Pure One Mini Series II video review

Read the full Pure One Mini Series II review

Although this Series II model is primarily an aesthetic upgrade over the original Pure One Mini, it's a worthwhile one that solves a pair of that model's problems. It no longer looks or feel cheap or tacky - so while the sound quality may not have improved, the desirability factor has. The scale and volume of the radio's output are a little limited, but the sound it otherwise well-balanced and punchy. On its own, it's a great affordable radio that won't take up the whole work surface in your kitchen. Matched with the B1 battery pack, it's a great diddy device for a holiday, picnic or road trip.

Hmmm or this other pure model is only £27:

Personally i would go with a one of the docking stations that has dab.

So, £75 for a basic one-speaker radio with just about usable battery life.

I've given up on DAB in disappointment. They cost more, the break down and they have no appreciably benefit beyond the extra channels (most of which are not worth it).

Welcome to the future of radio - it's called the £15 AM/FM radio. It works, the batteries last for months and the sound on FM is every bit as good. And with fair handling it'll last for decades.

While it tunes DAB + Stations it does not play and Pure so far have not made a software upgrade available to correct this. While they have done this for their more expensive models. At this stage I am sorry I bought my ONE mine

So after all is the sound "pro" or "con"...?
