These are superb sounding radios with massive reliability problems and very, very poor support from Pure. There are many threads on the web regarding the firmware being flaky and mine has stopped working (OK, I bought it second hand but it did work). I've gone through the terrible instructions to upgrade the firmware and got it working again only to have it fail every time I unplug. I then have to uninstall the firmware from my computer and do a complete reinstall again.
Great Radio etc. the only downside is that originally trial DAB radio signals were weak and if a station only used local county masts then reception could be poor.e.g. BBC Essex . two masts but didn't use Crystal Palace. Hence it was frustrating to get perfect Radio Kent, Radio India, Radio Poland et al. but poor local radio channel Essex and living in county, because of poor local signal quality.Now with 100% signal reception of BBC Essex is much better, but as my house is in a dip reception in certain rooms on the ground floor can be poor for BBC Essex in anticyclonic weather with the radio's fitted aerial. If a favourite channel broadcasts through the a main London Mast ( Crystal Palace) no probem's but if a station is only local - geographical flat spots can interfere with the signal.
