The Tivoli Audio Story
Tivoli Audio was founded by Tom DeVesto and Henry Kloss in 2000 in Boston, MA. Kloss was by then an icon of audio engineering and design, while DeVesto brought the experience of management positions at Advent Corporation and Kloss Video and as the co-founder of Cambridge Sound Works.
DeVesto's goal was to create beautifully designed, simple-to-use and high-quality audio products to consumers. Since then, Tivoli Audio has expanded from high-end radios to include radio accessories, hi-fi systems, iPod players, etc., and has established an affiliate in the UK.

All Tivoli Audio products are made in the US, in the Tivoli Audio factory.
A Fun Fact About Tivoli Audio
Before he passed away in 2002, Henry Kloss designed many of the radios that still provide the foundation of Tivoli Audio's catalog. Kloss also achieved many other firsts in audio engineering and design. In 1954, he collaborated with Edgar Villchur in the design of the first commercial acoustic suspension loudspeaker. As the founder of Advent Corp., Kloss oversaw the release of the first high fidelity cassette deck in 1971 and the first large screen projection television for home use in 1972.
