And the award for 2007's sexiest DAB radio goes to...Pure's Legato II, we'll bet. What can we say? We're just suckers for a set-up wrapped in piano black.Nestled between the two sleek shine speakers is the hub of this substantial micro system. As well as the obligatory DAB receiver there's up to 30 hours of recording to SD card. All can be set using the seven-day Electronic Programme Guide while an internal memory will take care of all your live pause and rewind features.Old school CD is catered for in the fashion of a neat slot loader, which will also spin MP3-packed CD-ROMs, and a frankly over indulgent 20 different alarms can pierce your slumber with the sounds of DAB, FM radio, a CD or MP3.A slightly cheaper version is available with a 'classic' cherry veneer but we'd say gadget gorgeousness is worth an extra £30 of anyone's money. You’d be a ‘classic’ idiot to pass it up.
