Pure's award-winning Evoke family just keeps on getting better. Evoke D4 is the latest version of this iconic portable DAB digital and FM radio, featuring real walnut or oak veneer casing and contemporary styling.
Evoke D4's stylish good looks aren't just for show - the wood casing, tuned speaker and latest digital amplifier ensure class-leading audio, so it sounds beautiful too.

DAB digital radio brings you high-detail, digital-quality sound, lots of stations (many exclusive to digital) and scrolling text displaying track titles, programme info and more. Digital radios automatically find all your available stations and let you select them by name, and there's also FM for any stations that have not yet gone digital.

Now even easier to use, Evoke D4 includes a convenient remote control and the touch sensitive Snoozehandle makes it truly simple to snooze your alarm. There's also 30 presets (with four quick access buttons), kitchen and sleep timers, tone or radio alarm, stereo headphone socket and aux-in for your iPod or MP3 player. Evoke D4 also takes an optional Pure ChargePAK F1 rechargeable battery pack for portable listening.

Good price, have some heat! Not for me though personally in that colour! Would like a maple one!

With apps like Tune In radio for free, or even about £1 for premium version, I don't know why anyone would buy a DAB anymore...

Good deal, appreciated OP

Well, I had to ask my son what your comment actually means so....

I like having a DAB radio in my kitchen and one in my bedroom. I also occasionally listen in the living room via my cable tv channels. I like using my phone as a phone and for texting and email alerts. Perhaps it's more of a "thing" for older people, but I do like the great rich quality sound from my Pure Evoke radio. Also I don't have to plug my radio into speakers any time I want to listen to it "out loud". So I can think of several reasons.

p.s. I do have a phone capable of having the app (iphone 5), which my son has told me he has too.

Well said, fully agree.

Fine, but why on earth did Pure drop the Evoke 3 (the only radio on the market with a decent built-in EPG) without replacement?

In decent condition these things can fetch more than the original new price on eBay!

Excellent price but this is not the Bluetooth model

I am actually so surprised that even nowadays I still see these radios become so hot. Can someone advise me why you still use radio, please? If it is of good use, I will buy one as well

If you have to ask such a simple question will you really be able to understand the answer!

Can't believe why people are questioning why people have radios?!?!

I have all the gadgets and gizmos in the world, but still like to have a normal DAB radio to play in the background all day (and night) long. We have one on almost all the time in the kitchen etc. I wouldn't want to have to be faffing with any apps or other devices. I just like to turn something on and off, and have proper sound quality at the same time.

And the fact that you don't NEED a £100 - £600 phone / tablet / TV just to listen to music.

Big up radio!

I cannot get Wifi in the car so have a DAB radio in there. I cannot get wifi in campsites so we take the Pure Evoke 2S with portable battery with us.

Even if we could get the portability of wifi, unless you have a decent speaker dock via bluetooth the sound from many a tablet and mobile phone is plain cack and tablets/mobile phone battery juice woeful.

Buy a radio and chances are it'll still be working in 20 years time, too.
And where's your computer, smartphone or tablet then, huh ? In the landfill or melted down for scrap.

Not the only one, the fabulous Pure Bug/Bug too also had a great epg with an sd card slot.

Too right, my Pure Bug bought way back as a refurb in around 2006 (and released around 2004) when Morgan Computers was still trading stores...it is still going as strong as ever 9 years later.

I have had an Evoke 3 since it first came out and apart from a minor glitch with a firmware update I have had no problems with it at all - it still has its original ChargePak battery. However, I have had two Pure Moves which crackled and were almost impossible to listen to. I had three Pure Evoke Flows which had one problem after another which usually resulted in the screen just going blank. And, most recently, I have had nine Pure Sensia 200Ds which had endless problems too and forever needed the battery taking out and rebooting. To be fair to Pure, they did replace them without question but I would never buy another Pure radio as they have nearly driven me insane and forever packing them up, unpacking, setting them up and staying in for deliveries/exchanges was too time consuming.

The Bug was OK, but it didn't have the EPG/record facilities of the Evoke 3 - there isn't (and wasn't) another radio to touch it for recording multi-programmes + series record. Which is why they still fetch so much money on eBay.

This is a gorgeous looking radio.

I'd love a similar looking radio but one with an SD card slot - does it exist?

The LCD display on the Evoke 3 most certainly is in a different league than The Bug was, and is far more intuitive and useful to use. I was not comparing though, just commenting that the Evoke 3 is not the only radio on the market with a decent EPG, whilst The Bug lacks features it is overlooked as the first DAB radio to offer EPG (with a firmware upgrade from stock)

I own the D4 Mio (which is basically the same) and its a really nice radio.

Another +1 for the Bug here. Still using mine to record the R4 comedy slots every day which I then listen to along with various podcasts on my MP3 player.

Cheers op....got the D2 on Amazon deal end of last year for the study, now this one for downstairs. Can make calls on moby and still have radio on in the background, not sure I can do that with just a moby...but then I'm a Luddite lol. Also more reliable signal than Virgin wifi so this is one will probably get more use than my old internet radio.

Great brand, still have 2 Pure Dabs in the house going strong since 2004, one with built in Chargepak. Looking back at the cost over 10 years means this is a brand I will come back to once these finally give up.

For this price, you could easily get a stereo DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity.

For a mono radio with no BT this is pretty bad.

Yes, I have 3 of the Pure bugs the sd slot is very handy, EPG is a necessity imho for programme planning, & three Pure sonus ..& the cruddy Harris is relegated to the garage.

Decent sound, decent support, decent signal capability, decent enclosures, unlike a docking station speaker combo which as mentioned chances are will break in a few years, made from naff material (poor sound overall) phone / ipod etc adaptors change then are a devil to find thereafter, not reliant on wi-fi which may get interuppted dependent upon location, signal, drop out, or who has nicked material from the local exchange etc.

Eighty quid now.

You really should go back to a standard FM radio. You are jinxed.

We have an Evoke, and the sound is fantastic. We bought the extra speaker for ours (at great expense) but well worth it

Except my Evoke 3 has been going for almost a decade and I also have an iBlik and a crappy unbranded belt DAB radio which work perfectly.

I spent a lot of time trying to sort out the Evoke Flow and Sensia 200D problems and discovered that I was very far from alone. I think that Pure have overreached themselves by adding too much functionality in their newer products which actually causes the core functionality to suffer; i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Weather Channel etc.
