Design

With such a fresh and funky yet sophisticated design the Sensia is destined to be the centre piece of any room with its distinctive, elliptical shape and choice of four striking colour finishes. Choose from bright red, sleek black, vivid yellow or cool white. The moulded stand, which allows you to angle the radio to the best viewing position for you plus a matching remote control for ease of control, ensures that both design and usability have been incorporated into one stunning piece of audio equipment.

Touchscreen

Using the touchscreen you can view and interact like never before on a digital; scrolling and spinning lists, tapping to select, sliding controls and swiping to change views (just like the iPod). You can also choose between a multi-panel or a full screen view. The screen consists of a visual panel for viewing Apps, station slideshows or album artwork. As well as a list panel for scrolling through lists of radio stations or music stored on a PC (accessible via a Wi-Fi connection). Plus a now playing panel and a control bar for operating your Sensia. To view the PURE Sensia in action watch the video by simply clicking Play…
