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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

• Stylish design
• Fantastic sound
• 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”.

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.

After having lots of hassle with other digital radios in the past, I thought that I’d put some proper research into my purchase this time. I spent a long time looking at reviews across the web, and the VQ Monty seemed to get a good rep from actual users and not just paid reviewers. It was between this and the Pure Evoke H3 but I ended up choosing the Monty. It’s slightly cheaper and I felt the design looked a bit nicer.
Having spent a few weeks living with the Monty now i think I have a pretty good grasp of it. Here are the good and bad points I have come across:
+The sound quality is excellent, really clear and bright across lots of different music genres
+Very solidly put together, a lot of the time you find that products with a “wood” casing are just textured plastic but the Monty really is made from wood about an inch and a pinch thick.
+Bluetooth so you can play your own music as well- also has a jack for a bog standard 3.5mm cable on the back (I use this for playing music off an original iPod)
+Design is absolutely fantastic, really modern and the wood finish is beautiful. Mark my words- it will take pride of place in your home!
-No volume wheel. A small flaw but these things matter! Turning the volume up or down means repeatedly pressing a small button on the side of the screen until it gets to what you want.
-Buttons are quite fiddly at first but you do get used to them
-No preset buttons, you have to scroll through a menu to find them so might as well just find the station you’re looking for by hand
Delivery was very fast and staff were friendly and helpful when I phoned up to place my order. Thank you liGo, you’ve earned a repeat customer!

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!
