VQ Retro Mini DAB & DAB : Great Retro radio

A good dab radio for the price. No problems really; it sounds reasonable, can be set up in less than a minute and even has an alarm. Looks great too and the quality is nice.

Just cant believe the sound of this radio. It’s perfect for my kitchen.

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

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.

Super cute and super sound. . Looks stylish, sounds great and as my second vq radio purchase, i have been very pleased so far. Easy to preset stations and i love how this looks in my bedroom. Only drawback (which is nothing to do with vq) is that this has come down £6 in price in a day since i ordered it from amazon.

VQ Retro Mini DAB & DAB+ Digital Radio with FM, Bluetooth & Alarm Clock – Emma Bridgewater Rose & Bee : Sound quality is great on both dab and fm wavelength. I’d assumed the former would be a problem but i was pleasantly surprised. My only grumble is that when it is uses batteries, the battery life doesn’t last long. If you’re going for all day use then stick with the main power operation. I am purchasing alkaline batteries to determine if this makes a difference.

Super little piece of kit, great quality, fab radio, really easy to pair with bluetooth and play music from your phone etc, speaker quality good and really stylish. I love mine good investment.

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

I absolutely adore this radio. It’s amazinggreat quality, easily pairs up to my iphone.

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.

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.

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.

Good sound for a small unit. Bought this for my daughter. She loves the style and it works very well. Good sound for a small unit.

    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.

    Really well packaged and the radio itself is *beautiful*. . Really sturdy, good quality and lovely retro finish. Super easy to set up: i’d programme my fave stations, set an alarm and paired to bluetooth in 5minutes. Great sound quality both for radio and via bluetooth.
