Teufel RADIO ONE: the hi-fi clock radio


‘Waking up never sounded so good’, says Teufel about its new hi-fi clock radio. And that eases the pain of leaving a warm bed on a cold morning a little.

No one is crazy about alarm clock radios. After all, they brutally deprive us of our refreshing sleep. So it’s time for a true hi-fi radio alarm clock that announces the end of sleep, but does so with top quality, easy-to-use and great sound. And it looks good doing it, too,’ says Germany’s Teufel.

A concert on your bedside table

When we hear the word alarm clock radio, we quickly think of tinny sound that goes through marrow a bone or nervous alarm tones with the charm of a fire alarm. ‘Fortunately, with the RADIO ONE, Teufel offers a solution to abrasive sounds that spoil your morning mood. Two slightly side-firing 2-inch full-range drivers and a large passive diaphragm at the rear provide top-quality sound. RADIO ONE adds Dynamore technology, developed by Teufel in Berlin, to transform your bedside table into a true concert stage,’ the manufacturer says.

A great reception

The RADIO ONE offers both classic FM radio and digital radio via DAB+. For each of these reception options, three preferred stations are available. A clever detail is the wire antenna, which Teufel has hidden almost invisibly in the bottom of the device. Users who like to control what they hear can stream their favorite music via Bluetooth from a smartphone or tablet or connect a sound carrier to the mini-jack input.

Functions for everyday use

All major functions can be controlled directly via buttons on the front of the clock radio. Users can choose between two different alarms and a sleep timer as well as bluetooth, FM and DAB+. The brightness of the extra large display behind the dust cover can be adjusted individually. Various settings are also available for the operating mode and standby mode. For example, it is possible to set the light of the display especially low at night or even to turn itself off. The alarms are also individually adjustable: one-time, daily, weekdays or weekends. The one-time alarms can be set for a specific date. This – the Berliners report – comes in handy if you have to get up especially early. In this way you can set the alarm days in advance.

Waking up to the sound of Berlin

If you don’t feel like being woken up early in the morning by absurdly cheerful disc jockeys, you can choose one of the four alarm tones. One of these is the special alarm tone “Berlin”. Residents and fans of the German capital will immediately recognize the source of inspiration for this alarm tone: the chimes of the Gedächtniskirche. The employees of Teufel are well acquainted with the melody for nine bells composed by Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia. In fact, Teufel’s office is located right across the street from Berlin’s iconic church.

Price and availability

The Teufel RADIO ONE is available immediately in Black and Light Gray versions for a price of 169.99 euros via the manufacturer’s website.
