Excerpt: When my old music system broke, I set out for John Lewis with 4 main criteria. 1. To get a system that I could play really loud without distortion; 2. It should be small enough to fit on shelf in my kitchen diner; 3. I could plug my ipod into it; 4. It should have DAB radio. This would keep all of the family happy, as I love radio, my sons love their ipod music, and all of us do most of our entertaining in the kitchen diner.
Summary: I bought this after auditioning and reading other reviews. I wanted a very good quality internet, digital radio and media player for the bedroom. In most respects I am extremely happy with the Avanti Flow. The sound quality is good - almost Hi Fi with the built-in low frequency driver turned on; this more than met my expectations. The build quality is excellent and the heavy chassis no doubt contributes to the solid, integrated sound that the unit puts out.
Summary: The magazine and Amazon reviews made my mind up for me and I am not at all disappointed. Stylish, compact, easy to use and set up. Our area has poor analogue reception, hence the reason for going for an internet radio, but the DAB radio works great with several bars of signal strength, with the antenna still folded. I have not had the need to stream music from my PC to the radio as I use an ipod and are spoilt with the choice of radio stations.
Summary: I've had this for a month and I love it. Its not perfect in all areas but for how I use it, I'm delighted with it. Its simple to set up and it was connected to my router in minutes. The sound, as most reviewers point out, is brilliant as is the build quality. The remote control is not perfect and feels a bit 'wooly'. You have to re-press buttons sometimes.
Summary: I got this product last week,and thought it good enough to write a little review. Thought it might be wise to mention i am a 41 year old male, i wanted this for the lounge for days when my wife is reading and im sufing the web, instead of having the tv on or the large stereo on in the dining room.
Summary: This is a great piece of kit. It does so much with ease: DAB radio - great tuner FM radio - not used it yet Media player - connected first time thru wireless to my aged Maxtor media server and plays tracks with no flaws. Internet radio - use Pure's website (the lounge) to connect and configure your stations, podcasts and listen again programs, again plays flawlessly and easy to connect. My signal registers at about 50% but this plays everything with no problem.
Summary: I think the radio is excellent! The sound is good, the menu is fairly straight forward and connecting to my media player and to the Internet radio was easy. I am extremely pleased with the radio. The remote control is useless, Why? because you cannot use it remotely. You have to stand in front of the radio to see the menus. Yes you can turn it on and off, mute the sound and change the volume.
Amazing Sound, Fantastic Usability - Pure Brilliant

Summary: Where can you listen to all those business podcasts, seminar CDs and audio files that come as bonuses with your online purchases of Internet marketing material? Normally at your computer, of course. But with the brand new Avanti Flow unit from Pure, you can listen in any room of your house or even in the garden. When you use the Pure media server you can even listen anywhere where there is a Wi-Fi connection when armed with your username and password.
Summary: First impression is that you have a piece of quality in your hand - and right you are. Second, after plugging it to the AC-outlet is that the sound is just marvelous. Considering its size excpecially the bass is breathtaking, with options to modulate the sound. I do listen to a lot of Podcast and the human voice is very vibrant and clear. Just a few minor observations I made: - the polished black finish adds to the excellent impression but is very dust prone.
Summary: Très bon complément (indispensable à mon avis) à la radio PURE EVOKE Flow; dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de touches dédiées à la présélection de favoris. On est obligé de passer par le menu complet alors que le plus souvent on circule sur quelques radios préférées.
