Pure ONE Flow combined DAB/FM/wifi internet radio aims for affordability and portability

Styled on the award-winning Pure One Classic, the Pure ONE Flow adds wi-fi internet radio functionality alongside DAB and FM.

Read our review of the Pure One Flow here from March 2015.

NOTE (Feb 2015): The firmware inside the Pure ONE Flow has been updated to ensure the radio can stream the BBC's high quality radio streams and access all on-demand ("listen again") content. We have a ONE Flow and can confirm we are receiving a high-quality stream of BBC Radio 3 easily and without issue following this firmware upgrade. The radio also streams BBC on demand ("listen again") radio content from the last 30 days. As of March 2015, it is not possible to access protected sports coverage from the BBC using the receiver's internet radio functionality, due to broadcast restrictions. You can continue to hear full commentary intended for UK listeners on DAB, either on BBC Radio 5 live or 5 live sports extra.

The Pure ONE Flow can be used here and abroad, thanks to its DAB+ and DMB-compatible chipset, which means you can, for example, take the radio to France or Australia and still be able to tune in to your favourite radio stations on digital radio.

If you're near a wireless router, you can stream a choice of more than 10,000 radio stations from across the world with the ONE Flow. If you need a hard-wired connection to your router, you can also pick up a mini USB ethernet adaptor for the radio.

The ONE Flow links to Pure's own wi-fi internet radio portal Pure Connect for access to thousands of streams in the UK and abroad, where you can also set up your own bank of wi-fi radio presets (favourites) and access podcasts. There's also access to the BBC's Listen Again streams with the ONE Flow supporting http live streaming, WMA (Standard V9), AAC, MP3, MP2 and Real Audio. You can also buy music directly from the radio, which can be downloaded via the radio portal.

If you fancy taking your radio out into the garden, the optional ChargePAK E1 fits the ONE Flow and gives around 25 hours' use from a single charge.

The ONE Flow can be hooked up to an external micro system or larger hi-fi separates via its 3.5mm stereo out socket. You can also simply plug in headphones (and listen in stereo where the programme is broadcast in stereo).

The large green-on-black display shows station and streaming information - and there are dual alarms, a kitchen timer and a handy sleep timer.

30 DAB and 10 FM presets can be set, though these are accessed using controls rather than being a set of direct-access keys. FM RDS RadioText and Station Naming is also featured - handy when you want to catch up on a station you just can't stream or is not available on DAB.

With its 3.5mm audio input, the ONE Flow can also be used as a speaker system for your iPod or MP3 player. It's also able to connect to your smartphone over your home network, allowing you to play music via Lumia Playto, for example, via a Windowsphone.

Pure ONE Flow is available for under £100 from a variety of retailers - you can also check the left-hand column to see where to get your hands on one. The radio comes with a comprehensive three year warranty.
