This mid-sized tabletop radio from Logik is mimicking radios in Pure’s Evoke series.

 

Features and Performance

The radio has twin speakers and offers DAB and FM reception. It can run via the built-in mains adapter, or 4 AA batteries. The wooden casing feels well made, however the plastic used for the front fascia looks cheap. The small control buttons are rather fiddly to use. The main rotary knob controls both volume and tuning. Above this sits the 3 line LCD display, which features a large clock display on its top line. Backlit in orange, the display is easy to read, but scrolling text does suffer from a ghosting effect. On the back of the radio there is an earphone socket, but no line in or out connections, so connecting an MP3 player is out of the question. There are 2 basic alarms, with no extra functions such as daily settings and weekend cancel. Reception performance is disappointing. FM sensitivity is poor and DAB is at best average. Sound quality is not that impressive, crisp enough for speech, but lacking bass and mid-range for good music reproduction. There is no tone control. Stereo is available on earphones.

 

Conclusion

Outwardly a fairly good working radio, but it is let down by poor reception performance and controls that are awkward and less than intuitive to use.
