Regular readers will know we’re suckers for any technology in wood – after all, it does match the sideboard and that’s got to be a bonus. But when it looks and works like the Tivoli Networks radio, that’s even better.
The Networks covers all radio bases – DAB, FM or internet radio (via your home network connection), offering access to thousands of stations. It also offers USB connectivity for playing back your MP3s, a ‘virtual’ analogue clock, two independent alarms with sleep/snooze slimline remote control and a screen for all your station information.
High-end audio is a given, but you can also boost the set-up by adding a matching speaker (pictured), CD player and subwoofer. But that stylish wood finish and technology doesn’t come cheap – £495 for the radio alone in a choice of cherry, walnut or wenge finish.
