Pure announces the new, greener, Evoke 2SNew model claims better sound quality too
30 October 2008
Pure has announced a new addition to its family of Evoke digital radios: the Evoke-2S.
It claims it has improved sound quality compared to its predecessor the Evoke-2XT, and greater green credentials.
Mid-range and high frequency speakers have been improved to achieve ‘clear dynamic audio’ with low power consumption, according to the manufacturers.
A hard power off switch at the back of the radio has also been fitted so that it won’t use any power when not in use.
The Evoke-2S receives both DAB and FM radio, has a kitchen timer, and OLED (Organic LED) display. It operates on mains power as well as using an optional ChargePAK rechargeable battery.
It also features a USB socket to enable upgrades, and could be upgraded to receive DAB+. For more information about DAB+ see our digital radios report.
Which? digital radio expert Lizzy Payne said: 'We’re looking forward to testing this model as top of the range products from Pure have scored well in our previous tests. It will be particularly interesting to see if the power consumption lives up to the claims.'
Which? has tested more than 60 digital radios including 15 models from Pure. Find out how well they did in our extensive tests in our digital radio reviews.
The Pure Evoke 2S will cost £170 and will be in stores in November, just in time for Christmas.
