PURE Digital One Elite
As long as there's Chris Moyles, there will always be a BBC Radio 1, and, for that reason, there will always be a PURE Digital radio. A recent offering from the British manufacturer's production line is the One Elite -- the 'radio for everyone'.
This DAB radio, available for around £70, is by no means going to rip out your wallet and beat it to a bloody pulp, but it seems to offer a solid feature set. Has it a place in your kitchen? Let's break it down.
Unlike the majority of PURE's radios, the One Elite -- available in black, white or cream -- has a soft, rubbery finish that surrounds the entire enclosure. An array of silver buttons provides a pleasant contrast, and all sit between the two stereo speakers on the front.
