Great sound without multiple components and ganglia of wires


There is a puzzling range — all the way from one-star to five-star — epinions about the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System II. I'm not sure the 2009 product is the same as the 2001, but the one that I got as an early Christmas present last month ...

sound, compactness

can't adjust treble/bass

This Wave Delivers A Great Ride


I had always wanted a Bose system ever since I heard one. I had first heard the orginal system years ago and thought it was great. I am astonished by the improved  even better sound of the new Bose Acustic Wave II (17817391207) Shelf System. 

I love the system

The system  is a lot of money, but it is worth it

Fortunately for Bose, P. T. Barnum's Old Assertion Still Holds True Today


You remember P. T. Barnum, the famous showman behind the Barnum & Bailey Circus. He once asserted, "There's a sucker born every minute." That Bose can get away with selling their mediocre-at-best Acoustic Wave system for around $1,000 is a testament to...

Looks nice

Incredibly poor performance for the price

The little sound system that did (for $1,000)


Having used the Bose Acoustic Wave System for almost 3 years now, I can honestly say that it is the best one-piece system that I have ever listened to. At a price of around $1,000 though, it is a considerable amount to pay for any system, and it is...

Quality sound, very compact system, easy to use

Expensive; can get better sound from 5 speaker system

Consumer review by:

Nothing compares


The Bose Acoustic Wave System is a complete and compelling stereo unit that delivers sound quality that rivals almost any non-professional system on the market. It's design is simple and almost perfect. No need to play with an equalizer to get the best...

Incredibly rich sound, simple operation, small but complete

Not the best looking piece of equipment on the market, a bit expensive

Is it Live or is it Bose?---Bose Acoustic Wave Music System


Well, it's been three days and I have turned it up and I have turned it down. I have blasted my home with Megadeth and soothed myself with Wolfgang. I've twanged and fiddled and listened to a Fender or two and even detected the harmonious sound of a...

compact, rich, full, realistic sound, quality shines through

costly---nothing more

Bose Acoustic Wave - Amazing Sound


I bought this product because I had heard it was a great sounding, compact unit. After I plugged it in and tried the demo CD, I was really amazed how much bass it had and how well it spread the sound. The demo CD contained nothing but real high-quality...

great sound; no distortion even at 100% volume

a bit expensive, single-CD player

Not quite worth the money, but still very high quality!


My wife and I recieved one of these wonderful contraptions from her father for our wedding present and we have enjoyed it ever since. The unit produces high quality sound which does actually sound much better than the average, run-of-the-mill radio off...

good quality sound

price tag is more than you should pay for this quality

Consumer review by:

Come ride the wave


I love this stereo the sound quality and the number of stations you pull in is great. At first I didnt think the wave radio was worth $1000, I thought there were so many more that we less expensive that could give the same quality as the wave radio,...

Great sound quality

BOSE Wave Radio: Review from a novice


First of all, I'll state up front that I'm not an audio expert. My only personal sound requirements are decent bass, good volume, and not too much treble. I don't like rattling speakers, either. Those requirements met, I'm a happy camper.

Husband acts happy about purchase

I can't tell the difference
