In a nostalgic nod to the past meshed with the conveniences of modern technology, Tivoli Audio has reimagined the portable music experience with the relaunch of its SongBook series, nearly two decades after the original made its debut. In an era dominated by digital streaming, the new SongBook Bluetooth sound systems stand out, not only for their name that resonates with melodic allure but also for their design that pays homage to the tactile joy of music listening from bygone days.
Paul DePasquale, the visionary Designer and CEO behind Tivoli Audio, draws deeply from his personal reservoir of memories to infuse the SongBook with genuine affection for the audio devices of the 1970s and 1990s. His aim was clear and resonates with those who remember the tactile satisfaction of pressing play, adjusting the volume, or tuning the radio by hand. “I wanted the product to feel like something I would have loved to have growing up in the 90s,” DePasquale shares, encapsulating the essence of what makes the SongBook more than just a speaker, but a bridge to cherished moments.
The SongBook’s design invites users to step back in time while enjoying the convenience and quality of modern audio technology. With its physical buttons and sliders, the SongBook offers an interactive experience that screens and touch interfaces simply can’t replicate. The joy of flipping a switch or turning a knob has a tangible pleasure to it, a reminder of the days when interacting with our gadgets was a more deliberate act.
Equipped with features like Bluetooth 5.3, a durable build, and impressive sound quality, the SongBook and SongBook MAX do not skimp on performance. Whether it’s the compact SongBook, perfect for on-the-go tunes, or the SongBook MAX, with its deeper bass and richer sound, these speakers are designed to meet the needs of today’s listeners while still capturing the essence of yesteryear.
Available in two stylish finishes, cream/brown and glossy green, the SongBook series is not only a feast for the ears but also for the eyes. With a price point of 9.99 for the SongBook and 9.99 for the SongBook MAX, these speakers are an investment in quality audio and a nod to the enduring appeal of retro design.
In a world where digital often dominates, the SongBook series by Tivoli Audio stands out as a testament to the enduring power of nostalgia, design, and the universal language of music. As DePasquale puts it, the aim was to recapture a “familiar joy in user experience, which is simple and fun.” This philosophy is palpably woven through every aspect of the SongBook, offering not just a way to listen to music, but to connect with it on a deeper, more personal level.
