View Quest Retro 1
New £100 portable features leather finish, DAB/FM tuner and iPod/iPhone dock

Just announced by View Quest is the Retro 1, combining DAB/FM radio with stereo speakers, an iPod/iPhone dock and – as the name suggests – retro styling complete with a leather finish.

The company says that the £100 radio's 'design and flair really put it into a class of its own' and, as well as its ten-preset tuner and 2x1.5W amplification, the Retro 1 also has an auxiliary input for other sources.

It's powered by batteries, with a 15-hour life, and both the main case and the carrying handle are finished in leather.

Product manager Chris Mole says that 'we wanted something retro without simply being a reproduction, retro is very cool but it had to have a View Quest spin on it.'

The Retro 1 is now available from Play.com.
