Stopped working after 18 months

trsmasher, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: The Pure Lounge system is great but the radio is not very reliable. After 18 months it was inconsistent, working some days and then not others. Needing regular reboots and re-entering the network information. Finally it stopped working completely.. after several exchanges with the online support I returned it for repairs because it was still within the 2 year guarantee. I had bought my mother the same radio and she had the same software/hardware failure within 3 months.

Disappointing internet radio

EssexGeoff, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I've had this over a year now. The internet service via Pure Connect is poor, with frequent interruptions and (attempted) reconnections. I have a good high speed internet connection and my WiFi is fine, have several devices which don't have a problem. Infuriatingly it sometimes get stuck and hangs. Can't change source or turn off. How to reset? Guide doesn't tell you, look online and find you should press a button for a couple of seconds.

Looks nice, sounds good, but it needs the patience of a legion of saints to set up!

Jobsworth, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: This is my fourth Pure digital radio and, on present showing, it will most certainly be my last. The radio itself seems to work fine, as one might expect. The problems start with the network-based additions - which were the reason for paying the price premium and buying it in the first place. The actual connection to my home WiFi was straightforward enough, even if the printed manual was no help at all in doing it.

STEAM RADIO WAS BETTER

  • Summary: So - This is progress? Fifty years ago, you switched on your radio and waited a minute or so for the valves to warm up, a quick twist of the dial got you the program you wanted. Sometimes there was a bit of buzz, and often a hiss in the background. Once the transistor was invented, there was no delay at all - you tuned in straight away and had excellent sound.

  • Excerpt: Firstly, unless you have exceptionally reliable and strong wi-fi then you need to buy an Ethernet adapter. Even with the adapter the listen again stops suddenly, that can be five minutes into the programme or 45 minutes in. I haven't had a successful listen again yet with this radio. Even the DAB has a habit of dropping out. However, it has an easy to read screen that is lit letters only, not with a bright back-light that drowns out the letters.

  • Excerpt: Disappointed with this product. Advertises great features that do not work well in practice. Hoped to stream music from the computer instead of playing CDs, but this feature is complicated and frustrating. Buttons and readout far too small, and on the front not the top so you need to use both hands to operate. Digital radio is fine for main stations - Radio 1/2 etc, but not all local stations. Works fine as an FM player, but why pay so much for that?

  • Excerpt: Bit disappointed with this. Easy to set up and link to router. Once working, it forces you to update to the latest software. If you don't the radio is frozen and you can't use it. Manual indicates that the update could take "up to 5 minutes". Still not updated after 4 hours. It did eventually update but it took overnight. Fairly simple to use, but sound quality is poor and muffled.
