call upon their service in the past for another (different radio) I can only state they have a customer for life.

it's not a £120 dab so don't expect it to be, this is the low end of a serious brand (Pure are very good software encoders typically & part of a very big business) resulting in good signal & software upgradability typically.

This'll do for me as a "sound or silence" model.
Good brand, good service

    Not £120, so how much is it?
