Pure ELAN-ONE FM/DAB+ Radio with Bluetooth - White
About this deal
This device is all about simplicity. Connecting the device to your smartphone is a doddle with excellent Bluetooth pairing, and you can easily search through radio channels using the colour display too. While some of the Pure radios on the market are a little pricier – you do get what you pay for. Take a look at the Pure Avalon N5 for instance – one of the most compelling digital radios available. Today, we’re going to be looking at a slightly smaller and more affordable item in the Pure portfolio – the Elan BT3. The single line display with large characters, an included mains adapter and simple operation make this an ideal radio for many users. Not everyone will want or need displays with lots of information or Bluetooth connectivity. Batteries can be inserted at the rear of the radio
First, the Elan BT3 comes with a sleek, lightweight design – something you’ll be accustomed to if you’ve seen other products like the Pure Siesta Rise before. The Elan is compact enough to carry with you around different rooms of the house – and battery power is available if you don’t want to rely on the mains for your energy supply. One other massive benefit of the Elan BT3 is that like many Pure products, it comes with access to a 3-year guarantee. That means that you have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your radio is protected – no matter what might happen.
All of the radio’s controls and the display are positioned on the slightly angled top of the radio. One of those companies is Pure. Pure Radios pride themselves on delivering state-of-the-art audio solutions to radio lovers around the world. Pure products aren’t just stunning – they’re designed to combine form and function into the perfect audiophile experience.
Another point to note about the Pure Elan BT3 portable, is that it’s one of the few DAB+ radios in its price range that comes equipped with not only Bluetooth connectivity but a full-colour display too. Aside from DAB/DAB+ and FM radio functionality, the Pure Elan BT3 Bluetooth radio also comes with the option to connect your phone to the speaker. You can either use the Bluetooth setting or link your device up using the available aux-in port.
The radio can be powered with the included adapter or AA batteries. On first impressions the radio is smaller than it looks in photos. The radio measures around 18cm wide (excluding the power adapter when it is plugged in) by 10cm tall. Controls are all on the top of the Play 10
News and talk radio stations like the BBC World Service sound fine from the speaker and headphones. User interface and features In this review we’ll set up the radio, see how it sounds and evaluate how easy it is to use. Setting up the Roberts Play 10 Okay, so the Pure Elan Portable DAB radio looks great – and it’s lightweight enough to use in any room of the house too. But, what can we expect when it comes to features?A flexible wrist strap and the light weight of the radio makes it easy to take between rooms. Verdict on the Roberts Play 10 portable radio The Pure radio brand is excellent at creating devices that are intuitive and easy to use. You won’t need to spend hours pouring over a Pure digital radio manual before you can start listening to tunes on the Elan BT3. We loved how intuitive and user-friendly this device was and appreciated the fact that we could listen to music using a variety of different connection options.
