PURE MOVE 2500

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.
