Product Description

Experience the Bose standard in CD and FM/AM radio performance from a table top music system as elegant as it is easy to use. With the multi-CD changer included in this package, you can also enjoy hours of uninterrupted music from your favorite CDs, including MP3 CDs you've burned yourself. Simply slide one CD or MP3 CD into the slot on the front of the Wave® music system, and up to three more into the multi-CD changer. One remote controls all CD functions, plus the FM/AM digital tuner, clock and alarm.

The changer has the same small footprint as the Bose Wave® music system III. Together they stand at only 6½" inches tall and can fit almost anywhere.

Where to start?! First: How it sounds. Impressive, especially in its latest incarnation. The bass-response is deep and full, without sacrificing definition in the upper range. The Cambridge Soundworks Table Radio (its main competitor) has deeper bass due to its separate downward-firing bass-woofer, and also has a great "wide" spatial setting. I think that the CSW sounds a bit fuller, but at high volume the Bose "fills more air". And more importantly: I've had a lot of trouble with my CSW in terms of reliability (mainly regarding the CD transport mechanism and display). Also, the Bose is much more simple to operate - good for those people who don't want to be bothered with tweaking settings. The CSW is a bit less expensive. So weigh your needs, and choose accordingly.

As for the CD changer: It is well-designed, and works seamlessly with the Wave itself (just be sure to load the update disc from the CD changer into the main unit first per the instructions). They've done a great job of minimizing excess cordage in the back. Should you buy it? That depends. It adds only 3 more discs, and when they change it is a bit loud and "clunky" sounding. Lots of people (myself included) now play their music from their iPods, etc., through these units, via the auxiliary jacks (it only costs about $8 for a stereo ⅛ inch-plug cord). I bought the changer for mother, and for her it was a good decision. But if you use an iPod and make playlists, etc., the CD changer is unnecessary.

The Bose Wave Music System III is an outstanding piece of audio equipment and the sound it creates is unbelievable. We have the system in our kitchen and enjoy it every day. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking a high quality audio system in a compact size. Though somewhat pricey, you get what you pay for and the crispness of the sound emmitting from the small speakers will amaze even the most skeptical of listeners.

Purchased two of these radio, one for self; another as a gift. Both units randomly shutdown. Had each unit replaced. Same thing occurs with replacements. Have now replaced both units multiple times with the same result. There appears to be a design flaw with these units. The problem is particularly acute when playing MP3 disks. Bose has no solution for this problem. I have to hope this is not an electrical hazard nor a threat to the longevity of the unit.

I also have a 321 system, the DVD player included in the unit has significant issues playing jukebox discs as well. p.s. the dvd in the unit appears to be an ordinary PC player and the bass unit is a big box with just a small (5 or 6 inch) speaker in it; not a big woofer the size of the case.

The controls for the Wave Radio unit are also poorly designed.

1) While the touch on/off sounds neat; it isn't particularly practical.
2) The physical unit has no eject button, so you will always use the remote to eject a disk.
3) The sleep function doesn't retain its last setting. Each time the sleep timer is set, it starts at 30 minutes and you must click, click, click to get to the time you want.
4) Still no bass or treble settings. If you have difficulty hearing in a particular range, you can't adjust the sound output.
5) When the unit is off, you can't adjust the volume below a particular level. When you do switch it on at that level the unit is quite loud; so if you're trying to be quiet... s.o.l !
6) No USB input.
7) In my opinion the unit should have a DVD not a CD player.
8) Bose should remember that not everyone in the universe owns an ipod, not do we want to.
9) Title information scrolls incompletely and is only visible for a short period.

Great sound, great compact size. However, I must reset by unplugging it often to deliver the 3rd CD from the slot.

It is exactly what I wanted. The only problem is that the CD changer does not lock on to the main system as I thought it would. I was hoping it would fit so as to move more in one piece.

Performs and sounds great ! I only thing that could improve it would be to to have random shuffle on all discs not just on the cd that you are playing.
