There’s no shortage of selection when it comes to Bluetooth speakers and headphones. Of course, that means companies have to figure out how to stand apart from the crowded market and it looks like Tivoli Audio is doing just that with their new Go collection and additions to their ART collection.
The new products are making their debut at High End Munich this week and include a portable Bluetooth speaker called the Andiamo and true wireless Bluetooth earbuds dubbed Fonico in their new Go collection. New to the company’s ART collection, which allows you to customize with artsy looking Wi-Fi enabled speakers, are the Model CD Wi-Fi CD Player and Music System Home & Music System Digital all-in-one music system.
“We’re very excited to debut Tivoli Audio’s 2018 lineup of new products at High End Munich,” said Paul DePasquale, Chief of Product Design and Brand Development. “The Andiamo Bluetooth speaker and Fonico earbuds make it easy to enjoy Tivoli Audio’s signature sound and quality design wherever you are, and we look forward to expanding our ART collection even further this fall.”
Meaning “let’s go” in Italian, the Andiamo is encased in a durable black or silver aluminum housing and features a premium Italian leather carrying strap. The compact Bluetooth speaker offers up to 20 hours of playback time and loud, dynamic sound. Shipping this June, the Andiamo has an MSRP of $199 USD.
True wireless earbuds are becoming more popular and Tivoli Audio is jumping into the fray with the Fonico earbuds which include a portable charging case with up to nine hours of recharge time. Compatible with iOS and Android, the Fonico earbuds also feature automatic stereo pairing, are IPX7 rated and will retail for $129 USD when they start shipping in September.
Perhaps more unique are the additions to the ART collection. The Model CD is a bit of an interesting product given today’s penchant for streaming music from online services. A standalone Wi-Fi CD player that is finished in Tivoli’s signature wood cabinet design, the Model CD has a touchscreen LED light plate for easy playback control. The Model CD can be connected wirelessly to speakers within the ART collection or connected to a receiver or stereo system with its stereo line output. Available in September, pricing has yet to be released but it will be available in walnut, white, and black.
Finally, the Music System Home takes its retro design cues from 1960s furniture design and it is quite something to behold, at least in design. While the design may be retro, the system is equipped with FM, DAB+ (supported countries), Bluetooth, CD, Wi-Fi, an Ethernet jack, line output, line input, and Alexa voice assistance. The four-channel amplifier offers powerful sound with the two 3 1/2-inch full range drivers and two 3/4-inch tweeters. For those not needing Wi-Fi or Alexa, the Music System Digital will also be offered. Both devices will be available in walnut, white, or black wood with Danish made Gabriel fabric. Also available in September, pricing of the Music System Home and Music System Digital have yet to be announced.
