The Wave music system III: Added features and functionality


A system that grows with you

The system's versatility is right in tune with the ways we get our music today. There's a built-in FM/AM radio and CD player for standard and home-burned MP3 CDs. With custom system packages, you can also enjoy music from your iPod or iPhone--even your computer, tablet or any Bluetooth device. This system adapts to all your musical needs, and endures because of its unmatched sound.


The Bose technology difference

This sound, from prominent lows to crystal-clear highs, is the result of unique Bose innovations working together. Proprietary waveguide speaker technology combines with other Bose technologies to deliver performance well beyond the speakers' size.


Waking up has never been easier

With custom accessories, the system can play your iPod, smartphone or any Bluetooth device

One of the best things about getting up in the morning is not getting up...right away. We've made snoozing easier than ever. When the alarm or music comes on, just tap the top of your Wave music system III. No remotes to locate, no buttons to press. So easy, you can do it in your sleep.

And dual independent alarms let early birds rise without having to reset the wakeup time for a late-sleeping partner.


Simplicity by design

The Wave music system III is meant to be enjoyed right out of the box. Just plug it in and you're ready to go. Its sleek appearance is uninterrupted by buttons--the invisible touch-top controls supplement the convenient slim remote. There's a 3.5 mm (1/8") auxiliary input for your MP3 or other portable player, and a headphone jack for keeping the music to yourself.

Let me start by saying that I am not a Bose "Hater". I own two. I bought my first "radio"
only model somewhere around 15 years ago and is still going strong in my shop. I bought my
second one with CD around 8 years ago, and was faithful up until 3 weeks ago. The radio just
conked out and died. I ain't complaining though, 8 years is a pretty good run. (My original
is still kicking perfectly though. Guess they don't make them like they used to!)

Which brings me here today. Looking to replace my dead one, I was pretty much floored to see
that Bose is still commanding a $500 price tag for 2004 technology. Yes, it sounds good.
Yes, it sounds VERY good, but at $500 this is bordering on craziness. And don't believe those
who say it can compete with a component stereo. It simply can't. They either need validation
and feel-goodness for their purchase, or they are whacko. Gotta be one or the other. Again,
I'm not here to crap on Bose. If your stuck on the brand name, and have a $500 wad burning
a hole in your pocket for decade old technology, then have at it. You will have a very good
sounding Radio and CD player. But after my 3 weeks of OCD analyzing, listening, reading,
searching, listening again, this is what I've came to the conclusion of. It's my opinion
only, so take it as that, but if it helps anyone out there, your welcome.

1. If you techno savvy, and up to date on the latest and greatest, then there's pretty much
no replacing the Sonos PLAY:5 All-in-One Wireless Music Player with 5 Integrated Speakers (S5, Black)
music system for $399.

I bought this system through the Bose website because they offer a 90 day no questions asked return policy which includes shipping, PLUS 6 month zero percent financing, so I could try it out and only put up a hundred bucks to decide if I want to keep it. The first thing I thought when I saw the different options were that the prices are RIDICULOUS. For one of these guys without the CD player, it's 350 bucks. You add a simple decades old technology CD player, and they bump it up 150 dollars. Insane. However, if you don't listen to CDs and use your iPhone or MP3 player to listen to the majority of your music, you can get the CD playerless model, and add bluetooth connectivity for 100 bucks, which totals 450 for the system. I opted to go for this model, partly because I can always add bluetooth later but can't add the CD, and because I buy most of my music through amazon and it's all burnable to MP3 format, so I have CDs with over 120 songs on them in alphabetical order that I listen to in my car, and it's a huge bonus that they all work on this CD player.

So, moving along... Unpacking and getting it up and playing is as easy as the listing said it would be. Take the cord, plug it into the unit, and plug the other side into the wall, and voila- you're ready to go. One thing that I want to mention is that this does not come with an FM/AM antenna included, but the instruction manual says that you can plug one in, so that's something you may want to consider if you're living in the boonies or out in the middle of BFN. The unit uses the power cord as the antenna, and the manual states that the cord should be straight to get optimal results, but I haven't really had any problems with getting the stations I want to listen to, so it might be YP, but not MP.

Verified Purchase
I thought I had already reviewed this purchase. My first attempt didn't publish, but I thought the second attempt had, well anyway ...
I LOVE THIS MUSIC SYSTEM! I can't get over the incredible sound that comes out of a system of this size. On some of my CDs the sound is better than on my living room stereo system. This unit is placed in my bedroom and whether I'm playing the radio or a CD or MP3, I have absolutely no complaints regarding the sound. The "bottom" (bass line) is incredible!! I love the ease of turning the unit on or off (soft touch to the top), but I will probably purchase the Wave III premium backlit remote soon. Not because I dislike the "credit card-sized" remote that comes with the unit, but because if I misplace it - it's doubtful but it could happen - I could only use the radio if it was the last feature that I was playing before turning the unit off (and I couldn't change the radio station). You have to have a remote to switch between playing the radio, CDs, or any other audio/video auxilliary equipment connected to the unit. You can't change the radio stations, or move forward or backward in the CD's tracks, set either of the two alarms, change the factory settings for certain features, etc., without a remote control!
I've had the music system for over a month and I consider it money very well spent. I've already raved enough about it that I convinced a relative to buy one. (He said he had intended to buy the system but wanted to get a review from another "audiophile" who's opinion he trusted.) I didn't have to purchase a FM antenna, and my AM stations sound better than they do via the tuner on my living room stereo system!
