Good sound quality
Value for money
Programming presets could be more straightforward
Standard batteries don't last long - will have to invest in some rechargeable ones to make use of portability

Love this DAB radio. Quick to set up, picks up stations well and works with your phone too which is even better!

Love my mini retro radio. Really simple to set up, tone is great and it gets great reception even without extending the aerial. Plus it looks great!

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 DAB radio. Nice design with a huge choice of colours to choose from. The most impressive thing about it is the sound quality. Excellent whether from the tuner or via Bluetooth. For the price I think it is excellent and would recommend!

This is an excellent little radio. Bought to use in the kitchen and looks very stylish. The sound quality is very good and considering purchasing another to have as a bedside clock and alarm. Very good value!

This is a great dab radio! Bought to use at my desk as I was fed up listening through laptop speakers. Nice and compact so is portable enough to move around. Sound is good and looks nice. Would recommend!

I bought this as a gift and the recipient loves it. She says that it is very well made and useful as a bedside alarm.

Bought as a Christmas present for mum. She loves it so much that I'm thinking of buying one for myself!
