"I LOVE IT. Not only does it features great sound, it also has AM / FM radio and Bluetooth. Great if you’re like me and you’re a bit of a Spotify junkie! You just turn on the Tivoli Audio Pal BT, activate Bluetooth on your phone and bing bang boom – you’:re all set! What’s even better, this baby has a built–in battery that lets you play your favorite tunes even if there’s no electricity around. Like, oh, the beach. Or the park."
Interiorator June 2014
"There are no buttons at all on a PAL: you use two fingers to turn a highly resistive knob that produces a silky motion of smooth stops and intentional finishes. The tuner is geared at a relatively high 5:1 ratio, which means there’s more 'breathing room' between stations. It’s the antithesis of clicky auto-seek….And then there’s the way it sounds. For starters, music and talk just sound better when they’re coming from a well–calibrated radio transmitter."
Trent Wolbe, The Verge January 2014
"Particularly notable were the dynamic shadings that help make voices and music sound so natural. It’s this factor in particular that makes the Model One so enjoyable to listen to for long periods."
Michael Jones, AudioEnz August 2011
“What’s so nice about the Model One is that it does what it’s designed to do really well. It sounds good and picks up stations like crazy. The huge tuning knob has a luxurious feel that reminds me of the fabulously expensive custom pots offered by companies like Cello.”
Wes Phillips FFWD magazine Aug/Sept 2003
“Kloss’ new radio won’t play CD’s, but it will fill a room as well – if not better – than a Bose Wave Radio.”
Eddie Medina, The Boston Globe, September 12, 2001
“And here is where the Model One really shines. In midrange naturalness, Tivoli’s Henry Kloss Model One can compete not only with any table radio but with the sound of far more expensive systems as well.”
Joel Shumer, The Audiophile Voice, Volume 7, Issue 4, 2001
“The Model One was easy on the ears during a test in an office known for poor reception, as well as a more friendly home den. Classical music, jazz, rock, and talk all sounded full and clear, with satisfying, non-room-shaking volume.”
US News and World Report, November 2000
“What’s so special about the Model One? It’s a simple, mono, tabletop AM/FM radio. It has an internal FM antenna and a jack for an external one. It sounds quite good for something its size. But, amazingly, this little sucker picks up and sorts out stations that none of the other tuners in my house can touch. In fact, it does such a good job of this that, in 2001, the readers of Stereophile magazine, that venerable journal of home audio tweakers, tinkerers and big spenders (their idea of a ‘budget’ stereo system is anything that costs less than NZ$ 5,000) voted it one of the 10 best ‘analog source’ products of the year.”
Paul Lehrman, MIX, August 2002
“...one of my favorite radios on the market... Hi-end sound quality in an extremely small package.”
Corey Greenberg, WDIV-TV4, Detroit, September 02, 2000
"Tivoli wins the contest for the best tabletop radio on the market". – Boston Globe
"With a bare-bones design and simple dials, this machine is unassuming yet unexpectedly powerful, as clear as a bell and capable of emitting state of the art sound. Reason enough for going back to radio." – Real Simple magazine, January 2008
"Single-purpose devices are things of beauty when executed properly, and the Tivoli Henry Kloss Model One radio is one of them, Tivoli really got this right. It sounds excellent, the tuner has tremendous pull, and it’s loud as if you need it to be." – Chris Walla, Electronic House, June 2006
"What was surprising, though, was that the Model One pulled in some signals a lot cleaner than the higher-priced radios. I thought the business about the superiority of the "GaAs MES-FET mixers" in the FM section of the Model One was just advertising puffery, but I was wrong. The tuner in the Model One is superb." – Nick Triano, www.geek.com, August 2001
"The Model One is the epitome of ease of use and simplicity: an AM/FM/power knob, a volume knob, a big tuning dial, and a single speaker inside a small wooden case. That’s it. The sound is so good you won’t mind that it’s mono." – Bill Howard, PC Magazine, November 2000
"Good friends are hard to come by, but radio lovers may want to get acquainted with Tivoli Audio’s PAL." – Sound & Vision, October 2002
"This unique carry-along AM/FM radio packs a lot of audio punch into a compact musical brick. Also striking is the pin-point-precise manual tuner – the PAL brings in stations better than any other portable on the market, effectively fending off noise and interference across the AM and FM bands." – Steve Morgenstern, Cigar Aficionado, June 2003
