Cool and sound is nice, not worth the money

  • Summary: I wanted one of these for years so I finaly nutted-up and dropped $200 so I could listen to NPR out on my patio without having to drag a corded radio out. First impression: Cheap and plastic. Not the solid feel of a "Tivoli Model One" I assumed it would be. Especially for the price. Sound is good for talk radio and tuning is nice with sensative dial but....again, not worth the price. I missed my return window so I'm stuck with it.

Horrible with iPhone!

Carlyle "Higgins", Amazon

  • Summary: I love the sound and a friend bought this as a gift after coveting theirs for years. Unfortunately the shielding from RF interference is not robust enough to support using with a smartphone. In this case iPhone 5 with the aux cable from tivoli. Results in extremely loud and annoying intermittent buzzing noises and pulses which can only be eliminated by airplane mode.

Not so hot the 2nd time around

Dual, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: Our first PAL was a family favorite and saw constant use for more years than I can count. I can't recall what finally failed but we'd replaced several batteries and antennae: it was something else. The deep red model we'd bought had been discontinued and the name changed to iPAL. Sadly this new unit has never worked as well, because the antenna gets a bit loose in the case and loses continuity.

Love it.

Darlene, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased our Tivoli for my husband about 7 years ago. We have used it on a daily basis for the past 7 years and we still love it. The battery was fading a little, so we purchased the replacement battery and it is going strong. My nephew is 16 and he loved that he could plug his MP3 into the Tivoli and it had such great sounds. For his 16th birthday, we bought him his own Tivoli and he loves it.

  • Summary: Sometimes it plays on battery 5 minutes, sometimes an hour. Never longer since day one. Everyone seems to have pretty good luck with this Tivoli, but mine is a real lemon.
