    What We Think
    The VQ Monty combines an eye-catching retro inspired design with powerful audio for a listening experience that rivals much pricier models. We were instantly impressed with the build quality of the VQ Monty, which features a real wooden case with an exposed wood grain.

    What We Think
    The Roberts Blutue T2 is a superb portable DAB radio and Bluetooth speaker. Its ability to take AA batteries sets it apart from most other portable speakers at this price point, which typically require an additional battery pack. It even recharges compatible batteries while plugged in to the mains, to keep you from running out of juice in the middle of your favourite tracks. Despite its small size, the Blutune T2 does a great job of filling small-to-medium-sized rooms with sound from its speaker. It also has a full-colour screen, as well as a convenient carry handle for easy use.

  • 3. VQ Retro Mini Portable DAB & FM Radio with Bluetooth in Oak

    A premium Bluetooth speaker & radio that's great value for money

    What We Think
    The VQ Retro Mini is a stylish, eye-catching DAB radio that's packed with vintage charm. Its impressive audio quality belies its small stature and we were blown away by the clarity even at the highest volumes. The 5W speaker driver coped surprisingly well with all types of music and spoken word so don’t worry about whether you’ll be able to hear over the noise of an extractor fan. While the VQ Retro Mini is primarily a DAB radio, it also comes with built-in Bluetooth connectivity, making it ideal for use as a Bluetooth speaker, too. Unlike VQ's other portable DAB radios, the Retro Mini does not require a special battery pack, and instead takes 4 standard AA batteries. Best of all, it's beautifully designed, with a real wood casing for the perfect premium feel.

    What We Think
    Pure were one of the first companies to start producing DAB radios, and bring with them over a decade of experience. The H3 is their flagship model, and it certainly lives up to Pure's reputation. With a real wood body and carefully sculpted interior, the Evoke H3 has surprisingly strong acoustics for a small speaker. The audio sounds a lot more natural as a result, and it’s also a pleasing aesthetic touch. The controls are nice and straightforward, as everything you need is right there on the top of the unit, leaving the front panel clear and uncluttered. Even better, the full-colour screen helps to make this digital radio even easier to use. Finally, the Evoke H3 even comes with a whopping 40 preset options. If you always find yourself flicking around the dial, this could be the option for you!

    A true modern classic, the Roberts Rambler BT Stereo takes everything we loved about the original Rambler BT and adds an extra speaker for full stereo sound.
