Ferguson Hill speakers don’t come in a standard wood casing. Their approach is space aged, using perspex and steel and the results are astounding. The system includes a stylish 16 watt amplifier in a brushed steel case carrying a single volume knob to the front face, two clear perspex horn speakers that carry both treble and mid range, two perspex spherical bass speakers and a big black perspex FH008 bass subwoofer. We initially tested the system without the FH008 using a sax/guitar/bass/drums quartet CD and found that although the sonic reproduction of the sax, guitar and drums through the horn speakers was nothing short of stunning (and I use that word advisedly), there was limited depth and width to the spherical bass speakers to truly bring out the best of the upright bass.

Adding the FH008 to the mix however, literally felt as though you were bringing the band to life, with an extraordinary reality to the reproduction of the tone and timbre in the bass range – you could actually be forgiven for thinking that you were sitting in a club listening to the band live! Clarity is key with any sound system and the audio and design technology that has been used here has produced a remarkable combination of a clean, clear sound with exceptional separation and with every nuance of sound being faithfully reproduced. This is a sound system like no other and I can only recommend that you take a listen sooner rather than later – you’ll be amazed. For more go to www.fergusonhill.co.uk

We don’t usually include radios and Hi-Fi in this column, but we were so impressed with this unit, that we thought it only right that you should know about it (if you don’t already!). If you’re an avid airwaves listener, then the Evoke 3 has to be the answer to each and every one of your prayers. It is quite simply the most advanced DAB radio in the world, combining the very latest technological innovation with what is widely considered to be one of the leading sound delivery systems in it’s class – and it’s an allBritish design!

This extraordinary radio not only allows you to view electronic programme guide listings for seven days, all easily accessible via the intuitive menu system and six line graphical display; but also, having chosen the programmes you like, you can then set multiple record times and the unit will record over fifteen hours of radio to an SD memory card. Being interrupted while you’re listening isn’t a problem, the Evoke 3 allows you to pause and rewind live radio with its state of the art ‘ReVu’ feature. As if this wasn’t enough, the unit has up to twenty timer functions to wake up to and comes with an auxiliary input so that you can listen to an iPod, mini-disc player, or CD player through its superb speakers. The Evoke 3 is also part of Pure’s ‘EcoPlus’ range, so you’ll be glad to know that it uses just a fifth of the standby power of other similar units. It is truly remarkable.
