Pure Evoke-1S Luxury Portable DAB/FM Radio
Advantages: Relatively inexpensive, unobtrustive design, highly reliable
Disadvantages: Lacks the functionality of some more expensive models
Half the power consumption of industry equivalents, a fairly basic radio allowing you to pre-set six channels and access the others via a tuning knob. Can occasionally have problems picking up the signals of some channels on the first attempt, but usually gets there in the end. Sound quality is exceptionally good whether listening to spoken word, pop or classical music. FM stations available in addition to the DAB Digital interface.
Attractive enough 'box' style radio with light wooden veneers and curved silver 'handle'. Simple interface with traditional tuning and volume knobs and 11 oval buttons for more specific features. Telescopic aerial in silver.
Upgrading from the previous model, a light sensor picks up on the ambient light in your room and adjusts the LED setting accordingly.
The 2 Year Manufacturers Warranty is more than offered by most electrical manufacturers and probably reflects the quality of the product. We've never had an issue with this (after 3+ years) or our other 'Pure' products, but its nice to have this as back-up.
While a relatively basic model new features (e.g. stereo speakers) can be purchased and added via a USB port. IPods can also be plugged in. Admittedly having lots of trailing wires may make the product a bit cumbersome.
Summary: Good all-rounder for everyday use
