With Tivoli Audio’s original Music System, our goal was to design a great-sounding, compact audio system. In the process, we ended up setting the benchmark for all-in-one, table top stereo systems. Many have tried to emulate it, but in the end, there is only one Music System... until now.

"A do-it-all single-room audio system with mind-blowing stereo" -The Financial Times

The Music System BT raises the bar by adding Bluetooth wireless technology. Stream your favorite music from any enabled smart phone, computer, or tablet to the Music System BT without cables. You’ll still find the Tivoli Audio engineering traits that put the Music System on the map... separate amplifiers, custom drivers, and adjustable, bottom-firing subwoofer. We also retained our popular SpacePhase™ Wide mode, which produces an expansive soundstage and the dual, rear-firing bass ports, which provide extended bass

Features of the original Music System remain on board, including FM RDS/AM/CD, easy-to-see large display, digital clock with battery back-up, full-function remote control, snooze, sleep timer, and dual independent alarms. Music System BT: Tivoli Audio’s all-in-one system just got an upgrade.

    Lovely cd/radio

    A bit costly but probably worth it. It's solid, well-crafted, in a beautiful polished wood case. I had a hard time getting good radio reception in my room with three different stereos. When I bought the Tivoli, it was a strong, clear signal before I had even uncoiled the antenna wire.
    Literally the only drawback I can find is that the power button is mixed in with all the other small buttons; really tricky trying to find in the dark..

    Completely Satisfied

    The Music System BT was ordered online on Aug. 7 and received Aug.11. The unit was well packed for shipping and very easy to set up, and operate.
    I have been listening to it each day and it is just what I was looking for namely, a small system with good sound.

    Great system

    It's in the bedroom and its great to have beautiful classical music come out of the FM as an alarm. But the sound of the thing, whether a CD or radio is gorgeous and the various ways to tailor it to the room work well. Built like a tank and beautiful to look at. On of

    Post-Vinyl Paradise

    I know some of the reviews are lukewarm, but they're all wrong. This is the clearest, most distortion-free, full frequencied yet compact "hi fi system" on the market. It's not what I go to when playing my vinyl collection with a component rig costing me several thousand. But in the age of MP3's, internet sound, digital technology, this is the ONE (I'd also recommend the Tivoli Model One radio--I've purchased but been less happy with the Tivoli plastic products--but most of all you have to have AC-powered, preferably non-compressed sources--to get maximum reward from these wondrous machines. To the discerning ear, the Tivoli Hi Fi system is without equal--use it as a "clock radio" or mere CD player, if you don't mind self-indulging. Or employ it as your central music system. Both you and above all your music deserve it.

    For discerning ears

    The only reason the Tivoli Music System has received lukewarm reviews from some self-styled "experts" is that its sound is not artificially colored or disproportionately favored in low or high ends. The remarkable machine produces honest, pure, natural representation of the sound as recorded at the source. Since the iPod/Mp3 revolution at the beginning of the new millennium as well as the sudden improvement and acceptance of internet sound in just the past couple of years (10 years ago RealPlayer and Windows Media sounded horrible--worse than even the proverbial two Dixie Cups and a string--but now internet sound has become acceptable to most ears--even those audiophiles who resist because of its pronounced audio limitations (i.e. compression) are won over by the convenience. But the Tivoli Music System is high fidelity in the purest sense--it's faithful to the sounds in nature, providing generous amounts of undistorted power to cover the highest highs of a Steinway grand and the lowest lows of a Bosendorfer concert grand (which adds half an octave at the bottom end to complement tthe traditional 88). Too many listeners who critique the instrument are familiar only with the dense textures of guitar and vocals--that mid-register "wall of sound" that dominates most pop (including rock and country) music of today. Limited requirements for a limited selection of music.

