Pure Evoke Flow Radio Review

The Gadgeteer
4 April 2011
  • Excerpt: This is a difficult review to write. Not because the Evoke is frustrating to use, because it can be or that it’s wonderful because it can be that, also. What makes it hard is that the Pure Evoke Flow Radio does so many things, I having to choose what to write about and what to skim over. The Gadgeteer is not an audiophile site, so I try to keep details short and easy to grasp. So if this review seems to ramble a bit, please forgive me I’m covering a lot of bases here.
  • Pros: Once you use it, it becomes essential, Decent sound, Upgradable software, Thousands of stations available
  • Cons: Clunky '90s display, Steep learning curve, Not as US centric as it could be.

Pure Evoke Flow review

Techworld
20 January 2011
  • Summary: The Evoke Flow has access to plenty of content: Internet radio, terrestrial FM radio and audio streamed from your computer or server, but some people will want more in the form of Pandora and Last.fm and possibly AM radio. And when your world is filled with Apple’s elegant interfaces it’s easy to be put off by devices that you have to occasionally fiddle with to operate.

Playlist Evoke Flow radio

  • Excerpt: (1 items) I’m old enough to have fond memories of portable radios. These weren’t the large-juice-box-sized transistor radios that accompanied kids during the World Series but rather the antenna-bearing thick-hardback-sized radios your parents took to the beach to listen to the scratchy AM rock ‘n’ roll stations of the time. Pure brings me back to those halcyon days with its $230 Evoke Flow Internet radio.
  • Pros: Audio input and output ports, Can stream audio from your computer, Scads of available Internet stations
  • Cons: Mono speaker, Controls can be confusing, No support for commercial streaming services

Gorgeous Tuned Up Clock Radio Also Has an Alarming Price Tag

Wired
17 August 2010
  • Excerpt: One day a boom box made sweet, sweet love to a lunch pail and this designer-sleek internet radio with a fancy OLED display was born of that union. And it’s one bouncing baby of an audio device. First off, it’s beautiful. The four touch-sensitive buttons that adorn its handsome face glow green like props from Tron Legacy ; in fact it’s almost impossible to walk past without tweaking them. It’s also a great entertainer.
  • Pros: Sleek and sexy touch-sensitive buttons and OLED face. Gives you a huge library for your ears, including podcasts, relax-sounds, Wi-Fi and FM stations and access to your iTunes. Better sound quality than most bedside devices.
  • Cons: Wonky interface takes time to master. Only portable with the proprietary ChargePAK E1. Alarm clock a bit too mild for our tastes. Static noise is pronounced when the volume is at max and the radio is on.

Expert Review

  • Summary: The only way to invite German tranceheads, Senegalese guitarists and Chinese opera singers to a knees-up in your kitchen without having a heck of a cleaning bill. Great radio, although not for audiophiles.

PURE EVOKE Flow: the radio that does it all

HEXUS
19 November 2008
  • Conclusion: We've waffled on with a fair amount of EVOKE Flow praise, but we've yet to touch on one of the most important factors - sound. EVOKE Flow feature's PURE's commonly-used full-range 3in driver and provides a power output of 7W RMS. For a single-speaker mono solution, sound quality is surprisingly good. Even when turned up to high volume, audio is clear, well-balanced and although unable to shake the earth in terms of bass, it's plenty ample for its targeted use.
