Unreasonable issue --- software update only on 32-bit PC

Tom Suarez "Cattigara", Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: Well designed radio with good sound for what it is. A bit bass heavy, but there are separate bass/treble controls. Like the other DAB radios I've heard, the sound lacks transparency. Tried upping the treble a bit to artificially compensate, but makes little difference. The display is disappointing---it's clear, but super low resolution and the ticker tape information is slow and anooying, as there is not much on the screen at any one time.

I have increasing niggles over its build quality

  • Summary: Right - it sounds great and its easy to use. It looks great (to me at least) and the controls feel really solid. It has a battery indicator, which is an important feature for me. The pause and rewind is excellent. So what's the problem? Well, my worry, after owning it for just a week, is that it has frozen up on me a couple of times already. That might just be settling in issues, but none of my other DAB's do this.

Pure Elan 2 DAB radio

Amazon Customer "crambrose", Amazon
17 October 2011
  • Summary: I did a fair amount of research before buying a new radio - especially as this was at the expensive end. We wanted a radio to move around the house and to take in the caravan and also to plug either an i-pod or phone into to listen to music. We were also concerned with battery life both from practical and green considerations.

Great radio but.......

  • Summary: I bought this radio despite reading the reviews of some unreliability on Amazon. My radio arrived Saturday and I was very happy with it and would have given it a 5 star rating. But by Monday morning the screen had gone blank. I read the manual, nothing. I called Pure and was directed to leave a voicemail or email my issues. I did both.

Pure Elan II

Parsley, Amazon

  • Summary: Pro's - Great DAB radio at a resonable price. Nice design and finish, best of all a great sound with seperate bass and treble controls. Clear display, simple to use, auxilary input for your MP3 etc if required, battery or mains powered. Cons - Perhaps I've been unlucky, but the first of these great radios I received stopped playing after a couple of days. Everything else worked but no sound!

Good but with faults .

Thomas N. Tyrer, Amazon
16 August 2010
  • Summary: The general quality of this product is good and it seems well made . However , sound quality is no better , if as good as FM . Worst fault is battery life . With standard batteries life is barely 3 hours . This is simply not an option . There is a rechargeable battery available that should last longer but it costs £30 and according to feedback , it has a life of less than 2 years before it needs replacing ~ An expensive excercise .

Pure Elan II

Mr. John Moffat-roberts, Amazon
3 June 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this portable DAB radio to see whether it could detect digital broadcasts in my area (St Johns, Worcester) which is known not to have good reception. It did pick up several stations but the interference was too high to make listening feasible. I took the set away with me to the Fylde Coast, which was converted to digital broadcasting last year, and although it found stations again there was interference.
