    Solid

    Solid dab radio, good premium feel to it for the price. Great sound and the usb charger port is a nice touch!

    Nice radio

    For: The sound quality is excellent, it is mains and battery operated so can carry it around the house, option to have separate alarms for weekday and weekend, bluetooth functionality, USB charging socket, the look and feel of it
    Against: The display screen is very bright so not ideal for a bedside radio (you can adjust the brightness but even at the lowest setting is still quite bright), it can also take a lot of button presses to change radio stations, modes, alarms, etc.

    Impressive for such a small unit

    If you're looking for a full-blown sound system then this isn't it. But if you want something smaller for a bit of background music I would certainly recommend the Monty. The speaker is 10W so it can go surprisingly loud while still sounding crystal clear. The bass is also very good for such a small unit.

    Decent product

    Decent product with decent sound. Not a speaker to use as your main sound system but great as a bedside radio and occasional portable speaker. I found it a little tricky to get the hang of the touchscreen controls at first but it's easy enough once you're used to it. Nice to see that there's a usb charging point which makes charging my phone at night a lot simpler. It's a great product but I'm glad I didn't pay the full £100 price I've seen elsewhere.

    Good quality radio

    Good quality radio with high quality sound. Very well put together too. My only gripe is the controls. They are semi touchscreen button and quite small so difficult to press when I haven't got my glasses on. Won't be a problem for most people but if you use it as a bedside radio like me then it can be a little annoying when you have just woken up.

    Looks great but controls aren't the best

    The Monty looks really great... Wooden case is the main selling point and is good enough that I can forgive some the other shortcomings. Sound quality is pretty good... it's not as bassy as some Bluetooth speakers but definitely better than your average clock radio

    My only complaint is the buttons which are a bit too fiddley. All the main buttons are located either side of the screen which means you cant' see what you're doing when you press them (or at least I can't). Would be better if they were located underneath the screen instead.

    Setup takes a while but all clearly explained in the manual... just a case of going through all the steps
    Screen brightness automatically dims so it's not too bright in the dark... good if you're using it as a bedside radio

    Excellent sound

    The only reason I have rated this 4 stars is that I have yet to fully explore the extra features like Bluetooth. Its size makes it ideally suited to the kitchen and I am really enjoying listening to music while I cook. Had a query about the product before purchasing and Ligo couldn't have been more helpful. Excellent service.

    Sound quality is well above average

    Bought when my knackered old radio finally gave out. Well built and reasonably intuitive. I don't really like touch screens but the promise of good sound quality swayed me towards the Monty. As I expected, the controls are a little bit fiddly, but I've managed to get the hang of them. The sound quality is excellent though and overall I am pleased with my purchase.

    Lovely portable radio!

    Treated myself to a Monty after reading so many good reviews. Definitely have to agree with them- it looks great!
