View Quest Retro Radios

View-Quest-Retro-DAB+-Radio-with-30-Pin-iDock-Emma-Bridgewater-Polka-Dot-Lifestyle

With Mother’s Day less than a fortnight away, now is a great time to highlight the beautifully designed, retro radios available from View Quest.

The View Quest Retro DAB+ Radio combines View Quest’s five-star rated sound quality with Emma Bridgewater’s lovely retro design.  This model is available with both the 30-Pin and Lightning iDocks.

A versatile digital radio like the Retro by View Quest allows you to enjoy rich sound quality thanks to dual ultra-wide speakers, which lead to What HiFi awarding the Retro five stars.

View Quest radios effortlessly combine retro design with the latest DAB+ technology, with 10 digital and 10 FM radio station presets you can listen to your favourite stations at the touch of a button. Plus, via the iDock or the 3.5mm aux input, your own music library is accessible through any other audio device.

We also have the Retro Mini in stock, available in 14 colours, including three Emma Bridgewater designs!

VQ ask “why should the technology we buy only be black or silver?” and with the popularity of these designs, it seems many of us agree with them.

These radios are all on offer until the 16th of March.

To take a closer look, and to purchase one of the View Quest Radios featured in this post, visit the Go-Electrical website now. Keep a close eye on the Go website for more View Quest Radios coming soon.

A new radio from PURE? It’s the Evoke F4…

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

There is a new radio on the market which we have all put on our ‘wish list’. It is from PURE and is rather clever – say “hello” to the PURE Evoke F4 radio.

The Evoke F4 Digital and Internet radio with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (to give it its full title) is based on PURE’s multi award-winning Evoke Flow radio which proved very popular. The F4 has been further improved and developed, and has been designed to work with the PURE Jongo range of wireless multi-room products, which offers the ability to synchronised music throughout the home.

Like with other digital (DAB) radios, the user of the F4 can listen to a massive selection of digital and FM radio stations, but as the F4 also features Wi-Fi capabilities the user can access radio stations, music channels, on demand services and podcasts from around the world. There is also the option to stream tracks from PURE Music, which is an online subscription service created for PURE users, by PURE and it offers over 15 million music tracks so there should always be something to listen to, no matter what mood the user is in.

So far the Evoke F4 sounds a lot like the Evoke Flow, but this is where that all changes. The F4 features innovative tagging technology, which means that just by pressing a button the user can find out the name of the track currently playing, and the artist. Once tagged, the track can be purchased there and then, or it can be saved and bought at a later time through the PURE Connect website. It can also be added to any PURE Music playlists that the user may have created. Don’t forget that the PURE Connect App (for iPad, iPhone and Android) can be used to stream audio wirelessly using the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.

If there is a particular radio programme that you can’t miss then there is the ability to record live internet and digital radio. Instant and timed recordings can be done using a USB stick to store the recordings. Ordinarily a 2GB memory stick should hold approximately 15 hours of digital radio. This recording ability not only means that the user won’t miss their favourite programme ever again, but it also allows them to share the recording with friends and family.

Key features:

DAB/DAB+/DMB radio), FM and internet radio (via Wi-Fi or Ethernet)

Wi-Fi supported with WEP and WPA/WPA2 encryption

Streaming capabilities – use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

A Multi-room product –   Use the Jongo family of speakers to enjoy music wirelessly throughout the home

Two alarms

Sleep and kitchen timers

Aux-in socket for iPod or MP3 player

Headphone socket

Large high-contrast OLED display

Optional rechargeable battery – PURE ChargePAK F1

USB socket

Two year PURE warranty

As you would expect with a PURE radio, the sound quality on the Evoke F4 has not been compromised by all the technology. The radio “delivers the best possible sound quality, using highly energy efficient Class-D audio amplification and in-house digital signal processing loudspeaker correction, equalisation and sound profiling.”                                                                                                                 PURE May 2013

To learn more about the PURE Evoke F4 visit the Go-Electrical product page now. The F4 is available now to purchase and retails at £169.99.

