If there is one thing Tivoli knows about, it’s radio, after all their original Model One redefined table top radio as we know it. That said, there’s no such thing as perfection and with this new batch of releases Tivoli has tweaked its two leading products and expanded its audio pedigree into other related areas.
First off, the legendary vintage looking Tivoli Audio Model One BT has become Bluetoothed allowing it to talk wirelessly to any of your compatible music devices. With an 8 metre range and a pairing capacity of up to 8 devices, the Audio Model One BT, with its chunky tuner and front speaker will turn a table into a conversation piece. £199.
Next up is the Model One’s posher cousin the Tivoli Audio PAL BT. All sleek and trendy, this tried and tested rechargeable portable radio has also been given the Bluetooth treatment, so wireless streaming and an all weather case to boot. £239.
In a slight departure from its now familiar range, Tivoli has created the Audio BluCon a standalone bluetooth receiver which will bring wireless streaming audio to any device equipped with an auxiliary input. £99
With the Audio Radio Silenz Tivoli has crossed over into headphone territory, maintaining its reputation for a great build and high quality sonics. This is a pair of over ear phones that are clearly related to the Model One’s familiar wood finish, with their own tidy set of wooden veneer trims over the ear pieces. Coming in three colours, ash, walnut and cherry, these active noise cancelling phones also carry a muting button so you can hear someone talking to you if you need to. A very nice touch.
Lastly, the free to download Radio App contains a 100 music stations and 10 categorised genres specially chosen by Tivoli from suggestions from its online community. Available from the App Store and Google Play.