    If your interest is in jazz or classical, there's nothing better than the Tivoli Music System (except perhaps the extravagant system I pieced together in the 1970s--but some of the materials for manufacturering my high-end VR Type III $400 Shure cartridge and stylus are no longer available (of course, you can still pay several K's for the stylus of your choice), and I no longer have the room for "bookshelf" speakers like the JBL Lancers and Athenas (the latter with 14" woofers). The Tivoli Hi Fi system is Kloss technology at its very best. No, it doesn't have internet or Cloud connectivity--which is a plus for those of us serious about our precious collections, numbering in the thousands of CDs. Although the accompanying manual recommends setting the sound stage at "Stereio," I confess that I'm quickly seduced by the setting called "Wide Stereo"--not because of the surround-sound effect but because it frequently foregrounds instruments I otherwise tend to ignore. But that's merely a personal preference. Each owner can experiment to discover his own preferred sound stage, which wll depend upon factors such as musical style and even engineering (a Rudy Van Gelder recording sounds hugely different from a Roy DuNann-engineered session of the same instrumentation (for Contemporary Records). Fortunately, the Tivoli Hi Fi system allows me to equalize both bass and treble settings--a great help in instances where the recording of a piano is the work of Van Gelder, who insists on altering its natural sound to a degree that requires "fixing" on the part of the discerning audiophile (and, in my case, pianist).

    I've purchased a wide variety of Tivoli products in the present millennium, most of which continue to serve me better than competitors' products. With the exception of the "iPal" (a battery-operated radio--even one employing a Kloss-inspired design does not have the power to be a "party animal"). After using it a couple of times outside, I went back to my classic and timeless Tivoli Model One, which has the power to fill our 4-story house each morning. But if you have some CDs, you can triple that amount of power with the Tivoli Hi Fi system: whether you call it the "house system" or the ultimate "clock radio," it's the ultimate CD player with adequate connectivity to be at the heart of your home audio system. (Note: treat it well. Every time the device has balked on me, I've merely made matters worse by trying to force the issue. Sometimes, it's a matter of simply waiting another second or two; at other times, it may require unplugging and replugging the machine. But neither my upstairs (bedroom) nor downstairs model (by my Bosendorfer) has ever failed to "self-correct" when given the chance. My only regret is that I didn't invest in the model with the heavy lacquered, piano-like finish. But since I've never seen one up close, I'll choose to believe that I chose wisely to use the savings for purchase of two 8-CD box sets that Bill Evans recorded the week before his passing in Sept., 1980. Thanks to Tivoli, both that moment and the one recorded by the Bill Evans Trio with Scott LaFaro, at the Village Vanguard in June, 1961, sound as fresh, up-close and "present" as does my "oversized" grand piano.

    Not broken so never fixed but deeply discounted in price

    The Tivoli Music System came out ahead in all of my side-by-side comparisons of it with other audiophile systems. The bass was "tighter," and the entire sonic canvas more clear and detailed that the $400 and above speaker-docks (Bose, Klipsch), thus justifying its price (!00% to 200% higher) to the fastidious listener. But now that Tivoli has reduced the price of these amazing machines by 1/2 to 2/3, regardless of color, they're a relative bargain.

    Yes, they're "conservative" in terms of the controls, lay-out, certain "conveniences." But that means they're fashion- and fad-resistant (as we see speaker-docks and USB dropping in popularity). And Bluetooth, now available on tiny (and tinny) speakers for as little as $20, is still a novelty, in its infancy. It can be dicey, erratic and time-consuming to "pair" the devices, and the audio is necessarily inferior.

    Admittedly, the Tivoli system can occasionally be a bit slow and even require re-starts, but in 5 years I've never had to have a repair. Short of the big, complicated and expensive systems of the 1970s, the Tivoli System is the highest quality stereo available., and now it's an irresistible value as well. (As currently priced, it's a far far greater value than the still-overpriced and underpowered portable iPal speaker.)

    MSY: Tivoli Audio Music System - Not quite perfection, but pretty good

    I bought this as a first release as soon as it came out--and the first box I opened had a defective unit. The replacement works fine, but the sound quality isn't quite what I thought it would be--I think I've been spoiled by my old Model One table radio, which sounds a little crisper and cleaner. This system is still light years ahead of most competing units.
    I wish it had less control buttons (and larger markings for each) and didn't automatically try to load a disc every time the 'source' button lands on CD, whether there's a disc there or not. And the AM antenna is more than a little ugly and unwieldy. Still in all, on balance, it's a well-made and well-performing unit and I have given one as a holiday gift, to much gratitude.
