Good: Sound quality, reliability
Bad: Only 6 presets, ChargePak not included
Comment: I have been using the Pure Evoke 2XT since December 2006, and I cannot praise it highly enough. The sound is excellent from such a small unit (can be heard well in the garden too), and the receiver does its best with some of the lower bit rate stations, making them sound as good as it can. Optical Out, Line Out and Line In mean that the unit is flexible too, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a DAB radio.
Good: Good sound quality, option to connect to iPod and the sleeper function
Bad: Size and look, price, few presets and Q radio station not available!
Comment: I recently bought this radio for a whopping £120, which was a bit expensive given that it is a digital/FM radio only.
But true to the review, the sound quality is great - and great for the bedroom (I've yet to use it in the kitchen, and frankly don't think I will). Haven't bothered using the FM radio as yet, as long as there's Magic on digital.... :P
I'm not entirely convinced by the size of the thing, it looks and feels a little bulky to me. The ability to play your songs from an iPod (or iTunes on your laptop) is great - the bad thing is, you'll need to buy another cable for this, so add another £10 (but worth it I think).
Overall, pretty good indeed.
