Tivoli’s Model One Digital is a retro radio with Sonos-like smarts

Spotify Connect and multi-room abilities from a wood-wrapped cube of cool

As great as a Sonos Play:1 is, it’s not a speaker that’s exactly oozing with character. The £279 Tivoli Model One Digital, though? That’s a class act encased in furniture-grade wood available in three colours. A proper aerial and FM tuner mean there’s analogue sound to go with the lovely analogue looks, but this is not a device that’s chained to the past. DAB and Bluetooth are part of the package, as are Deezer, TuneIn, Tidal and Spotify – the latter via Spotify Connect should that be your style. You can even take the retro action multi-room by adding super-cute Tivoli ART speakers.

Tom is a nerd. A gaming nerd, a home cinema nerd, a hi-fi nerd and a car nerd. And a bit of a bike nerd, and phone nerd, and computer nerd. Let's call the whole thing off and just go with all-round nerd. In the past he's been an audio book actor, a games tester, a chocolate salesman and a teacher in Japan. Then he joined What Hi-Fi? as a reviewer back in 2007 and moved to Stuff as Reviews Editor in 2011. After a five-year stint on Stuff he rejoined the What Hi-Fi? team where he currently rules the reviews team with a candy floss fist.
