Bristol Sound and Vision 2003
21st - 23rd February 2003

What a difference a year makes. Having successfully launched its award-winning DRX-701ES digital tuner in 2002, Pure Digital are back in force at this year's show with several exciting new products - the battery-powered Evoke-2 UK DAB radio and the new separates DAB/FM/AM DRX-702ES for the UK market. Following the success of its award-winning Evoke 1, Pure are announcing the arrival of the Evoke 2, a battery-powered DAB digital radio. Plus, there's the launch of the Special Edition Evoke 1.

Radio-Now also took a peek at the newly-announced portable handheld DAB digital radio from Pure Digital, soon to be available to DAB UK listeners. Our verdict - after being lucky enough to handle the radio: although it's still at the final development stage, it looks, feels and sounds like a really great product. Features will be comparable to the MoS radio - hardly surprising as the MoS radio was designed using Pure Digital's technology. Battery life is going to be even better than the Ministry of Sound portable DAB, thanks to one more battery than the MoS radio - you'll be able to get up to 20 hours' use from one set with this little marvel. This radio will be available from May.

Arcam's new DT81 DAB digital separates tuner, forming part of the DiVA range of hi-fi separates, is also on display.

TAGMcLaren Audio are also showing off their awesome modular high-end hi-fi system, with a touch-screen interface to operate individual components, including the AvantGarde T32R DAB analogue and digital tuner.

Away from DAB digital radio products, Tivoli has launched its quirky, rubberised portable FM/AM radio at the Bristol Show.

Sony are also at this year's show, with the current ST-D777ES full-size DAB tuner featuring in their brochures, but not on their stand.
