Not compatible with previous gen Wave radios.

Thomas M. Kern "T M Kern", Amazon

  • Summary: Not compatible with earlier Bose Wave radios. Seems strange since you purchase the CD player as an accessory and the Wave radios last forever since they are so well designed and built.

  • Summary: I ordered this item over the holidays and I got it within a week, which was nice, even though not necessary in this case. The item was described as in very good condition, as it was used. Unfortunately this was by far not the case.

  • Summary: My wife and I recently had an opportunity to try this table top radio / CD player in a Bose showroom. Very unimpressive sound, certainly nowhere near the $500 price tag. Poor bass, all plastic construction. This unit is worth about $200 retail.

Reality in Audio and all Technology today is a Game

  • Summary: When I've talked to my fellow sales people in the past & present the Bose products are really a Joke since they all are paid higher commissions to sell them because the margins are outrageous.

overpriced merchandise

  • Summary: Although I liked the Bose CD unit, I really felt that the sound was a slight step up from other music units; If I am going to pay top dollar for a cd player, it better give me than it does; this unit would be better value for 200.00 less; it really isn't that spectacular for this money; sorry to...

Too Much for Too Little

eurocrank, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: Dear Bose: I have wanted a Bose wave audio system for a long time. It always sounds wonderful in the store and I finally bit the bullet for the $500 and bought one recently. It looks great.

  • Summary: Cet appareil est très onéreux! La qualité de la musique est trés décevante, vu le prix! le son manque de profondeur; encore que quand la musique est réglée très forte! J'avais avant une chaine Thomson!...
  • Pros: appareil compact et puissant .
  • Cons: mauvaise qualité du son et donc mauvais rapport qualité prix !

Deception sur un produit qui vit d'une publicité excessive

famisol, Ciao
9 February 2013
  • Summary: Les arguments de vente sont trompeurs, la qualité du son n'est pas au rendez-vous , un son trop rond, peu expressif, et surtout aucun réglage possible. Dans un magasin Bose, il m'a été confirmé que le produit avait un son bien particulier et c'est pourquoi ils ne le vendaient pas...
  • Pros: son esthétique, sa simplicité
  • Cons: Le son  :   très particulier, pas de relief et aucun réglage possible .  Prix élevé .  Très décevant

Sehr schicke und kleine Kompaktanlage für recht viel Geld und leider mit klanglichen Patzern

  • Summary: Ich habe mir vor einer Woche das Bose Wave Music System als "Premiumpaket für den iPod-Fan" und zusätzlich den Wave SoundLink-Adapter zum kabellosen Streamen von Musik vom PC aus zugelegt.
