Summary: The price was right...I really did not want the color listed (grahphite) but saw later that it was the white platinum color which I had wanted in first place so was very pleased at that. Received the merchandise in a timely manner so I was very pleased with the entire purchase from beginning to end.
Summary: it's actually not gray, but off-white. Sound is better than the original, although having to use the remote for all functions is a tad less convenient than being able to also use the buttons that were on the top of the original. On the other hand, the cat doesn't step on the ON button prowling around the nightstand at 3:30 in the morning.
Summary: This is my 4th Bose radio. I have one in my kitchen, one in my bedroom, and one in my office, that I have used for many years. The sound is great just as advertised and the remote is a nice feature as the radios are located a distance away so it's easy to mute or lower volume if needed during phone calls.
Summary: About 4 years ago I received the Wave music system III FM/AM CD player with remote for Christmas. Since then our family has had many hours of enjoyment with it. We have never had any problems with the radio, and the sound is always clear. We only needed to replace the batteries in the remote once, and it gets used everyday. We have never had a problem with the CD player either. The BOSE Wave music system was one of the best Christmas presents I have ever been given.
