Summary: Despite some of the negative reviews that I've red I have decided to have this radio and so far I have not come to anything bad that was claimed by some of the previous buyers. The radio looks nice, sound nice the only regret I have is that I didn't buy it before. Again I must stress it was the cheapest anywhere advertised on the web and also in the high street stores.
Summary: I bought one originally for my Father and was surprised how good the sound quality was considering all the bad press that DAB has received. Reception in my area is very good and it is easy to use although I won't be using it until they switch off the analogue signal as I am very happy with analogue sound. It is solidly made, not really a portable more of a household radio but not heavy. Clean lines. Timeless styling.
Summary: I bought the Pure Evoke2s to replace a cheap dab radio for the kitchen .I have to say I'm very glad I did after reading both reviews from the hi fi industry and the public forum I knew I was on to.a winner from the superbe build quality to the fantastic sound Pure have produced a radio worthy of audition .The class d amplifiers deliver a rich and full bodied sound also having the separate bass and treble controls and the 2way speakers means you can taylor the sound to...
Summary: Using the radio for 4 years now, no problems - good sound easy operation, until.... The radio stopped working and the digital display stated an USB Update Rev B was required. Went to the Pure Help Site, there was a Download to upgrade the radio, I thought..Fantastic, but wait it would only work with a Wndows computer with a 32 bit processor???? My computer operates windows 7 with a 64 bit processor.
Summary: I use this in the bedroom. The sound is very good, and the alarm gets me up in the morning. Both speech and music are weighty and more than powerful enough to fill the room with sound. I looked at some more expensive alternatives from other manufacturers, and I couldn't really justify the extra cost. This is my second PURE DAB, my first was the Evoke-2, which also sounds excellent.
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 have just purchased a Pure Evoke 2S from the 'Hereforaday' site at an 'offer' price of £89.99 stating nothing else than an 'RRP of £149.99'. Following delivery I discovered there were no English instructions or original packaging and on further inspection it was obviously not a new radio. When I contacted Hereforaday they confirmed it was in fact a 'refurbished' radio and this was 'clearly mentioned in the advertisement'.
Summary: I have owned 2 Pure DAB radios and both have broken down after approx. 18 months , Whilst working sound quality was good , I had some tuning issues due to locality ( I don't blame the radio for that ) but functionality was fine otherwise. The radios both simply stopped working with no warning , the screens were backlit but no tuning ability , sound, or other sign of life.
