Pure Siesta DAB/FM Clock Radio
Advantages: Crystal Sound Quality
I recently purchased a new DAB radio alarm clock as I was fed up with the crackly reception on the preceding model. I love listening to the radio in bed on a Sunday morning and wanted a radio alarm clock that had a good sound quality and was small enough to fit onto the shelf next to my bed. Fortunately the Pure Siesta radio ticked all the boxes and more.
STYLE & DESIGN:
The clock itself has a black casing and silver/aluminium buttons which provide a stylish design. The buttons are easy to press and feel of good quality.
The radio has a DAB and FM tuner so you can receive both types of frequencies. You can select up to 8 pre-set stations for both DAB and FM. I must admit that I do not really use the FM function but it is good to have as a back up. There is also a headphone jack which enables you to listen to the sport results without disturbing your partner (always good)!
From an alarm point of view there are three options to wake up to (1) DAB, (2) FM or (3) a ringing tone. There are various alarm settings which can be adjusted for weekdays and weekends and these are intuitive to set-up.

I purchased my clock radio from Amazon for £49.95 which I didn't think was bad for a DAB radio. I have been really impressed with the ease of set up and operation. The quality of the digital sound is excellent compared to my old FM radio and I have access to a number of other stations that I didn't previously.
I think that the auto-dimming back lit display feature is pretty cool as it adjusts so that it is not so bright at night. Sometimes the text display can be a little jerky but to be honest I usually turn this off so that it is not an issue.
It is nice to be able to set the alarm for the entire week and then just forget about it. With my old clock I had to set the alarm every night which looking back was a bit of a bind.
If you are looking at buying a new DAB radio alarm, I would highly recommend the Pure Siesta for consideration.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
Summary: Would highly recommend
