Alan Works (February 13, 2005): Tivoli Audio was created to offer you high quality, yet very simple and affordable audio equipment. Tom Devesto, a distinguished audio-pioneer and founder of Tivoli once said: "The Model One Table Radio is so impressive, that I created Tivoli Audio just to sell it". The Model One is so successful because of it's improved tuner technology made by Henry Kloss, with whom Devesto worked for over 30 years.

History[contribute]

Jamie Franks(June 6, 2008): Henry Kloss briefly went into retirement in 1996, but soon found himself co-founding another company, Tivoli Audio, with long-time associate and former Cambridge SoundWorks co-founder Tom DeVesto. There, he made the Model One (mono) and Model Two (stereo) table radios using MOSFET technology to increase selectivity; they have elements similar in appearance to his legendary KLH Model Eight radio mentioned earlier. The high-quality tuner combined with a good speaker arrangement led some reviewers to call these modern radios "Bose killers." However, the Cambridge SoundWorks Model 88 had used some similar technology, leading to a lawsuit between Cambridge and Tivoli Audio.

Kloss continued to work on other projects until his death in 2002 of a subdural hematoma. His home was sold to new owners, with the basement reportedly still full of Kloss' own personal electronics lab equipment, accumulated over a lifetime. The equipment was discarded as salvage.
