Evoke 2S is a refined portable digital and FM radio with impressive, award winning audio, an input for your iPod/MP3 player, clear OLED display and long battery life.
Our best sounding portable radio, Evoke 2S produces 30W RMS from custom tuned mid-range speakers and separate tweeters and uses 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.
If you’re new to DAB digital radio you’ll love the high-detail, digital-quality sound, lots of stations (many exclusive to digital) and scrolling text displaying track titles, programme info and more. Digital radios automatically find all your available stations and let you select them by name, and like all our DAB digital radios, Evoke 2S includes FM for any stations that have not yet gone digital.
Packed with features, Evoke 2S includes pause and rewind of live digital radio, alarms and sleep timer functions, all the presets you’ll ever need, and takes an optional ChargePAK rechargeable battery pack for portable listening.

The Evoke-2S isn't just PURE's best-sounding radio to date; it's the company's best product, full stop.Gramaphone - May '09
Fortunately the Evoke-2S sounds fantastic. The thing that really stands the 2S apart from other DAB radios is the bass delivery
The results are sublime. This is possibly the best sounding standalone radio we've encountered, and substantiates the claims on the box of "immense volume" and "clear dynamic audio". We love it.
You certainly get a lot of radio for your money and once you've tried it, it's difficult to consider going back to a lesser, or even, heaven forfend, mono model
Within the limits of what's available with DAB, this is the best-sounding table top radio we've yet heard..
If a quality approach to radio functionality and playback is what you seek, check out this sure-footed flagship model from Pure.
There is not much that the Evoke-2S that doesn't do well. If you're serious about quality in your radio, then it's well worth a look. The audio quality really does surprise, and the unit also has enough functionality in its locker to deliver more than just good sound.
We'd say this is an excellent radio for speech, very good for music...
When you consider its impressive features, stunning display and ease of use, the Evoke-2S really does sit at the top of the pile when it comes to DAB/FM portables.Hi-Fi Choice - March '09 Best Buy Award
