  • Summary: This is a good little dab/fm radio, ideal for bedroom, don`t expect hi-fi sound but it is reasonable. I have connected it to a Creative Audio subwoofer and speakers and it now sounds excellent.
  • Pros: Design and looks
  • Cons: Sound is ok, but limited by size of unit

PURE Evoke-1S

Peter, Amazon

  • Summary: . PURE EVOKE-1S, Luxury Portable DAB/FM Radio - Maple Ordering, packaging and delivery was straight forward and successful. Setting and understanding the instructions took a little while. In operation, I use the radio as a bedside clock /radio, I find the automatic sleep setting fiddly. The need to set the sleep (switch off) device on each occasion is a step backward. Even my old (30+ year) radio would switch off after an hour.

Good if expensive

  • Summary: This radio isn't cheap, but is of a high quality. Reception is excellent for me, with no need to extend the antenna at all. The (fake) wood styling is pleasing on the eye, although the front panel seems a little cluttered. The buttons are all well laid out, though, and it is good to have a number of preset buttons (which many DAB radios seem not to have).

EVOKE 1S

  • Excerpt: Do I mean `Snooze facility`? I want to fall asleep at night listening to the radio and have it turn itself off after about an hour when Im safely in the land of Nod. Not much to ask - many cheaper radios have this facility, but not the Evoke-1S. How stupid is that? The sound quality is not great, even on DAB, and there is no Tone control on this model to sharpen up the sound so it sounds quite fluffy.

  • Excerpt: I have been using this model now for seven months,and apart from only getting about fifteen channels, when I thought I would get dozens as its digital I am still quite pleased with it.But what really made me sit down and write this review is that I had to send it back today as it started playing up which does happen, (but you do get a two year warranty).Unfortunately you have to send it back to pure at your expense which is not cheap as you need to insure it as well for...

Good but not long lasting

M. Fielding "MK Mike", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had a couple of Pure DAB products now. One lasted 3 years and one lasted 5. I don't know if I'm expecting too much. Both failed in similar ways. They have power, stuff happens, but no display and no radio. I shall not buy PURE again but maybe I've got high expectations.

Super Konzept, leider mit Mängeln

Kruxer , Conrad

  • Summary: Der Evoke S2 hat ein ausgewogenes Design und ist äußerlich solide verarbeitet. Die Bedienung ist kinderleicht und wenn man das Prinzip mal begriffen hat, kann man die Bedienungsanleitung vergessen. Besonders schön ist der unmittelbare Zugriff auf alle wichtigen Funktionen. Das Display ist zwar nicht groß, aber gestochen scharf und hervorragend ablesbar. Die gebotenen Informationen sind umfassend.
  • Pros: design, bedienung, display
  • Cons: mangelhafter fm empfang, unsaubere baßwiedergabe, keine antennenbuchse, spezialakku
