View Quest Retro 1

 

More than talented enough to warrant a place at the top table

Neat design ; good spec ; enthusiastic, up-and-at-’em attitude

Nasty plastics ; tiny display ; could retrieve more fine detail

VQ Retro WiFi review

  (Rating Hidden)

On the surface, the ViewQuest Retro Wi-Fi DAB radio has it all, with digital and internet access as well as a dock for your iPhone. It's certainly taken on a lot, but can it deliver on all these features? We've tuned in and reviewed it: find out what...

View Quest - Retro 1

 

What is it with DAB radio manufacturers and their love of nostalgia? For some reason, they all hark back to the days of the old Roberts kitchen radios - solid rectangular boxes with booming sound - ...

VQ Retro Mk II Portable DAB+/FM Bluetooth Clock Radio - Cream

VQ Monty Portable DAB+/FM Retro Bluetooth Clock Radio - Oak

 

Doesn't take up a lot of room except in terms of acoustics which fill a room with clear speech and depth in the music.

The documentation from VQ, included with the radio, says you can download a complete radio manual from the manufacturer's website. You can't! According to their customer services, such a manual does not exist and isn't planned to exist. Thanks a lot VQ.

sound quality is excellent

push button controls could be more precise in operation and larger making them easier to use.
