A new radio from PURE? It’s the Evoke F4…

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

There is a new radio on the market which we have all put on our ‘wish list’. It is from PURE and is rather clever – say “hello” to the PURE Evoke F4 radio.

The Evoke F4 Digital and Internet radio with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (to give it its full title) is based on PURE’s multi award-winning Evoke Flow radio which proved very popular. The F4 has been further improved and developed, and has been designed to work with the PURE Jongo range of wireless multi-room products, which offers the ability to synchronised music throughout the home.

Like with other digital (DAB) radios, the user of the F4 can listen to a massive selection of digital and FM radio stations, but as the F4 also features Wi-Fi capabilities the user can access radio stations, music channels, on demand services and podcasts from around the world. There is also the option to stream tracks from PURE Music, which is an online subscription service created for PURE users, by PURE and it offers over 15 million music tracks so there should always be something to listen to, no matter what mood the user is in.

So far the Evoke F4 sounds a lot like the Evoke Flow, but this is where that all changes. The F4 features innovative tagging technology, which means that just by pressing a button the user can find out the name of the track currently playing, and the artist. Once tagged, the track can be purchased there and then, or it can be saved and bought at a later time through the PURE Connect website. It can also be added to any PURE Music playlists that the user may have created. Don’t forget that the PURE Connect App (for iPad, iPhone and Android) can be used to stream audio wirelessly using the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.

If there is a particular radio programme that you can’t miss then there is the ability to record live internet and digital radio. Instant and timed recordings can be done using a USB stick to store the recordings. Ordinarily a 2GB memory stick should hold approximately 15 hours of digital radio. This recording ability not only means that the user won’t miss their favourite programme ever again, but it also allows them to share the recording with friends and family.

Key features:

DAB/DAB+/DMB radio), FM and internet radio (via Wi-Fi or Ethernet)

Wi-Fi supported with WEP and WPA/WPA2 encryption

Streaming capabilities – use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

A Multi-room product –   Use the Jongo family of speakers to enjoy music wirelessly throughout the home

Two alarms

Sleep and kitchen timers

Aux-in socket for iPod or MP3 player

Headphone socket

Large high-contrast OLED display

Optional rechargeable battery – PURE ChargePAK F1

USB socket

Two year PURE warranty

As you would expect with a PURE radio, the sound quality on the Evoke F4 has not been compromised by all the technology. The radio “delivers the best possible sound quality, using highly energy efficient Class-D audio amplification and in-house digital signal processing loudspeaker correction, equalisation and sound profiling.”                                                                                                                 PURE May 2013

One for the sports fans

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

We’ve got the Jubilee out of the way, so now it is time to focus on the Olympic Games in London. With over 14,500 Olympians and Paralympians taking part, and more than 9 million tickets distributed, the 2012 games are going to be one of the biggest (if not the biggest) yet. So, it is no wonder that everyone is jumping on the bandwagon on an Olympic scale – even energy companies are using the games as a marketing tool – and electrical appliance manufacturers are no different.

There have been a number of limited edition portable radios launched by both PURE and Roberts Radio to celebrate 2012. All are DAB enabled for easy access to the new BBC Sport radio station that will cover all the sporting events, as they happen, and most feature a Union Jack design so you can show your support for the Team GB athletes as they compete in front of the entire globe.

The two PURE models are the ‘One Mini Union Jack’ and ‘One Mi Union Jack’. Both are compact enough to travel and produce brilliant sound quality for their size. The One Mini has a headphone in socket, and an auxiliary connection so that an iPod or MP3 player can be attached. Both models offer 16 presets so that it is quick and easy to find the station you need and both can be powered by a mains connection or a PURE ChargePAK. The price of the One Mi is £34.99 and the One Mini is £49.99.

Roberts Radio has released a Union Jack version of their popular Sports DAB 2 Portable Radio. Featuring a built-in loudspeaker, built-in rechargeable battery, 20 station presets, Key lock and earphones this pocket-sized radio is perfect for any discerning sports fan. The Sports DAB 2 Union Jack is £71.90 from Go-Electrical now.

These models are limited edition and once stock has gone, there will be no more. Get yours quick, and don’t miss out on an exciting summer of sporting events.

 

 

Wedding Season is underway…

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

It’s that time of year again. The wedding bells are chiming, and every weekend seems to be filled with some friend or relative tying the knot. What to give the happy couple is always a dilemma no matter how well you know the bride or groom, so here at Go-Electrical we have created a list of must-buys to help you make your decision. Suiting a range of budgets the products we have selected would also make great anniversary presents. Why not take a look? You never know, your present might just be the one that the newly-weds love the most.

Another new PURE product

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Our favourite audio manufacturer (PURE of course, silly) will soon be releasing a new product that we have known about for quite some time.  Here at Go-Electrical we are just too excited to finally get our hands on this brilliant piece of technology, and I can guarantee that when it lands no work will be happening in the office! Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the PURE Sensia 200D Connect.

