Just Okay...Not Spectacular- Over priced,
This review is from: Bose Wave Music System III (Electronics)
Needed a new radio for my livingroom and wanted a quality, small sound system.
this Bose Wave Radio III had many of the features I was looking for except for two things, no integrated iPod/iPhone connection and the price was a little higher than I wanted to pay. I purchased the Bose Ipod dock separatley for $99
None the less I brought it and am happy with some of the sound and quality. The remote control seems cheap and could be an issue if you use the radio/player a lot (buttons might wear out sooner - seems they could have added some extra buttons on the radio itself - not just only rely on the remote).
There is the touch power off/on feature which is nice feature. It plays MP3 disks and regular music CDs. The sound was only good. I had to turn the volume way up to get a decent tones and sounds from my music CDs do need some volume to get the best sound, this system did not perform as I would have expected. I eventually moved it to my bedroom which is smaller. That's the only way I was able to get the nice loud sounds I like from the big box speakers. Unfortunately i ened up purchaseing the big speakers and system for my livingroom. This system is not for those that like to adjust bass and treble since there is not a button to do so. i also do not like that you have to use the reomote for everything. this could potentially be a problem in the future if the reomte is misplaced or damage.

Having to pay extra for the iPod connect kit is a no-go for me. Also, like you I am uneasy that all functions are on the remote alone especially if as you say that the remote appears to be cheaply made. Great review. Thanks.

I have had a Bose radio w/cd for over 5 years, play it every day both the radio and cd's. Of course I use the buttons every day and I just want you to know the buttons have not worn out!!!
