Excerpt: The downside to this system is the ease of initial programming, which I do not feel is particularly easy to do when compared to my own digital radio . The radio also did not come with a manual, which had to be downloaded online. This is great for the environment, but still a bit of an inconvenience! But overall this is an excellent product and I would recommend it to any radio enthusiast looking to spend a little more money on a top quality product.
Summary: This is a beautiful, simple piece of kit that will make the transition to DAB and internet radio a joy. The evoke flow can play digital radio, FM and link wirelessly to internet radio stations and 'Listen Again'. In addition you can link wirelessly to your computer and access all the music you have stored from anywhere in the house. Amazingly all this is done with just a few clicks of the touch-sensitive buttons and the chunky retro dials.
Summary: We recently purchased a Pure Evoke internet radio for our daughter who now lives in south eastern France and enjoys listening to the BBC via the internet. On our visits we had noticed that the laptop she was using to listen through regularly, and very irritatingly, dropped the connection, and placing it in the optimum position made the computer vulnerable to our highly inquisitive granddaughter.
Summary: I have set up a couple of these radios for friends in Cyprus and it struck me just how good they are for us expats lacking quality English radio, so ordered one for myself. Having downloaded the manual these are very easy to set up although it took a while to learn the intricacies of 'The Lounge'. I was so delighted that I ordered a second from Amazon to use as a bedside radio. Very happy.
Summary: I was given this radio as a birthday present recently (so apologies but I don't know how much it cost) and have been extremely happy with it. The sound quality is great and the functionality blew me away. Firstly the look: This radio is very sleek with a large digital screen and two dials. There are also 4 'touch screen' buttons, which add to the modern look - definitely not the radio for you if you're looking for a retro design.
Summary: There are many negative reviews about this product out there but having used this radio for the last 4 months in both the UK and South West France I can only give it 10 out of 10. Yes the menu navigation is a bit cumbersome (you MUST get a remote control) but it does everything I wanted it to & more. Connecting to my wifi network was simple and despite living in a converted stone barn I've had no problem with signal strength etc.
