The Pure Contour is a tabletop internet, DAB and FM radio. It includes a remote control and iPod dock. If you're not an iPod owner you can still play music from other MP3 players through the radio's speakers via a connecting cable, but how good do digital radio stations sound on the Contour? We put it through our tests to find out.

We purchased this model because of it's internet radio features. We can't pick up FM or DAB in the office so thought we try this. Pros: Sound is very good for it's size and having 19,000 online stations from around the world provides enormous variety. I like listening to stations from California.Cons: Its virtually impossible to change stations without using the remote. Touch controls on top of radio area bit inaccessible and those on front of radio are too small.To get the best out of this radio you really to access the online stations and need a broadband connection. You'll need to create various music folders on your computer and load stations into them, eg Jazz folder, Rock folder, RnB folder and then upload them to your radio (it's very easy using Pure's website). It sounds complex but its not.I'm very impressed but it's not suitable for your old granny. You need to be a bit computer savvy. At CES 2012 Pure announced a new model for release later this year that looks easier to use.
