VQ Christie DAB & DAB – BUG WITH THIS PRODUCT – READ BEFORE BUYING

Does what it says, good quality.

Ashame that it loses an hour every now and then, for some bizarre unknown reason?. Which is very frustrating if you want to be on time for work in the mornings.

I love this radio, good sound quality and bluetooth connectivity. I like that the display rotates according to which way up you place it. The best dab/bluetooth radio on the market at this price.

Very pleased, partner loved it, it sounds & looks excellent, sits neatly in her kitchin giving her a much wanted dab radio & a bluetooth speaker & charger for her iphone. When we go away to the beach & for those lazy sunny evenings in the garden she’s planning to have it with her as i also bought the battery pack & carry strap.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Stylish, funky, great sound quality, easy to use.
  • Amazing in a small package
  • I love this radio

Well, i just love this little pretty gem. It has a good full sound which has enough volume for me to hear it throughout the upstairs of the house (it’s in a bedroom). I found it pretty easy to programme, the bluetooth works like a treat a great surprise as we sometimes have problems with signals in our house. I love the fact the i can change the aspect of it depending on where it is or how ever the feel takes me on the day.

Looks great and sounds great, so many different ways to use this.

Awesome kit better than roberts radios any day. Bought this as a birthday present for my non-techy partner. She switched it on, it sorted out radio stations date and time itself and she had it streaming through bluetooth a couple of minutes later. It looks fabulous, very retro and i suspect we won’t be buying roberts radios any more having found this. Colour choices are very cool, 10w bass sounds really top quality. Enamel finish just adds to the retro chic.

Really good sound night light very unobtrusive but time can be. Really good soundnight light very unobtrusive but time can be seen without having to make brighter.

The obly problem i have with it is the dab signal, although this is the area we are in and me not doing my research. In retrospect i should have got an internet radio. So check the dab signal in your area before you get a dab radio. Anyway, this radio has fm and bluetooth or nfc connectivity so can easily play through my phone. For such a little radio the speaker is excellent sound quality. The menus are easy to navigate and select what you want. No problems here with the device.

Great sound, looks good very happy :-).

I love this radio ,it totally surpasses my expectations. Sound quality superb and the look is fabulous. I was going to get a roberts but after reading reviews.

Great radio, funky retro look. Immediately once you get this out of the box it looks lovely. It has a nice retro look and the shade of red with the one i got is very nice. Its easy to set up and you can have it out of the box, plugged in and blasting out your favourite dab stations in minutes. The buttons are fairly easy to work out and there are instructions included to follow if you’re having any problems. The sound is very good from such a small box and is certainly comparable to other digital radio’s i’ve had. There’s alarm features to set, and a handy flip dial that works whether you stand it upright or on its side. It also has bluetooth capabilities so you can stream your collection from other bluetooth enabled music devices. The one drawback is that the battery pack does not come with this item, but as a separate add on (with separate cost, of course). But having been impressed with the unit i will certainly look at adding that to this set.

    I wanted a dab radio for ages. I finally took the plunge with the vq christie and it is perfect. It looks beautiful and sounds lovely. You can connect it via blue tooth to you phone or ipad and use it like a speaker too. I nearly bought a more expensive dab radio without this function, i would have been missing out. The only thing negative i could say about this is i had to buy a separate rechargeable battery and the battery itself does not look as well made as the radio. But nothing wrong with this lovely radio.

    Easy to use and set up and great sound quality. However, the lowest possible volume setting on it is so ridiculously loud i had to return it for a refund. If you like your music loud then this is for you but if you prefer something quieter first thing in the morning then i’m very sorry to say you’ll have to look elsewhere. Really disappointing because otherwise this is an excellent radio and bluetooth speaker.

    As expected for a digital radio the sound is great. It’s amazing how speaker technology had improved in. This was bought to keep me sane whilst lodging with the in-laws whilst waiting for a house sale to go through. Also bought the battery pack and strap. As expected for a digital radio the sound is great. It’s amazing how speaker technology had improved in recent years and how something relatively small can produce such rounded sound. I would recommend getting the battery pack. It’s a tad expensive, but the freedom to just unplug it and take it elsewhere in the house, or outside on a sunny day, or on a picnic (as we did) is worth it.
