    Product Description

    Imagine the ideal radio. With a tuner that brings clarity to many of the weakest stations and Bluetooth, the Model One radio begins with a handmade wood cabinet that is both beautiful and the ideal acoustically inert housing. With just three knobs, it is the antithesis of today’s ever more complex electronic products. But behind the Model One’s simple appearance hides a multitude of technology, facilitating higher sound reproduction and better reception over anything else near it in size.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, sounds great
    By Elle K. on June 25, 2016
    I've had the radio for about 3 weeks now, and have used it almost every day.

    - Radio feels sturdy and well-constructed.
    - Appearance: I like that it has a smaller footprint than other similar radios (e.g. Sangean); I wouldn't want anything any bigger than this. It is attractive - clean/modern-looking, while still having a warmer, more traditional look (i.e. not industrial or space-agey, which I feel tends to start looking outdated relatively quickly). I wanted “retro” functionality (i.e. tuning knobs, analog, etc.), but not necessarily an all out retro look. This radio achieves just that. The black radio comes with a white power cord, which looks a little hokey (compared to black body + black cord), but I guess the white does blend in better with the wall.
    - Tuning and volume knobs are responsive and easy to adjust. Very simple and intuitive to use.
    - Bluetooth works well, as far as I can tell - no buzzing like some other reviewers experienced (I have connected from across the room, and from another room in my 700 sq. foot apartment). I have successfully paired an old 2009 Macbook Pro, a first generation iPad air that is a couple updates behind, and a 2014 Macbook Pro. For the 2014 Macbook, I did have some issues initially (the computer could not even detect the radio), but I figured it was the computer itself since my other electronics were able to find/pair with the radio just fine. To fix the issue, I restarted the computer, and held down the control/command/R/P keys until several reboot cycles completed. I read somewhere online that this resets the bluetooth settings on the computer. Not exactly sure how it works, but after doing that, my computer was able to detect the radio and connect just fine. (If upon rebooting, you come to a window that asks whether or not you want to reinstall OSX, just "x" out of the window and select the restart option. Repeat a couple times).
    - Reception/number of available stations has been great. The radio comes with a wire external antenna, but I haven't had to use it. I do live in a major city, in a 3rd (top) floor corner apartment with brick walls, so admittedly not a very challenging environment for reception.
    - Sound: I was a little worried about not having the option of adjusting bass/treble because I always find myself tweaking these in electronics. However, I'm extremely pleased with the sound. I have listened mostly to classical music and NPR radio, as well as other genres (pop, rock, jazz, indie, folk). All sound well-balanced/nice and full/clear to me - neither tinny nor muddy. Really a pleasure to listen to. I do keep the radio on a metal cart, with plenty of space around it (i.e. nothing resting against it, etc.)
    - Price: The price here does fluctuate quite a bit. So, if you’re unsure about paying so much more for bluetooth, just check back periodically. The price will drop down to that of the non-bluetooth version ;)

    In summary, really really loving the look and sound.
