About this deal
The Menu button opens the various options which are relevant to the current mode. The large display makes these quite easy to browse and alter.
Like most of Pure’s radios, though, it performs very well, considering. It has the warm, surprisingly bassy sound that we’ve come to know and love over the years of listening to the company’s DAB boxes. The sound is still small-scale – not a hi-fi-replacement – but it doesn’t have the very boxy, traditional worktop radio sound we heard recently in the Roberts Wave 105. If you’re willing to cut the ties with traditional radio broadcasting entirely, the Logitech Squeezebox still does significantly more – offering Spotify streaming, plus access to a handful of other services. However, the mix of new and old that’s within the Pure One Flow is arguably much more flexible. Find yourself without an internet connection? Switch to DAB. DAB signal start to act up? Step down to FM.All the benefits of DAB more station choice, station selection by name, scrolling text display, easy autotune, and crisp, clear sound. Around 20 hours of portable DAB listening from the optional, rechargeable ChargePAK-C6L™; around 35 hours from six C size batteries; or connect to the mains for home listening. Pure have used their expertise as world leaders in DAB to produce a radio that not only sounds great but is intuitive and easy to use too. The Pure Elan One has some welcome improvements over the Pure One Mi range. A larger full colour screen, a rotary knob for the volume and battery and mains power options are all useful updates. Compared to other budget radios the less shiny plastic finish makes it feel like a more premium product. As of December 2020 the Pure Elan One is the cheapest digital radio we can find from the brand. Sound quality from the Pure Elan One
The manual for the Pure One doesn’t list a way to display the serial number. We’ve tried on our One Mi Series 2 and can only see the software version and the device identifier. If you still have the box for the radio the serial number may be displayed on the outside. In many ways it is a bigger, stereo version. There's a, perhaps more mature, matt finish, and there's the addition of the ability to pause, rewind and fast forward live radio. This ‘Revu' button automatically records the past 15 minutes so you can always rewind if you missing something.From our state-of-the-art headquarters near London, we aim to unite the world of music and radio with timelessly beautiful designs, unrivalled sound quality and flawless connectivity.

The Pure One Elite is the radio Pure hopes you will buy should you want something a bit more substantial than the Pure One Mini. Switching frequently between DAB, FM and Internet stations during our testing, we did find that the maximum volume varied dynamically depending on the source. DAB is a little quiet in comparison to many net stations, which might become a problem if it has to contend with the sound of DIY or an extractor fan (if, like us, you enjoy a spot of DAB while cooking). It is a little louder than its Roberts rival, and at least on-par with other small radios.

Pure’s connected units use more advanced AMOLED screens, but the monochrome display here is perfectly clear.
