    Solid sound and looks the part too

    I admit that I wasn't expecting all that much from just a small wooden box- I just bought the Monty as a bedside radio. However, I'm pleasantly surprised by the sound quality as well as the nice look of the radio. Easy to tune and seems to be better at picking up DAB stations than other radios I've owned. The Bluetooth mode is great for listening to podcasts from my tablet too. Hopefully I will get many years of use out of the Monty!

    Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin

    Really fantastic radio that does exactly what it says on the tin. Sound quality is excellent and I love the sleep function that lets us drift off without having to worry about switching the radio off!

    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.

    Love my Monty!

    Only had my Monty a few days and I already love it. I wasn't sure if I'd get good DAB signal in my home but after phoning liGo they reassured me that I lived near a transmitter so I would. There are lots of stations available and the DAB and wireless modes are both simple and straightforward.

    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!

    Fantastic!

    Pros
    • Stylish design
    • Fantastic sound
    • Bluetooth
    • Clear reception

    Cons
    • 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

    Lovely looking, great sound!

    I am absolutely thrilled with this radio. I had read very positive reviews of it online and in Which? and really liked the look of it. The sound quality is excellent, it's easy to use and clock display is useful. Perfect size for our kitchen. Very happy I bought it and would highly recommended.

    Beautiful radio with excellent sound

    This is a beautiful radio with excellent sound and was very easy to set up. The radio comes well packaged and has a nice quality feel to it - with a little sample of wood on the outside of the box to indicate the colour inside (these nice little touches count!). Minimal set-up required and the instructions are easy to follow. It paired up with my iPhone via Bluetooth without any hassle and the sound quality over Bluetooth is brilliant. I did a fair amount of research and read a lot of reviews before deciding what to purchase and feel that it has paid off. This is a good quality radio, that looks great, and sounds fantastic. Very pleased with it and would recommend!
