Product Description

Our best all-in-one music system is now even better. The Acoustic Wave® music system ll offers more lifelike sound for larger spaces, with improved functionality and versatility, yet remains refreshingly simple to use. Acclaimed waveguide speaker technology still lies at the heart of this system's performance, so it rivals the sound of much larger, more complicated stereos. An all-new Bose digital platform fine tunes the sound for more accurate, consistent music reproduction-even at louder volume levels. Vocals sound cleaner. Instruments ring truer. The result comes closer to music in a natural, live-performance setting. The Acoustic Wave® music system ll plays your home-burned CDs as well as regular discs and AM/FM radio. You'll find a new headphone jack for private listening, auxiliary inputs and an updated informational display. A variety of accessories adds to your listening enjoyment at home or on the go. And you can add our optional 5-CD changer for even more continuous listening. The system hasn't changed in size or convenience. It still fits almost anywhere in your home, easily controlled from across the room by a credit card-sized remote. It accomodates your MP3 player, travels easily and goes portable with the optional power pack. The original Acoustic Wave® music system changed opinions of what a quality stereo system could be. Now, the Acoustic Wave® music system ll challenges our perceptions once again, with sound that comes even closer to the essence of live performance.

The Bose gives good loud base-treble balance but it will never equal a heavy amped system's throbbing bass sound.

If you like your music to sound as if the orchestra or vocalist is in the room or outdoors with you this system is perfect.

Too bad Bose can't keep up with the world and put an HD radio in it -- the Acoustic Wave hasn't changed in 11 years.

After a few years - say, five - it doesn't play some CDs - and Bose has a very casual view of my complaints. To send it to Bose and have it repaired, including S&H from here to there,is, as I recall, more than $250. So again and after three years - or so - it is choicy about what it wants to play. I was asked if I play copied disks - sure, sometimes. But it too often doesn't play the Real Stuff.

I have a boom box from Walmart,for cryin' out loud, that'll play anything. DO NOT BUY BOSE - and I did buy from Bose twice. Bose does not support its buyers except to argue with them - okay, me - and charges so much that there's no point in buying what they're offering.

An addendum: I NOW HAVE A STACK OF CDs - MAYBE 8" HIGH - ALL OF THEM COMMERCIALLY SOLD THAT I SHALL HAVE TO PLAY ON THE CHEAPY BECAUSE I'M TOO IMPECUNIOUS TO PLAY THE BOSE GAME YET AGAIN.

I WOULDN'T TRUST ANY BOSE PRODUCT AT THIS POINT INCLUDING WHAT USED TO BE (AND STILL ARE?)EXCELLENT SPEAKERS.

I have had the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System 2 for about 2 years and find it amazingly versatile and with rich true sound and clarity. If you want sound that is true to life as in natural instrumentation and natural voice this system can't be beaten. If you are looking for the electronically "enhanced" bass that shakes your neighbors three doors "or cars" down this is not your boom box. If you like your music to sound as if the orchestra or vocalist is in the room or outdoors with you this system is perfect. Whether it is radio, CD, MP3, or your Ipod, your music will sound great. With the optional case and battery pack you will have a great system by the pool or to accompany your gardening, etc. The only improvement, in my opinion, would be a display in front as in the Wave Radio instead of on top.. but you are usually too far away from this system to be able to read it anyway. Put on an MP3 or a favorite playlist on your Ipod and enjoy the incredible sound.

I've owned the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System II for the past 5 years, and although I have no complaints about the way it performs, I believe that it's way overpriced. Prior to owning this unit, we owned the original Bose Acoustic Wave Machine. When we purchased the original version, it was priced similar to what this one is priced at. At the time, and even when I purchased this one, I felt that the price was justified for the high quality performance that the system delivered. My feeling is that the high price of the original unit, as well as this one when it was first released, was justified because of the years and years of research that Bose put into the design of such a marvelous device. Now, since it's been almost 30 years since the original version was first produced, Bose should realize that prices for electronics have come down. The Acoustic Wave music system ll is very similar to the original version. The way I look at it is this. If you purchase a High Definition TV today, you'll end up paying about 75% less than you paid for a similar TV just 6 years ago, yet the TV you buy today will be a lot better. The same applies to most consumer electronics. With the Bose Acoustic Wave music system ll, you're basically getting the same thing that you would have, had you purchased the device when it was first introduced back in the 1980's. Yes, there have been some improvements and additions, but none that would justify the price being kept so artificially high.

There is no question that the performance of the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System II is phenomenal. Compared with much larger systems with separate speakers, the Bose performs admirably. On this scale, it definitely deserves 5 stars.

I bought this 3 years ago, I like classical music. This has an exellent sound for its small body when you play it very loud. For our 1500 square foot condo, this is away too much. I regret I didn't buy the wave 1.....
Now, bose has many features to accomodate the trends, please check their HP to learn before you order at Amazon.

I bought a Bose Acoustic Wave ten years ago -- right after Bose upgraded the unit by replacing the old slider controls on top with electronic ones and included a remote. The single tray CD player on top was perfect for what I wanted it for -- a simple to operate, decent sounding stereo for my wife. She is not comfortable operating the main stereo in our house, so for when I'm not at home and she wants to play her swami-candle-chime-hippie CD's, she can easily do so. We use it as, basically, a kitchen radio. It excels at that. Easy to turn on and off, get the news and traffic while gulping down the morning coffee, play in the background when eating at the table etc.

As far as its sonic quality, you know what they say: "No highs, no lows -- it must be Bose."

Don't get me wrong -- it's the greatest portable radio ever built. If you ever have to listen to radio for a long time, you'll be a lot happier listening on this than any other self-contained radio on the market. Too bad Bose can't keep up with the world and put an HD radio in it -- the Acoustic Wave hasn't changed in 11 years. If you don't need the radio, you might be better off with the $600 Bose Sound Dock -- the one with the woofer built in. It'd be a lot cleaner looking sitting on your shelf than the not-so-small Acoustic Wave, and you wouldn't have to have a separate iPod dock sitting next to it. Besides the news and traffic, why would anybody listen to a radio anymore?

All in all, the Acoustic Wave is OK if you need to play music loud at a party. For a kitchen radio, it's overkill. For an audiophile, it's water torture.
