Product Description

Product Description

Tivoli Audio introduces the world’s first satellite table radio designed exclusively for home use with built in SIRIUS Satellite Radio. The new Model Satellite radio is designed by Tivoli Audio CEO, Tom DeVesto, and is based on the popular, award-winning

Amazon.com

Tivoli Audio has won acclaim far and wide for their line of small, yet powerful audio components, including the venerable Henry Kloss Model One. What better way to continue the tradition than release a satellite radio all wrapped up in classic Tivoli styling?

The Model Satellite is the first satellite table radio designed exclusively for home use with the Sirius Satellite Radio service. Tivoli Audio has teamed up with Sirius to offer an elegantly simple, yet technologically sophisticated satellite radio. The new Model Satellite radio is designed by Tivoli Audio CEO, Tom DeVesto, and is based on the popular, award-winning tuner used in the Tivoli Model One, Two and Three radios, which were engineered by Audio Hall of Fame member Henry Kloss.

The Model Satellite delivers digital quality sound from 65 commercial-free music channels, as well as over 40 news, sports and entertainment channels (Subscription required, activation fee applies). The blue, backlit LCD is easy to read and provides easy and clear navigation. The radio has pre-sets for your favorite Sirius channels and searches by artist, song, and channel. All the information you need -- artist info, song title, category, and time -- is easily viewed on the screen. Sirius is the only place where subscribers can hear the entire NFL season, as well as popular programming from NPR, CNN, FOX News and many others. The radio is housed in a finely crafted furniture grade cherry wood cabinet with taupe metallic faceplate and champagne-toned knobs. It comes with a remote control and a compact indoor/outdoor Sirius antenna.

Of course, Tivoli hasn't forgotten about FM tuning, either. The tuner uses a discrete-component FM tuner technology originally developed for cell phones and engineered for the first time in the Model One. The exceptionally sensitive and accurate tuner receives weak or hard-to-tune FM stations so you can tune into all your favorite stations, and perhaps ones you didn't know existed! And yes, AM tuning is also provided so you won't miss your favorite local talk radio. The Model Satellite also features inputs for other Tivoli Audio components including an optional stereo speaker, the Model CD Player and the Model Subwoofer.

What's in the Box
Model Satellite Radio, external FM antenna, external Sirius antenna, external AM loop antenna, power supply, remote control with battery, warranty registration card.

Customer Reviews

It does not have an internal power supply.
Sam Love
Even FM stations sound great, but I rarely listen since the satellite stations are much better.
MikeJM
Still, a very classy look with great sound.

I have no doubt that one reason for the slow adoption of Satellite Radio by consumers is the lousy hardware. I mean, what are they thinking? The collection of products for both Sirius and XM looks like the over-designed, comic book props in Star Wars movies. They're totally dysfunctional. Nothing as elegant as an iPod, with the possible exception of Pioneer's portable radios for XM. Even the car radio's are clunky.

The Tivoli Model Satellite is the one exception to the ugly, under-performing Satellite Radio rule. The sound is about as good as it gets. Indeed, almost too good since it really points up the excessive compression used by both satellite and commercial FM broadcasters. You won't notice this difference until you play an uncompressed CD or MP3 file from your iPod through the AUX port on the Tivoli. Wow! What an amazing sound out of such small speakers. And I don't even have the subwoofer speaker accessory.

The Sirius section works great. It's easy to program. It's got a great "Memo" feature to capture the name and artist of 20 songs you'd like to look up later.

I did invest in a serious outdoor Sirius Antenna prior to the arrival of the Tivoli, so it was just a matter of plugging it in. The FM and AM sections worked fine without any external antennas. It's impressive that they include a serious external AM antenna - something I haven't seen packaged with table radios since the 1970s, and then only expensive "audiophile" models.

As noted by others, the Satellite and AM/FM functions aren't at all integrated. This is basically the Tivoli Model 1 with a Satellite function tacked on as an afterthought.

I love Sirius in my car for its niche channels like jazz, Folk Town and Bluegrass so I bought the Tivoli table model. On the positive side the sound is GREAT -- right up there with Bose, but the design leaves some things to be desired. 1. It won't work without external antennas for AM, FM or Sirius. 2. It does not have an internal power supply. 3. To get stereo or CD you have to buy additional boxes. 4. You really do have to have a clear view of the sky where the satelite is located. Trees and buildings block the signal. 5. You might as well order the third party signal booster and antenna extension because it only comes with a 30 foot cable to the antenna which will probably not get it to your roof. 6. There is not an easy way to feed additional stereo equipment to take advantage of a home sound system. 7. There is no way to cut off the big blue info screen which is really BIG and Blue. When installed this thing has as many wires and connections as a lobbyist in Washington. But if you can put up with the clunky design it is wonderful.

I was initially quite skeptical about satellite radio. Then, I saw the Tivoli in an advertisement and decided to take a chance. I was very pleasantly surprised with the radio and the Sirius satellite service. I've brought the radio to my office and can enjoy commercial free music throughout the work day. The sound from this small, mono radio is remarkably clear and powerful. This includes both high and low range sounds. The remote control is compact and easy to use; actually, I prefer the remote, since the buttons on the radio are small. You can store 20 of your favorite satellite stations for easy access. Even FM stations sound great, but I rarely listen since the satellite stations are much better. The Sirius lineup is excellent, and it truly is commercial free music. (News and Talk stations have brief commercial breaks.) Overall, I definitely recommend the Tivoli satellite radio (and Sirius satellite radio).

This is a gorgeous little radio but... there is no way to adjust the tone. I feel the sound is WAY too bass-y. The power source is cumbersome and impossible to hide out of site. I just hate all of those ugly wires. The control buttons are hard to read unless you have good light and put your nose right up to it. There is really no satellite equipment that is asthetically pleasing right now so I guess this is the best one out there if this is important to you.

My Nightstand was a mess!Until I bought this! I originally had a sirius reciever, a huge radio from cambridge soundworks all on one tiny nightstand. It was so cluttered. That I knew it was time to get some kind of an "All in One" device.

I laid eyes on this Tivoli, and I was hooked. I just got it Today, and It sounds incredible. I know there is an extra speaker/subwoofer available for this unit, but the built in speaker is enough to fill my entire bedroom w/ great sound.

The built in FM Tuner has INCREDIBLE reception, haven't tested the AM yet, but I'm sure that it'll will be just as good. I also have my iPod hooked up through the Auxillary input on the back.

And It takes up Hardly any space on my nightstand!

Overall, I'd highly recommend this system for anyone that want's all of there music sources in one compact device, that produces incredible sound.

Only gripe I have w/ the Radio is that the Remote doesn't have a volume control on it (but it does have a mute button).

Go with this Radio, and you won't be disappointed! Now we just need Sirius to come out w/ a fully portable walkman type unit and we'll be all set!
