Thank you Jackie.

I had considered that option as I already have an Echo. I discounted it for
two reasons. Firstly, the Wi-Fi in my home is not too reliable on that floor
due to the nature of its build and secondly as I find the Echo's ability to
recognise my commands too unreliable as it does not always accept my
instructions to it.


Regards, John.

Hi John

You might not want this recommendation, but I think Alexa is as good as
anything out there.  You can choose the alarm sound, different alarm times,
and you can have her in a variety of flavours now such as Echo, Echo Dot,
GGMM speaker, multiroom speaker system like Sonos, and you get a better
radio quality than DAB can ever offer.

Kind regards,

Hello list,

My bedside radio has just about given up after quite a few years. It was a
Pure Sonus radio and I was pleased with its performance.

I am now looking for a replacement.
At one time there was a Pure Tempus-1 which additionally had an element of
TTS built in. Unhappily Pure have stopped marketing these radios.

Could I please have some recommendations for a replacement?
My criteria are:
Bedside size, I.E. not a Hi-Fi component.
DAB facility.
At least two alarms, I.E. one for weekdays and one for weekends.
Snooze capability.

TTS would be a sought after bonus.

Thank you.



Regards, John.
