    VQ Hepburn

    Bought the Hepburn because I wanted a radio that I could take out into the garden with me but also use in the house when the weather is rubbish. Seemed to offer the best of both and although it was a little bit more money than I’d planned to spend I went with it.

    I understand that there was an older model- this one is labelled “Mark 2”. Older one seems to have got a bit of stick from reviewers but I haven’t had any of the problems they did- must have fixed everything with this one! I've already had a lot of use out of it and I'm glad that I made the right decision with my purchase.

    +Sounds great, very rich and can be turned up loud without getting crackly
    +Love how it looks!
    +Super portable, lightweight without compromising on sound
    +Acts as a bluetooth speaker as well. This was what made me willing to spend a bit more on the Hepburn

    -Battery pack comes separate- it’s clearly designed to be portable so would make sense if it had a built in battery

    Other than that there’s not really any downsides to this radio. It does everything I want it to and saves on having a separate radio and bluetooth speaker. I would happily recommend the Hepburn. Ligo were very helpful as well and the delivery was very quick.

    Perfect kitchen radio!

    This was a great buy. Needed a new kitchen radio and wanted something that had bluetooth as well to reduce the amount of extra speakers we had floating about the house. The sound is excellent, the reception seems to be better than the radio it replaced (an ancient Pure) and love the way it looks. Very happy and would recommend!

    Top marks

    The good:
    This sounds very good with impressive clarity from DAB, bluetooth or via the aux input. Tuning both DAB and FM is very straightforward unlike some other machines like this I have tried. Bluetooth pairing is similarly painless. The sound fills the room (with the volume cranked up a bit) in a way that you could easily mistake for speakers at least double its size in the room somewhere. For such a compact unit the sound really is quite impressive. I had been considering the equivalent from Roberts, which is £80 more expensive and so glad that I opted for this in the end.

    The bad:
    I would say that the only downside is setting the alarm. Press this, twice, turn the knob in just the right way, press again..., no, it's timed out, you messed it up and you have to start again. Repeat. Then repeat again. I gave up in the end...

    A superb radio.

    A superb radio. I'm very impressed with the sound quality, which is much better than my previous Pure Evoke radio. The reception is very reliable as well. My only issue is the android app, which I haven't been able to get to work with the radio yet.

    Really glad that I bought the Hepburn.

    Really glad that I bought the Hepburn. It lives in our kitchen and gets used every single day. The bluetooth feature is so handy since it means I don't have to take standalone bluetooth speakers around the house with me. Sound quality is good, easy to control, and a great price for what you get.

    Fab!

    Couldn't be happier with this. Such a classy radio! Sounds fab and is so easy to use. It also feels very well made. Great that it has Bluetooth as well as DAB. I would certainly recommend Ligo as they were so helpful when I needed to make a change to my order.

    Wonderful

    Replacement for an expensive old Roberts radio that was good at the time of purchase but struggled to get decent reception anymore. It's great not to have the radio cut out every time one of us walks across the room! I would heartily recommend this radio, it looks great, sounds great, and the reception is great. What more could you need?

    Love it!

    Needed a new radio for my kitchen and fell in love with the design of this one. Ligo staff were very helpful when I called them up for advice. Great sound, easy to use, looks great and my husband loves it too!
