BOSTON, MAFor those who want great sounding music at home or wherever they go, Tivoli Audio introduces the iSongBook, its newest music system with flip-down dock specifically made for the Apple iPod. The flip-down docking station will fit all iPod models and recharges the iPod when docked. The supplied remote control operates both the iPod and the iSongBook.
The new iSongBook features a highly sensitive digital AM/FM tuner for clear and precise reception with a 9k/10k switch for AM reception outside North America, as well as an adjustable, telescoping FM antenna and built-in AM antenna. Stations may be tuned manually or via 5 AM and 5 FM favorite station preset buttons with a “seek” function to automatically search for signals in any country around the world.

“The iSongBook is a traveling music system designed to turn an iPod into a full-bodied music system, unlike any other,” says Tom DeVesto, Chairman and CEO of Tivoli Audio. “We wanted to give consumers the same full and rich sound they’ve come to expect from Tivoli Audio products in a portable system that’s the best companion ever made for an iPod user.”

The white with silver faceplate design makes the iSongBook a perfect match for the iPod. It also features an “on demand” blue backlit LCD display that shows the station tuning as well as the digital clock, whose functions include alarm and 20-minute sleep timer that can be set to wake to an iPod as well as radio. Auxiliary input and stereo headphone output are positioned in the rear, complete with rubber covers to protect them from the elements, dust and dirt when not in use. It comes with a detachable matching secondary speaker for stereo sound, a 6’ audio cable for proper room positioning with rewind mechanism for cable management, and optional carry bag. The credit card sized remote controls the iPod when docked, as well as the iSongBook.

The iSongBook operates on standard AA alkaline batteries or NiMH/NiCad rechargeable batteries with the unit’s built-in charger; or by an AC adaptor or 12V power source. The iSongBook is sized to fit in a suitcase, briefcase, or backpack, measuring just 6-3/16” H x 11-1/16” W x 2-3/16” D for the clock/radio with the slave speaker.
The patent-pending iSongBook is housed in a sealed cabinet with rust-proof hardware for weather resistance. It’s suggested retail price is $329.99, and it will be sold nationwide, starting in late fall 2005, at distinctive retailers, or direct by calling toll-free to 877-297-9479 or online at www.tivoliaudio.com.
