Summary: This is just what we wanted, small, good quality, good sound, Wifi, DAB and at a reasonable cost too. Had the unit for a couple of months now and performs very well, great for linking it with you IPoD too (you will just need an in-expensive cable to do this). I would recommend it to my friends and anyone else.
Summary: Bigger than I expected, though sturdy. Charge doesn't last as long as I expected, and when switched on takes a few seconds to kick in. It occasionally loses signal, regardless of whether DAB, FM or Internet is being used. ( 3 1/2 stars really) Then after 3 months stopped working for no reason,( it only lived in one place, and didn't even go outside!) wouldn't charge, and had to be sent back! Very disappointed! 10 days later, replacement came through the post...
Summary: Ordered this as part of the Black Friday offer as have been a "Pure" user for sometime with other products. Pro: very robust; good sound quality; seems to be able to justify the weatherproof tag; Pure brand. Cons: takes an age to start up when on battery power only; charge display doesn't show true charge until a few minutes of use (known issue to Pure, and found in FAQ on forum websites); external Ariel protrudes and is not spring loaded so beware for eyes...
Summary: Great sound - very robust. The internal battery means you can take it anywhere, the DAB gets better reception than my previous DAB radio. I bought an aux cable for a couple of quid and can easily attach my ipod (a dock would have been perfect - but hey there you go.) Haven't explored the wireless steaming yet - easier to just plug in my ipod.
Summary: I've had this radio for a few months now really like using it overall. The sound quality is fine and the DAB and FM reception is great. It's a big heavy beast of a thing and it feels really solid, however the 'metal' parts do scratch quite easily if you, for example, knock it off a low table while using it outdoors.
Sturdy, good reception, good sound...but no recording
25 July 2012
Summary: Bought it to have in the kitchen and take it out to the garden on a sunny day (approximately five times a year in UK). Pros: Sturdy Good mono sound with good range of volume. Not for those looking to be dazzled though. Dial buttons of good quality Very easy to set up including internet connection Very Good DAB radio reception Pure Lounge easy to enroll & to set up preferences for your internet radio from computer Good battery life Cons: No radio recording.
Summary: I purchased the product as a portable internet radio since I live overseas and appreciate listening to BBC radio. As an internet radio the unit functions well, compared to other internet radio's I have which are mains power only the aerial on this unit is very sensitive and able to detect the wireless network at a range better than the others. The unit is readily portable and works well in the garden which was the reason for buying the unit.
Summary: I chose this radio to use in the garden and to take with us on self-catering holidays. As advertised, it appears weather-proofed and rugged. Set-up was straight forward and you need access to the Pure website to do this completely. A telescopic aerial is stored on the back of the radio and has to be unclipped and screwed into the top of the radio for DAB reception but does not always need to be extended. You can switch to FM reception as back-up.
Summary: The Oasis Flow looks great! It is definitely bigger than you expect from having seen the pictures online, and it's weighty. The controls feel robust and of high quality. The battery life seems good enough but it can be better or worse depending on the energy and display settings you use. Setting up the DAB function is very easy. The device scans for stations automatically and tunes itself with no fuss.
Summary: Wie alle Internetradios vom Server abhängig. Man muss hier den Server von Pure verwenden und wenn der nicht online ist, ist eben kein Internetradio verfügbar. Dann ist die Frau des Hauses unzufrieden und ich packe das sonst gute Ding wieder ein...
