Tivoli Audio in the news
BOSTON, MA — Tivoli Audio re-introduces its all-in-one Music System and classic Model One table radio in new finishes featuring exotic and decorative hardwoods. The Music System, a full-featured tabletop music system in high fidelity stereo sound, is now available in wenge (pronounced “venga”), a unique finish characterized by its distinct dark brown color and tightly spaced grain. The new wenge finish is accented by a bronze faceplate and dark brown knobs. The Model One, highly acclaimed table radio, will also be available in the new wenge finish with a bronze faceplate. “It has been Tivoli Audio’s trademark to bring to market high performance audio products that look as good as they sound,” says Tom DeVesto, Tivoli Audio’s Chairman and CEO. “We have always introduced our products in high quality, furniture grade woods, decorative finishes, and colors to fit perfectly into any room décor.” The Tivoli Audio Music System features a wide array of easy-to-use, convenient features, including a built-in slot-load CD player, AM/FM radio, built-in powered subwoofer and amplifier, and digital clock with battery backup and dual alarms. The single-slot CD player has shuffle and repeat functions, and is compatible with all popular music formats, including CD, MP3, WMA, CD-R, and CD-RW. Both AM and FM antennas are included for optimum radio reception, and buttons on the front enable pre-setting of six favorite AM and FM radio stations. A 32-character, easy-to-read, automatically adjustable lighted display shows CD/MP3 text or Radio Data System (RDS) information, where available. Whatever the sound source, either CD or radio, the Tivoli Audio Music System offers full and expansive, high-fidelity stereo sound via its two incorporated speakers with SpacePhaseTM equalization choices between mono, stereo and wide mode, while a built-in, down-firing 5” magnetically-shielded powered subwoofer adds a rich, musical bass. The subwoofer also has a control for volume. The unit also features a bass reflex design for extended bass response, and separate amps for maximum power efficiency. It offers full-range, long-throw 3” drivers, and comes with a credit card size remote. The digital clock functionalities of the Tivoli Audio Music System are equally abundant, and include a calendar. Dual alarms can be set for wake-up to AM, FM, CD, or tone, and a 7-minute snooze function lets users grab a few extra minutes before being reawakened. In addition, a fixed sleep timer automatically turns off the music after a 20-munite time period and has a push-button re-set feature; and the time is always visible on the unit’s large, light blue dot-matrix display. For extra sleep comfort, the display light has a built-in light sensor to automatically diminish the light in darkness. The Model One is Tivoli Audio’s original signature product being its first table radio in furniture-grade cabinets accented by colored faceplates. The new wenge tropical hardwood is beautifully set off by a bronze faceplate. The Model One pulls in more listenable FM stations than any other table radio. Its mono AM/FM radio features three analog knobs for power, volume and tuning. The Model One’s AC power supply is conveniently built-in so that no separate “wall brick” is necessary and a 12-volt jack on the back makes it possible to play in a vehicle or even on a boat. Extra add-on features include an auxiliary input for an external program source, such as an iPod or CD player, and outputs for both tape recording and headphones. The Model One Table Radio uses a state-of-the-art discrete-component FM tuner technology originally developed for cell phones and never before used in an FM radio, results in more listenable stations. The 5:1 gear ratio tuning dial creates smaller and more precise movements of the actual tuning mechanisms and an amber LED indicator light glows brightly when the station is tuned on center. The new Music System units in Wenge/Bronze will retail for $999.99, the High Gloss Dark Walnut/Bronze Music System will retail for $1199.99 and the Model One in Wenge will retail for $119.99. All models will be sold nationwide, starting in end of year 2007, at distinctive retail outlets or direct by calling toll-free to 877-297-9479 or online at www.tivoliaudio.com.
