Geneva Sound System Model S Giveaway

“Silver and gold, silver and gold, everyone wishes for silver and gold.” So sang that old snowman fellow in that one Christmas puppet cartoon. The TechTell family, in conjunction with the good folks at Geneva Lab, would like to grant that wish to one of you this holiday season via our Geneva Sound System Model S giveaway.

Amongst its numerous features, the Geneva Sound System Model S (which is valued at $299.95) includes an iPod/iPhone universal dock. Sadly, no iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5th gen support directly, but you can likely address that issue with a third-party wireless adapter or Lightning to 30-pin adapter.


The Geneva Sound System Model S offers superb musical fidelity and the most versatility in its class. It introduces innovations that make Hi-Fi easier and more eye-pleasing: TouchLight controls, a PowerDock connector for iPod/iPhone, and a digital clock radio. TouchLights brighten on contact, giving extensive iPod menu control no competitor provides. When the iPod/iPhone is removed the motorized PowerDock spins closed to protect it.

With its patented technology for true stereo imaging, wide frequency range, and exceptional audio qualities, many around the world have given the Model S the highest marks in its class. Winner of the 2010 I.D. International Design Magazine Consumer Products Award, the Model S comes with an optional table stand and a remote control.

Sounds pretty sweet, eh? And along with all of that, we’re giving away the limited edition gold version. How very festive!

Geneva Sound System Model S Giveaway

Full tech specs are available at the Geneva Lab website, but you can rest assured they justify the $299.95 prize value.

To enter, first read the Tell + Geneva Sound System Model S Giveaway Official Rules. Then, simply comment below to tell us what holiday song you’ll never play through them. There are some absolutely fantastic songs for the holiday season, but we want to know which ones are the worst. For me, it’s Barbara Streisand’s spastic version of “Jingle Bells,” but I’m not eligible to win, sadly.

Good luck, and happy holidays!

[Update: We forgot to include the cut-off the date! The last day for entries will be Sunday, December 9th.]

[Update: Removed link to wireless adapter, which is no longer being offered by Geneva.]

    If I hear Grandma Got runover one more time I may not be able to control the inner beast.

    I would really like to never hear “Christmas Shoes” by NewSong again as it is a completely depressing song during such a great time of the year.

    “All I want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. If I have to hear what Mariah Carey wants for Christmas one more time I may just go insane! The woman is good looking but the song is god awful!!! I really wouldn’t even care if she was singing the song to me! During the holiday season whenever I’m in a retail store and this song comes on I drop everything and head for the doors as fast as I can!!! This song will never flow through the speakers of MY GENEVA!
