I would like to know what radio you like the best for the office.. I will be using a pair of headphones with said radio (right now i have a pair of Bose Quiet comfort headphones).... i tried to do a quick google search but came up with nearly nothing of relevance... I will keep trying.


Thanks.

Alex, it isn't entirely clear what type of "radio" you're looking for. Is it something like this C.Crane item which is said to be somewhat like the old GE Superadio which I use.

John, i called spearitsound and they recommended a Tivoli. I wound up getting the product below.

I wanted something i could get the local classical station that would sound decent with my head phones. I found it quite hard to find a quality AM/FM radio. From what i have read on the internet about the company above, they are suppose to be pretty good...

Yes, the Tivolis are very good. If digital tuning is preferred, this one is nice.

Decided to give WRR a listen now. Playing some modernistic composition that I'm not familiar with.

Just when i've been looking around for something nicer than a standard, cheap plastic box for an alarm clock...

loving the idea of these Tivolis.

C'mon, JohnK, the analog tuner is WAY sexier!
