Pure takes DAB on the road

The beauty of digital audio broadcasting is the multitude of channels crammed into such a small spectrum. Getting all that on the move is tricky – but Pure think it’s got a solution with its Highway portable DAB radio. The dash-mounted receiver plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter, you tune it in via your car’s FM radio and away you go.It comes preset with four stations: Virgin Radio, talkSPORT, Planet Rock and theJazz, but you can tune in a whole bunch more – with its 20 presets –  should those four get boring.Not only that, Pure is boasting of the Highway’s pocket-friendly portability. You can shove a couple of batteries in it, plug in some headphones, and stroll around town laughing at BBC Radio 7. Other features include ‘quickSCAN’, which finds another FM frequency should the one you’re using suddenly spit out local radio halfway up the A1. You can also pause and rewind live radio with its ReVu support.And all for £70.
