Pure Sensia - Internet & DAB Radio video review

Read the full Pure Sensia - Internet & DAB Radio review

The Sensia promises a lot but sadly delivers less. Were it not for its high price, its slightly lacklustre implementation of Facebook, Twitter and other Internet services might be forgiveable. As it stands, while it is a capable DAB and 'net radio, the Sensia can't be recommended without caveats.

I'd actually compare it to something like the O2 Joggler which these days also does Internet Radio. Ok the Joggler's sound quality isn't anything to write home about but apparently neither is the Sensia. Completely agree about the ridiculous price especially compared to the £100 O2 are asking for the Joggler.

I think it's a little unfair to compare to the two. The Sensia, while not exceptional on the sound quality front is still going to stomp all over something like the Joggler; this is a dedicated radio after all. It also has FM and DAB. Were the interface more responsive and the price more like £175 or even £200 it would be reasonable value.

Any chance you guys will be reviewing the Roberts Stream 83i? The last.fm tie in sounds rather interesting.

I know this is not the Joggler thread, nut - save your money cos the joggler is complete rubbish (I'm being polite).

Pure have a good track record with their radios so am looking forward to trying one of these out in the shops ....

I have a house full of various Pure Radios. The Sensia is the worst. Never operates the same way twice. Poor at finding stations and very poor at tuning in. Great looker but bad performer. So slow to boot up as well
