Good: Looks, build quality, sound
Bad: cuts out all the time
Comment: So gutted about this Radio, I bought it to stream internet music but it cuts out constantly, Evoke say its my internet connection, RUBBISH, My internet connection works faultlessly yet its a bit far from the router, so I bought a wifi extender, But I am still having the same problems, I wish Evoke had better customer service, But they just don't care. I will try one more time with them, And if the outcome is positive I will update this post.
Good: looks, build quality
Bad: Sound quality, lack of control. Low volume
Comment: I bought this item for my partners birthday. I wish I had done more searching and I wished she had ignored stupid 10/10 plaudits as awarded on this website and other places desperate to hawk this outdated piece of junk!
Admittedly it is beautifully BUILT, has a wonderful INTERFACE, is LOVELY to LOOK at.
It does all those things very well. But there is one thing which you buy a music player for that it is rubbish with this thing and that is sound reproduction.
If your the sort of person who thinks that a radio stuck inside a card board box broadcasting muffled sounds with no top notes and a wooly bottom, then you should be listening to LW, or MW. Don't waste your money on this, because regardless of its 'features, the sound quality and the total lack of any sort of control are a joke.
Now, I am going to have to buy another and I don't know what to do with this one. I would not even have it in my workshop because I am so tempted to throw it up the garden.
The whole point of digital sound is to supply a crystal clear listening experience, not a retro analogue one. Don't be conned, spend your money elsewhere!
10/10 Your kidding, did you switch it on?
Bad: Still looking......possibly should have had remote control included and battery - then this would have been a perfect purchase.
Comment: Have just bought today. DAB sets up automatically, Wi-Fi little harder, but after a couple of hours and connecting to "Lounge" on web, for radio stations, this little radio is absolutely stunning. Might even purchase additional speaker, but not really needed, as sound quality exceptional. I am a radio amateur, used to complicated menus, will get used to this system within a day or two, and suspect this radio will get much more air time than any other radio in my home - simply brilliant.
Good: Cool looks. It has everything you need from DAB, Internet radio, Media server and Alarm clock.
Bad: Software could be better.
Good: Looks nice
Bad: An internet radio that doesn't connect to the internet. Completely useless.
Comment: My first Evoke Flow would not connect to either of the two wireless networks I tried it on. Pure told me that it was broken and I had to return it to the vendor for a replacement. The second one would also not connect. Many wasted hours for a product that completely failed to work. Positive reviews suggest it is good when it works but be warned.... for this customer buying a Evoke Flow was a very frustrating experience, not helped by unhelpful tech support from the company.
