VQ Hepburn Mk II DAB & DAB : definitely recommend

To start with the very good:this seems incredibly superior. There is the slightest of hiss discernible if your ear is proper up close but in any other case there is amazing clarity and fidelity to its audio. From dab, bluetooth or by using the aux enter, this device definitely does audio incredibly sweet without a doubt. Tuning both equally dab and fm radios is straightforward and does not require a map and countless endurance to realize, contrary to other machines like this i have attempted. Bluetooth pairing is in the same way pain-free. The seem fills the area (with the quantity cranked up a bit) in a way that has you looking for the hifi speakers. It would make you feel there are speakers at least double its measurement in the place someplace. This thing’s projection seriously does make you do a double-acquire. Now the poor:location the alarm is pants.

Lovely quality, sound & colour, only received it today but found it easy to use and great sound, very happy with it. Ordered the battery pack to go with it, think this is worth the extra cost :-).

Beforehand opened advertised as new. My radio arrived up coming day via amazon prime, received it set up and many others. I observed that it experienced some marks (very modest) on some of the entire body perform. I also recognized that it was pretty wobbly when stood up one of the rubber feet had been missing i realised, making it unstable. It was nowhere to be noticed in the box and the box also has some signals of wear on it. I am satisfied with the radio but i do not imagine it ought to have been mis-bought as new when it shows signs of the reverse. Pretty upset with amazon on this celebration.

Truly you should, sounds great, appears to be great.

I was unhappy to obtain this item was not new as marketed. I was disappointed to find this merchandise was not new as advertised. The box experienced been opened prior to and the radio had scratches on the handle. The radio works well but the dab channels experienced already been tuned so it experienced definitely been applied before. I ordered an additional radio like this a single prior to christmas so i know what the radio should really search like when it is a new unused product or service. You have to adhere to the set up on the directions and tune the radio in additionally it will come sealed in the protecting wrapping. The radio does get the job done and it seems good so i are not able to be bothered sending it again mainly because i might get a further radio sent which does not perform, this is just a reduction of self-assurance with the vendor why i am not returning it. I did not want to generate a evaluate moaning but when the vendor advertises a new products and you acquire a applied one particular i did sense a tiny cheated. On the as well as side the radio is a fantastic little bit of package, i would advise it.

VQ Hepburn Mk II DAB & DAB+ Digital Radio with FM, Bluetooth & Alarm Clock – Emma Bridgewater Polka Dot : Only buy if you love emma bridgewater designs. I bought this particular radio as i love emma bridgewater. It is an ok radio, although the finish is not great and the buttons a little stiff. One particularly strange feature is that with the battery pack, it does not charge when plugged in when the radio is switched on. It is a good looking radio, although expensive and less functional than the alternatives.

Pleasant warm tone to the sound (classic fm) guidelines could. Got the red 1 for my wife and she loves it. Great warm tone to the seem (common fm) guidelines could be printed a small even bigger, but thats a minimal nit pic.

Appears to be like great, fantastic characteristics, good benefit for money. . Just received this these days soon after exploring dab radios for a couple of weeks. I acquired it from argos as i experienced some vouchers that could be used there, i chose the cream colour as i assumed it appeared pretty sensible. This is tremendous- it appears to be remarkable and the controls are simple to use. The high quality is really superior- i am no pro but rather satisfied with it. I really like it that i can pair it to my cell phone and participate in my individual songs, together with spotify and it can all be managed by bluetooth by using the vq ap. You are capable to plug in your mobile phone through an auxillary cable and it has a usb port to demand your telephone at the exact time i consider. An additional very good place is that you can set batteries in and it can be utilised as a portable radio- i am not confident if when you plug the radio in to mains if it can demand the batteries up while. I question i will be utilizing this radio as an ‘out and about radio’ as its pretty good and the masking is pale cream faux leather-based and it would be a disgrace for it to get soiled or scuffed so i imagine i wouldn’t seriously use this attribute.

Had it for just about a yr now and so content with it. Experienced it for nearly a 12 months now and so pleased with it. Bluetooth was a little bit difficult to set up but managed in the stop and now connects mechanically.

Very costly but the seem is excellent. Pretty costly but the audio is wonderful. This replaces a pure radio that gave up the ghost.

Excellent sounding radio with heaps of d a b stations. . An fantastic beautiful crimson radio.

Had it for just about a yr now and so content with it. Experienced it for nearly a 12 months now and so pleased with it. Bluetooth was a little bit difficult to set up but managed in the stop and now connects mechanically.

