About this deal

Our mission is to make complex audio devices and technologies so simple, easy and intuitive that everyone can enjoy listening to their daily audio dose with our devices. Pure pioneered DAB radios in the digital radio industry more than 20 years ago and has built a reputation for timeless, beautiful design, high quality and great sounding audio. As mentioned above, one of the first thing we noticed in our Pure Elan E3 review, was the fact that this device is very easy to use. You don’t need to spend forever reading your Pure Elan E3 manual before you can get started. If you're still using an analogue FM radio, it might be time to switch over to a digital radio instead. That's because DAB radios offer a wider range of stations to choose from and the sound tends to be crisper as there's less disturbance.

The reduced, clear design with its compact measurements conceals lavish sound technology combined with ridiculously easy handling, allowing you to use your internet radio in your living room, your Bluetooth radio in the kitchen, and your very compact radio in the bathroom, while the radio alarm is ideal for the bedroom and the portable radio provides you with sound all around - in your own outdoors space or on the road. No cable required: Your favourite tunes wherever you want them

Applying the software update

Stable reception: Bluetooth radios with DAB+ technology offer stable quality, even if reception is weak, while FM radios often come with static noise.

DAB/DAB+ radio is the broadcasting and reception technology of the future. The quality of the signal and, as a consequence, of the music received, is significantly better than that of FM radios. Even though DAB/DAB+ radios work without long antennae, their signal is much more stable and easier to receive. Elan DAB+ produces surprising audio performance from a compact form factor. A 3-watt full range speaker powered by a digital amplifier ensures audio plays loud and clear. With 8 EQ settings, including your own personal mode, you can easily tweak the audio output to make all genres of music sound amazing. Colour screen Out of the box the radio sounds reasonably good for a radio at this price. Music sounds a little bass heavy and when tuned into Heart on DAB digital radio the bass can be too imposing and the vocals sound a bit dull.Compared to FM (Frequency Modulation) radios, DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) radios offer several advantages. DAB+ digital radios have been developed and launched in Europe from the late 1980s. They transmit radio signals digitally, resulting in better sound quality. In addition, DAB radios offer an extended choice of content, as more radio stations (radio programmes) can be transmitted on a single frequency. DAB radios are less prone to failure and come with less static noise than FM radios. At the same time they offer more options for interaction, as they can receive text, images or even videos in addition to sound. DAB+ digital radio brings you a diverse range of great content in highly-detailed, digital-quality sound; much of which is only available on digital radio. Elan Connect+ automatically finds all available digital stations in your area for an easy listening experience, plus there’s FM radio for any station that has not yet gone digital. World radio

The Pure Elan Connect+ isn’t really designed for parties or even BBQs, although it does a reasonable job outdoors. However, even with basic stereo imaging from its two speakers, the 3W units don’t provide much power. The Elan E3 is simple to use. It has a nice rotary volume control that is more satisfying to use than having to press separate ‘up’ and ‘down’ buttons. Storing preset stations is also straightforward using the dedicated preset buttons, so you don’t need to scroll through a menu like you do on many other small DAB radios.A practical button layout and large vibrant display makes operating Elan DAB+ a pleasurable experience. Browsing menus, selecting stations and adjusting settings is simple and intuitive. For around the home This radio can deliver exceptional music whenever, and wherever you need it, whether you’re using the Elan as a bedside radio, or garden listening station. Sound quality: You can expect a clearer and fuller sonic image than with FM. The quality increases along with the transmission frequency (k/Bit). Digital radios, also known as DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting Plus), work by transmitting digital radio signals instead of analog signals, as is the case with traditional FM radios. In other words, radio stations transmit their programmes digitally.

At first glance, the Pure Elan E3 looks very similar to the Pure Elan BT3 and other products in the Elan range. There’s also plenty of similar features to enjoy too, such as a full colour screen, and a headphone input for when you want to listen to your favourite music privately. Whether you need the right sound to wake up to in the morning or you want to listen to a playlist of your favourite tunes on Spotify or Apple Music over and over again - no problem if you use Bluetooth to connect your smartphone to a Pure radio / speaker! With their clear design language, smart gadgets offer premium sound at the drop of a hat or on the fly - quite literally - and you will find anything from portable outdoor speakers, premium music systems, radio alarms or kitchen radios in our extensive Pure range. DAB+ digital radio brings you a diverse range of great content in highly-detailed, digital-quality sound; much of which is only available on digital radio. Elan One automatically finds all available digital stations in your area for an easy listening experience, plus there’s FM radio for any station that has not yet gone digital. Switch-on the Pure Elan Connect and you’ll be taken straight to network settings, not only for fetching internet radio stations and podcasts, but also to keep time. There follows a slightly confusing set of choices for things such as daylight savings – for which the default is ‘no’… why would anyone want a radio that gives the wrong time for half the year?!. Nevertheless, at least connecting to the home Wi-Fi network is easy if you’re using a WPS-enabled Wi-Fi router. Instead, you can jump straight into action, setting your favourite stations to one of forty available spaces on your list of preferred channels.What’s more, the DAB radio setup ensures that you’ll be able to find countless great channels to listen to.
