About the Tivoli Audio Model 3
The Henry Kloss Model 3 clock radio keeps precision time and delivers beautiful radio sound, but the first thing you'll notice is its classic good looks. This elegant, hand-crafted clock radio features a furniture-grade cherry wood cabinet and metallic taupe face it makes a handsome and stylish addition to any room decor. And with its large tuning dial and simple, straightforward front-panel layout, the Model 3 is so easy to operate.
Thanks to smart tuning technology developed by audio pioneer Henry Kloss, radio stations come in crystal clear. The discrete-component FM tuner features the same innovative signal-detection technology found in cellular phones. Plus, the analog tuning dial is geared down to a 5:1 ratio, so turning the knob results in smaller, more precise, movements of the tuning mechanism. The amber LED indicator lets you know when you've zeroed in on the station. And get ready for that legendary Henry Kloss sound it must be heard to be believed!
The fine quartz analog clock provides accurate time keeping. With a sleep timer, snooze button, and easy-set alarm, the Model 3 is the ideal bedside companion. The constant, gentle illumination makes the clock face visible in low or no light without keeping you awake.
To add a dose of smooth, solid bass to the Model 3, you might want to consider the Model Subwoofer it's a perfect cosmetic match, and it extends the low-frequency response by half an octave. And with Tivoli's Dual Alarm Speaker, you can add true stereo sound plus a second alarm!

More details on the Tivoli Audio Model 3
Overview: The Model Three is a small, tabletop AM/FM clock radio. It's easy to use and within its design limits provides very good sound. The rotary analog tuning knob offers the ability to fine tune radio stations. The Model Three uses many of the designs and tuner technologies created by Henry Kloss, legendary inventor and audio designer, and co-founder of Acoustic Research, KLH, and Cambridge Soundworks.
Cabinet: The Model Three's cabinet is made with real cherry wood, with a dark brown metal speaker grille and a dark gray face plate.
Analog Clock: The analog clock's fine quartz mechanical movement provides accurate time keeping and compliments the analog tuning dial. The clock face is lit by a single LED for nighttime viewing. The clock is separately powered by a "AA" battery (supplied), and in the event of a power failure, will continue to maintain the clock's operation and sound the wake-up tone if the alarm button is in the On position.
Alarm: The Model Three's alarm can be set by rotating the clock's bezel counter-clockwise to the desired wake-up time. You can wake up to the radio or the alarm tone, whichever you desire. If there is a power failure at the wake-up time, the alarm will sound the wake-up tone instead of turning on the radio. Note: Due to the nature of the alarm thumbwheel's analog mechanism, the alarm may sound with up to a five-minute deviation (plus or minus) from the desired wake-up time.
Snooze: The Model Three includes a snooze button on the top of the unit. When the alarm sounds, the snooze feature will silence the alarm for approximately 5 minutes, after which the alarm sound will automatically resume.
Sleep Timer: If you wish to fall asleep to the radio, you can use the Model Three's 20-minute sleep timer.
Speaker: The Model Three features a single 3" full-range driver on the top of the unit. A companion right-channel speaker (sold separately) can be connected and the unit can be switched to stereo operation. The rear-mounted balance control should be kept in the "left" position until the companion speaker is connected.
FM Tuner: The Model Three uses a discrete-component FM tuner with GaAs MES-FET mixers to provide better reception with increased clarity on closely-spaced local and far-away stations. To take full advantage of the FM tuner's high sensitivity and selectivity, the Model Three uses a precise analog tuning system with a 5:1 ratio tuning dial for accurate, easy selection of the maximum number of stations.
Antenna: The Model Three has a built-in antenna for both AM and FM reception. To improve FM reception, you can use the threaded FM coaxial antenna input for connecting the supplied FM wire antenna or other optional antenna. Note: A rear-panel switch allows you to switch between internal and external FM antennae. The switch does not affect AM reception.
Tuning Indicator: This front-panel LED glows bright amber 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.
Auxiliary Input: The Model Three has an input for connecting the Tivoli Model CD (item #582MCDTPE) or other audio device. The rear-mounted jack will accept a 1/8" stereo mini-plug. The unit's source knob allows you to select AM, FM, or Aux.
Mix In: You can connect your computer or another source's audio output to this stereo input to hear audio mixed-in with either the tuner or auxiliary device if connected. The volume level of this input must be adjusted at the source. The jack accepts a 1/8" male stereo mini plug.
Headphone Output: To listen privately, you can connect stereo headphones to the Model Three's stereo mini-jack headphone output, located on the rear panel. The headphone volume is controlled by the unit's volume control, and the speaker is muted when headphones are plugged in.Record Output: You may record from the Model Three by connecting a recording device to this fixed-level, 1/8" female stereo mini-jack. You may also use the Model Three as an AM/FM tuner by connecting a receiver or integrated amplifier's line input to this output. The Model Three's speaker will not be muted when using this output.
Subwoofer Output: You can enhance the bass by connecting Tivoli Audio's Model Subwoofer (item #582SUBC) to the Model Three's mini-jack subwoofer output.
12 Volt DC Operation: There is a 12-Volt jack on the back (12-16VDC, tip positive) for plugging in the supplied AC adapter, or for a separate DC power supply (not included) for portable use of the unit in cars, campers, etc.
