Tech review: New music system combines iconic style with modern technology |

If you’re using an iPhone, you can play music from a service of your choice, such as Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music, and Sirius / XM, and you can choose Model One as the music destination via AirPlay 2.

Android phones and tablets with integrated Google Chromecast can also play on the Tivoli from any music app.


With a small footprint and a single speaker, the Model One sounds great, but unless you’re really starving for space, it won’t fill your home with sound.

It’s the right size for a kitchen, office, or even a bedroom.

The wooden housing and the speaker design with rear connection ensure a full range of sounds. This means that there are openings on the back of the case to enhance the sound.

Be worth?

The Model One is a nice little self-contained speaker, but are the sound and features worth $ 349.99?

If you’re using the Model One on a Wi-Fi network with AirPlay 2 or Google Chromecast as part of a larger system, then these features could be worth the price.

However, if you are looking for a bluetooth speaker, especially one that isn’t tied to an outlet near an electrical outlet, it might be better to buy a nice, portable bluetooth speaker with a battery.
