Tivoli Audio is back with a refreshing addition to its Art Generation speaker line. The company has introduced the Model Two Digital, a design-driven tabletop streaming speaker that combines modern connectivity with a versatile form factor. As we transition into the autumn season, Tivoli Audio offers a compelling option for those seeking high-quality audio experiences within the comfort of their homes.
One of the biggest improvements of the Model Two Digital is its versatility in positioning. Unlike its predecessor, the Model One Digital, which had a traditional tabletop orientation, the Model Two Digital can be placed either horizontally or vertically. This flexibility allows users to seamlessly incorporate it into any room, making it a dynamic decor piece that enhances the ambiance.
The design of the Model Two Digital exudes sophistication. Weighing in at 5 pounds and measuring 5.1 x 9.9 x 6.2 inches, this speaker boasts a brushed aluminum grill with an ionized finish, replacing the previous fabric front. This not only adds to its aesthetic appeal but also simplifies maintenance, as it is easier to clean.
Paul DePasquale, the Designer & CEO of Tivoli Audio, said: “When creating the Model Two Digital, we wanted to create a streaming speaker that not only offered the latest wireless audio solutions but a sleek modern design that felt instantly classic. With two ways to display the model and three-color options, we created a speaker that will live seamlessly in your home, offering high-quality performance and intuitive form factors.”
While Tivoli Audio has embraced modern design, it has retained the wood veneer cabinet, which has been a hallmark of the brand. The Model Two Digital supports both Bluetooth 5.2 (SBC and AAC) and WiFi (AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in), making it compatible with various streaming services, including Spotify Connect, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Tidal Connect, Deezer, Pandora, TuneIn, and many others.
Additionally, it features a 3.5mm aux input, enabling users to connect external sources such as a preamp-enabled turntable.
Audio enthusiasts will appreciate the Model Two Digital's exceptional sound quality. Equipped with a 3.5-inch full-range driver and a .75-inch tweeter, this speaker delivers immersive audio that fills the room with clarity and precision. The controls are conveniently managed via a smart device, with a single sleek dial handling functions like power, source selection, and volume adjustment, accompanied by an elegant LED strip displaying the speaker's status.
The Model Two Digital is available in three stylish finishes: walnut/gold, white/silver, and black/black. It can be pre-ordered now at a retail price of $449, with shipments expected to commence in November.
