Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition

In 2000 the company Tivoli Audio was founded, the very first product being a classic radio, the Tivoli Audio Model One. On the occasion of this year’s 20th anniversary, the company has taken this solution into consideration and presents the Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition, produced in a very small edition.


The company Tivoli Audio Ltd. achieved a remarkable feat: they started with the aim to market consumer electronics solutions as lifestyle systems. As far as nothing extraordinary, the probably most successful product of the manufacturer would not be something as “banal” as a radio. We are talking about the Tivoli Audio Model One, which was in fact nothing more than a simple, compact radio, but which nevertheless achieved cult status. For umpteen years it was considered stylish, elegant and a real top seller.

Although the Tivoli Audio Model One has long been considered a timeless classic, it is no more than 20 years since it was launched. It was the first product of the Tivoli Audio company founded in Boston in 2020 by Tom DeVesto and Henry Kloss.

Over the years, Tivoli Audio has presented a variety of solutions, many of which were based on the Tivoli Audio Model One, and more recently, the latest generation was announced with the Tivoli Audio Model One+.

But now, as this year marks the 20th anniversary of Tivoli Audio, the “original” Tivoli Audio Model One has been commemorated with a very special limited edition, the Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition.

As the name suggests, the anniversary model is not quite the classic radio from Tivoli Audio from the year 2000, but rather the version which, in addition to an FM and MW tuner, also has Bluetooth, so that mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets can be easily integrated as a further source, i.e. the Tivoli Audio Model One BT.

The new Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition is still the classic FM and AM radio that has made the company so successful, with dimensions of 11.43 x 21.27 x 13.34 cm, it is extremely compact and focuses on what really matters.

This includes, above all, excellent reception, since the very beginning of one of the outstanding features of Tivoli Audio’s solutions. Another essential feature is of course the simple operation, three rotary encoders, that’s all the Tivoli Audio Model One had to offer, and that’s all the new Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition has to offer. First of all, there is the choice of source, with this rotary encoder acting as the main switch. There is also a rotary encoder for volume control, and of course a rotary encoder for channel selection. Another outstanding feature of Tivoli Audio around the Tivoli Audio Model One was its very good sound, and the new Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition is supposed to offer that as well. This is not only due to the broadband driver, but above all to the solid construction of the housing, which is made of metal at the front and rear and also of wood.

And this is exactly where the Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition differs from the conventional production model. The Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition features a particularly fine wooden cabinet with a walnut veneer finish and a high-gloss polished piano lacquer. This also applies to the aforementioned encoders, which are also made of high-gloss polished walnut wood. As if that wasn’t enough, as the crowning glory, there is a lettering on the top side that refers to the company’s anniversary year, executed in the form of a mother-of-pearl inlay.

As the product name clearly indicates, this anniversary model is to be available in a limited edition alone, with only 1,600 units of the Tivoli Audio Model One BT 20th Anniversary Limited Edition. So it is important to decide to buy it as soon as possible. At least the recommended retail price is quite moderate, as Tivoli Audio offers € 219,-.
