The EVOKE-1XT won the Best Portable Radio award in the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision awards 2004. The What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision awards 2004 issue is on sale from today.

The EVOKE-1XT Prestige Edition also features: an easy to read white on blue display with adjustable brightness; a countdown timer (invaluable in the kitchen); a radio and tone alarm; and a USB connector for product updates.

Said Kevin Dale, president, PURE Digital: "The original EVOKE-1 has revolutionized radio and quickly became a design classic, outselling every other radio in the UK over the past two years. The EVOKE-1XT Prestige Edition is an exceptional new version of this classic DAB radio with an exclusive walnut veneer, even better sound and great new features. We are delighted to be working with John Lewis Partnerships to create this highly desirable DAB radio."

The mains powered EVOKE-1XT Prestige Edition features six station presets, a high performance speaker, a headphone socket and stereo line-out for recording. The cabinet is bass ported for a richer more natural sound.
