3.0 out of 5 stars Ok system...if you haven't heard anything else, November 4, 2012
This review is from: Bose Wave Music System III (Electronics)
I would like to think of myself as a non-audiophile, yet I love music and want it to sound good, just not willing to put 10k into that passion. I thought the Bose would fit the bill, I had a B&W Zeppelin (original, not Air) and it opened me up to what music can sound like, it was like hearing my music again for the first time, I absolutely loved it, however, it kept having this digital noise on quieter moments, even after a firmware update. I returned it to B&W and they replaced it with another, that still had the same issues. I got rid of that and purchased the Wave Music System as I also wanted to listen to CD's. While it has a good sound, I could notice the top end was almost completely missing, I thought the mids were the highlight and the lows were serviceable, given the small stature of the Wave Music System III, although they were sometimes overbearing, I just couldn't get over what was missing, given I had heard these songs before on a more dynamic speaker, I retuned my system after about a month of ownership, of note, the Bose Store in my area was very helpful and courteous, and even though Bose manufactures almost everything in Mexico and China, the Wave Music System is still made in the USA. I would recommend the Bose if you want something still made in the USA and you are upgrading from an inferior system, but the Bose is something you can't step down into once you have gone above it fidelity-wise.

No highs, hardly any lows, it must be Bose.
