Important Warning about the Poor Quality of this Item
1 July 2014
Summary: I bought this radio a few years ago. I love the design and quality. (I have 3 other Tivoli radios.) This one is *terrible8. Over time -- even if the radio is sitting on a shelf, not in sunlight, etc. etc. -- the plastic degrades.
Summary: I was introduced to Tivoli by my brother who had a early model PAL radio. Bought two SongBooks for myself and one as a gift for my father-in-law. Really not happy with these radios. The sound is mediocre at best and I would say better for listening to talk radio than music.
Summary: I ordered this because the picture was of the MATTE Yellow SongBook with black knobs. What I was sent was the GLOSS Yellow with silver knobs. I have been looking for the Matte one on Amazon, but should have just bought it directly from Tivoli.
