The Evoke-1 has so far been the UK's best-selling digital radio, and this XT version is Pure's answer to those who criticised the original's sound quality. It's still blessed with a simple interface, classy looks and superb reception - in fact, if anything, the reception's better than ever. The improved display is also a joy to look.
But does this radio sound any sweeter? Well, yes it does, but only by a tad. It's still mono, which doesn't help, and while the tone's warm, it sounds a bit too 'thick' - all mid-range and not much else. Listeners to 1Xtra won't appreciate the lack of bass and Classic FM lovers will be after more delicacy, but this is still a good buy.
