Pure Digital DMX-60 DAB/FM/CD/MP3/SD/EPG – acronymtastic micro system

Share

At least you can see from the title that Pure’s latest audio offering – the DMX-60 micro system – has got a fair feature list. Oh yeah, USB too, but I’ll get to that bit later.

The DMX-60 is an update to their successful DMX-50. They’ve bumped up the speakers – they’re now 40 watts RMS per channel “of class-leading audio through custom-wound 5¼” woofers and 19mm Mylar-dome tweeters, housed in two-way rear ported enclosures with custom-tuned second order crossovers.” So there you go.

There’s both DAB and FM radio, each with 99 presets (if you can find that many stations to listen to), and fully supporting IntelliText or FM RDS scrolling text, plus a 7-day DAB EPG (Electronic Programme Guide), on its 8-line graphical LCD screen.

Additionally, there’s support for SD cards which can be used to record live radio or playback stored audio files.

The CD will play CD, CD-R, CD-RW and MP3 CDs and supports CD Text and audio CD playlists.

There’s a built-in alarm function with up to 20 alarms which can be used to play from any of the audio sources. It comes with a remote control and has USB so that audio files can be transferred between it and a PC, plus to keep it up-to-date with new features or DAB radio enhancements.

Available from October priced around £249.99
