I know you ladies are fab at finding items and a bargain, so thought I'd ask here.

DD's birthday is coming up soon and she'd like a radio - I'm thinking we need something that is DAB but a bit funky and if it could dock her I-pod too that would be a bonus.

Budget at around £100 but less is better grin Am I asking for the impossible?

Not sure what it means by 30 pin dock but I like these.

Don't think it docks an iPod.

Those big Viewquest radios are usually a lot more money, I'd check that they've got up to date connections.

I will leave the techy bits to DH. Thanks

I quite like this one

Ha ha looked at the links - great minds think alike. DH has said no as he's never heard of the brand... Might just leave it for him to sort!

Haha I liked them myself but I must admit I've never heard of the brand either. If there was enough positive reviews though I'd be prepared to go for it. I hope you can find something suitable.

Never heard of Viewquest? Really?

I have a viewquest in the kitchen and love it. I think they are a really highly recognised DAB brand. My radio model had a little doc for my phone and looks terrific in my kitchen. I have this one in mustard www.myvq.co.uk/shop/retro.html
I've just bought another for a gift after it was much admired by a guest.
I just spotted that they have a giveaway on their Twitter which closes tomorrow. Might be worth a go?

Nope I haven't heard of them why would I make it up? but they seem to have good reviews.

Thanks all.
