PURE CHRONOS II WAKES UP RADIO LISTENERS IN STYLE

by

London, UK, 18th September 2007: PURE Digital – the world leader in DAB digital radio – presents Chronos II, the enhanced follow-up to Chronos, part of the UK's best selling DAB clock radio family.

Chronos II retains the stylish design that made the original so popular, but is now available in a choice of two colours, with an improved display and automatic light sensor. Chronos II also adds FM with RDS functionality.

Chronos II features highly configurable alarms to match listeners' lifestyles. There are four independent alarm settings; owners can wake to tone, DAB or FM, and set different alarm times for weekdays, weekends, every day or just once. Chronos II lets listeners go to sleep to one DAB station and wake to a different one – and even the volume of the radio alarms can be set individually. The sleep timer fades out gently to avoid a rude awaking and the alarm volume fades up to ease users from sleep. A user-configurable snooze timer and sleep timer round off the features on this perfect bedside companion.

The large, clear clock benefits from a light sensor which automatically adjusts the display brightness to suit the light levels in the room. Users can browse extra broadcast text from participating stations thanks to Intellitext® and pause and control scrolling text with TextSCAN™. New features can be added as they become available thanks to the integrated USB port.

As part of PURE's EcoPlus range, Chronos II has been designed to minimise environmental impact. It has a power consumption of less than 1W in standby and 2W in operation which is significantly lower than the industry average. All EcoPlus packaging is made from a minimum of 70% recycled material, finished with water based varnish, and documentation printed with soya-based ink on 100% recycled paper.

Available in white or anodised aluminium, Chronos II will be in the shops from the end of October 2007 at an SRP of £69.99. For more information, please log onto www.pure.com or call +44 (0)1923 277488.
