Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely delighted ! I purchased the Bose - Wave System III in February and was immediately impressed with the quality of sound coming from such a compact unit. It was very easy to set up and use on a daily basis as a bedside radio. At the same time I purchased a Ruark R7 at over three times the price of the Bose and there is absolutely no difference in the sound quality between the two units. I am so impressed with the Bose-Wave III that I have last week purchased a Bose Solo 15 TV sound system to improve the sound quality of the main TV and I am equally impressed with that unit. There are just three ways in which the Wave System III would be improved :- A) Make the digital clock radio controlled B) Provide independent controls to adjust the bass and treble levels C) Provide controls on the unit to enable operation without using the remote control for everything

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound I have had my Wave Music System for 5 months now and am delighted with it. The sound can be adjusted to just the right loudness and that makes it perfect to enjoy any music be it Classics or Pop. I have always had B&O in the past but they stopped supplying a system that would play all my many CD's. I am so glad they did as it made me look for something else and I found Bose!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Punching above its weight Excellent sound for the size and price. I'm thrilled that I can hook up my laptop too. My only quibble is that I would have preferred a multi-CD option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound reproduction I first bought a Bose wave system in 2005 which gave me ten years of complete satisfaction. For it's size, the sound quality is just amazing. Finally after ten years it began to fail and I contacted Bose who gave me the option of returning it for complete repair at a very reasonable cost, or to trade it in for the latest wave111 for a substantially reduced price. This I accepted and I am confident that I shall never regret this decision. I am absolutely delighted with the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose. Go on and spoil yourself. I have had many music machines in my life, I just love music. On deciding to upgrade I looked at everything but could not find what I wanted. Now how many times I have looked at Bose and decided it cost to much I don't know. A few months back my wife bought me one. I truly have never listened too such sound reproduction in my life. A few weeks later I bought another one for the lounge. All the years I have been looking at Bose instead of getting one, I have been missing out on this wonderful sound. I am not a Rep for Bose, I am just an old guy that likes his music and great sound.
