The Good Funky styling; offers both Internet, DAB and FM radio access.
The Bad Clunky menus; fiddly controls; doesn't resume podcasts after re-establishing a Wi-Fi connection.
The Bottom Line The Pure Contour DAB, Internet and FM radio sounds great. Despite some flaws, features like the iPod dock and FlowSongs music-discovery service make it a good buy for gadget lovers.
The PURE Contour is an FM and digital radio that can also connect to thousands of Internet radio stations. It looks funky too, with a pop-out iPod dock, domed design, and touch-sensitive buttons. It's not cheap, though, at around £200, so is it worth the beans?
The Contour's design reminds us of the sun appearing over the horizon, except that it's black and not a ball of fusion and light. It's also quite chunky, and one of the tallest digital radios we've ever seen.
From a styling point of view, we think it's a success. Our only minor gripe is the LCD display. It's functional, but it's tricky to tell what it's showing from a normal standing height -- you'll have to bend down.