PURE Move 2500 is now available in silver

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

There is no disputing that the PURE Move 2500 has been one of Go-Electrical’s best selling products this year, at least 3 have left our warehouse every day, and PURE has recognised how popular this personal radio is and decided to launch it in a new colour. Please welcome the PURE Move 2500 in Silver.

Like the black Move 2500 this personal radio is sleek and slim weighing only 105g and it will fit easily in a pocket. The supplied rechargeable provides up to 14 hours of listening time and has 10 DAB presets and 10 FM presets. It can even be used abroad, so its perfect for flights and listening to whilst lazing round a pool.

The PURE Move 2500 in black and silver are both available from Go-Electrical now, and coming soon to the site is the PURE gel case for the Move 2500. Available in black or white this protective jelly case will stop the smooth sleek radio from getting scratched, and help protect it from damage if accidentally dropped. Keep your eyes peeled for the arrival of these on the Go website.

Another new PURE product

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Our favourite audio manufacturer (PURE of course, silly) will soon be releasing a new product that we have known about for quite some time.  Here at Go-Electrical we are just too excited to finally get our hands on this brilliant piece of technology, and I can guarantee that when it lands no work will be happening in the office! Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the PURE Sensia 200D Connect.

The PURE Sensia 200D Connect is a portable wireless music and radio system, with a colour touchscreen, USB recording, streaming capabilities, fantastic sound and social media capabilities. Technology that is so up to date, anyone who doesn’t buy one will be jealous of what it can do.

The Sensia 200D Connect will stream your choice of music via the Pure Music site and from your own music library on your computer. Hundreds and thousands of internet radio stations are at the tip of your fingers with this product, but it will also pick up DAB and FM radio. Don’t forget that as it uses Wi-Fi there are endless on-demand programmes and podcasts to choose from too! There is also an input point for an iPod or MP3 player so there will always be something to listen to.

If, while listening, there is a song that you like but don’t know who it is by the Sensia 200D will identify the song for you, and with PURE Tag you can also buy songs as you listen to them. With USB recording capabilities, never again will a favourite radio programme be missed as the recording function can be set for a specific time whether it is a one off, or a kind of series link – The Archer’s anyone?

Featuring a beautiful touch screen (but also control buttons, and a remote) it is amazingly easy to navigate, and there are apps that can be used just like on mobile phones – Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, RSS feeds and more. Keeping in touch with friends, and sharing what you are listening to has never been so easy, and to make your friends jealous, why not take your Sensia 200D Connect with you? The optional ChargePak means that the radio is not restricted to the indoors, and you can enjoy music or radio wherever you go.

Team all of the above with amazing PURE Clearsound audio, stunning good looks and the PURE Lounge website and App and you really do have an amazing piece of kit. Never again will listening to the “wireless” be classed as boring or dull. Now, where do we queue up for one of these??

Keep your eyes peeled for the PURE Sensia 200D Connect landing on Go-Electrical. They are currently available to pre-order, but stock will move quick – you have been warned.

AirPlay now available with PURE

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

The newest addition to the PURE Contour family is the Contour 200i Air. It is a compact but surprisingly powerful digital music system featuring ‘AirPlay’ which is Apple’s wireless streaming technology, and a dock for iPod, iPhone or iPad.

‘AirPlay’ enables the user to stream music wirelessly throughout their home, easily and simply. Music or radio station broadcasts can be streamed from a compatible Apple device, or from iTunes to the Contour 200i Air using a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection. ‘AirPlay’ enables the streaming of high quality audio and two-way synchronization – this means that the volume can be altered on either device and it will change on both accordingly. The clever thing about this new audio product is that it enables users to set up a multiroom wireless speaker system, simply put a Contour 200i Air in any room and you can send audio to them all simultaneously – this means that you don’t have to spend thousands of pounds on a speaker system for your home.
