The words ‘All In One’ normally relate to a printer that also copies and scan. Here it is an audio device that has everything in a single unit that measures 38x18x11cm. So you have DAB+, FM, Internet Radio, CD, Spotify, Podcasts, Bluetooth Audio and Auxiliary Input via 3.5mm socket.

The initial setup is controlled from a 6x5cm screen on the top of the unit, the first thing is to connect it to your Wi-Fi network once done you see a screen that displays eight icons in two rows of four. Control can be from buttons in front of the screen and you can move through selections sequentially. There is also a small remote control that allows you to make changes from the comfort of your chair. When the unit is off but still has power connected the display will show the current time and date.
To the right of the screen towards the front of the top is a slot to insert any CD and behind the slot are five touch buttons to act as controls for the CD.
To the right of the CD slot is a circular volume control that if depressed for a couple of seconds then turns the unit on/off. In front on this 3cm button are two rows of three touch buttons that are Preset buttons for the DAB and FM radio stations.
Behind the on/off button at the top of the back is an eleven section pull out rod aerial for the FM radio this if fully extended vertically stretches to 60cm. Also on the back near the base is the two pin mains lead near the left edge. Near the right edge is a USB ‘C’ port, a headphone socket and the 3.5mm input for Auxiliary connection.
So this covers any audio connection that is current as those of us who still have iPods can utilise the 3.5mm socket to relay its output.
The small 8x4x.5cm remote control has 17 buttons including a five button joystick it is powered by a circular watch battery that is supplied, just pull out the small plastic strip and it’s ready to go.
It is available in either black or white either has a fabric front to the unit covering the rather good speakers. The speakers have a 100w output level split between the tweeters and woofers.
This is not a cheap unit, no Pure items are, it’s a quality item.
