View Quest Retro 1


More than talented enough to warrant a place at the top table

Neat design ; good spec ; enthusiastic, up-and-at-’em attitude

Nasty plastics ; tiny display ; could retrieve more fine detail

View Quest - Retro 1


What is it with DAB radio manufacturers and their love of nostalgia? For some reason, they all hark back to the days of the old Roberts kitchen radios - solid rectangular boxes with booming sound - ...

The Retro 1 design is actually half-nostalgia, half-modern - yet despite awkwardly small controls it works well as a kitchen/study DAB/FM/iPod player, with good sound quality and clear signals. BEST POINT: Easy tuning abilities WORST POINT: Control...

Fabulous Retro Radio


If looking for a reasonably priced radio then this really is the radio for you. Easy to use, looks great, lots of choice in colours, sound is very good, bargain!

Consumer review by:



Looks good, sounds good. Only slight concern is that the tray the ipod sits in feels a little flimsy so will need to be gentle with it to make sure it doesn't break. Otherwise, can't fault it, and it is just what I was looking for for my kitchen.
