Pure updates Classic DAB radio with Listen Later feature
Listen later, perfect for all your Archers fans

The Pure One Classic Series II has had a lick of paint and a bit of an upgrade with new 'Listen Later' functionality added to the DAB radio.

The play/pause button can be used to pause live radio as well as having the ability to schedule a recording – be it a one-off or a recurring show – using the clock programming function.

There isn't much memory on the radio, so you can only store one recording at a time and the length of the programme you can record depends on the bit rate of the station broadcasting it (but it's generally somewhere between 30 and 180 minutes).


Safe to say, if you're looking for something that uses an electronic programme guide (EPG) to schedule multiple recordings, this isn't the radio for you.

But it's not a bad little DAB for what it is; you can use batteries or the mains to power it (or an optional rechargeable pack from Pure that will set you back £30), and its LCD screen offers all the usual information.

There's also an MP3 input jack, clock-timer, space for 30 station presets and comes in black and white finishes.

If this tickles your fancy, the Pure One Classic Series II hits the shops this month, with a UK price tag of £64.99.
