Pure EVOKE-2S digital radio
This digital radio has great speakers and a good design
- Amazing sound quality, sturdy build, packed full of features
- Large and heavy
The Pure EVOKE-2S comes with a hefty price tag but it delivers great sound quality.
Price$ 499.00 (AUD)
The Pure EVOKE-2S is an eco-friendly digital radio that receives both digital audio broadcasts (DAB) and FM signals. It's marketed at people who want a digital radio for the kitchen, but you can use this model pretty much anywhere around the house. Pure has produced yet another great digital radio, but it carries a hefty price tag ($699).
The sound quality of the Pure EVOKE-2S is superb. It features a power-efficient Class D amplifier, and it produces clear sound and has a high maximum volume. Built into the unit is a pair of tuned speakers, each with a 15 Watt output rating. Each speaker consists of a dome tweeter and a 3in mid-range driver, and distortion is almost nonexistent when you crank the volume up.
The EVOKE-2S has an OLED display with great viewing angles. You can adjust the display's brightness level and also choose from a variety of styles; one simply has the time on it while others can have radio station names displayed as well as the current song that's playing.
An input for an MP3 player, a headphone jack and an audio out port are located on the back of the radio. A kitchen countdown timer is a nifty little bonus, and this digital radio is also equipped with a programmable alarm clock. You can update the radio's firmware via a USB port; this will be handy if Pure decides to update the interface of the radio, for example.
Like the Pure ONE Classic, the EVOKE-2S has a time-shift feature allowing you to ‘record’ radio for up to 15 minutes. This lets you stop a live broadcast and 'rewind' it (it won't let you save the audio).
The EVOKE-2S offers an impressive 100 presets (the OXX Classic DAB+ only has four).
There are a few drawbacks to the EVOKE-2S: at 2.7kg it's fairly hefty compared to other radios; the menu can be a tad hard to navigate at first (you get used to it); and a battery pack is an optional extra. Considering the price of the radio, we would have liked the battery pack to be included.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
