What the designers say
“It’s not just a radio, it’s your audio entertainment, so of course it should be able to do more. Retro offers Digital & FM Radio along with an Apple charge and play dock, for comprehensive playback"
- Jonathan Merricks CEO & Creative Director
The VQ Retro Radio is designed with a vintage look but features all the modern functionality you could possibly need.
The VQ Retro Radio features DAB and DAB+ so you can listen to your favourite digital stations in the UK or across Europe (depending on regional coverage). No digital coverage, no problem, simply switch to FM radio. Time for your own music, access your library via the Lightning dock for iPod or iPhone or the 3.5mm aux input to connect any other audio device.
Retro is born in Britain with expert design & engineering at our studios in the Hampshire countryside.
