>> Hi, I'm John Falcone, Senior Editor at CNET.com and this is the Tibally [assumed spelling] Audio Music System. This is a very high end table top radio cd player. Tibally Audio has made a lot of these models in the past and this is their new Flagship model. It comes in one of three colors, this is the beige walnut and it's primary attraction is just the really beautiful design. This actually is hand lacquered real wood cabinetry that just gives it a real luxurious high end look and feel. The front end is pretty straightforward. Just the over sized volume knob. We were a little disappointed that the buttons are kinda small and hard to distinguish. It has AM/FM radio and a slot loading cd player. It's also a dual function clock radio. Has the snooze button on top and a sleep function as well. While there's no iPod slot per say, it does have a auxiliary line in as well as a mix in. the sound was very good, but not quite the excellent we'd like to see on something of this price point. With such an expensive price, you'd expect something a little more than the beautiful design. This is the price of basically a Playstation 3 and all it is is a cd radio and alarm clock. That said, if you are looking for just a really luxurious table top cd radio system, the Tibally Audio Music System does fit the bill. I'm John Falcone for CNET and this is the Tibally Audio Music System. ^M00:01:44 [ Music ]
The Tivoli Audio iSongBook is attractively designed and offers decent features, but it should sound better at this price.
The high-quality sound and all-wood finish make the Tivoli Audio Networks an attractive Internet radio, but the high cost and design flaws may detour you from purchasing.
The Sony HT-ST7 is a visually stunning and well-featured sound bar, but it doesn't sound as good as you'd expect at its sky-high price.
The HP LP3065 has stellar performance, but its lack of adjustment features and connection options makes its high price difficult to swallow.
While the Nokia N97 is packed with features and offers the freedom of an unlocked phone, its clunky touch interface, sky-high price tag, and outdated operating system make it hard to recommend when there are better touch-screen smartphones on the market.
The Polk Audio miDock Studio sounds good enough, but it lacks many of the extra features found on similarly priced, competing iPod speaker systems.
The Sprint Music Store fits the bill if you're looking for instant gratification on the digital music front, but the $2.50-per-track price tag is hard to swallow.
It's great that Tivoli added Bluetooth streaming to its great little PAL radio, but its $300 price tag is excessive.
Sony's HT-CT100 soundbar/subwoofer audio system is a phenomenal value that sounds great with movies and music.
While not stereo, the iPod-friendly Tivoli Audio iPAL portable radio delivers full and rich sound.
