Expensive is an under-statement! I wouldn't pay 20 quid for DAB, even if it does look like a guitar amp.
Is this a new model? Or has it just taken an age to getting one through the door for review? I only ask as my mate has had one for a couple of years now!From experience (and poor memory), I used to use it around the flat whenever he disappeared for a weekend. Does its thing as well as can be expected - the "cool" factor of having a Marshal DAB amp/radio is debatable but the sound quality was as good as any other DAB I have listened too.
Regarding the volume, this model DOES go up to 11. It´s louder than 10.
@Jones: Yes, the Evoke-1XT Marshall has been around since 2006:http://www.pure.com/press/rele...This is the newer Evoke-1S.
@Nick Rosemeyer: As Keanu Reeves would say, there is no 11. It's just a kitsch homage, which is perhaps entirely fitting. Pure have painted 0 to 11 around the volume knob, but the knob itself is a continually turning rotary encoder, rather than a potentiometer. The numbers are meaningless - the regular Evoke-1S just has + and - symbols. See the video review at 1:55 to see what I mean.It takes the cool away a bit though, like a hot hatch with a false exhaust.
