Reviews and Problems with Tivoli Audio Model Three Radio

Really keeps the spirit of the Kloss Model 1 alive
5 February 2013
Summary: When I was young I heard a Kloss Model 1 and I had really never heard anything that really had that kind of wonderful sound. I think it was back in the 1970s when I first heard one. It didn't seem possible that kind of sound could come out of something that 'small'. I liked the sort of 'laboratory' style it had. In a way, it also sort of looked like some of the esoteric home built kits with the big geared dial/knob and very basic design and function.
Don't Even Think About......$300 paperweight.....well, plus clock

Summary: Stay far away from this radio. I'm looking at my broken one right now and feeling very ripped off. My $300 Tivoli Audio Table radio Model Three has started going in to hum mode whenever I turn up the volume even a little. The hum takes over and I have to shut it off, turn it on and try to not raise the volume. Eventually however, it just goes in to hum mode. When I called Tivoli today I was informed that for $75 they would take a look a it.
Summary: I have had this radio for more than 6 years now and I love the looks. The sound is great. As one reviewer mentioned already, I wish it had dimmer or an option to turn off the display lights (including the green light that indicates that the alarm is on). The lights are too bright for my taste and I have cover them.
Summary: I really do love the look and sound of the radio. I noticed other reviewers commented about the brightness of the light. I don't see that as a problem but it may have been something that was adjusted as a result of the reviews. It can, however, be difficult to figure out the time because the length of the minute and hour hands is not that different. I am, however, satisfied with the product.
Summary: I listen to relaxing music played on the CD player attached to my Model One. Usually I read for a while, sometimes as long as an hour, before falling asleep. But it bugs me to leave the machines on all night. I would like a clock radio/CD player. Having a timer that can be set for at least an hour is a minimum requirement. The clock/timer functions are not robust and do not match the audio and enclosure excellence of the Tivoli offerings.
Summary: While staying at one of Atlanta's finest Hotel, I had the opportunity to try out the Tivoli Audio® Model Three® AM/FM clock radio. I knew I would have to purchase my own. Thanks for making a great product.
Summary: I bought this clock radio recently, together with the accompanying Model Three Dual Alarm Speaker. It's quite an expensive clock radio, even without the dual alarm speaker. But if you're willing to pay the price, it's a beautiful looking, sounding and designed clock radio. The sound is smooth and warm, the build solid, and the design classic and elegant.
Summary: Wonderful sound quality. The design is very simple and elegant. The only draw-back is that the back light is bright! I need to put a cloth over the clock at night because it illuminates the room. I wish there was a dimmer control.
