Summary: I must be the only one that sees the Bose as an overpriced system. Let me state that this decision is not based upon a one time adventure with the system -- I've tried it several times. The first time was in a chain electronics store. The sound was muddled and lacking bass until I cranked it up.

Summary: Our experience when seeing a Bose radio in someone's home was a it was a status symbol. The Mercedes of radios. Then we had an epiphony, and realized Bose owners rarely, if ever, were enthusiastic enough to say..... "sit down, wait till you listen to this!" Now we know why - we bought one. Yes, there are divotees of Bose compact sound systoms. Many here gave it 5 stars. It makes me wonder what radio they were comparing it to. Someone below said the AM reception was good.
Summary: I've had my Bose for about two years. I'm very glad to have received it as a present because, despite some of its fine features, it certainly does not merit the hefty, comparable-to-a-small-home-stereo price tag. I like its design and its sound. I don't like the following "features": 1) It is the most sensitive CD player I have. It will not properly play a number of CDs, especially CD-Rs.
Summary: Die Wave Stereo Anlage habe ich wegen des guten Rufes dieser Marke gekauft. Enttäuscht bin ich jedoch darüber, dass das Gerät gebraucht, zwar mit Gebrauchspuren, angeboten wurde, jedoch war der Lautsprecher und die CD-Abspielschalter defekt. Die Reparaturkosten stehen in keinem Verhältnis zum ersparten Kaufpreis des gebrauchten Produkts. Dafür hätte ich ein neues Gräat kaufen können.
