Pioneer of digital radio and abuser of capital letters, PURE, has launched its latest creation just in time for Xmas. This time the company has set its sights beyond the kitchen and the CHRONOS takes the form of a stylish bedside clock-radio. Inside PURE’s signature polished aluminium case, you’ve obviously got the advanced DAB receiver giving you access to up to 55 stations in much better quality than FM can achieve, but to match this PURE has put some efforts into making sure the alarm clock side is similarly sophisticated. You can set four different alarms and there are also multiple snooze settings, you can set the brightness of the LCD display and choose between alarm types. It looks pretty swish, as you would expect from an £80 clock-radio, but I wonder if all the effort to improve the alarm clock functionality might make general operation a bit complicated.
