Ported Wood Cabinet w/ Full-Range Mono Driver: The Tivoli Audio Model
One BT features a furniture-grade, handmade, real-wood cabinet that is both
beautiful and acoustically inert. The Model One BT uses a single 3.0"
heavy-magnet, long-throw full-range driver for great sound. The 3.0" full-range
driver is mated to a frequency contouring circuit that automatically adjusts
output over half-octave increments, resulting in musically accurate tonal
balance and bass response. The enclosure's down-firing port provides added
efficiency and bass-response.
Henry Kloss Analog AM/FM Tuner w/5:1 Analog Tuning Dial: The Model One
BT is equipped with a
Henry Kloss analog AM/FM tuner for precise radio station tuning. To take full
advantage of the AM/FM tuner's high sensitivity and selectivity, the Model One
BT uses a precise analog tuning system with a geared-down 5:1 ratio analog
tuning dial for accurate, easy selection of the maximum number of stations. The
5:1 tuning gear ratio provides easy, accurate tuning. A front-panel LED tuning
indicator illuminates amber and is brightest when the best tuning has been
achieved (some listenable AM stations will not light the tuning indicator and
should be tuned by ear for the clearest signal). The tabletop radio's internal
FM and AM antennas provide good reception in most applications. Locating the
Model One BT near a window will provide better reception. The unit is also
equipped with external AM/FM antenna connections and comes with an external FM
- Internal/External FM Antenna: An alternative to the
tabletop radio's built-in FM antenna, is the supplied indoor external FM
wire antenna or optional FM dipole antenna (sold separately). Also,
connecting your cable television 75-ohm coaxial cable to the radio's
external FM connection may provide clearer local FM reception; although you
must usually request activation of this service through your cable company.
- Internal/External AM Antenna: When listening to AM,
rotate the Model One itself to align the internal AM antenna for improved
reception. There is a 3.5mm external AM antenna input for connecting an
optional AM antenna (sold separately) to achieve even better AM reception.
Built-in Bluetooth (A2DP): The Tivoli Audio Model One BT
offers built-in Bluetooth version 2.1+EDR technology with advanced A2DP profile
for high-quality wireless audio streaming from your Bluetooth-enabled device;
such as your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry,
laptop, or other device. The Model One BT also incorporates Frequency Hopping
Spread Spectrum (FHSS) which result in low-to-no noise interference with other
wireless devices. You will continue to control playback of your Bluetooth
connected device from the device, itself (not the Model One BT).
Notes: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the Model One BT.
Audio Connections: The Model One BT AM/FM radio is equipped
with the following rear-panel audio inputs and outputs.
- Auxiliary Input: The unit features a 3.5mm auxiliary
input for connecting an external device (such as your CD player or MP3

Model One's mono speaker.
- Record Output: The radio's 3.5mm record output (fixed)
lets you record music from the built-in AM/FM radio to a connected tape-deck
or CD recorder. You can also use the Model One's record output to the
connect the AM/FM tabletop radio to your home entertainment system.
- Headphone Output: The radio is equipped with a 3.5mm
headphone output for connecting a set of stereo headphones for private
listening. Connecting headphones will mute the Model One's mono speaker.

stable surface (do not block the bottom bass port). The radio is not video
shielded and should be kept at least 5" away from a computer monitor or
television. The unit can be positioned vertically, as well as horizontally.
Placement in a bookcase, cabinet, or close to walls or corners may increase bass
AC Power Adapter: The Tivoli Audio Model One BT operates off
of standard household AC current using the supplied 10' AC power cord
(117V-60Hz/25W). The unit features a front-panel LED which illuminates green
when the unit's power is 'On'.
Note: The 12VDC/800ma port is for use with an optional 1A
fused/12VDC adapter (sold separately), for operation in a boat or camper.
The connector must be a 5.5mm/2.1mm center-positive.
