Guest Post – The Interiorator on the MUSIC SYSTEM THREE

Below is a blog post originally written for INTERIORATOR 
Read the original post here, hear the Spotify playlist here, and if you are in the Netherlands you could win your own Music System Three+!

Sa-WEET! I unbox my new Tivoli Music System Three+, put it on the table and think to myself: this baby will be going places!

I’ve been big fan of Tivoli Audio ever since I got to try the Tivoli PAL BT last summer. It has been my faithful travel companion ever since and has seen many, many hotel rooms. And so you can imagine I was definitely looking forward to using this new hifi-system from The Original Radio Company. I haven’t owned a car for a few years now (taking the train is sooo much better for the environment), I’m not really familiar with the latest technological developments in the radio industry.

In my kitchen, the Tivoli Music System Three+ looks great and sounds even better.

In my kitchen, the Tivoli Music System Three+ looks great and sounds even better.

Which makes my surprise even bigger when I turn on the tuner and instantly hear music that is crystal clear. I press the ‘+’ button, fully expecting to hear a few seconds of annoying static before I find the next radio station in the air waves. But no, every station starts instantly and they’re all there, stored automatically. I even find a few I haven’t heard of before! It turns out that this is my first experience with DAB+ digital radio. I take the Three+ to the kitchen and prepare dinner as I listen to Radio 10 Gold. I like the comfort of an oldies station from time to time, so sue me.

It’s a balmy night and so my husband and I decide to eat outside on our balcony. We take the Tivoli outside and as the summer night city lies beneath us we take turns playing our favorite songs on Spotify. All we have to do is activate Bluetooth, pick a song and start belting. A night to remember, if I say so myself.

And so here I am now, writing the gripping saga that is today’s blogpost. The Tivoli stands behind me on the floor (do you like the new white wall to wall Desso carpeting by the way?) and as it plays dance music from KCRW.com,after many years still my one-stop destination for eclectic internet radio. I spend some time thinking about the final paragraph. And this is what I decide on:

The Tivoli Music System Three+ is definitely worthy of the Interiorator seal of approval – it’s an amazingly versatile music machine that looks great and sounds great wherever you want to use it’. It is available in white, black and a limited copper edition. With the optional wooden cabinet in walnut, cherry, Piano white or black ash you can customize your Tivoli to your heart’s content.

New Playlist Added – Yacht Rock

Smooth vocals, steamy sax solos, and oh those voices. We’re talking Soft Rock here, and not just any soft rock, YACHT ROCK.

This southern California based breed of Soft Rock makes our engineer, Sam, nice and relaxed after a long day. Why does he love Yacht Rock so much that he made his mix based around it? Nautical stripes, captain hats, classic walrus mustaches, and harbor themed music videos. So many harmonies it’s impossible to not smile.

Sail towards the sunset with Sam and his Yacht Rock playlist. He suggests sipping on the following Mai Thai recipe while kicking back and listening on the MUSIC SYSTEM THREE.



Sam’s Mai Tai Recipe
  • 1.5 oz dark rum
  • 1.5 oz amber rum
  • 3/4 oz orange curacao
  • just over 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • just over 1 oz orgeat syrup
  • Dash of grenadine

In a shaker combine all ingredients over ice. Shake vigorously and garnish with orange slice and paper umbrella.

Summertime with the MUSIC SYSTEM THREE

Have you had an opportunity to check out or newest radio yet – the MUSIC SYSTEM THREE? The Tivoli Audio team and a few of our friends have been using the system and are sharing their summer experiences.

We’ve taken it on our deck, used it in the kitchen, brought it to cookouts, and camping. It’s been our computer speakers in our offices and then strapped to a Vespa and taken to the beach, lake, and pool. It outlasts many of our cell phone batteries’ streaming capabilities due to its 21-hour playback life.


It’s a proven to be a favorite amongst our beer snobs when they hit the end of their workday. (Or maybe we all like the MUSIC SYSTEM THREE and beer equally.)


Sometimes we’ll stream one of our coworker’s Spotify playlists they created for the Tivoli Audio Spotify account or listen to one of the 100 stations on the Tivoli Radio App. There is always the option of listening to a favorite local radio station as well.


If you want the “classic Tivoli wood look” you can wrap it in a wooden cabinet and still it is easily moved from place to place.

Basically the MUSIC SYSTEM THREE is the everything you need, all encompassing, do-it-all system of your dreams. OH YEAH, it sounds good to boot!

The Model One and the Model Twenty-One, by Henry Kloss.

With Roots Like These

Tivoli Audio was lucky enough to have Henry Kloss as a co-founder when it first started off. Henry was a well know audio engineer who worked for many of the Boston based audio companies that helped advance hi-fi technologies starting in the 1950′s.

For Tivoli Audio he developed the Model One table radio. Similar to some of the radios he designed while at KLH, like the Model Twenty-One.

It’s no wonder this small unit sounds so big and impressive. 50 years of audio engineering led to our timeless table top, the Model One. The team at Tivoli Audio has been happy to carry on his tradition for high-quality and well designed audio equipment.

Warm up next to the Tivoli Audio PAL+ Bluetooth this holiday season

Winter is coming and we suggest warming up with the PAL+ Bluetooth this season.

This little guy loves to get charged up and travel the world with you, but during these colder months the indoors might be calling your name. The PAL+ Bluetooth is perfect around the home, too. Keep it close while you work in the kitchen making holiday treats. Stay up late listening to your local news station for the weather report to announce snow. Feel free to take it outside and listen to the radio for up to 16 hours while you build your snowman or igloo. The PAL+ Bluetooth will last due to its built in battery. Warm up with an impromptu dance party by streaming your favorite playlist via the Bluetooth connection. And finally curl up next to the fire with your new PAL and relax knowing this future proof little radio will be with you for years to come thanks to its DAB+ capabilities.

It might be a long winter. Stay warm with the PAL+ Bluetooth.
