The PAL BT Bluetooth Portable Radio in Glossy Red/White pairs new age technology with old-school functionality. It features a simple interface, room-filling sound and Bluetooth connectivity for Bluetooth-enabled devices.
After turning the radio on, the sensitive AM/FM tuner handles station identification, and pours music through the 2.5" speaker. Clear hi-fidelity sound, just like portable AM/FM radios of the past. But then it gets new school.
The PAL BT (PAL stands for Portable Audio Laboratory, not the European video standard) also allows you to stream audio wirelessly through the integrated Bluetooth receiver, which uses advanced A2DP technology for high quality wireless audio. The PAL BT also features FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) - usually lauded by RC model car enthusiasts as the best technology to hit the market in the last five years - which narrows the frequency across the spectrum in short "hops" instead of a single signal, thereby intercepting and eliminating interference from other devices on the 2.4GHz band. What you get is an almost interference-free Bluetooth experience.
Another new school feature - the NiMH rechargeable battery pack that provides anywhere from twenty minutes to several hours of audio listening enjoyment (volume levels and other factors will decrease battery playback time). The eco-friendly battery pack has no "memory" so it can be charged at any time in the battery's life cycle, and fully charges in about 3 hours.
Along with FHSS, this model features an auxiliary input and stereo headphone output just in case you want to go old school with your peripherals, like a connected iPod or coil-connected large-earpad headphones. The standard 30' reception range for Bluetooth and device pairing functionality is present here as well.
A simple AM/FM radio with technological muscle is what makes the Tivoli PAL BT Bluetooth Portable Radio a must have for the beach, family room or anywhere that you want clear sound and the flexibility of wireless connectivity.
- New Age Technology
- With the addition of Bluetooth wireless technology, when you're not listening to the world-famous analog AM/FM tuner, you can listen to music stored on your Bluetooth wireless technology-enabled device. You'll hear your music through the Model One BT thanks to Bluetooth wireless technology's advanced A2DP profile, combined with the Model One BT's trademark equalization.
- Old School Functionality
- You won't have to dig out an audio cable for your enabled-device every time you want to listen to your music through the Model One BT. But don't worry, the Auxiliary input is still on board, along with the record/headphone output, so you can continue to connect those "old fashioned" wired devices.
