PURE launches world's first internet-connected bedside radio


London, UK, Wednesday 21st October 2009: PURE - the world's leading radio maker - presents Siesta Flow; its first internet connected bedside radio.

Siesta Flow, with an SRP of just £99.99, is PURE's most affordable internet connected radio to date. Incorporating PURE's award-winning 'Flow' technology, Siesta Flow offers all the functionality of the market-leading EVOKE Flow and top-of-the-range AVANTI Flow, but also provides access to 365 different alarm tones - one for every day of the year - via PURE's on-line portal, the PURE Lounge (www.thelounge.com). Alarm tones range from sleigh bells, perfect for Christmas morning; school bell, ideal for getting the kids out of bed; grandfather clock, perfect for reminiscing; fog horn and police siren for those who find it difficult to wake up and a submarine beep for underwater fans!

A stylish way to wake up to a world of internet radio, DAB/ DAB+* or FM, Siesta Flow uses a Wi-Fi connection to access internet radio, podcasts, listen again content and can even stream music direct from a Wi-Fi enabled computer. Also available from The Lounge is a unique selection of PURE Sounds to relax you to sleep or wake you in a positive frame of mind.

Siesta Flow also features the PURE PowerPort which provides power for USB accessories such as mobile phone chargers, reading lights, bedside fans and cup warmers, solving the problem of having insufficient power points next to the bed. Other features include: a large auto-dimming display; touch sensitive controls; four quick-set alarms; sleep and snooze timers; 30 DAB/FM presets and an auxiliary input for an iPod/ MP3 player.

Siesta Flow is a strategic extension of the hugely successful Siesta bedside radio, creating along with Siesta iDock a compelling family of affordable bedside radios with distinct feature sets. It also significantly improves on the audio with digital amplifiers and custom-wound stereo speakers.

Editor's Notes
*DAB+ is a new and enhanced version of DAB and is now being adopted by many countries as their platform choice for digital radio. It's likely that it will be a few years before UK broadcasters take up DAB+, but the majority of PURE products are already ‘DAB+ ready’.
