PURE CHRONOS CD WAKES UP DIGITAL LISTENERS

by

PURE Digital – a division of Imagination Technologies (LSE:IMG) – presents the new CHRONOS CD, a compact DAB/CD clock radio which delivers superb digital-quality audio from its stereo speakers. Whether wanting to listen to a favourite audio or MP3 CD in the kitchen or wake to crystal-clear DAB radio in the bedroom, the stylish CHRONOS CD is the perfect choice.

CHRONOS CD has easy-to-use bedside features including four completely independent alarms that can be set for weekdays, weekends, daily or as one offs – each with the choice of waking up to either DAB digital radio, FM, CD or a simple tone alarm. For under £100 CHRONOS CD provides a level of functionality and fantastic design that other DAB/CD clock radios can only dream about.

An adjustable sleep timer allows listeners to go to sleep to their favourite station, and the easy to find snooze button means they won't be fumbling around in the morning. CHRONOS CD users can even set the length of the snooze timer for an extra lie-in when they deserve it.

The top loading CHRONOS CD Plays Audio and MP3 CDs and is Compatible with CD, CD-R, CD/RW audio media or MP3/WMA discs with full support for ID3 tags. If that's not enough users can also connect an iPod or MiniDisc and play directly through the stereo speakers.

Based on CHRONOS, the UK's best selling DAB bedside clock radio, CHRONOS CD has a compact design yet brings audio clarity and quality to even the most cramped bedside table or the most well-used kitchen worktop.

CHRONOS CD will be available from September 2006 for just £99.99 (SRP inc. VAT).

CHRONOS CD has an LCD display with 16 x 2 characters, plus additional function icons (volume, time, alarms, signal strength, source selected, repeat and shuffle) and, of course, a large clock. It also features an adjustable backlight (active and standby mode) with auto-dimmer. The light sensor adjusts the display brightness to suit the ambient light in the room so CHRONOS CD won't keep users awake at night.

CHRONOS CD's textSCAN feature lets listeners pause and control scrolling text, giving them time to note down web addresses, competition phone numbers or song titles.

For FM listeners there's RDS support for station name display and RDS scrolling text.

Additional features include large snooze button, stereo headphone socket and a remote control. CHRONOS CD comes with a comprehensive two year warranty.

DAB digital radio provides up to 55 stations in some areas, including BBC radios 1-4, BBC Five Live Sports Extra, BBC7, Classic FM, Virgin, Planet Rock and Oneword. Visit www.pure.com for the list of stations in any postcode area.
