Klipsch ifi

I would get the Klipsch ifi at Costco for $199.00. It totally blows away the Cambridge and Bose, both of which are overated. The ifi has a separate sub and two satellite speakers small enough for an AS. I would suggest checking it out. Trust me

Cambridge Soundworks

very compact. powerful and perfect for plugging into an Ipod. Almost invisible.

The stands for the satellite speakers conveniently slide into the seams between panels, can be pointed directionally to reflect off of curved areas and will turn any airstream into an expansive concert hall.

perfect solution.

This website has lots of info about audio systems. The comparative reviews are especially interesting. Here's a link to one comparing some of the newer iPod speaker systems:

I checked this system out last week. It's compact, and sounded great.

Tivoli two

A friend has a Tivoli and I liked the sound. Did a google search and this thread came to the surface pronto. Looks like a good recomendation for the Tivoli, and I like the 12V option. Unfortunatly Tivoli doubled the price on everything at the first of the year. Ok check out eBay and find one that had been painted white by the PO using a brush. Ugh! Got it for a decent price because of the paint. When it arrived I plugged it in and it checked out fine. Screw driver out, remove the innards, scrape the offending white paint off along with the factory applied black. Underneath is curly oak. Five coats of tung oil, reassemble and it looks and sounds great. Next test out to the Minuet. Oops, no AM reception inside, FM is just fine. Didn't think about the Al skin makeing a Faraday cage of sorts. Not a problem, the Tivoli works just fine on my book case in the office.

Now the question, has anyone solved the problem of AM reception using the Tivoli in their Airstream? I can see more of these little gems in my future if I can find them at the right price.

So I am looking for something portable that we can just carry in a drawer and play when 120v is available. We have a couple of Bose Wave radios in the house that have great sound but are pricey and I'm not sure how they travel. I know there are plenty of "boom boxes" available but I don't want something the size of a suitcase yet I want great sound and AM/FM. Not interested in i-Pod systems. Any brand name/model suggestions
Take a look at this system: Sony DAV-IS10 5.1-Channel Micro Satellite Home Theater System

You can run an AM lead outside your trailer, I ran ours out the base of a window.

Terry,

Did you remove the back to get access to the AM antenna? I was under the impression the exterior antenna hook up was only for FM.

That is correct. The AM antenna looks like the old-style winding like you would find in a very old transistor radio. They don't seem to exert a lot of effort on what they consider outmoded technology.

I am reviving this old post as I am considering the Tivoli model two for my Caravel. I was originally thinking of installing a car head unit, but I really like the Tivoli better. I have an outside antenna installed with the lead running inside. The question I have is how to hook up that lead to the Tivoli. The back of the Tivoli looks to be RG59 connector and the antenna has the male car audio connector. I can't find any converters. Is there a way to make this work? I haven't bought the Tivoli yet, as I want to find out if this will work. Maybe the supplied antenna is enough, but the outside antenna is there and I would like to use if it is possible. Anybody know?

Easy way, cut off the existing connector, and splice on the connector you need. On the antenna lead, not on the Tivoli!

Before I got my new 'Stream with the built-in car stereo I used a trash-picked (free) Altec-Lansing 2.1 computer speaker system from about 1999 or 2000 with an iPod. Imagine my surprise after retrieving it from the dumpster, getting it home, plugging it in and discovering it worked perfectly. Since it was free I never really worried about it being stolen and left it outside at my campsite often. I have used it to play Christmas music via Pandora at our office Christmas parties 2 years in a row. I am still using it as I am typing this post on my PC at work playing my iTunes. This thing really rocks! I can't believe someone just threw it out!
I know a couple who travel with their Bose Wave radio.
As an aside- I am wearing work uniforms (free to me) and free shoes, too...
