WHEN dig­i­tal ra­dios fi rst ar­rived in Aus­tralia, they were large, ex­pen­sive and re­quired bulky bat­tery packs.

Pure’s lat­est DAB de­vice shows just how far the gad­gets have come.

The Move 2500 is small enough to fi t in­side a pocket and might get lost in­side a hand­bag.

Its 10cm- long body fea­tures a mono­chrome, three- line screen for show­ing the sta­tion name, time, re­cep­tion, bat­tery life and song ti­tles, if broad­cast, while a scroll­wheel be­neath it lets lis­ten­ers ac­cess the ra­dio’s menus.

Set­ting it up is as sim­ple as se­lect­ing the Au­to­tune op­tion, though head­phones with a gen­er­ous cord must be plugged in as they act as an aerial. An FM tuner is in­cluded in case you stray out­side the re­cep­tion area.

The Pure Move de­liv­ers im­pres­sively crisp au­dio and will do so for up to 14 hours. Re­cep­tion can be tem­per­a­men­tal in­doors.
