VQ Retro Mini DAB & DAB – Great Retro radio

Lovely sound and quality – but it does get through batteries very quickly.

Looks great and has excellent sound quality. This is a very neat little dab radio which is packed with features and looks so good. It is really well made and has a lovely solid retro feel. The colour is amazing, really rich and vibrant. I have only used it whilst plugged into the mains, but it can be battery operated. Works well as an fm or via bluetooth, dab seems a bit unreliable sometimes but that seems to be par for the course.

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.

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

Love this radio, looks so stylish and retro. Sound is good, although i’ve noticed when the back for the batteries is on the sound is muffled. When i took the cover off the sound is clear.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great compct radio
  • Fantastic little radio. Looks great and has excellent sound quality
  • Brilliant Radio well done VQ

Lovely look and great function. Lovely vintage style, looks great on my bedside table.

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.

Brilliant radio well done vq. Bought this radio for my bedside (i’m 68) brilliant little radio looks good sounds excellent very pleased with it, easy to set up and love the colour too, alarm sound is excellent and i like being able to see the clock at night even without glasses, bonus. Would recommend to anyone well done vq.

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

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.

Used in our kitchen provides enough volume and all functions work well,looks good and is cheaper than the roberts alternative.

Brought this as gift it’s so prettythe item comes with great instructions easy to understandglad i bought this my daughter will love it.

  1. 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.

    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.

    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.
