Excerpt: DAB specialist Pure has given its popular Evoke Mio radio a makeover, and while rival brand Roberts Radio has previously collaborated with design guru Cath Kidston, Pure has teamed up with world-renowned designer Orla Kiely . Featuring the design expert's trademark stem print, the radio looks pretty as a picture and is sure to be a big seller in the run-up to Christmas, but is it any good? We put it through its paces to find out...
Pros: Elegant design, sturdy build, good audio, easy to use
Excerpt: This stylish new offering from Pure is based on the form and function of the successful Evoke-1S. But it's a far more elaborate design, with its combination of coloured leather – in five optional colours – and cream suede. The five colours are: red, pink (above), green, brown and black.
Pros: Great styling, punchy sound, clean, well detailed midrange
Cons: There are better sonic performers at this price
Excerpt: The latest eye-catching number from Pure is the Pure Evoke Mio portable digital radio . It's the Pure Evoke-1S digital radio, but with a new outfit that comes in a variety of colours with a suede and leather finish.
Summary: If you want a sturdy, no-nonsense machine for tuning to DAB and FM radio, plenty of empty presets and a design you'll be proud to show off, the PURE Digital Evoke Mio is probably what you're after. Its performance is spot-on, it's easy to use and its chunky case could probably take a few knocks if you plan on carting it about the house
Pros: Great design, Highly readable OLED display, Pitch-perfect output
PURE Digital Evoke Mio: retro, klein, klanggewaltig
18 December 2009
Summary: Radio hören viele nur noch im Auto. Schuld daran ist unter anderem die als schlecht verschriene Qualität des Sounds aus dem Äther. Doch das muss nicht sein: Das Evoke Mio von PURE Digital empfängt digitales Radio und bietet einen erstklassigen Klang. Wir haben getestet, was der kleine Retro-Kasten sonst noch drauf hat.
Pros: schickes Design, gut lesbares OLED-Display, perfekt abgestimmter Ausgang
