VQ Retro Lulu Guinness Mini DAB/DAB – Lovely look and great function

As someone who listens to the radio regularly throughout the day, this is an ideal companion. It was the design that first struck me – small and compact – then, after purchase, discovering that it was solidly built and gave a loud (adjustable), clear sound. Good reception on dab offering a varied range of stations and, with 30 pre-sets, there’s no problem in storing favourites. There’s another 30 on fm and has bluetooth facility (though i haven’t used that). Lightweight and very easy to carry around, though it stays in one place as i bought another for upstairs. That shows how much i like it.

I bought this because i liked the look of it and thought it was about time to replace my 25 five year old alarm clock/ghetto blaster combo. The sound quality of the retro mini is excellent. I did wonder if the reception would be okay as i live in an area with poor radio reception, but it’s as clear as a bell and i don’t even need to put the aerial up. I bought the blue one because it was cheapest. I’d have preferred the wallflower one but couldn’t justify paying an extra £35 for a pretty design.

Fairly easy to use, good sound.

Lovely little radio with good sound quality and volume. A bit disappointed that theusb can’t be used to play music but to be honest in the description it did only say “ for charging”.

Over the moon with my radio the sound is fantastic and the look of it is smart and compact. Over the moon with my radio the sound is fantastic and the look of it is smart and compact.

Good quality, looks stylish clear sound, and easy to function. The bluetooth mode is an added bonus.

Works a treat, daughter loves it and does what it says, we had 2 other makes before this one that stopped working within days so this is worth the extra bit of money.

Very pleased battery’s last much longer than the last radio i had.

This radio does exactly what it says at a really good price.

Really great all round radio and the auxiliary and bluetooth very handy too. Already tried 2 other cheaper options which really disappointed so i decided after much research to try this one and i haven’t been disappointed. Great value for money and would definitely recommend.

This is in the bathroom so i had to get some rechargeable batteries. But they last for ages before needing charging. Good quality sound easy button controls on front.

    Have had this radio for a few weeks now, and i absolutely love it. I predominately use the mains, but i also put batteries in it and take it into the garden, use when relaxing in a bath, when ironing, everywhere really. The sound is never distorted, it’s lightweight and bang on trendy. How did i manage without it.

    Its awesome – self setting and just a design delight – love it.
      1. Nice little radio, as other have says very tricky to set up pre sets. Vq why can you make your instructions clearer, as a layman to try and use the instructions then you will see the bits you miss out.
