One of the more cost-effective mid-range DAB radios out there, the Pure Evoke H6 nonetheless comes with plenty of great features. On top of DAB functionality, it can also connect to your WiFi to bring a whole world of internet radio into your living room.
Sleek, modern design
The Evoke H6 boasts Pure’s standard DAB radio design, with a wooden body and more modern plastic front plate. Simplicity is the order of the day here, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. For one, it means that the H6 will sit comfortably in virtually any home without looking out of place. In addition, that design philosophy extends to the control setup, which is uncluttered and intuitive. Users should have no problem getting to grips with the H6, as the DAB and internet radio functions are equally easy to use.
Full stereo sound
With twin speakers, the Evoke H6 provides full stereo playback- impressive from such an affordable model. It’s more than loud enough to fill a mid-sized room nicely without any distortion, too. If you like to crank your radio up to 11, the Evoke H6 is more than up to the task. In terms of sound profile, the H6 has a nice warm mid-range and decent separation between tracks. The bass is perhaps a little too heavy for some people’s tastes, but this DAB radio nonetheless performed well in our tests. One nice touch is the variety of preset EQ options to choose from. For instance, if you’re listening to Jazz FM and want the sound to really pop, then just select the “Jazz” EQ option. Simple! If you’d prefer to take more control over things, then you still have the ability to adjust the EQ to your own personal preferences.
Packed with features
The main talking point here is the H6’s internet radio functionality. This is normally only found in more expensive models, so it’s nice to see a more budget-friendly DAB radio including this feature. With more than 30,000 online stations to choose from, you’ll certainly get your money’s worth out of this model! Thanks to the intuitive control method, though, it’s never difficult to find what you’re looking for. If you’d rather choose your own music, then this model also supports aux and Bluetooth connectivity. That means you can easily play whatever you like from your smartphone or table and listen through the H6’s stellar speaker- perfect!
Up to 40 station presets
Like its smaller sibling, the H3, the Evoke H6 has an impressive 40 preset slots available. This can really come in handy with the internet radio function, as it saves you from forgetting any hidden gems that you’ve discovered. Just hold down the preset button, and the radio will automatically save the station you’re listening to for playback later.
