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.

I've owned two Bose Wave Radios, the original & the Wave II single CD "system". They were excellent radios with good sound. I always thought they are were overpriced so I never bought one factory new. I got my first one off eBay in eBay's early history for $150 and my second one in 2004 for $200. Both were like-new condition & included the original box & paperwork. They were expensive gifts the sellers never used.

I really liked the original Wave Radio, using it the last few years (late 1990s-2004) as a sound system for my tower PC. The only reason I sold it and bought the newer Bose is I thought I wanted the built-in CD player. It was a top load single CD player. I was disappointed with the Wave II. Unlike my first Wave radio, I thought the CD model had far too much bass. The first Bose seemed perfectly set for the variety of music I enjoy, Blues, Smooth Jazz, Classical,Classic Rock. The sensor quickly detected the type of music and the presets for each genre were excellent. The second CD Bose radio sounded like it had the same settings for all types of music. It also lacked the power of the first and its capacity for playing CDs was very limited. I never used it much and wanted my old Bose back. I had better sounding boom boxes.

I tried out the Bose III and decided I definitely have no interest in what in my opinion has become a very hyped, grossly overpriced, small but excessively heavy clock radio-CD player. By the way, I easily found several sweet spots for the first wave radio. I never found a sweet spot for the Wave II. No matter where I placed it we heard the same dull, excessive bass sound. Even for talk radio and news broadcasts we much prefered our much cheaper CCrane Radio ($150) and my GE Superradio II ($59).
