Product Description

While it may be one of the smallest DAB radios on the market, the VQ Retro Mini has risen to become one of the most popular choices around. Despite its modest size, the Retro Mini provides surprisingly impressive sound quality from a relatively small speaker. It also has the looks to match, living up to the Retro name with a handsome leatherette case in a wide range of different colours. Plus, with a price to match its deceptive size, there’s really no reason not to indulge yourself!

Retro design

True to its name, the VQ Retro Mini comes with a stylish vintage design that wouldn’t look out of place in any Eighties movie. Boasting a sleek matte cream front panel with a classic radio look, it is the perfect option for those looking to add a little retro flair to their home. In addition, the smart leatherette casing is available in an enormous range of colours and patterns, including offerings from top designers like Emma Bridgewater and Laura Ashley. Whatever your own personal style, you can be sure you’ll find a VQ Retro Mini that suits you to a tee.

Enjoy DAB & FM radio in perfect clarity

Despite its appearance, the VQ Retro Mini is far from an outdated radio. In fact, quite the opposite- thanks to the latest audio technology, it can comfortably hold its own against much larger models. A 5W speaker driver delivers more powerful sound than you might expect, and both music and talk radio come through beautifully.

Bluetooth connectivity

The VQ Retro Mini is much more than just a DAB radio. Thanks to Bluetooth connectivity, you can easily connect up your smartphone, tablet, or even your laptop to enjoy all your favourite audio content. Whether it’s Spotify playlists or podcasts, there’s an endless amount of content to discover. What’s more, since it’s all wireless, you can switch up your listening without leaving the comfort of your seat.

Fully portable listening

Thanks to its small size, the VQ Retro Mini can be slotted in just about anywhere around your home. What’s more, as you may have guessed from the carry handle on the top, the Retro Mini is also fully portable. Just pop 4xAA batteries in the back, and you can take your DAB radio on the go. The robust antenna does a stellar job of picking up a reliable signal

60 different preset options

For added ease of use, the VQ Retro Mini includes 60 preset options to fill with all your favourite stations. That way, you can instantly tune in to your preferred programmes the moment you switch the radio on. Setting the presets is as simple as holding down a button!

    Very good radio...

    My previous radio conked out on me so I had a look for a new one. Old one was only FM so I thought maybe it was time to make the jump to digital. After doing a bit of research I came across the VQ retro mini. It’s quite cheap so I didn’t know if i should expect a lot from it. But other reviewers seem to rate it so I thought I would give it a shot.

    As a design statement alone it’s well worth it. It is very solidly put together, unlike some other radios I’ve owned in the past. A decent bit of weight to it but not enough to stop you carrying it around easily. I’m a big fan of the 80s design, this was one of the things that swayed it for me. The feet on the bottom are nice and sturdy too so its less likely to get bumped over.

    It’s a bluetooth speaker as well… for me that made it great value for money because it does two things. You can listen to the radio and use it as a radio alarm, but it’s also easy to play your own music through the speaker too. Lots of choice with digital radio so I’ve not had much need for the bluetooth yet but I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of it in the long run.

    +Very good sound from a small radio, my old one was a fair bit bigger than this and the retro mini sounds a lot better
    +Well designed, solid case and looks very nice on my bedside table
    +Bluetooth makes it even better value for money

    -No battery pack option- it takes rechargeable AAs which are technically cheaper than a battery pack would be (VQ ones seem to be £20-25) but being able to plug the radio straight into the mains would be much more convenient

    Fantastic little radio!

    Looks great on my kitchen worktop and the sound is really good! Love the blue tooth connection as well! Instructions were clear and simple.

    Great for bluetooth

    Good as a digital radio but even better is the bluetooth mode. Really easy to pair up, only takes about 5 seconds or so and holds a very strong connection with my iPhone. Definitely recommend!

    Love it!

    It's so pretty!! Sounds great and super easy to use. It's got bluetooth as well so it's even better value for money. My only issue is the size of the print in the manual which I found hard to read even with my glasses but the radio was easy enough to set up without them. I love it!
