Conclusion: As an entry-level DAB radio this has everything you’ll ever need. The controls are easy to get to grips with and the overall sound quality is spot on. So, plug it into your home wireless network and you can have digital radio in any room of the house.
Pros: We like the retro style of the ONE Flow while the matt black finish brings it bang up to date. Setting up the Wi-Fi connection is straightforward but we would suggest reading the instructions first, otherwise you will get a little lost. Once set up sound quality is cracking but a nice boomy bass sound that really rattles the windows when turned up. With 30 digital radio presets, 10 FM presets and unlimited internet favourites you’ll never be short of stations to choos...
Cons: Retro can have its faults and the sole display is a six-line green LED screen that is a little on the blocky digit side but it is in keeping with the feel of the radio. However, the biggest problem is when you stray away from the presets and actually try and find your favourite radio stations. With literally hundreds to choose from, the scrolling through can be a chore.
Summary: This is a DAB , FM and Internet radio; however believe it or not that is just part of what this can do. Pure have their ‘Lounge’ and with this service now improved and enhanced it enables your radio to do much more.
Excerpt: No mere digital radio, the One Flow gives you the latest iteration of Pure’s ‘Flow’ technology in a marvellously compact package at what constitutes a bargain price. You get digital radio, internet radio, FM radio, podcasts, BBC Listen Again content, music streaming from PC or Mac, and Pure’s ‘The Lounge’ portal, this last offering soothing background sounds in addition to organising all that online content for you.
Summary: This is a DAB, FM, Internet radio that also has Flow technology that allows you to purchase what you are listening to. However there are other goodies from Pure Digital, this includes the ability to Media Stream and the Lounge.
Conclusion: Don't let the fact that this is a budget option put you off. The silky finish gives it a premium feel and it's a great choice for an internet radio is your wallet isn't overflowing with cash. The internet capability is a big plus point, as is the ability to stream music from your own server. It's all very simple to set up and use, so even technophobes should be able to figure it out.
Pros: Affordable, nice finish, internet capability is good, compact and lightweight
