Summary: The Pure Sensia 200D Connect is a lovely little bit of kit that avid radio listeners will love. There might be more complete systems around, and the touchscreen can at times feel cumbersome, but it sounds great, and offers plenty for radio and podcast fans.
Conclusion: An important but ultimately minor update to the original Sensia, the Pure Sensia 200D Connect makes a stylish accompaniment to just about any bedroom, lounge or kitchen. However, while the thing runs quick enough now thanks to an upgraded processor, the interface doesn't feel slick enough to relay all the content it has access to with anywhere near as much style as its exterior.
Pros: Has access to masses of content, Stylish design, Large screen, Respectable sound quality
Cons: Awkward interface, Little-to-no potential for Spotify et al in future

high-quality digital/Internet radio with wireless streaming
Excerpt: Pure is one of the most prolific producers of digital radios in the world, and are now producing units that have plenty of other features that just the ability to tune into your local and international radio stations. I note that the manufacturer is keeping away from calling it a digital radio, even thought that is its main purpose. I guess it is because of the wifi ability and to connect (ha! ha! – ‘connect’ – get it?
Pros: Tonne of functionality; easy to use; lots of variety
