Had one of these for a number of years now and it doesn't suffer from the long term reliability problem of the Evoke 3. I bought the extra stereo speaker and although expensive, the quality is good and I particularly like the fact that I set the sleep timer in 15 minute increments. It doesn't have the touch snooze handle or the ability to record to memory but it is the entry level model. Picks up DAB signals easily which is something my expensive Hi-Fi fails to do… Read Full Review

This has been a family friend for over 7 years. the sound quality is very good and i cant imagine anyone wanting better from a household radio. There is very little distortion so go and grab a bargain you can trust. Of our 4 pure sets in the house on has finally stopped but i diagnosed a faulty transformer and got a new one for 11 quid on the internet. Being external to the radio makes this a simple task. radio fans- BUY ONE… Read Full Review

Pure Evoke 1 is beautiful and easy to use. As a bedside radio the display is easy to read and clock brightness either auto or manually set.
Alarm has weekday,weekend or once only options. Also use as an evening I really love it. It sounds great but a second alarm would be so much better. They should combine the Evoke and Tempus models. Really irritating that they don't include the battery pack. Does not use standard rechargeables. Only one alarm. (The Pure Tempus gives you four but no… Read Full Review

I've just bought this little beauty at CPC.co.uk for a cracking £42! It's for my wife, because her little FM radio she used to have in the kitchen fell to pieces, and the batteries needed changing every so often. Ordered the Pure Evoke 1 online with CPC and I got it the next day, brilliant! Soooo easy to use. Plug it in, it will scan the available stations and off you go. Unfortunately living in Suffolk means the coverage of DAB is rubbish, but that's not Pure's fault. I can only get about 10… Read Full Review

I compared the sound quality of the Pure Evoke-1 DAB digital radio against a whole bunch of others in Curry's, and it was the best by far! The others all seemed tinny, even the more expensive ones.
Setting it up is a doddle. Just switch it on and it scans all the available stations, twiddle through them using a knob not a + or -, and press the presets for 3 seconds to store... easy.
I am very pleased after one months heavy kitchen use… Read Full Review

The Pure Evoke-1 Has been used as a kitchen radio for nearly a year and has performed faultlessly. The sound quality sets the pure evokes apart from the rest and reception and features are also excellent… Read Full Review

Being a busy mum, I seem to spend about 50% of my time doing tedious stuff in the kitchen. I therefore like to listen to talk radio stations as a distraction from peeling spuds and often despaired at the terrible reception my old analogue radio afforded. That is now a thing of the past thanks to this cute little wooden box.
First thing that struck me was the appearance and quality; both are excellent. The wooden finish and retro styling look great, and it feels like a really well made item… Read Full Review

We have two Pure Evoke 1 DAB Digital Radio's. The one downstairs required an external DAB aerial as reception was continually 'muddy' and 'dropping-out'.Reception is perfect now. The one upstairs is perfect with the supplied antenna. The point: Don't expect reception to be faultless just because the word 'Digital' appears and take into account you may have to install an external aerial to get the best results.
I like the design which is very stylish and prefer the Evoke-1 to the Evoke-2 which… Read Full Review

I purchased my Pure Evoke 1 digital radio around eight months ago, and have given this radio a fair test, both in the home (and other peoples homes), and even in the car. I have just recently given the radio to my father. I am distinctly unimpressed by the Evoke, and DAB in the UK. Read on to find why.
When you buy an Evoke, the manufactures (Pure) urge you to return an enclosed warranty card to them with your views of the radio. Clearly many purchasers have done this, judging by the number… Read Full Review

Originally purchased the Roberts Gemini 3 Digital Radio. Took it back to the shop - sound quality poor - far too much bass. The Pure Evoke 1 DAB is cheaper - sounds great and in my area has a far better signal… Read Full Review

First of all I should admit that I'm one of those bores that goes out and researches a product thoroughly before handing over my hard earned $$£££. After umpteen visits to Comet backed up by looking at various reviews seen on the Internet I finally opted for the Pure Evoke-1 DAB Digital Radio.
From the minute I plugged this set in I was really impressed.
It's very easy to set up and get running. You just plug it in and it automatically scans and picks up the stations available - almost 60 in… Read Full Review

I bought this Pure Evoke-1 DAB Digital Radio (with the extra speaker) for my wife last Christmas. I think it is probably her favourite present ever. The sound quality is very impressive and when I link it in to the hi fi system I find myself listening to music which I would normally eschew simply to hear the cd-like sound.
It is a heavy little beast but this simply reinforces the sense of quality. In value for money terms this is a steal !… Read Full Review
