Most Stylish Way To Deliver Great Audio
After listening to my colleague's Model 1 at work 9 years ago, I bought the Model 2 and loved it ever since. The Model 2 actually rivals my smaller, professional reference monitors used for studio recording.
I've just received my Model 10 for my birthday and I am ultra pleased with this stereo. I brought mine to work and use it for radio, iPhone (Aux) and computer audio (Mix In).
The audio range is exceptional. There is not a musical note/instrument that is missed with the clarity of the Model 10. The many options for cabinet styles are absolutely guaranteed to spruce up any office, home or studio. The hours at work are now a bit elevated and enjoyable, at least for my ears. As with all Tivoli models, this unit is easy to use and set up. There are also many added features with the digital interface to enjoy and the remote is very handy as well.
On a side note: For those with a taste for the tight, flat, frequency response of studio reference monitors (like the inherit sound of the Model 1 & 2), try leaving the EQ setting to "Always Off" which is the "Loudness" feature used for low volumes. When I first set up my Model 10, I thought they were too "boomy" as in too much loose, low end. With the combination of the long throw speakers, the EQ (Loudness) off and proper placement as described in the manual, these speakers sound tight and have a full, frequency range at any volume. This set up is most pleasing when listening to FM stations that "dynamically over compress" their audio signal.
Thank you Tivoli Audio for such an excellent product!
