    Sublime!

    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 Good
    +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!

    The Bad
    -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!

    Great little radio

    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.

    Lovely portable radio!

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