Evoke 2S is a refined portable DAB/FM radio with impressive audio, a clear OLED (Organic LED) display and long battery life.
If you haven’t experienced DAB digital radio yet, you’re in for a treat. There’s more station choice, easy station selection, extra information on the display and crisp, clear digital-quality sound.
Our best sounding portable radio yet, Evoke 2S produces 30W RMS from custom tuned mid-range speakers and separate tweeters driven by Pure Clearsound technology. Clearsound is a digital end-to-end audio subsystem using high quality Class D amplifiers and digital audio shaping technology to provide clear dynamic audio, higher volume levels and low power consumption.
Evoke 2S is packed with features designed to enhance your radio listening including bass and treble controls plus pause and rewind of live digital radio for up to 15 minutes. textSCAN allows you to pause and control scrolling text from participating broadcasters – great if you want to catch the title of a track, note down a competition phone number or rewind to catch a news item (subject to station availability). Not forgetting the alarms and sleep timer functions, all the presets you’ll ever need and the latest ChargePAK technology. Its OLED display is crystal-clear from any angle and has both manual and automatic brightness controls. There’s also an input for your iPod/MP3 player, a kitchen countdown timer and a real maple veneer casework.
If you want to go portable with Evoke 2S simply fit the optional E1 ChargePAK, a rechargeable battery pack which fits into the battery compartment of your radio and charges when the radio is connected to the mains so you can take the radio wherever you want. The E1 ChargePAK has the added benefits of being much more economical than regular batteries and significantly kinder to the environment, reducing the quantity of batteries that end up in landfills.

Here's the good bit. Pure's technical person said that I'd need to download something 'onto my PC' from their site which would fix it. I use a Mac. "Sorry, we don't support Macs". "I don't have a PC, so can you sent me a new radio that works?" "No, because we've solved the problem". "Solved the problem? The problem ISN'T solved - the radio still won't turn off - you just want ME to fix it".
Basically, as I understand it at the end of that conversation, any replacement radio that a retailer might have in stock would suffer from the same issue and would need the fix downloading and installing. So I'm deeply unimpressed. Pure have sold a radio that doesn't work properly. Owners are then expected to fix the problem themselves, and they not only have to have a computer to do it, they have to have one type of computer. I don't know about Pure. I'd say that was Poor.
The Evoke arrived sooner than expected and was up and running in minutes. The result? Loved it. It's neat and unobtrusive, sounds great, goes louder than I'd ever need and has a good display. My wife commented on how good it sounded as soon as she heard it and has found it easy to use.
Personally I'd have liked an aerial socket. It works perfectly from the extending aerial but the rod sticking up spoils the look and I'm sure will one day be responsible for removing one of my eyeballs!
Otherwise great. Only time will tell if it's reliable but so far, so good.
Plus points: Good sound quality on both DAB and FM, even given low bit rates on DAB, and it will go very loud. The display is clear and smooth-scrolling. DAB sensitivity is extremely good and this is the only DAB radio I have that doesn't need an external aerial for some of the weaker stations. However, it does need the aerial well extended and under kitchen work units this is not always possible. Fortunately, an external aerial can be used with this radio, unlike the Evoke Flow. Low standby power consumption, an option to vary display brightness in standby, very useful alarm settings (weekdays only, for example).
Minus points: One minor annoyance - the claimed 50 presets require scrolling through a list for anything higher than preset number 6. Other radios just require the + button pressed to step up, so for 6 buttons, 1 would become 7, 2 become 8 etc. With this radio you might just as well scroll through the entire list of available stations as it's scarcely slower than using presets and only involves using one control. It's a big enough box to have some room for a few more preset buttons that would have been far more convenient. Minor gripes - a usb or sd card mp3 player would have been nice at this price point and the stepped volume control makes getting the right very low volume level for late night bedside listening a little awkward.
Overall highly recommended.
After speaking to the help line, I was told that it needed a software update, as this problem was known!!! I really think that a radio of this cost, should not need the customer to have to start updating software in order to get it work, on a unit just over a week old.
It has now been replaced and is all working well, I am pleased that it has been sorted out.
Its just a pity that it was not "right" from the start
I have had an Evoke-XT for a few years and was delighted when I first bought it and it still works perfectly. However, I now bought an Evoke-2S and am less than delighted with it. Apart from minor glitches when being first set up and which are easy to overcome, the signal strength dropped every few seconds resulting in screeching / squeaking sounds interrupting the program. This happens about 5 to 15 minutes each time after switching on and continues for about 1 to 3 minutes, after which the radio functions without any problems. I put the Evoke-2S in the same locations as my old Evoke-XT, which has no signal drops as I live in a strong reception area, but the screeching / squeaking problem continued in the Evoke-2S. I tried re-setting to factory settings and re-tuning a few times but could not overcome this annoying defect.
I then arranged for it to be returned and bought a new Evoke-2S which performs like a 5 star radio. I wish Pure would improve their quality control to avoid wasting customers' time and annoying them to the point that they would be wary of buying any product from what should be a great British company.
