Summary: Let me be very clear about why I purchased this radio. It was to replace my old Radio Shack "Realistic" radio that I had been using for many years in a remote location with an external high gain FM antenna. I thought the new Tivoli would give me a much better quality audio that the old radio.
Summary: Radio is really beautiful, but the bluetooth connection is really bad. I am using it connected to my Mac Book Pro, less than 3 meters distance and the connection fails all the time. The same if I try to connect it to my iphone.
Summary: The am/fm radio is great, the style is very nice, and the feel of the controls is top notch. But don't waste your money for the Bluetooth upgrade - it simply never works. I've tried with iOS, android, and Windows. I've tried tablets, phones, you name it. You can pair once, and only once.
Summary: My Tivoli one BT stopped auto pairing after purchasing a Samsung Note 4 to replace my Note 2. Not only that but now no other device could auto pair as well. Contacted Tivoli and they asked me to send back for a looksee and mentioned making sure had latest software as their is no way to do so...
Summary: It took me about five minutes of listening to the speaker before I packaged it up and sent it back. A $240 speaker should not have distortion at medium sound levels when you're listening to Eric Clapton, and Mumford and Sons.
Summary: I received the radio yesterday. I give it two stars because it looks good and is the size we wanted for a radio in our living room where we listen to NPR. The radio was unable to pick up our local station with out a distorting sound in the background.
Great sound but lasted 2 years before having issues

Summary: Great sound but lasted 2 years before having issues. It makes a fog horn sound when turned on. Tivoli doesn't repair/support its products and its' out of warranty. For $150 there is better quality out there.
Longstanding volume control defect still not fixed

Summary: Purchased this radio almost a decade ago and loved the sound but after a few months the volume control went bad and it would only put out sound at nearly blast. This new purchase has the same problem and it emerged within a week! They never fixed volume control defect.
