AM and FM To Meet Alexa, Thanks To Tivoli


The quintessential tabletop radio has been propelled into the age of not just the smartphone, but also the smart home.

That’s thanks to the release of Tivoli Audio‘s Model One Digital, which brings a tech refresh to its classic AM/FM tuner.

The Model One Digital builds upon Tivoli Audio’s flagship offering, the Model One radio, with the addition of a multi-operational dial and a multitude of connectivity options, including FM, DAB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Spotify Connect. It features a high-resolution screen and dial.

However, consumers may wish to wait until later in 2017. That’s when Tivoli Audio will be introducing additional models to the collection, while also integrating Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant.

The Model One Digital was designed and engineered by the company’s chief designer, Paul De Pasquale.

He says about the product, “Tivoli Audio introduced the original Model One Radio in 2000, to fill a gap in the market for a high-quality and affordable AM/FM radio. Seventeen years later, we are introducing a product that will keep Tivoli Audio on the cutting edge of audio technology for years to come.”

The Model One Digital retails for $299.99.

Tivoli Audio products are sold in more than 40 countries.
