What the designers say
“Monty is beautiful, that’s a given, being able to work with real wood and other premium materials means you’re always going to end up with a gorgeous product. However, what we’re most proud of is having Monty as our first product to feature Analogue Sound Processing (ASP), which is our own patented feature.
We can’t give too much away, but ASP is not just about technology with the speaker it’s about understanding the relationships between the physical materials used and tuning these to achieve sound quality well beyond the norm. The best way to explain it is the difference between digital recordings and vinyl, with vinyl you have a warm and richness of tone that simply can’t be replicated with digital trickery and that quality of sound is at the heart of ASP.”
- Jonathan Merricks CEO & Creative Director
The VQ Monty is a beautifully modern styled DAB/DAB+ digital radio and Bluetooth speaker featuring a premium real wood case in a choice of finishes.
Monty features comprehensive connectivity with DAB/DAB+ Digital Radio alongside traditional analogue FM reception, so listen to any of your favourite stations and save them to one of sixty presets. If you’re yet to try digital radio now is the time, with better coverage and more stations than ever before, you might find that what you always thought was your favourite station isn’t any more. On digital radio finding new stations to try couldn’t be easier with the auto scan to find all your available stations and a simple alphabetical list to scroll through.
Your Monty is further enhanced with wireless Bluetooth connectivity enabling you to connect a phone, tablet or any other smart device and stream music from your own collection or services such as; Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify. A traditional 3.5mm aux-in is included if you prefer a hard wired connection. Monty also features a USB port which allows you to charge your phone/tablet as you stream or at any other time.
No matter what you choose to listen to it will sound fantastic thanks to the combination of the acoustically designed real wood case and a 10W ultra-wide full range stereo speaker. Those who like a little more bass or wish to tinker with the treble can do so using the full functional EQ which offers a range of presets and the personalised MyEQ settings. Monty also features true innovation with the inclusion of Analogue Signal Processing (ASP) a technical evolution to deliver enhanced sound with a rich tone and no radio interference.
Monty is a treat for the eyes as well as the ears, a design icon of the future, blending a range of premium materials, including real wood. Monty would grace any home with a sense of understated contemporary style.
Monty is born in Britain with expert design & engineering at our studios in the Hampshire countryside.
