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: 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: 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.
Summary: I purchased two Tivoli Model Two Stereos brand new. We were initially thrilled with the purchase. As others have reported, they sound great and they look wonderful in our modern decorating scheme. However, after about two years, both units ceased to produce any sound to the ancillary (stereo) speaker when using the stereo with an external source. I love the look of these stereos, and when they work, they sound great.
Summary: This is my second pair of these amazing speakers (in a different color). I had my first pair since 2005, and they've traveled the world with me and are still going strong. They are beautiful, compact, and have amazing sound. They're well worth the price. I've seen and used a few cheap imitators, and they buzz with the lows and struggle with tuning.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Compact, Easy To Setup, Good Sound
Summary: We've been listening to music on our computer for years, but to tune in to my husband's favorite baseball team this summer, we needed a radio. We bought the Tivoli based on style, but have found it to have superb sound quality and great tuning capabilities. We're pulling in stations from beyond our metro area and the sound is crystal clear. Amazing. It's also super simple to connect our iPods and computer to the system for great sound quality.
Pros: Easy to set up, Easy to use, Great design, Great sound quality
