Colour Name: grey
Retro design and a stylish leather finish meet modern technology in the ViewQuest Retro WiFi/DAB+/FM radio.
After introducing the new colour range to the original Retro Radio and much customer feedback View Quest are proud to introduce the new Retro ‘WIFI’. The new addition to the series now has WIFI capability giving you an even wider range of radio stations worldwide.
View Quest have added an information centre where you can receive the latest weather forecasts from your current location or choose a location from the list provided and you can also keep up to date and get the latest news about the stock market.
The new design comes in two colours 'Black with Grey' front and 'Grey with Cream' front, features a stylish 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 encasing it in style and luxury, something of a design piece as well as a fully functional DAB/FM and now WIFI radio.
The Retro WIFI is compatible with the iPhone and latest iPods, has an AUX in for other audio sources, 10 presets for DAB/FM, also WIFI 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 Watt speakers giving ample volume of sound and has a battery life of 15 hours.See all Product Description

That said, the sound quality is OK and the device looks good.
Nice to look at.
Slide in/out iPod dock
Unable to preset DAB channels
Very slow response when changing channels
Slow to connect to DAB or Wifi
Poor sound quality
No bass/treble controls
Volume button has little sensitivity.
Design - the smart leather surround is let down by the cheap plastic fascia and buttons.
Functions - once you change function or radio channel it seems to take an age to start working which is really frustrating.
Sound - the sound quality is very poor and even on its lowest setting it's quite loud.
Overall - it's more style over substance and View Quest have produced a real turkey. Avoid!
I returned mine straight away and replaced it with a Pure Contour 100Di which is superb and a far superior product.
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.
