Tivoli Audio - UK suppliers?

Hope someone can help - I'm trying to get hold of a Tivoli Audio Model 10+ (the dab one) in walnut (which gets very good reviews)

http://tivoliaudio.co.uk/products/dab/model-10-dab-fm-clock-radio-walnut-silver.html

But Tivoli don't seem to have a UK distribution network, unless from them directly. Not currently available from Amazon etc. The price direct from Tivoli of £269 seems very high compared to US prices.

Anyone know who might stock them?

RE: Tivoli Audio - UK suppliers?

No idea, sorry.

If you are not 'wedded' to getting the Tivoli then Ruark Audio make the lovely R1 Deluxe (used to be Vita Audio*)...

http://www.ruarkaudio.com/products/r1-overview

...they are about £160.  DAB and FM.

Alarm facilities... 

"Easy-to-use clock and dual alarm functions with once, weekly, weekday and weekend settings Adjustable alarm volume"

Got 5 stars and a 2011 award from some mag Smile

It allows an external aerial connection.

I purchased my Tivoli in the United States and then just got a UK power pack for it - must have worked out cheaper, as otherwise would not have done it.

The Ruark looks like a good alternative - and if I remember rightly, Vita Audio is/was based in good ol' Southend-on-Sea? Also birthplace of my Rega turntable.

As an Essex swamps man myself, perhaps this should be the way to go.

Hi,

I had a conversation with them a couple of months back. If I remember rightly they have brought everything back in house and are currently reviewing their strategy for the UK. I think because it was sold "anywhere and everywhere" the product became devalued and I suspect one or two dealers weren't fulfilling their obligations. This isn't fact so apologies if I'm wrong Blum 3

I think the only place you will be able to source one is direct from them for the forseeable.

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

Yep, when they launched the Tivoli PAL+, the company announced it was no longer using distribution and would sell direct - both to consumers (via its website) and 'selected' retailers.

Not a lot of support at the moment.  I've been trying to get a response via email or phone from the numbers on the uk website without success for a problem with a Model 10+
