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.

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

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,...

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

Consumer review (ciao.co.uk)

BOSE Sound Wave is a FABULOUS piece of kit!

 

I was sceptical at first about the claims made of the sound quality of the Bose Sound Wave 3. Having a PIONEER Home Theatre system costing £1100 I considered that the Bose would not match up to this. Having to create space due to a house move I bought...

Compact. Great performance. Long 5 year warranty. Excellent after sales service

Single CD player. Consider that multi play should be provided for the cost

Bose Wave Music System

 

Its the best speaker I've ever bought. Its been proven itself to be durable, great sounding and portable, always giving whatever I ask it. I listen to contemporary Christian, some R&B, Instrumentals and hiphop. For what it is, the bass is incredible....
