Product Description

VQ have always had a knack for combining classic design with modern functionality, and with the VQ Monty, they have really outdone themselves. With a gorgeous wooden casing, refreshingly modern front panel, and a host of connectivity options, the Monty is one of the best small DAB radios on the market.

Get onboard with the digital revolution

If you’re yet to explore the world of DAB radio, then the VQ Monty makes for the ideal introduction. Finding your new favourite digital stations is simple thanks to the Monty’s handy auto-scan button. With just one touch, it will automatically pick up all available stations in your area. What’s more, the Monty’s antenna is particularly reliable at picking up a strong signal. That means you can enjoy interference-free listening across a wider range of stations than ever before.

Beautiful design with natural-grain wood casing

It’s no exaggeration to say that the VQ Monty is one of the most beautiful DAB radios on the market. Offering the perfect blend of classic style and modern convenience, the Monty is as beautiful as it is functional. The case is made from real walnut wood, which has been left untreated to allow the natural wood grain to show through. That gives the Monty a stunning mid-century modern style which is sure to stand out in your home.

Retro style meets modern connectivity

While the VQ Monty may look like a vintage radio on first glance, a closer inspection reveals a whole host of modern connectivity options which make it so much more than just a radio. On top of the DAB and FM radio modes, the Monty also includes Bluetooth functionality to let you take charge of the soundtrack yourself. There’s also an AUX-in port to connect up wired devices, and a headphone jack for private listening. The VQ Monty even boasts a USB charging port, so you can keep your smartphone powered up while you stream.

Take your Monty on the go with the optional battery pack

On its own, the Monty makes for the perfect bedside or bookshelf DAB radio. However, it’s small size also makes it the ideal choice for taking your music on the go. Luckily, the optional Monty battery pack allows you to do exactly that! Simply slot it into the back of the DAB radio, and you’ll get up to 25 hours of enjoyment from your VQ Monty, wherever you go. Whether you’re listening in the garden, or taking your DAB radio along on a day out, the VQ Monty is the perfect pick.

    Really like the design of this radio and the sound quality is superb. Bought to replace a knackered old Pure radio and this is much better. Great quality for the price!

    Great sounding radio

    Love the look and sound of the Monty. I bought mine as an alarm clock. The screen stays lit up but its not bright enough to interfere with my sleep. There's a quick start guide in the box but not a complete manual- which would have stopped my confusion at the menu button only working when the radio is actually switched on! All in all I'm very pleased with it, I love waking up to the radio every morning.

    Exceeded expectations

    I decided this DAB radio after doing some research on Which?. This was one of their "best buys" and got a good write up. Primarily bought to use in the kitchen and having the bluetooth option is useful if I want to use it as a speaker to listen to my own music. Sound quality is very good for both voice and music - have noticed an improvement compared to the John Lewis radio that it replaced. Looks nice and good price & service from Ligo - would highly recommend!

    • Stylish design
    • Fantastic sound
    • Bluetooth
    • Clear reception

    • Preset buttons would’ve been a nice touch

    I bought this a couple of weeks ago and cannot fault it. It's beautifully made, looks great, and sounds fantastic. Bluetooth function works really well streaming from my mobile, and I use the USB port on the back to charge my mobile, which is handy. Really recommend it and can see why Which? awarded it as one of their “Best Buys”.

    Just what we were after - 5 stars!

    After spending quite a lot of money on a DAB radio from a reputable high street department store and having to return it due to the AWFUL sound quality, we thought we’d do some proper research before buying a replacement. We could have opted for something more expensive but we really liked the look and size of the Monty and it got favourable reviews from numerous different sources.

    We have now been using the Monty for a little over a month and can highly recommend it. Happy to report that the sound quality is excellent with great depth compared to other tinny DABs we’ve heard. It is very easy to use with a good number of features including an alarm, Bluetooth connect, equaliser and USB charging. It can also be battery operated so no doubt in the summer months on the rare days of sunshine we will be unplugging it and making use of the handle to carry it out into the garden to enjoy the Archers and a glass of Pimms! All in all, a great purchase. Have used Ligo on numerous occasions over the years and their staff and service is always impeccable!

    + Sound quality
    + Easy to use
    + Well made, good design
    + Portable

    - Screen might be too bright if you wanted to keep it by your bedside
