Summary: My wife and I have other Bose products and wanted this radio for our bedroom. Amazon had the best deal with free shipping and a free Bose lighted deluxe remote but it still came with the hefty price of $499.00. My radio arrived quickly and I was excited to fire it up.
Summary: This is the third BOSE Wave radio I've had over the years, giving away the other two to family members during moves. I moved again, and used the move as an excuse to get the newer radio with different color. I expected improvments, but found none other than color.
Summary: ...a Bose Wave Radio, I finally invested in it only to be very disappointed. Unless you are a fan of heavy bass, this is not worth the money. The higher range is muffled and flat. Certainly not what I expected for $500.
Summary: I gave this system a try and the sound quality is great, however, the system stops playing CDs at ramdom times. I tried many differenct CD's, new, old, mp3, regular cds, no luck, I am on my third unit now and I will return it. All my other players play the CDs no problem.
Too costly and ineffective for a glorified boom box
18 October 2005
Summary: Okay so the sound quality is better than a boom box, but it isn't the perfect system that many claim it to be. The features and function of the wave system are certainly not commensurate with its 500 dollar price tag.
Summary: Wanting to replace the boombox in my kitchen with something premium, I decided to compare my boiled-down list of tabletop radios- the Cambridge Soundworks 740 and the Bose Wave CD. If you could only have seen the looks my wife gave me as I sat and AB'd them.
