    “One of the best-looking radios we’ve seen for the money. Christie is a very capable and very likeable digital radio. We imagine plenty of people will also be seduced by the good looks.”

    – What HiFi

    “Christie has a stunning enamel front fascia, and of course is wrapped in gorgeous leatherette available in a range of colours. It’s not just a pretty face though, it’s got some pretty clever innards.”

    – Little Stuff

    “The Christie is one of VQ’s most adorable digital radios with a retro look I’m loving. It’s stylish design and compact size doesn’t stop it having an almighty sound too.”

    – The Prosecco Diaries

    “Cutting a retro dash the Christie is available in a dozen colourful finishes with a good-quality enamel fascia. While some products have orientation sensing displays VQ go one step further with this radio, with the entire display and control panel rotating 90 degrees allowing you to place the radio vertically or horizontally. Christie delivers distinctive retro styling and cutting-edge DAB & Bluetooth technology”

    – HiFi Choice

It also has Bluetooth / NFC connectivity for phones and tablets to stream. There’s also a USB charge port and headphone socket. With a dual alarm as well Christie has all bases covered.”
