VQ Bardot DAB & DAB – I love it. Sounds good

The sound is good, but i expected a higher quality sound. I had it difficult to connect to my phone. The sound is good, but i expected a higher quality sound. I am sure you can get better for the price. It has a very good appearance.

Slick, stylish and user friendly. The sound quality for size is phenomenal, the build is robust and it is so nice to be able to bluetooth stuff from my tablet to the kitchen where it has made a new home on the table.

Great bit of kit, not the loudest but great for kitchen or conservatory.

I really like the styling on this radio, my only slight niggle being that the handle does not swivel out of the way of the operating buttons. When i first tuned it, the radio only seemed to show a small number of dab stations. I panicked at the thought of being without r4 and r4xtra, but re-read the instructions, moved the radio slightly, rebooted and up popped 96 additional channels. The sound quality is very good for a radio of its size.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • This radio certainly looks good. Radio reception is just ok (could be better
  • so chic great sound mines for my kitchen love the look
  • An excellent multi-functional DAB radio

I really enjoy this product. It is easy to use and has great functionality. The sound quality is good and the size is great for use around the house. Better than most other dab products i have used over the last 15 years. The bluetooth function has been more used than i first thought it would be and you can stream any station through the likes of tunein etc. Overall a great piece of kit.

Thanks for a great service but this was bought as a present so. Thanks for a great service but this was bought as a present so i dont know much about it but i know my daughter in law is pleased with it so that all good.

A class product which oozes style. . First impressed when i received this radio were wow, lovely designed box for the view quest bardot radio. Taking the radio from the box my wow’s kept coming, design is very nice, i’ve worked in the consumer electronics industry for near to 30 years and have seen 1000’s of radio’s, roberts has always remained a favorite but i do think my bardot inches a head for style. The radio is covered in what i guess is a leather type material a stitched handle which shouts quality. My only grumble is the handle is over the controls and doesn’t move to the side to gain easy access, the controls are not hard to get to but not a perfect set up, that’s my only moan. Sound which is always the most important is very good, rich and engaging, i always have the radio on during the morning and it was a pleasure to have the bardot on. I didn’t have any issues with pairing up my samsung galaxy s4 or my ipod to the bluetooth found and connected with ease, you can track control via the bardot which still amazes my how advanced technology has moved on. There are lots of radio’s on the market, pure, roberts are two of the well know brands, this is my first view quest product and an really impressed, its sits proudly in my newly fitted kitchen and looks superb. If your after a dab with the extra features then i wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this radio, a class product which oozes style.

Perfect addition to our home. Lovely looking, beautiful tone, great easy use functions. Great talking point with visitors, very happy with this piece of kit.

Really love this item it’s stylish and works well for my kitchen. Doesn’t blast out the sound which is good for me as the sound is clear and can be loud enough. Very easy to use and to sync with various blue tooth devices. If it had a rechargeable battery i’d give it 100%but if we go camping i can still put regular batteries in, i just would of moved it more from room to room.

Great little boom box for an afternoon picnic and in the kitchen love it.

Great dab radio good sound and easy to use.

    Easy to control from iphone and in fact the sound. Perhaps not a true hifi sound but for its size is absolutely fabulous. Easy to control from iphone and in fact the sound is even better than the radio sound when playing my music. Both the dab and fm are clear and the antenna hardly needs to be extended at all. I am quite picky when it comes to sound quality and i can assure you that you won’t be disappointed. Also looks good and is very very well made.

    Excellent radio and bluetooth speaker. Bought this as a gift for my wife. She loves listening to the radio and was looking for a bluetooth speaker. As this does both it seemed the perfect solution. We did have a few problems setting up the bluetooth, my opinion is that the instructions are poor, but we went onto the view quest web site and sent a message requesting help. A couple of days later we received a response which resolved our problem straight away. Sound quality is good both from the radio and through bluetooth. It is also used as an alarm clock which works fine also. Only complaint would be that the interface is not particularly intuitive but once you get used to it there are no problems at all.

    My daughter loved this radio. My daughter loved this radio. There was a little trouble linking to bluetooth – you need to hold down the pair button until it is found by devices but otherwise very happy.
