Summary: It seems well made, OK but expensive for what it is, Pure are trading on their name and these radio's could be sold much cheaper. The battery especially (which has to be purchased seperately) is very over-priced, hence I haven't bought one.
Summary: This radio stopped working on mains power some months ago (it works on the battery but I cant charge it!). Since then I have tried to get information and spares from Pure without sucess. Their tech help refers me to the spares page which doesnt include the mains switching unit! I would not buy Pure again.
Excerpt: My introduction to the product Call me old fashioned, but I like to have wireless in the kitchen. I know that MP3 players, CD players and televisions that play music are a feature in most houses and in most rooms there is some form of music player. However, in the kitchen I like the radio and I find it relaxing. I spend a lot of my working time in the gym listening to lots of music and sometimes it is refreshing to listen to a radio channel that does not do music.
Summary: I bought this radio for my mum about 3 years ago. It has recently started to turn itself off for variable periods. Pure have been very unhelpful which as a strategy is very short sighted when they are trying to sell a high end product. The radio looks great but it was a replacement for a Russian one my dad picked up on his travels over 35 years ago which was still working fine when we replaced it.
Summary: The Evoke-2S is a 5 star radio provided that you are not one of the unlucky ones who has received a defective one. The chances of you receiving a defective one are relatively high judging from the large number of complaints on the internet and my own experience. I have had an Evoke-XT for a few years and was delighted when I first bought it and it still works perfectly. However, I now bought an Evoke-2S and am less than delighted with it.
Summary: I bought this radio for Mother's day a couple of years ago: I got an email from my mother telling me it had suddenly stopped working. Upon researching this problem online, I found out this has happened to many people and the company that makes them has been very unhelpful. Positive reviews are from customers that have not had the radio for long, but after 2 years you have to be ready to fork out for a new one...
Summary: I have two of these radios and everything is fine except for one thing. The 'stereo out' (line-out to play through a separate pair of speakers) doesn't work. It failed on both of my radios after a week, and I had them replaced. Now, nine months later the same thing has happened. I hadn't touched the line-out lead since I got the replacement radios, and today I had to remove the lead. When I put it back there was no sound.
