UK radio specialist Pure have today unveiled its latest model, the Evoke F4 internet radio.
While its exterior looks like a retro radio, its interior has nothing retro about it. This cheeky little box offers radio via WiFi from DAB, internet and normal FM sources and can also be used along side Pure’s very own Jongo system.It also includes Bluetooth and a “Tag” button which can automatically pull up track information on a song playing on the radio.
Pure are really considering those trying to build a multi-room system by allowing you to construct the system slowly without the need of buying a costly whole system package. This unit will work as a standalone digital radio or as part of the Jongo set up which includes speakers like its Sonos competition.
The Evoke F4 is constructed with a real wood case and has an OLED screen to show all station information and weighs in just under 1.5kg giving it a nice retro well made feel.
The F4 allows you to record internet and DAB radio direct to a USB flash drive to listen to later and of course gives you access to all on-demand podcasts and programs.
The Pure Evoke F4 has one 7W 3.5″ speaker and has an optional battery pack that will keep you going for a continuous 12 hours wireless use. The F4 goes on sale today for £179.99 with optional Pure music subscriptions starting at £4.99 a month.
