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 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!
-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!

The Q must stand for "QUALITY", because that's exactly what the Monty is! I had planned on mostly using it in the bathroom. But with so many features I've found that I take it all around the house with me, especially since the sound is such high quality. My only wish is that I'd replaced my old radio with a Monty sooner!

We had already bought a similarly priced DAB radio from Sainsburys, but ended up returning it because the sound quality was awful. We did our research this time around to make sure we actually got our money's worth. We eventually settled on the Monty and can highly recommend it.
The sound quality is superb, and it has a lot more depth than other DAB radios I've heard. The controls aren't as complicated as some other reviews online suggest, they just take a bit of getting used to but are easy to master. There are also a lot of extra features like Bluetooth, alarm, equaliser settings and a USB charging port.
You can set a sleep timer and use it off the mains or a battery, all in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Bought when my knackered old radio finally gave out. Well built and reasonably intuitive. I don't really like touch screens but the promise of good sound quality swayed me towards the Monty. As I expected, the controls are a little bit fiddly, but I've managed to get the hang of them. The sound quality is excellent though and overall I am pleased with my purchase.

Love the Monty. Lovely warm sound, simple controls, and it's a portable Bluetooth speaker too!

Perfect! Love listening to the radio again. Good sound for voices and music and doesn't need to be turned up too loud for it to fill a room. Haven't had a reason to push it all the way up to 11 so I can't comment on how it performs at higher levels.

Purchased as a present for myself and I am very impressed. Worth every penny.

An excellent radio. I am very happy with my purchase. My only issue was with the lack of a complete user manual. Even after looking online I could only find a quick start guide. But I phoned up Ligo and they were very helpful in answering my questions. If they could put a full manual together for future customers that woud be great.

Great little radio, plenty of presets. Solid sound given the size of the speaker. Love that it's portable with the battery, which is why I bought it.

Treated myself to a Monty after reading so many good reviews. Definitely have to agree with them- it looks great!
