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

We bought the Monty as a replacement for a regular DAB radio in our kitchen. It looks wonderful, and fits in perfectly with our country kitchen. It's very easy to use and the sound quality is magnificent from such a small unit. Beautifully designed and finished, controls are pleasant to the touch and the screen is very clear and easy to read.

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.

The Q must stand for "QUALITY", because that's exactly what the Monty is! I had planned on mostly using it in the bathroom. But with so many features I've found that I take it all around the house with me, especially since the sound is such high quality. My only wish is that I'd replaced my old radio with a Monty sooner!

We had already bought a similarly priced DAB radio from Sainsburys, but ended up returning it because the sound quality was awful. We did our research this time around to make sure we actually got our money's worth. We eventually settled on the Monty and can highly recommend it.
The sound quality is superb, and it has a lot more depth than other DAB radios I've heard. The controls aren't as complicated as some other reviews online suggest, they just take a bit of getting used to but are easy to master. There are also a lot of extra features like Bluetooth, alarm, equaliser settings and a USB charging port.
You can set a sleep timer and use it off the mains or a battery, all in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase.

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.

Love the Monty. Lovely warm sound, simple controls, and it's a portable Bluetooth speaker too!

Perfect! Love listening to the radio again. Good sound for voices and music and doesn't need to be turned up too loud for it to fill a room. Haven't had a reason to push it all the way up to 11 so I can't comment on how it performs at higher levels.

Purchased as a present for myself and I am very impressed. Worth every penny.

An excellent radio. I am very happy with my purchase. My only issue was with the lack of a complete user manual. Even after looking online I could only find a quick start guide. But I phoned up Ligo and they were very helpful in answering my questions. If they could put a full manual together for future customers that woud be great.
