Expert review

DAB radios from top brands can often come at quite a premium, but this incredibly affordable little number from VQ bucks that trend. It’s a truly portable radio that’s so tiny it’s easily graspable in the hand. Plus it offers surprising features that belie its price, including stylish finishes, a telescopic aerial and the ability to store a massive 60 presets. But is there a catch, or should you snap it up fast? Find out if the sound quality is worth it in our expert review.

What's included:
