January 06, 2014 --
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- CES 2014 -- Pure (South Hall #36254) Today at CES Pure is launching Evoke F4, an internet and FM radio with Bluetooth and the ability to stream a world of multiroom audio entertainment.
Compatible with Pure's award-winning Jongo multiroom music system, Evoke F4 ($229 MAP) enables users to enjoy perfectly synchronized music throughout their home. As with all members of the Jongo family, Evoke F4 can be used on its own or grouped together with other Jongo speakers to deliver the most flexible and accessible multiroom audio system on the market today. Users can simply add extra Jongo speakers or adapters on the same Wi-Fi network to build their multiroom system. Bluetooth is included for casual streaming from mobile devices.
Users can listen to a world of internet radio, or FM and are spoilt for choice with easy access to over 20,000 internet radio stations and 200,000 on demand programs and podcasts from around the world. Music fans can stream millions of music tracks from the Pure Connect subscription service* and those in search of relaxation can unwind to a selection of ambient sounds. When listening to the radio, users can benefit from Evoke F4's innovative tagging technology by pressing the tag button to find out the track and artist name. Tracks can be bought there and then from the radio or at a later date from the Pure Connect website or added to a Pure Connect playlist.
Benefitting from Pure's heritage of British design and engineering and trademark real wood casing, Evoke F4 delivers the best possible sound quality, using highly energy efficient Class-D audio amplification and in-house DSP (digital signal processing) loudspeaker correction, equalisation and sound profiling. Based on the multi award-winning Evoke Flow, the audio has been further refined with significantly increased detail retrieval, focus and resolution.
Leading edge features Include recording live internet to USB memory stick**; instant and timed recordings; touch-sensitive controls; large clear graphical OLED display; multiple alarms; a sleep and kitchen timer; input for an iPod or MP3 player; headphone socket; support for the optional matching stereo speaker ($65 MAP) and rechargeable F1 battery pack ($47 MAP) that gives 12 hours of portable listening per charge.
