Product Description

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.


Get onboard with the digital revolution

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.


Beautiful design with natural-grain wood casing

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.


Retro style meets modern connectivity

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.


Take your Monty on the go with the optional battery pack

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.

    Sublime!

    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 Good
    +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!

    The Bad
    -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!

    Highly recommend

    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!

    Sounds amazing!

    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!

    Stylish, compact digital radio with good sound quality

    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.
