Pure Sensia 200D
29 November 2012
Conclusion: I don’t want to come across as thinking that the Sensia is anything other than a very clever unit with a sound quality that is really very likeable. Pure has been working hard to make the digital radio do more and offer functionality that would have seemed impossible even a few years ago. I’m a retro junkie so my personal preference leans more to the retro side of design but I think the Sensia looks bold and imaginative and far more than a normal ‘me too’ product.
Pros: Excellent sound quality for a device of this type, Very comprehensive feature set, Striking appearence, Record radio feature potentially useful
Cons: No lossless streaming, Feels slightly sluggish to use, No shortage of competition
Conclusion: Pure still seems to be ahead of the game with its touch-screen interface for internet radio and by piling on the features, for not much increase in price, the Sensia 200D Connect is one of the best-featured music hubs -- much more than just a radio -- that you can buy for the price.
Excerpt: Pure has had a great 2012. Not only has the company broken from its traditional digital audio comfort zone with a HD television set-top-box - the Avalon 300R Connect - and shown it had a touch of British spirit with its Union Jack adorned DAB radios released during the Jubilee and Olympics, but it has also embraced the cloud more than ever before. The Pure Sensia 200D Connect is a touchscreen all-in-one, one-stop media shop. It is a DAB, FM and internet radio.
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