The PURE Sensia 200D Connect is a portable wireless music and radio system, with a colour touchscreen, USB recording, streaming capabilities, fantastic sound and social media capabilities. Technology that is so up to date, anyone who doesn’t buy one will be jealous of what it can do.

The Sensia 200D Connect will stream your choice of music via the Pure Music site and from your own music library on your computer. Hundreds and thousands of internet radio stations are at the tip of your fingers with this product, but it will also pick up DAB and FM radio. Don’t forget that as it uses Wi-Fi there are endless on-demand programmes and podcasts to choose from too! There is also an input point for an iPod or MP3 player so there will always be something to listen to.

If, while listening, there is a song that you like but don’t know who it is by the Sensia 200D will identify the song for you, and with PURE Tag you can also buy songs as you listen to them. With USB recording capabilities, never again will a favourite radio programme be missed as the recording function can be set for a specific time whether it is a one off, or a kind of series link – The Archer’s anyone?

Featuring a beautiful touch screen (but also control buttons, and a remote) it is amazingly easy to navigate, and there are apps that can be used just like on mobile phones – Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, RSS feeds and more. Keeping in touch with friends, and sharing what you are listening to has never been so easy, and to make your friends jealous, why not take your Sensia 200D Connect with you? The optional ChargePak means that the radio is not restricted to the indoors, and you can enjoy music or radio wherever you go.

Team all of the above with amazing PURE Clearsound audio, stunning good looks and the PURE Lounge website and App and you really do have an amazing piece of kit. Never again will listening to the “wireless” be classed as boring or dull. Now, where do we queue up for one of these??

Keep your eyes peeled for the PURE Sensia 200D Connect landing on Go-Electrical. They are currently available to pre-order, but stock will move quick – you have been warned.

AirPlay now available with PURE

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

The newest addition to the PURE Contour family is the Contour 200i Air. It is a compact but surprisingly powerful digital music system featuring ‘AirPlay’ which is Apple’s wireless streaming technology, and a dock for iPod, iPhone or iPad.

Music or radio station broadcasts can be streamed from a compatible Apple device, or from iTunes to the Contour 200i Air using a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection. ‘AirPlay’ enables the streaming of high quality audio and two-way synchronization – this means that the volume can be altered on either device and it will change on both accordingly. The clever thing about this new audio product is that it enables users to set up a multiroom wireless speaker system, simply put a Contour 200i Air in any room and you can send audio to them all simultaneously – this means that you don’t have to spend thousands of pounds on a speaker system for your home.

PURE Music is now LIVE

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Be fashionable in 2012

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

According to the website adesignerspot.com colour is big for interiors in 2012;

“This year, we should all embrace colors that we wouldn’t normally associate, combine intense shades with balancing tones and think out of the box, giving our home a brand new personality. Dare to celebrate neon shades, using fluorescent green, yellow or pink, delivering thus new accent elements to your freshly decorated interior”

(www.adesignerspot.com 05/01/2012)

This got me thinking about how we can bring colour into our homes without tearing off the existing wallpaper, and painting the walls in clashing colours – can you imagine the headache – and I hit on the perfect conclusion…Coloured appliances and electricals.

Here at Go-Electrical we have a range of ‘Retro’ refrigerators that are available in some amazing colours. Whether it be a Gorenje or a Smeg, there is a fridge, or fridge freezer to match every budget and colour palette whether it be blue, pink or even candy striped (Smeg FAB28QCS £1279.90).

We also stock a fabulous range of Dualit toasters which are available in over 15 different colours. From a 2 slice Vario to a massive, family sized 6 slice toaster, Dualit should be the first port of call if you need a new toaster. Every part of the iconic appliances are replaceable which means your Dualit toaster could outlive you (grim thought, sorry!) and with Swiss-made timers used on every model you can expect nothing but reliable performance and perfect toast time after time.

To add a splash of colour to your kitchen and be in with the ‘cool crowd’ why not spend your hard earned cash (or Christmas money) on a KitchenAid Artisan Stand mixer? If you saw any of the lifestyle programs on TV last year, such as ‘The Great British Bake Off’, ‘Saturday Kitchen’ and ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Britain’ you couldn’t miss the KitchenAid mixer being used, or casually positioned in the background shots. This prominence in the media has made the mixers extremely sought after, and some colours sell out almost instantly. The mixers are available in over 25 colours, and open up endless possibilities in the kitchen because of the amazing range of accessories that are available for them. Homemade pasta anyone?

Even music lovers do not have to miss out on adding a bit of colour to their homes. PURE and Roberts Radio both make portable radios in a range of colours. The PURE Evoke Mio DAB/FM model is available in Teal, Lava, Cherry and Grape, while there is over 15 colours of Roberts RD60 Revival radios to choose from including a Union Jack print. Sounds cool to me.

Hopefully, this has convinced you that you don’t need to redecorate your whole house to be in with the fashionable crowd in 2012. Why not explore the Go-Electrical website further to see what else you can find in some lovely bright colours?
