Pure Digital Evoke Flow internet radio

Pure entertainment pleasure

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Review After two years in development, Pure Digital has created what it hopes will become internet radio’s first genuinely iconic product.

Our first reaction was that this is a really attractive little radio. The company has kept the familiar Evoke casing, but coated the device in a gloss piano-black finish with stylish and solid-feeling metal controls and speaker grille.

Pure Digital's Evoke Flow: internet radio’s first genuinely iconic product?

There are touch-sensitive buttons on the front that are used for a number of different functions, and we found these to be easy to use and reliable. That's not the case for many touch-sensitive interfaces, often on much more expensive products.

The Evoke Flow combines DAB, FM and Wi-Fi-received internet streams and has the aim of delivering the best of what's available on all three platforms. Pure believes that just giving access to the thousands of internet stations that are out there isn't quite the point.

So it's created a dedicated portal called the Lounge, bringing the listener many ways to tailor the internet radio to suite personal tastes. There's no need trawl through hundreds of options to find something worth listening to - the search power of the Lounge can be applied to sort, arrange and create a bespoke listening experience. The site isn't available to the public as yet, but Register Hardware was given special access to try the service out.
