Summary: DAB is great apart from the lack of BBC 5 Live Sports Extra - but I can get that on Pure Connect (internet radio). That's great too - listening to crystal clear broadcasts from the States is fantastic. But the UI is SO clunky.
Pros: hundreds of stations , sounds great for the £
Summary: I'd always coveted the Sensia from the time of it's launch in 2010 but it remained at the top end of the internet radio market. I consoled myself with a less sexy if perfectly formed first generation radio by Intempo. Enter Richer Sounds and that sub-£100 price tag.
Summary: I like to listen to catch up radio at night and my Hudl decided to eat its battery during the day so was flat every night. Having some Christmas money in my pocket I decided to take a look online for an alternative.
Summary: The PURE Sensia 200D is potentially a serious piece of audio gear. We get poor transmission signals in our area so my primary reason for going for the Sensia was its ability to stream interne radio from our Wi-Fi. I found the set-up to be fairly straight forward, connecting to my Wi-Fi first time.
Pros: looks great , sounds great , loads of connectivity
Cons: i don't find the touchscreen to be as 'laggy' as o , drops the network more than i would like
Summary: I have had a PURE DAB radio alarm for a number of years and decided to upgrade this to include Internet Radio. The unit is larger than most alarms, but not that big that it does not sit comfortably on my bedside cabinet. Due to it's larger size the sound quality is much better than my old unit.
Summary: Compared to previous radio alarms I have owned this is exceptional, although this has been far more expensive. Great radio reception and sound from the stand alone unit. The display is clear and easily read.
Pros: great reception , good sound from stand alone unit , clear and easily read display , usb available to charge phone or other device
Summary: Odd shaped rugby ball pod is actually very practical. I have it in the kitchen - connects easily to wi-fi and is happy to play MP3s from a 16Gb usb stick. Sound quality is rather good - better than similar priced Roberts Ecologic machine that I also own, and with a higher volume ceiling.
Pros: warm solid sound , very flexible , internet radio , clean screen
Summary: Daunting range of internet stations available. Good sound through internal speakers but I am running it through a stereo amp so it is a shame that there is no line out (I am using the headphone output). Strong DAB reception on its own aerial and FM is good as well. Great for accessing podcasts.
Summary: I wanted this modern style DAB Radio for a few months. Bought during the Black Friday sales and I couldn't find a Radio anywhere near that price with the same specifications. Excellent value. Unit sits pretty in my 8m2 Kitchen and the sound fills the room comfortably.
Pros: modern styling , value for money , functionality , colour touch screen
