After introducing the colour range to the original Retro Radio and much customer feedback View Quest introduces the Retro ‘Wi-Fi’. This has Wi-Fi capability giving you an even wider range of radio stations worldwide.
View Quest have added an information centre where you can receive accurate weather forecasts from your location or choose a location from the list provided and you can also keep up to date and get the s about the stock market.
This design comes in two colours 'Black with Grey' front and 'Grey with Cream' front, features a volume and tuning dial giving you even more control for selecting your favourite station or adjusting the volume. Its sleek surround and carry handle is still wrapped in the same high quality leather. It is a fully functional DAB/FM and now Wi-Fi radio.
The Retro Wi-Fi is compatible with the iPhone and iPods that use the 30 pin connector, has an Aux in for other audio sources, 10 presets for DAB/FM, also Wi-Fi for connecting to radio stations on the internet and an auto scan function to make searching for your favourite radio shows even easier. The additional elegant volume/tuning dial also gives you hands on tuning and volume control.
It has a redesigned back lit LCD display screen, 2 x 10 W speakers giving ample volume of sound and has a battery life of 15 hours.

That said, the sound quality is OK and the device looks good.
BUT - Under no circumstances buy this radio if you want internet radio. I didn't read either the blurb or the reviews carefully enough. Mea culpa, caveat emptor.
There is no remote. This is an ABSOLUTELY FUNDAMENTAL REQUIREMENT for an internet radio and both the remote and the radio must have presets. THIS RADIO DOES NOT HAVE PRESETS FOR INTERNET STATIONS. This makes it essentially useless.
I don't have an ipod and I live in France where there is no DAB (the French think it is very old tech) and quite frankly French FM radio is pretty hopeless.
So if you live in the UK I suppose this is a pretty good radio if you listen to DAB and FM. But quite frankly there are thousands of radios that perform well there. I have a very nice PURE Dab radio which unfortunately is no good to me out here and which I would recommend above the View Quest.
