Not a happy experience

Miss Ann Thrope, Amazon
16 April 2013
  • Summary: Spent endless time repositioning the antenna and/or the unit itself in an endeavour to achieve decent reception for longer than ten minutes - despite the display indicating 100% signal strength. Thought I would try a comparison test with another appliance, so I attached an antenna to my Miele vacuum cleaner. I have to admit that the Elan sounded better than the vacuum, but only very slightly. So the Elan gets 1 star.

Poor reception. Slow start-up on battery. Solid-construction. Loud.

  • Summary: Update after two years: The radio is a turkey. It often restarts when picked up. The LED screen goes blank making operation difficult. The online manual explaining how to tune presets 5 and beyond is wrong. I know another who has the Pure One and it can also restart when picked up. I bought the Elan II for its rechargeable battery and styling. I'll be looking for better radio engineering when shopping next.

Pure Elan 2 - disappointing

Mountain Rover, Amazon

  • Summary: I had had a Pure Elan ('I') for about six years, having seen it in M&S and decided to treat myself to celebrate a new job. I was pleased and it performed quite well though not without faults over that time (e.g. switching itself off when at a high volume). I needed a radio for my workplace so I decided to take the old Elan there and buy a new DAB radio for home.

  • Summary: Returned as below par. Sounded very tinny to me. Have now bought a Roberts RD21B(ECO4) Ecologic 4 DAB/FM RDS Digital Stereo Radio wth up to 150 Hours Battery Life from Amazon. 10 times better.

nicht empfehlenswert

V. Gruber "Vero", Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe das Radio nicht über amazon erworben, sondern bei einem Elektrohändler gekauft. Das erste Gerät funktionierte überhaupt nicht (!), woraufhin es ausgetauscht wurde. Das zweite Gerät habe ich jetzt seit einigen Monaten und es weist beträchtliche Mängel auf: Gelegentlich funktioniert das Display nicht (entweder es ist darauf gar nichts zu sehen oder die Anzeige hüpft oder es erscheinen wirre Zeichen); manchmal sind einige digitale Sender nicht verfügbar (die...

Software-Fehler im DAB-Teil nicht zu empfehlen.

  • Summary: Möchte man das Radio einschalten passiert erst mal eine Minute gar nichts. Ist die Wartezeit verstrichen steht im Display, Sender nicht verfügbar, danach wieder warten. Sollte es nun einen Radio Sender gefunden haben und man möchte den Sender Wechseln so muss man wieder Geduld haben. Lautstärkeregler entweder ist es zu Laut oder zu Leise. Schlechtes Radio für so ein hohen Preis.
