Summary: Less than a year and with limited play at work, and never at a volume over “don’t want to bother the next desk over” limit, the radio has quit working (pops and screeches). I thought this was supposed to be a quality radio, which is why I paid so much for it.
Summary: We purchased our first one before they had the blue tooth. Good little radio! The second one with blue tooth was a gift for daughter. They are simple to use and have good sound. As I try to submit this product rating on my time, using my words to discribe the product as I would, I am directed to use...
Summary: I would not recommend this radio to anyone. The problems: Tuning is consistently terrible in many ways, including: sometimes AM does not come in at all; often an FM station that had reasonable clarity disappears; often cannot dial in other AM and FM stations; all stations that I find eventually...
Summary: I don't understand all the hype about Tivoli radios. I have a model 1 and a PAL, and both of them have terrible FM reception. The model one in my office is next to the window. I am 3 blocks from our local NPR station, with uninterrupted signal path.
Summary: $100 to add Bluetooth? Shame on Tivoli. I own five other Tivoli radios. Great sound quality, wonderful to own. But this is insulting and should be added at minimal extra cost. http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews?ie=UTF8&action=preview#

Summary: This unit does not work properly with the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S or any device updated to iOS 7 -- there is a problem where the unit will not remember any of those devices. If you own either phone, or if you've updated to the new Apple OS, you must re-connect every time you want to use Bluetooth on...
Decent sound and looks but very low quality electronics

Summary: I bought this radio from Target a few years ago as I liked the classic looks. I think I paid $149. I'm an audiophile (have several thousand dollars worth of hi-fi gear) and thought the sound quality was decent for what it was.
Summary: Two problems make this radio unusable: It progressively drops signals (i.e., after turning to an apparently strong signal, it fades to static and requires me to manually retune the radio). And, when tuned in, the volume fluctuates from the desired volume to LOUD and then back. *NOT* recommended.
