OK, so I've had a Pure Bug for a couple of years, primarily for its excellent recording functionality. The Evoke-3 would probably represent an upgrade, but I have one major decision (given the Evoke-3 eventually falls within a reasonable price range, of course...). Read on... My original Bug had an audible background interference from the speakers that was incredibly disconcerting at low volumes. It was exaggerated when using earphones (frankly unbearable), so I gave up on that idea, too. Eventually, this drove me mad, so I begrudgingly sent it back (I'm partially-sighted, so hate to part with my radio). To give Pure their due, they were absolutely superb and even replaced it with a Pure Too. However, much to my horror and crushing disappointment, it exhibits the same symptoms. Pure conceded that "there is some background noise on the BUG radio at very low volumes", so I'm stuck with it - surely my heightened levels of hearing aren't so pronounced that I'm the only person who has noticed this racket? I've turned off all possible interference sources (DECT, WiFi etc.) to no avail and have moved house (no, not purely to escape the noise!) but things haven't improved. Which, finally, leads me to my questions: Who else has noticed this? Does the Evoke-3 suffer similarly? I'm hoping it's a shielding issue and that the Evoke-3 is far better in that respect. But, alas, I'm not prepared to spend £160 to find out! There are few affordable alternatives out there (I've heard mixed reviews about the Roberts' offerinhgs that record) and I'm not interested in a PC or Freeview based solution to record radio... Any thoughts or suggestions would be very gratefully received.