It appears to be like incredibly pleasant and the leather-based end is wonderful. I experienced higher anticipations for this radio but was a bi permit down, it’s possible i anticipated far too significantly for this price. The audio top quality is honest, it is not a hi fidelity top quality, seems boxy and boomy but mid and substantial rage is clear and detailed. It appears to be quite wonderful and the leather finish is terrific. The knobs sense a bit inexpensive nevertheless. General i desired a little something better sounding and superior crafted so i returned this and used £100 extra for ruark r1. I appreciated the fact that it has usb charging port and aux enter on the again so i could link chromecast to it and be capable to stream from any application on my phone. Chromecast then will get electrical power from the usb port and will not then need to have further ability socket.

    1. Rich & clear sound wrapped in a stylish design. . I was looking for a radio to use in my garage and had intended buying a cheaper set. On visiting a local retail store i had the opportunity to listen to an array of dab radios which were on display. The sound quality of the cheaper set (£50) i intended to buy was average at best. I worked my way up the price range until i got to the vq hepburn ii. I’d never heard of vq so had no preconceptions. The vq has a lovely rich, clear tone. It was by far the best of all the sets i tried and as ultimately a radio is for listening to, the design and functions are all secondary to how it sounds. The beautiful clarity of the sound persuaded me to spend more money. Having decided i needed to dig a little deeper into my pockets i tried other sets around the same price but still preferred the vq.

    It looks great and is well made. The sound is good – not excellent but not bad either. I think optional £20 for a battery is a bit steep but i’d recommend it.

      1. First the good:this sounds very good. There is the slightest of hiss discernible if your ear is right up close but otherwise there is impressive clarity and fidelity to its sound. From dab, bluetooth or via the aux input, this unit really does sound very sweet indeed. Tuning both dab and fm radios is straightforward and doesn’t need a map and endless patience to achieve, unlike other machines like this i have tried. Bluetooth pairing is similarly painless. The sound fills the room (with the volume cranked up a bit) in a way that has you looking for the hifi speakers. It makes you believe there are speakers at least double its size in the room somewhere. This thing’s projection really does make you do a double-take. Now the bad:setting the alarm is pants.

    Superb sound quality, excellent after-sales service – but the battery pack should be standard. Overall, this vq hepburn mark ii hearkens back to the original roberts and hacker-style radios that we all used to listen to the light programme. Ahh, nostalgia – it ain’t what it used to be. But seriously, i bought one of these after listening to several different brands in a curry’s superstore – and invested in the “optional” battery pack from amazon – and why it has been docked one star is that the battery pack should not be optional, but should be included with every radio. Rant over – though there was an issue with the battery pack wiring that i have reported elsewhere and which was swiftly resolved by the uk manufacturer – they actually swapped my hepburn for a bardot – which sounds even better and takes standard “c” cell batteries – problem solved. Anyway, the hepburn sounds smoothly superb, all the functions are relatively simple to operate – though some reference must be made to the instructions if you want to use the alarm function – and it pulls in stations loud and clear. The only other thing i didn’t like was the fact that (unlike older roberts or hacker radios), you cannot simply “clip” the handle on & off – which i wanted to do, so as to pack it in a protective zipped case for travelling – we all know what happens to suitcases in airport baggage halls, these days. Still, a couple of gentle touches with my dremel and some heavy-duty velcro patches et voila, a removeable handle.

      1. Looks good, great features, good value for money. . Just got this today after researching dab radios for a couple of weeks. I bought it from argos as i had some vouchers that could be used there, i chose the cream colour as i thought it looked quite smart. This is super- it looks amazing and the controls are easy to use. The quality is pretty good- i’m no expert but pretty happy with it. I love it that i can pair it to my phone and play my own music, including spotify and it can all be controlled by bluetooth via the vq ap. You are able to plug in your phone via an auxillary cable and it has a usb port to charge your phone at the same time i think. Another good point is that you can put batteries in and it can be used as a portable radio- i’m not sure if when you plug the radio in to mains if it can charge the batteries up though. I doubt i will be using this radio as an ‘out and about radio’ as its very smart and the covering is pale cream faux leather and it would be a shame for it to get dirty or scuffed so i think i wouldn’t really use this feature.

    1. Nice warm tone to the sound (classic fm) instructions could. Got the red one for my wife and she loves it. Nice warm tone to the sound (classic fm) instructions could be printed a little bigger, but thats a minor nit pic.
