Tuning aid
Provides a signal level display which you can use to find the best position for your radio and aerial.
1. Turn the Tune knob to scroll through different channels and push to select one (UK stations are
in the range 11B to 12D). You see a signal level display. The empty block indicates the minimum
required level for reception and the filled blocks indicate the current level.

or beyond. Once you have a good signal the display will show the multiplex name and add the
stations to the station list.
3. Push the Menu button to exit the tuning aid or turn the Tune knob to select another channel.
Note You can also display the signal level at any time for a station you are listening to by pushing the
Tune knob.
DRC value
DRC (Dynamic Range Control) value makes the quieter sounds in a broadcast easier to hear at low
volume or in a noisy environment. The DRC (Dynamic Range Control) level of a broadcast is set
by the station and sent with the signal. At the time of writing in the UK only BBC Radio 3 and 4
regularly broadcast a DRC level. Check with the broadcasters to find out if they use DRC on their
stations. Turn the Tune knob to scroll through the following options and push to select one:
DRC 0 DRC is switched off. Any DRC level broadcast will be ignored. This is the default setting.
DRC ½ DRC level is set to ½ that sent with the broadcast.
DRC 1 Applies the DRC level as sent with the broadcast.
Hints and tips
(<</>>) Secondary services
Secondary services accompany some stations, providing extra information or alternative content and may only be broadcast at certain
times. At the time of writing not many secondary services are available. If a station has one or more secondary services available the
display will show ‘>>’ next to the station name on the station list and the secondary service will appear next to the station as you turn
the Tune knob. A secondary service will display ‘<<’ before the service name on the station list indicating that it belongs to the station
preceding it in the list.
(?) Inactive or unavailable stations
Inactive or unavailable stations are those which appear on the station list but are not currently available because either you are outside
the broadcast area, have lost reception or the station is not currently broadcasting. Unavailable stations have a ‘?’ before their name on
the station list. If you select a station which has this symbol, your radio tries to tune to that station. If still unavailable, you will return
to the last station you were listening to.
I hear a ‘burbling’ sound on some stations
Although DAB is excellent at providing quality audio from very little signal, the quality can suffer if the signal strength is too low. If
that happens, a ‘burbling’ sound can sometimes be heard. To help reduce this, check that your aerial is fully extended and upright. If
the problem persists try moving your radio or repositioning your aerial using the tuning aid.
Display says ‘No stations available’
Check that your aerial is fully extended. Use Autotune to search for stations. Try using the tuning aid to adjust your aerial or radio position.
My alarm didn’t work
Check the alarm settings and make sure that the alarm is set to ‘On’ (If in standby you should now see an alarm bell on the screen). If
a radio alarm, make sure the volume was turned up. Check that you don’t have headphones plugged in.
Clock shows the wrong time
This may happen if the multiplex you are tuned to broadcasts an incorrect time signal, try tuning to a station in another multiplex.
I can’t hear any audio
If the display is only showing a clock and there is no audio, your EVOKE-1XT Prestige is in standby. Push Standby to switch it on.
Resetting your radio
Resetting your radio removes all presets, stored stations and favourite stations and resets all options to defaults. To reset:
1. Press and hold the Menu button for three seconds. The screen shows ‘Press Tune to confirm reset’.
2. Push the Tune knob to confirm the reset or press no buttons to cancel the reset.
