"the portable tivoli?"on by oluv
Pros nice sound in a small box
Cons sound distorts quickly, too expensive
Summary i bought the ipal because i love the sound of my tivoli model one and i wanted something portable for the garden powered with battery. unfortunately the sound is not that rich and full when compared to the model one, but it is ok given the size of this little box. the battery seems to last forever. i had it 2 days at work and it still runs from the same charge.
the biggest drawback is that the ipal distorts very quickly, as soon as you turn up the volume quite a bit. it cannot deal well with bass-heavy music and you can hear distortion easily. i would have liked it to get a little louder than this without any distortion. it is not loud enough so that i still cannot use it for my garden-party, but rather have to use my model one, pass some wires and power it with current.
the price is much to high for what one gets. tivoli should think that over.

Pros Great sound, tuner is super
Cons mono only sound is about it.
Summary I've had the ipal for several years and cannot say enough good things about it. The battery lasts forever (several days...). The sound is great and full bodied. The tuner is better than the $2000 Denon receiver I have, pulling is more stations. Mine is black and the outer housing has worn off a bit on the edges, nothing serious, but about the only ding I can think of. Worth every penny (and it's a lot of pennies for a radio only). If you care about good sound this is the one to get.
"Good Sound"on by proliab
Pros Fills my office up with my iPod music. Sound is so good that I don't really notice that its mono. Its sounds better than the competiing stereo protables.
Cons Price is high, but the sound is worth it.
Pros Sounds good, well built, direct line in or use with FM transmitter
Cons wish it came with a case
Summary I have been using my iPal for about 6 months including a 1500 mile road trip on my Harley. I love that the sound is so rich and full(relative to it's size). It is well built and very functional. I like using it on the road in hotels and in the back yard. I even used it with my FM transmitter and it pulled the signal in very well. It sounds significantly better and is much sturdier than the Altec Lansing In Motion device
Pros simpile controls, sleek design, best tuner ive seen
Cons only a mono, the sound may not be loud enough for some
Summary the reason i went for the ipal was because i saw it in tweeter and fell in love. the simple design and digital tuner went beautifly with the ipod. the portability of it was also attractive. i could take it to drive-ins, and all over the place. th e tuner really stands out to me as getting awsome reception. a few monthes after i bought my ipal, my dad bought a wave radio by bose and that was consiterably bigger, no battery, and is a stagering $300. this radio, however, was teh closeest thing i could find to compare the tuner to. on the back, the imputs are also simple. three plugs, in a line, with rubber stoppers to keep the water out. the power cord, aux line, and a 1/8' headphone jack. this isnt your typical stero, its more for audiophiles and music enthusiasts.
Thanks for your submission!
