If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ve probably noticed the frequent appearance of one of our very favorite belongings: the Tivoli Model One (seen here and here and here, for example). We’ve had this hardworking little radio for years. It’s followed us to three different apartments in two different cities and—nerd alert—we’ve logged more hours listening to public radio on this guy than we could ever count. The fact that it’s so darn pretty is just icing.
When Tivoli recently offered us an upgrade—and offered the same to one lucky Reading My Tea Leaves reader—we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to up our music listening game.*
Enter the Tivoli Music System Two.
The slightly larger system has two speakers, a subwoofer, two alarms, radio presets, and most awesomely, Bluetooth, which means that it can connect to computers, tablets, cellphones and anywhere else where you might store your music collection. (See Tiny Apartment Survival Tip #51 if you need encouragement to digitize your tunes.)
We’ve been giddily connecting through Bluetooth for stereo sound effects while watching movies and streaming Pandora as we rock sweet Faye to sleep. In case this bit hasn’t sunk in, this means no tangle of wires. Heaven. As for the radio bit, let’s just say that listening to Ira Glass in stereo is an awfully nice improvement.
Happily, even with the upgrade the new radio is still marvelously compact. Oh, and there’s a remote control. Fancy.
For a chance to win a Tivoli Music System Two of your very own, leave a comment below, complete with your contact information, and a note about the very first album you remember loving (mine is John Fogerty’s Centerfield—’Rock and Roll Girl’ being my personal anthem).
