Summary: 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-effect finish.
Conclusion: Overall the Evoke Mio is a beautiful object adorned with a beautiful choice of designs, but it’s not quite rugged enough for something you’d expect to take on a picnic or sling in the kitchen. Forego the battery pack, and give it a safe shelf in the living room, however, and you’ll have a decorative hint of 1960s style, plus a damned good radio to enjoy.
Excerpt: Apparently, there are a few "events" happening in the UK this summer. Well, we wish somebody had told us - we's planned a big Pocket-lint barbecue and now Prince Charles and Rebecca Adlington have cried off because they've got "something more important on". What could be more important than munching on one of Hunter Skipworth's famed pork and popping candy sausages, we ask you?
Excerpt: Following the success of DAB specialist Pure's first collaboration with renowned designer Orla Kiely, the maker has introduced a further update of the Evoke Mio radio featuring a new print, and we were invited along to the designer's flagship store in central London for a sneak preview.
Excerpt: The highly regarded Pure Evoke Mio radio has just hit town once again, this time with your kitchen in mind. The DAB specialist has introduced five colour choices pretty much guaranteed to suit every home between them. Each is finished in a leatherette material and all are actually very pretty indeed. To give them their proper names the colours are teal, lava, grape, cherry and noir, but to you and us that's blue, orange, purple, red and black.
Conclusion: With its chic designer finish, Pure's latest radio might look a bit too girly for some, but that doesn't stop if from being a great product. Along with the classy looks, we were impressed with the sound quality as well as how easy it it to use. Just make sure you check the DAB coverage in your area before parting with any cash. The Pure Evoke Mio by Orla Kiely will be on sale exclusively at John Lewis from early November and at independent retailers from March 2011.
Pros: Elegant design, sturdy build, good audio, easy to use

Summary: Radio hören viele nur noch im Auto. Schuld daran ist unter anderem die als schlecht verschriene Qualität des Sounds aus dem Äther.

Pros: schickes Design, gut lesbares OLED-Display, perfekt abgestimmter Ausgang
