Bose Wave Music System

 

The sound from the second-generation Bose Wave Music System CD-playing clock radio is much improved and plays half an octave lower.

The sound from the second-generation Bose Wave Music System CD-playing clock radio is much improved and plays half an octave lower. But there are no controls on the graphite-gray or platinum-white case; instead, you use a 26-button, credit card–size...

Bose Wave Music System

 

If you can deal with the high price, you'll get a sweet little tabletop music system.

Simple to set up and use; attractive design; improved sound; plays MP3 CDs; line-in support for other devices; 30-day trial period.

Expensive; no bass or treble control.

Bose's Wave Music System improves upon the original in both design and performance.

Overall, this is a very nice product, if it's within your budget. In fact, it's probably a bit overpriced when compared to the competition (check out similar products from Cambridge and Klipsch). But if you're a Bose fan and can justify the expense,...

Quality, quality sound, Sleek styling, Radio doesn't need antenna

It's expensive, Pretty basic set of features

If it was a few hundred dollars cheaper in price (ok, maybe less than half?), the Wave Music System could have ground for a much higher rating. It sounds fantastic, but at this price, it simply isn't justified.

Great upgrade over standard remote

 

I've had this remote for about a year and use it daily. I don't usually take it out of the stand. It's very well built and the range is incredible. You don't have to point it at the radio.
