  • Summary: Great little radio. But why is the Black Friday Deal price the same as when I bought it six months ago? People, don't be saps at Christmas time!

I have several PALs and love the radio tuning portion product

Jason K "J. T. K.", Amazon

  • Summary: I have several PALs and love the radio tuning portion product. PALs are portable, durable, great for taking to the beach or having with you outside doing yard work. The tuner tunes perfectly, pulls in stations better than most other portable radios. The Bluetooth function? AWFUL. It is maddening to try to pair a device like and iphone or ipad to the PAL BT because it will either take 5-6 tries, or it simply won't pair at all.

Great product, but Bluetooth feature is very poor

Stephen, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a Tivoli fan. I love their products. I have always been very impressed by their build, quality, and sound. This radio does live up to that standard. It's solid. Works perfectly as a portable radio. The sound is clean and clear, even at loud volumes. I purchased this radio to stream Sirius - XM from my Iphone app,through Bluetooth. When I finally get it to work, it's what I want. I listen to it while doing stuff in the garage, bbqing outside, and throughout my house.

Overpiced / Poor Sound

mllekt, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm surprised this radio gets as many good reviews as it does. The sound quality was unimpressive. While classical sounded good, most other genres sounded tinny and hollow. Also the build quality is not what your would expect for the price. All components are plastic and feel rather cheap. There are other options in this price range that have much better sound and build quality.

FM and BT worked just fine, but AM is annoying

Edwin R. Reyes, Amazon
16 July 2014
  • Summary: I would have giving it 5 stars it the AM reception was at least acceptable. FM and BT worked just fine, but AM is annoying. It does not tune right and on top of that it has an awful high pitch noise and background white noise. For BT and FM is excellent, but they dropped the ball on the AM. I have a Model One and a Model 10 as well. The Model One is perfect, but the Model 10 has the same AM problem.

Big sound in a pretty little package

  • Summary: We were looking for a portable radio with Bluetooth capability and debated whether the PAL was worth the money. Now that we've had it for a while, we can definitely say - YES! The radio gets much use - whether it be in the bathroom for the morning news radio, weather, and traffic; in the kitchen for a little music while cooking; in the dining room for talk radio as we peruse the Sunday paper; on the patio for background music when entertaining friends; or on the porch...

Impulse purchase at great price, worth it with a annoying flaw

imaginists, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Some of the reviews on this product make it seem like this is a horrible radio. Its not. Its quite above par. Not stellar, but definitely better than most radios. I wouldn't say get this if the price is quite a bit more than the regular PAL, because the Bluetooth (BT) function (which is the main difference) is really annoying with iOS devices.

Blue tooth not-so-great :(

Monika J. Witczak, Amazon

  • Summary: i love the aesthetic of the product but i'm quite frustrated with the Bluetooth on the device. its reach is not far at all and breaks up. Battery life is also not as long as i would have hopped. Overall, the product is OK.
