Tivoli Audio Model 10+

RH Numbers

This likeable bigger sibling to the PAL+ (below) has a heftier construction, though it loses the rechargeable battery, so you can’t take it into the bathroom or garden. It’s still diminutive in size but the sound is great, as if the radio is all speaker driver and little else. It has alarm timers for bedside duty and a slim remote control.

At the back are an array of sockets, including one for an optional second speaker, converting this mono radio into stereo. You can also add a subwoofer, change the rod aerial for a rooftop connection, and there are aux in and recorder out jacks, plus a curious ‘mix in’ that blends the aux in with the radio tuner’s audio.

Tivoli Audio PAL+

RH Numbers

The ‘Portable Audio Laboratory’ does double duty as a perfectly respectable table radio but it is also supplied with a built-in rechargeable battery for true portable use. It boasts designer looks, available in numerous colours, a tiny footprint (just over 9cm square), simple push-wheel control and an auto set-up.

There’s a remote control, alarm/sleep timers and aux input, but no iPod or phone docking ports. Its sound is only mono, but given its size, the audio is excellent. It's not just design over substance. That said, it is expensive, but there will be plenty of folks for whom this discrete, compact radio will be just right.
