Pure Digital Launches EVOKE-3

The World’s Most Advanced Radio

London, UK 22nd September 2005: PURE Digital — a division of Imagination Technologies (LSE:IMG) — presents the PURE EVOKE-3, the most advanced radio yet from the world leader in DAB digital radio.

EVOKE-3 enables a wealth of enhanced usability features. It brings together the best features of PURE’s DAB digital radio range, including ReVu, SD-card support, MP3 playback, tri-band reception, USB upgradeability, SnoozeHandle and Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). EVOKE-3’s advanced features are accompanied by elegant, iconic styling and industry-leading sound quality.

EVOKE-3 will be on sale from November 2005 for £199.99 inc. VAT.

With PURE’s ReVu technology EVOKE-3 listeners can pause and rewind live DAB digital radio1 using the convenient ‘ReVu dial’ and record multiple tracks or complete radio programs to SD-card2. Timer record means EVOKE-3 listeners need never miss a programme just because they’re out. Timer recording of specific programmes can be enabled in EPG by a single press of the ‘Record’ key when on the highlighted program. Users can then listen to programmes they’ve recorded later on the EVOKE-3 itself, or when they are out and about using a compatible device such as the PURE PocketDAB 2000. MP3 collections can be played back from SD-card, with full support for subfolders.

EVOKE-3’s large, graphical LCD display can accommodate six lines of DLS showing news, sports results, song titles and more, plus text and icons showing station name and date/time. The clock automatically adjusts for summer/winter time. The large display brings EVOKE-3’s simple and intuitive menu system to life, enabling easy access to the radios power and functionality. All functions can also be accessed with the convenient full function remote control.
Says Kevin Dale, GM, PURE Digital: “EVOKE-3 has absolutely everything users require to get the best out of the ever-increasing range of content now available on the radio. With great sound and flexibility EVOKE-3 enables a host of delightful, powerful features that lift radio listening to new heights.”

Sound quality is ensured with integrated full range hi-fi speakers and a bass reflex port for enhanced bass performance. Audio quality has been enhanced with custom designed drive units and active-filters to provide a natural ‘direct-from-the-studio’ sound. Furthermore, a dedicated DSP audio processor allows users to adjust the sound to their own preferences.

EVOKE-3 is compatible with EPG broadcasts which enable users to browse the programmes on a single station or all programmes at a particular time, see a short description of each programme, and select them for scheduled listening or recording to SD memory card.

EVOKE-3 is ‘USB Upgradeable’ over an Internet connection (PC required). Whether it’s enhancements to the DAB standard or new features from PURE, the USB connector enables users to keep their EVOKE-3 up to date. Users can also transfer recordings and MP3 files between a PC and EVOKE-3 over the USB connection.

EVOKE-3 incorporates SnoozeHandle technology. A simple touch of the handle will snooze the alarm, for a user defined length of time. For those late night time-checks touching the SnoozeHandle will light up a full-screen clock. The clear display offers selectable brightness settings and an automatically updated clock, which means owners will never again miss the British Summer Time clock movement. A sleep button on the remote control makes the radio go off automatically after a selectable period of time.

Other key EVOKE-3 features include: line input (for iPod, CD, MiniDisc or MP3 device); kitchen countdown timer; multiple alarms; an easy to read graphical display with adjustable brightness; class-leading FM performance with RDS; and radius-edged casework in a Sequoia veneer finish.

As well as taking ordinary ‘C’ cell alkaline batteries, EVOKE-3 is ChargePAK Ready. The ChargePAK C6 (bought separately; SSP £29.99) recharges in-unit to provide convenient DAB portability. The radio also features an ultra low-power standby mode.

EVOKE-3 has easy-to-use DAB features such as station selection by name and text showing song titles, artist information, news updates and sports results.

EVOKE-3 also features six one touch station presets, with up to 99 presets accessible from the remote control or on-screen menu. Connections include headphone output, stereo line-out and digital optical line-out for recording or connection to a digital speaker system.

Volume Equalisation Technology (VET) means that the EVOKE-3 constantly monitors the audio levels of every station and subtly adjusts their relative volume levels over time. So once users have found the volume setting they like, they can switch between stations without changing the volume.

The SD memory card slot accepts cards up to at least 1GB (for over 15 hours of radio recording).

EVOKE-3 also features a high sensitivity RF tuner module; selectable levels of Dynamic Range Control; user-selectable service ordering; and a telescopic aerial/connector for external aerial.

The product is covered by a 2-year warranty. See www.puredigital.com for stockists or call 01923 277 488.
