Tivoli Audio PAL BT Bluetooth Portable Radio Overview
You can’t ask for a cuter companion than Tivoli’s PAL. The colorful, cheerful little radio with Bluetooth tech and take-along convenience makes listening to your favorite music or tuning in your favorite stations as easy as click-and-spin. It’s a little bit retro, a little bit modern – and behind it all is leading-edge technology. Tivoli Audio built a reputation on radios that deliver, and PAL performs. The sensitive and selective AM/FM tuner – analog, no less – pulls in distant stations with ease. Bluetooth streaming from phone or pad sounds better with the advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP in nerd shorthand) and enhanced data rate, alongside Tivoli’s trademark built-in equalization. Or go totally old school with the included analog input. A nickel-medal hydride battery pack plays for up to 16 hours on a 3-hour charge. And the three cool colors – Lucite green, deep ocean teal and anise flower – make this radio your personal PAL. Take it along or set it on a shelf; you’ll get surprisingly convincing music from a package little larger than a paperback.

Your Portable Audio Laboratory
That’s what PAL stands for, and indeed, reviewers have confirmed the experiment a success. TechCrunch, in its rave review, says, “If you’re in the market for a portable, powerful speaker with great sound, there’s nothing quite like it out there.” Let’s examine why.
Audio pioneer Henry Kloss, determined to bring high-fidelity performance to the world of compact portable and table radios, designed the Tivoli PAL. He started with the tuner – an afterthought in many high-end systems today, not to mention table radios. He incorporated innovative technology with high sensitivity and high selectivity, two attributes crucial to pulling in and picking out stations.
A great radio means little without a kicking little amp and speaker, and the PAL offers a 2-1/2 inch treated and shielded long-throw speaker with internal equalization. It throws an audio image bigger and more natural sounding than the size would suggest. And with a weather resistant case and long-wearing battery, your Pal can keep you company on your desk or by the pool.
Bluetooth tuned for tunes
The Pal’s BT circuitry is designed for stereo streaming, with advanced audio distribution profile and enhanced data rate, so your phone or pad sources sound great. The Pal’s Bluetooth range is some 30 feet. The environmentally friendly battery pack charges in a quick 3 hours and lasts up to 16 hours at moderate volume, for take-along convenience.
Twist and shout
In this modern world of touch screens and online assistants, there’s something warmly reassuring about a device that offers tactile feedback – and these elegant little switches and knobs hearken back to a far simpler time (and, frankly, may be far simpler to operate).
