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
Excerpt: There are quite a few speakers now available that use Apple ’s AirPlay technology to stream CD-quality music over your home Wi-F i network. However, Pure’s new Sensia 200D uses a rival wireless system known as DLNA (digital living network alliance). See all Audio reviews .
Excerpt: Packing FM, DAB and Internet radio, the Pure Sensia 200D Connect sits alongside the Pure Contour 200i Air on the Pure top table and takes on the likes of the Roberts ColourStream and the Magicbox Beam in the quest for radio touchscreen fun.
Pros: PureStream connectivity, Great touchscreen, Good sound quality
Cons: Expensive price-tag, Pixelated display, Battery cost extra
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
Conclusion: Pure's Sensia 200D Connect, er en utrolig brugervenlig digital radio, som kan utrolig meget, selvom den er forholdsvis lille af størrelse. Den er ikke overfyldt med alle mulige overflødige knapper og indstillinger. Lyden er rigtig god, og den har masser af lækre features, som f.eks. Facebook, og mulighed for at opsætte sit eget lille slideshow, fra en hvilken som helst mappe på netværket.
