Tivoli Model 10 AM/FM Stereo Radio, 2011 Edition

Tivoli Model 10 AM/FM Stereo Radio, 2011 Edition

“The latest Model 10 also comes with a credit-card remote control that allows selection of the 5 presets, level and input control, and station scrolling. There are also Power, Mute, and Mono buttons.
