Digital radio specialists Pure have refreshed their line-up of digital radios this morning, announcing the new Evoke D4 – the 4th generation of what they claim is one of the world’s most iconic digital radios.
The D4 comes in two flavours: with bluetooth, and without. So what’s different?
The new radios both support DAB and FM – with 15 presets for each standard. Both have a 128×22 pixel OLED display to tell you what’s playing, and both come with an infrared remote control.
Similarly both have headphone sockets, and a line-in for plugging in a phone or MP3 player and using the Pure as a speaker.
The D4 with bluetooth though also supports sharing audio via bluetooth – so if you want to wirelessly send audio from your phone or other device, you can do so – and have it come out of the speakers. Great if you want to keep your phone to hand whilst listening to music.
So what’s the cost? The D4 will set you back around £130 and the D4 with bluetooth comes in at £150. Not bad if you’re looking to upgrade that crappy old FM set you have in the kitchen.
