Summary: I've had an iPal for several years now. The sound is great, but it's hard to hold an FM station sometimes. It flickers in and out from perfect FM reception on a particular station to none at all. Something in the dial isn't working maybe. The plastic volume button keeps coming loose.
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.
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.
Summary: If this is your fist Tivoli, consider the unequaled "classic" models with wooden cabinetry first. The Pal and iPal provide the same Henry Kloss design, audio quality and tuning, but are more vulnerable to inconsistency, depending on source material in iPods, strength of FM signal, placement of the...
Summary: Purchased for radio listening and playing mp3s from my phone on my deck. In Chicago, reception for wbez is great. As the manual notes, lowering the antennae, provides better reception in dense areas, allowing me to listen to wfmt, 98.7.
Summary: I've enjoyed the radio for about 4 years and was really impressed with the sound. Finish started peeling after about 2 years, which was a bummer. Recently the volume has failed and hunts high and low (on it's own - not while turning the switch).
Summary: Overall, I have been very satisfied with this radio and have had none of the battery, connection, etc. problems of other reviewers, possibly because I have only had it for two years, it receives light use, and is only plugged in when it needs charging.
Summary: Useful PAL accessory to carry the PAL around together with an ipod in the side pocket. Why just 3 stars? 1. It's just a bag, of course, hardly anything to get excited about. 2. It's a pity that the power supply doesn't fit in a side pocket.
Summary: This is my second pal radio. The audio is great, the battery life is great. My previous pal was one of my favorite possesions. This time I got a gloss blue/silver one. The printing on the blue for tuning stations almost exactly matches the color of the unit, you can only see the printing as a...
Summary: This is a great little radio, but it has an annoying design flaw. In order to make things supposedly more simple, the designers decided that the OFF/FM/AM switch should also be a battery charging mode selector switch.
