Yes, there are bigger iPod players. We make some of them. But if you need something that sounds terrific, is easily moved around, and was designed to work with your iPod, nothing does it like the iPAL® radio.

The iPAL radio's auxiliary input connects your iPod, CD player, or any other audio device, delivering sound that must be heard to be believed from a player this small. The radio features the same renowned AM/FM tuner, 5:1 dial, and advanced audio circuitry that have made Tivoli Audio® radios benchmarks of the audio world. “Whether you're looking for a way to liberate your iPod’s tunes or you just want a top-notch radio, you can’t go wrong with the Tivoli Audio iPAL. It remains our favorite portable radio.” (CNET)

The iPAL radios environmentally friendly NiMH battery recharges in less than three hours, and offers up to 16 hours* of listening pleasure. “In terms of bass, clarity, and loudness, the Tivoli is in a class of its own. The Tivoli Audio iPAL is the best sounding portable speaker on the market for the iPod, and its got AM/FM to boot when you feel like listening to local radio. Highly recommended.” (NBCs Today Show)

If you want to be completely free off cables, check out the PAL BT; the Bluetooth enabled version of the iPAL.

Telescoping FM antenna, built-in AM antenna, NiMH battery pack, AC adapter, and stereo mini-cable included. One year warranty.

*Playback time varies depending on volume level
**iPod and dock not included

    Retired CEO, Faculty

    I kept the Model Two in the office, superb for background music (much better than white noise) for confidential conferences and phone calls, but I have 2 of these iPals at home - one for morning NPR in the bathroom and one for music or recorded books in the kitchen. Plenty of very clean clear sound, and just pick it up if you change rooms. We always pack one for vacation trips too.

    These are Great!

    We have owned four (4) of these little guys for 12 years. I have replaced the batteries in each of them one (1) time. For the price and what they are, they are fantastic.

    We have two (2) home offices with a iPal in each; an iPal in our basement workout gym; and, an iPal in the travel bag for on the go.

    These are hard to beat for durability, looks and price.

    Love Tivoli radios

    I have owned an iPal for about 6 years. Looks great, sounds great and is of the highest build quality.

    I also own a Tivoli Audio Model Two AM/FM table radio with external second speaker and CD player. Also love that radio.

    In my opinion, Tivoli is the Apple of audio equipment manufacturers. High quality, intuitive, and highly satisfying to own. Both radios are highly recommended.

    The rare mediocre and overpriced Tivoli Product

    My wife and I first became enamored of the sound of the Tivoli Model One radio. Soon we had the Tivoli Clock Radio and next the 2nd speaker for stereo. Then my wife gave me the Tivoli "High Fidelity System," costing at the time over a thousand. At first I was dubious, but not after side-by-side tests with the currently most acclaimed speakers and speaker-dock systems. To discerning ears, the Tivoli system's was most 'faithful" (demonstrating the highest fidelity) to the original sound source. I'm shocked to see this superior system (better than Bose) going for half price (admittedly, design and controls are conservative and not always quick and user-friendly--but the sound!!! unequaled!).

    My only disappointment thus far has been the Tivoli iPal. Though not stereo, the audio is superior to most cheap stere systems. But it's not truly a personal speaker to be taken wherever one goes. And when played at full gain outside, its deficiencies are all too noticeable. It falls on its face, the sound simply failing to project with undistorted clarity and power for more than a few feet. I'm incredulous that this little device has gone up in price (from 150) while the Hi Fi System has come way way down (from 1000-1500) to close to 500. it's in the Tivoli High Fi System where the best value is to be found.

    Old Friend

    I've owned mine for several years now. Except for a battery pack change, it works flawlessly! It even survived a few months in the bathroom while I was taking a shower until my shower radio was replaced. The sound is still very good. It's my Old Friend!

    still amazes me every time

    I purchased an ipal after hearing one for the first time. i was so blown away by the clarity and musical quality of this little box that i went right out and bought one. around 6 years later I'm still amazed every time i listen to it. It really sounds THAT good. I've just bought a songbook for my mum as she was so impressed by my ipal, so hopefully she'll have years of enjoyment also.

    As a sound engineer by profession, i spend a lot of time listening to different types of music and people always ask me what my hifi is like,.....its my ipal.

    Tiny, Big Sound!

    Its cute as heck and sounds better than my stereo system, small enough to be portable to anywhere, and can be hooked up to other audio peripherals. My only beef is how long it took to get here but I got over that after seeing it.

    Best Product in the World

    I am not exaggerating. I have had my precious iPal for six years, and I listen to it many hours every day. I take it from room to room, and outside, too. It follows me everywhere. The sound is great, and the dial makes everything so simple. I just love this product. (I hate even calling it a "product" because I feel like it's a family member. Seriously.)
