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.
Summary: great dab radio for planet rock sounds great, but i bought the chargepak so it was portable but lasted about 6 months and started cutting out if you turned volume up 3/4 of the way, so contacted pure who sent another battery free of charge but that only lasted about 2 months and started cutting out again, also alarm/radio on at a set time will not work on battery it has to be plugged in??? so dont rely on waking you if power not on.
Summary: Let's face it. The only reason to buy DAB is for Planet Rock. In spite of all the hype, DAB is no better than FM because they've saturated the bandwidth with loads of crappy teenie stations. However, it's a real shame that the Pure Marshall has no ReVu pause-record or remote control... for those tracks you really wanna crank up again and again while the radio blasts in the distance. DAB+ capability is excluded from the firmware if the unit is bought in the U.K.
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.
Summary: I brought the radio to replace the similar model brought 5 years ago., thinking that it would have all the same facilities. It did not. The natural sounds which I used every day. The rain to lull me to sleep and the birdsong as the alarm. are missing. Therefore the radio does not meet with my requirements, but it is a good radio .
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).
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...
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.
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.
