The EVOKE-1S Marshall is wrapped in black vinyl, just like a Marshall amplifier, with solid wood construction, brass-effect control panel and a black metallic speaker grille. It comes with digital radio, OLED display, light sensor, 30 station presets and an auxiliary input to connect an audio source.
textSCAN and Intellitext have also been added so that scrolling text can be paused and controlled as well as stored for browsing at a later date. What’s more, there is also a USB input so users can add update the device in the future.
It has an integrated hi-fi speaker and features a bass reflex port alongside a custom designed 3-inch drive unit and active-filters. The optional, matching S-1 standalone speaker enables stereo output and even deeper bass.
“With its long-standing music heritage, the EVOKE-1S Marshall mixes the legendary style of the world’s leading guitar amplifiers and PURE’s iconic EVOKE-1S digital radio,” says Graeme Redman, Managing Director of PURE Australasia Pty Ltd.
Paul Marshall of Marshall Amplification said, “We’re excited to bring the Marshall brand to this fast growing segment of consumer electronics. Working with PURE we’ve created a digital radio that brings iconic Marshall design to an equally iconic radio that all listeners can embrace as a stylish statement of their love for music.”
The Evoke-1S Marshall is available for $269.
