surprisingly quick delivered, but.....

  • 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. The music system was dirty and dusty all around and I had to clean it inside out. For a regular internet seller I would have expected that they would go over the selling item and at least have the courtesy to remove dirty finger prints.

  • 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. Bose has done a slick job of marketing it to the masses but noway is it worth what they want for it. Save your money you can do alot better.

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. I remember in the 80's when we used to sit around at days end and compare the Bose 901 to the other High End Systems they were good but really lacked spacial definition (instrument location) and were not built very well either.

overpriced merchandise

Susan, Amazon

  • 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 say; I am such a music person and I thought that I would give it a try, very little audio difference to make up for the overpriced ticket on this unit.

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. 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.

no bass/treble controls :-(

  • 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. I was absolutely horrified, however, to find out -- it never occurred to me to ask the salesperson, and why should it?

Cher et pas génial

17 July 2013
  • 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!... avec des baffles en hauteur : le rendu était bien meilleur , dans une pièce de 3O mètres carrés au plafond haut!..... J'ai aussi le lecteur de 3 cd supplémentaires. Ce qui fait un ensemble à près de & 1000 euros!.....
  • 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... d'ailleurs on peut se demander pourquoi c'est le produit vendu par correspondance.
  • 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. Es war ein "Halb-spontan-Kauf", da ich zwar schon seit längerem mit dem System geliebäugelt hatte, es mir aber eigentlich nur mal im örtlichen Bose Shop (wir haben das Glück, einen der wenigen, die es gibt, in der Nähe zu haben) anhören wollte.
