“Funny we should even call the inclusion of a blue/white digital readout an “extra” feature, but surely it is – after all, the Tivoli line has been known for the longest time as one of the simplest devices out there. Especially for those looking for a good AM/FM radio, you didn’t have to look too far for good design and technology. Today, we present to you… the Model 10.
The Model 10 manages to maintain its “Tivoli chicness” (if there exists such a thing) – including 7 different finishes including limited edition faux-aluminum models for those who want to separate themselves from the rest. Otherwise, you get the same great hardware accompanied with a number of new features.
Among them is an alarm clock with an adjustable equalization system that lets the listener set his or her own preferences for treble, bass, loudness and balance. All controls are accessible with either the top-mounted rotary dial or by a remote and all functions are readable on the new backlit LCD display/menu screen. The 10 also carries an auxiliary input for CD, MP3 players and iPhones/iPods and a DC input (just in case you were thinking about taking it mobile).
The new radio, which will sell in the U.S. at $200 and be available with an optional matching stereo speaker and overpriced iPod dock ($120). The units appear very similar to the company’s NetWorks Internet radio system, but its chassis is slightly smaller.
