Addressing the post about the bluetooth Tivoli models coming out soon, Dan writes:
Did you follow the link and read about the "BlueCon" Tivoli is foisting on consumers for $150? It is nothing more than a dressed up Bluetooth dongle. I purchased my Bluetooth dongle for $30 off Amazon. Tivoli was a good company back when Henry Kloss was associated with them but now their products are inferior and overpriced especially when compared to what Sangean offers.
I should also mention that I own two Tivoli Pal's and one Model One. I gave the Model One to a friend since the FM reception was ok but not outstanding. The two Pal's never did charge properly. After three years both Pals suffered from a wonky on/off.am/fm selector switch which you have to wiggle to get it playand now one Pal is completely dead.
The reception on my Sangean U3 is miles better in addition to being more powerful and reliable. There are so many better choices on the market now.
