The VQ Lark is a Digital Radio and Bluetooth Speaker designed to bring a little more sophistication and superior sound quality to your bedside with true stereo sound and a passive bass radiator beneath a modern minimalist aesthetic.

What the designers say

“Someone once said to us, people don’t care about their bedside radio it’s just there to wake them up. You’ll be pleased to know, we didn’t listen to them – we listened to you. We know people want to go to sleep and wake up happy with premium design and amazing design. We’ve broken the mould with Lark; stereo sound, a passive bass radiator, digital radio & Bluetooth, premium materials and an intelligent screen with auto-dimming and a wide viewing angle. We believe Lark is always a great start to your day.”

- Jonathan Merricks CEO & Creative Director

Once you’ve found a favourite station you can save it to one of two convenient quick recall buttons or the full menu of 60 available presets. These presets can be used to switch between your favourite stations quickly or used within the alarm function.

Best of all Lark features two USB ports which means you can charge up your device(s) as you stream, saving on precious beside plug sockets.

No matter what you listen to it will sound fantastic thanks to the dual ultra-wide full range 3W stereo speakers and an integrated passive radiator for enhanced sound quality. Your acoustic experience can be further tailored thanks to the MyEQ function with genre specific equaliser settings or independent bass and treble controls.
