Summary: It says "table radio," but my Model Two is my main stereo system. When I moved into a small downtown condo, I downsized my stereo system too. I'm a classical music critic, so accurate acoustic sound is very important to me, and the Model Two supplies all the strength, warmth and clarity I need in listening to classical, jazz, rock and every other kind of music. It easily fills the space with gorgeous sound.
Summary: Exactly what I was looking for. Straight AM/FM. Very clean classic rich look. Have only owned for 1 month and amp went out. Took it back to Fred's audio in Portland and they replaced the unit. Hope this does not happen once warranty expires in 11 months.
Summary: I've owned this radio for about a year now and unfortunately have found it quite disappointing. My goal was to buy a simple, high-quality shelf speaker system that could accept an aux input, allowing me to use web-based music services from my phone or tablet. If you're looking to do something like this, or really anything other than listen to the radio, I think there are better products out there (especially at this price). The good- it looks beautiful.
Summary: Let me say first that I absolutely love the Tivoli Model Two radio. It is one of the best purchases I have ever made. The selectivity of the tuner is phenomenal and the sound from the speakers is wonderful for listening. The optional subwoofer, on the other hand, is such a mess that it nearly seems like a work of sabotage.
Summary: Having spent most of my life buying very good music systems, when this came out in 2001, having already purchased 9 Model 1, I knew it would be great. Henry Kloss, RIP never did things wrong ! I also purchased the sub-woofer which is still with this system with it's little antenna on the mantle of one fireplace. Picking up stations up to 80 miles away. Cannot say enough about this fantastic little system.
Summary: Adds nice, SUBTLE, bass amplification. Unless you really listen for it, you won't notice. This is not a unit for thumping bass - it just drops the frequency range a tad. Styling and quality is nice. Don't hide it away or under furniture because, unless you switch it off first (don't rely on its own Automatic setting), it will put out a really loud thumping sound if the source powers off first.
Summary: When we moved to our new house 2 years ago, we needed a small, unobtrusive stereo for our living room. Big black boxes of audio equipment would not meet the WAF (wife approval factor). I wanted something that looked beautiful and sounded fantastic. The Model 2 has been a dream. Easy to use, beautiful to look at, small, compact, and simple to attach an iDevice. It's a perfect small room system with big sound.
