Pure will use the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Show, opening on Friday, as the launchpad for a trio of new DAB radios, including the £170 Evoke-2S shown here.

The Evoke-2S is an evolution of the 2005 Award-winning Evoke-2XT and becomes Pure's flagship stereo DAB/FM radio.

It has a host of audio, cosmetic and functional improvements, including Pure's new Clearsound technology.

Clearsound is an audio sub-system that uses an integrated, high performance switch-mode power supply, Class D amplifiers, digital audio shaping technology and custom-tuned speakers to provide "clear, dynamic audio" and 30W RMS power.

The Evoke-2S includes ReVu to pause and rewind live DAB radio, Intellitext and textScan, improved alarms and sleep timer functions.

It also has an OLED (organic LED display) with manual and automatic brightness controls, an input for an iPod/MP3 player, USB upgradability and real maple veneer casework.

The radio can be run off the mains or taken out and about if fitted with Pure's optional ChargePAK rechargeable battery. There's a mains power switch on the back for those who don't want to leave their radio on standby.

You'll be able to buy the Evoke-2S from November. Pure is also planning to unveil two more new models exclusively at our show: the luxury Evoke Mio portable DAB radio, and the Avanti Flow iPod dock with DAB and internet radio.

We'll bring you exclusive details of both models here on whathifi.com later this week, and you'll be able to see them at the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Show, which opens at ExCel in London on Friday, October 31st and runs until Sunday, November 2nd.

Well Evoke describes the 2S as its "flagship stereo digital radio" in its press release, and it costs £170, whereas the Evoke 3 is now typically available for £140.

I thought the Evoke3 was their top end model?
