Bose® Wave® music system III
Wherever your music lives, it comes alive here
Presenting the Wave music system III--the latest evolution of the product that changed our perception of home audio. Its bold, detailed sound remains exceptional for a system of its size. Now, there's even more to like.
An advanced FM/AM tuner displays useful information like song titles and artists. Touch-top on/off/snooze controls and dual alarms make waking up a little easier--for both of you. You'll appreciate these welcome additions, plus the same jaw-dropping sound, elegant finish and easy operation you've come to expect from this system.
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
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.

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)

Bose has pioneered its spectacular sound machines which seem highly defined by their innovative speaker systems which they refer to as "waveguide speaker technology". This one-piece system produces a clear, natural, room-filling sound without the need of external speakers. It has a very innovative physical design with a small unintrusive footprint that sits well on a night stand or in the kitchen. I particulrly appreciate the Titanium Silver color which seems appropriate for any area of the home. It is simple to install right out of the box and has the FM/AM radio, CD player, and clock/alarm built in. There is an auxiliary input for an MP3 player or other alternate sound source.
I especially appreciate the alarm system that opens softly and gently rises in volume as you awake. It comes with a credit card size remote control; however, I purchased the larger backlit remote with a dedicated cradle that I use instead. All in all, this is an effective and very impressive one-piece tabletop sound system that I enjoy daily. It is a bit pricy, but ultimately, you get what you pay for.
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.Read more ›
