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

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!

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.

Gorgeous DAB radio with great sound quality and super simple to set up. Even the packaging feels like it has been put together with love. Instructions are nice and simple but cover everything you need to know. Performs exactly as promised and paired up easily with my iPhone via Bluetooth. The sound quality with Bluetooth is also fab. I did a lot of research before buying the Monty and it all paid off as I'm really happy with my choice!

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.

We bought this VQ Monty to replace a knackered DAB radio in our kitchen and so far have been very pleased with our purchase. It looks and fees like a quality made product and sits very stylishly in our kitchen. Sound quality is excellent for its singular 10w speaker - crystal clear even at higher volumes retaining clarity and impressive bass for such a compact unit. Ideal for when the extractor fan is on or the kettle or the washing machine, well you catch my drift.. is easy to use and most importantly the sound quality and volume are superb for such a compact unit. Finish and design are spot on, controls feel nice and the screen is very easy to read.
Very easy to use and connecting via Bluetooth caused no issues and have been surprised by how good the range is - left my phone in my pocket by accident and it was still streaming clearly after I'd made it all the way upstairs. We did consider some of the pricier models but glad we picked this in the end. If you're looking for a top notch kitchen radio that looks good and has excellent sound then I would highly recommend the VQ Monty!

Normally I'm a little bit suspicious of any products that claim to be made of "wood". Usually it's just wood coloured plastic! But the Monty really is made from wood, you can even feel the grain of it when you touch it. The fabric on the front is also nice quality (although it is a little bit thin) and the feet are made out of cork.
The sound is really great quality, loud enough to be heard over a party, which you wouldn't expect from a radio of this size. I also love the fact that you can listen to your own music via Bluetooth as well. It was really easy to sync up both by iPad and my phone.
Wholeheartedly recommend the Monty, other brands take note. This is how you put a decent radio together!

Pros: Sound quality is great, it can take a battery pack as well as mains so I can move it around the house, it has separate alarms for weekdays and weekends, includes Bluetooth, has a USB chargeing port, looks really nice
Cons: Changing modes and stations takes quire a few clicks

If you’re looking for a stylish and compact digital radio with good sound quality, then the VQ Monty is a great choice. It looks very stylish in our kitchen and is feature packed with FM/DAB/DAB+ radio and Bluetooth as well as aux-in. It might lack wifi/internet radio but on the rare occasions that I want to do this I can link up my smartphone via Bluetooth.
The Monty doesn’t have any serious flaws, though some people might find the lack of dedicated preset buttons inconvenient. Overall an excellent product that I highly recommend. Speed of delivery and service from ligo was impeccable.

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.
