Having previously owned both a PAL and a couple of Songbooks, I knew I could rely on Tivoli for a quality system that wasn't intended for portable use.
First of all, the system looks sharp. I needed something that sounded good but didn't take up too much space in my kitchen. It's almost too nice for such a small space- it would function just fine in a small to medium sized living room or bedroom.
For music listening, it sounds far superior to the portable radios I mentioned earlier, and I have no complaints about those units either. My lone complaint about the Model 10 has to do with the AM function. Unlike the portable units, the tone of AM (talk/sports) is a little muddled and bassy. Even when adjusting the unit to a flat EQ, it just doesn't have the sharp definition of a PAL.
However, this one complaint would not cause me to NOT recommend the Model 10. And all other features make it a vast improvement over the portable units too. The water resistant (not water proof) remote is a nice touch; I can switch channels with my wet, dish hands! I love this radio!
