Bought this to replace another Pure radio (Siesta) that had stopped working. Looks wise the Evoke D2 is a nice radio but functionally a few faults, mentioned by others, that let it down. First, and really irritating, is the display. It's too small to be able to read comfortably from a distance but more importantly is the display light which is way too bright. I've had to turn the display light function off. This leads to a 2nd design fault and that's the on/off button that is set flush with the panel. Therefore with no display light it's a real struggle to find the button to switch it on/off: would have been useful to have had the button set out from the panel. Lastly there's only 4 channel preset buttons, you can access more preset channels but it's a fiddly operation. Certainly on hindsight would not have bought this radio/recommend to others.

If you are looking for a DAB radio for the bedroom or kitchen under £100, I highly recommend this radio. The design is excellent, the controls are neatly laid out and the screen does the job to a decent standard, although the sound is really the most important aspect when looking at purchasing a radio; classical, pop and voice all sound very good on this radio as it has a detailed and warm sound. It is not the loudest of radios but it more than makes up for it with excellent sound quality. Build quality is equally top notch as the unit feels well built and the real-wood enclosure adds a real touch of class. Some previous reviewers have commented that the display was too bright, I can confirm Pure have fixed this with a software update. Classic design, excellent build quality and detailed sound.

If you want this product as a bedside clock radio, you need to know the display of the time is so small and cramped (3mmx8mm) that it is unreadable at night to anyone without perfect eyesight.

Pure have acknowledged that it would be better to display the time as larger characters in the main part of the display, and suggested to me they will make a software upgrade. If this is important to you it might be worth checking that you are buying an upgraded product.

It looks great.
Volume is impressive for something this small
The display is perfect too!
We didn't buy the battery pack as the mains work fine and the radio doesn't move around.

Purchased from local specialist HiFi shop as same price as Amazon and saved waiting in for delivery but identical product. Purchased for bedside radio with ability to plug in MP3 player. Small footprint. Good sound. Easy controls - only three presets accessible by single button press but that's fine for me as there is only three radio stations I regularly listen to.

Two problems - both related to display. Firstly the display is really bright at night - you could almost read a book by it! It needs to be dimmable. Secondly when in standby the time - which is what you want to see - is displayed in tiny characters, and the date - which you seldom want when you wake in the night - is in slightly larger characters below. Would make much more sense to use the whole display area just for the time.

If it wasn't for those two problems it would get five stars.

The product is lovely, the sound and base is amazing for such a small radio, reason it's not gained 5 stars is the volume level is either too Loud or too quiet, the volume increases really fast and could have increased slow for me

There is nothing to complain about this product, I actually bought this after I read all the reviews, to be honest it was a good buy, This is a very good radio, the sound quality, design and built quality all great plus plenty of future. in reference about what the other reviewers mentions about the following (1) clock size (2) sound quality.
The sound quality can be adjusted from bass or treble on audio settings and you can adjust the brightness on the clock for easy time reading from a distance all done on display settings.
A Superb radio for the price I definitely recommend this product

This DAB radio is even better than expected. Simple to program and use with good sound quality. I'm assume there has been a software upgrade since some of the reviews have been written, because you can dim the display that won't keep you awake at night.

Excellent quality for the price. Very clear reception. Standby only instead of an off switch is a bit disappointing. The sound quality is excellent and the product is very solid and well made. If you just want a radio that works and don't need thousands of presets and gadgets, this is for you.

A great radio and so pleased with my purchase. Took a long time choosing this and it really is great. Lots of functions, can play music from phone or MP3 with an aux cable (separate). They do a Bluetooth one too, but couldn't find this same model in wood with blue tooth. Radio has a powerful sound and is not tinny at all and can change the bass and treble. Very happy with this purchase.
