PINT-SIZED PUNCH

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

In the past Portron­ics has launched minia­ture ver­sions of fea­ture-rich util­ity de­vices like the por­ta­ble scan­ner and pro­jec­tor. The lat­est from the com­pany is a com­pact sound sys­tem weigh­ing 195 gm.

The rect­an­gu­lar Pure Sound looks like a small speaker. But the mu­sic con­trols in­di­cate that it can do much more. We turned it around to find a plethora of fea­tures. Of course it can play mu­sic and it can play it from a mul­ti­tude of sources. One can ei­ther in­sert a mi­crosd or a pen drive to play the mu­sic. If you have mu­sic in other de­vices like an ipod, phone or a lap­top, the aux­il­iary port can be used.

Pure Sound also has an in­built FM ra­dio that plays most of the chan­nels rang­ing be­tween 87.5MHZ to 108 MHZ. Chan­nels can be changed us­ing the mu­sic con­trols keys at the front.

De­spite the many fea­tures on board, the Pure Sound hasn’t lost fo­cus and the sound out­put is good. But at full vol­ume, we no­ticed some dis­tor­tion. Also, it comes with a recharge­able bat­tery that elim­i­nates the ad­di­tional cost of re­plac­ing bat­ter­ies.
