“A Very Sound Compromise”

published 29/01/2006

ProThe sound, the size, the portability, the looks - ...

ConsThe disappearing all-too-remote control.

"You're not bringing that thing indoors, are you?" My wife's tone of voice made it clear that this wasn't really a question - her last two words were superfluous. The "thing" in question was my old Sanyo hi-fi system, which had been languishing in the garage along with a vast quantity of the...

“Bose Beats The Blues”

published 17/09/2007

ProSmall, Great sound, No wires

ConsPricey

What can I say but superb. I first heard a Bose system in a Hi Fi shop in Cambridge and the demo blew me away. Admittedly it was not the wave music system but the acoustimass but I knew straight away I was going to be hooked on Bose. I have a Bose concert system installed in my Audi A4 and this...

Well, well, well as I draw nearer to my fiftieth review, I have to say that Ciao is brilliant, I simply love it! And now is the turn for me to review the Bose™ Wave Radio/CD, as I have tried to before but Ciao have only just started to list it, so here we go! As a short introduction though before...

“My Bose is My Baby!!”

published 06/07/2006

ProAwesome sound

ConsUnusual design and few features

I was looking for a simple unit that sounded good which is why I chose this. On first impressions you can wonder what on earth you are getting for your money. No surround sound? No flashing lights? No multiplay disc option? Well, if you are like me and all you are worried about it what the sound...

“Bose CD/Wave Radio”

ConsSome music genre does not play too well

Do not be fooled by the size of this device., the sound it can produce is very clean and fills the room nicely. The speakers are actually quite small but can produce the sound it makes by a series of air grooves which run throughout the system giving it that bass. The variouds functions are easy...

I have often looked at the Bose adverts in the Sunday Supplements and wondered just how many people buy Bose this way, because for me until you have heard a Bose System you will never understand the depth of music you can have in your home. The unit may not be 'pretty' it has no real gismos or...

“BOSE WAVE RADIO/CD”

published 28/10/2004

ProSound Quality.

ConsNo headphone facility.

The Bose Wave Radio and CD is absolutely astounding. It is like listening to an orchestra from a one man band. The unit is built like a tank, but is portable. You are not going to get much change from £400 but the company themselves offer six months interest free credit accompanying this is free...

“Warning”

published 26/03/2008

Prosee remarks

Conssee remarks

The trouble with the Bose WAVE musci system is that its acoustic set-up is based (pun intended) on the assumption that one size fits all, and this isn't true. The upper and middle registers are nice and clear - good for a cappella singing - and the enhanced bass works fine for music which is...

ProStylish, great sound quality, unique

ConsNone, but remote control is too small!

I purchased my WAVE system early this year (07) and have been delighted with it's simple approach and near perfect sound quality. Bearing in mind I used to have a BIG Pioneer unit with CD/amp/phono, I saved a huge amount of space by making the switch and the BOSE unit now sits on a storage...

This is absolutely superb. Having listened to one, you will want it. Even at high volume there is no distortion and even though it is a small unit, it can still fill a room from its 2 speakers. My only criticism is with its internal aerial which does not receive a sufficiently strong signal down here in Cornwall to do justice to radio broadcasts. Connect to a broadcast from a digital source with the supplied cabling (Sky, eg) however, and the quality is once again wonderful. Losing the remote control might prove to be a problem as there are no controls anywhere on the unit, so ejecting a CD without the remote would not be possible.

“To Bose Or Not To Bose?”

published 05/04/2005

ProCOMPACT & EASY TO USE

ConsUGLY DESIGN!!

This compact (if somewhat ugly in design) music system is a little gem! For it's small size the sound that comes out is something else! This little system plays your cd's as they truely sound. When you hear your cd's for the first time you can pick out the sounds/ backgrounds that you can not...

ConsHandbook and sensitive controls

The Bose Wave Radio and CD player has been our general day-to-day facility for approximately 5 years and during that time has provided an excellent clarity of sound and ease of use. We chose this model for this feature and also because its controls were easy to use. We as a family continue to...

Bose wave music system, great SMALL product, great BIG sound! I love this little player, it sits on a shelf in the corner of the room but the sound what comes out of it fills the whole room. Its discreet, so can be tucked away, but when switched on, the sound is immense! We even bought an...

I was sceptical at first about the claims made of the sound quality of the Bose Sound Wave 3. Having a PIONEER Home Theatre system costing £1100 I considered that the Bose would not match up to this. Having to create space due to a house move I bought a second hand Bose, to give it a trial and...
