The sound of a much larger stereo for CDs, DAB/AM/FM and more

Enjoy rich, room-filling sound from a small music system that fits nearly anywhere—and now has a fresh design. The Bose® Wave® music system IV includes a CD player, an DAB/AM/FM radio tuner and an input in the back for other sources.

  • Exclusive waveguide speaker technology delivers high-performance sound
  • CD/MP3 CD player with repeat, random and continuous play
  • Advanced DAB/AM/FM tuner with onscreen text display of song and artist information
  • Auxiliary input for other sources
  • Slim credit card-style remote operates all functions

Elegant simplicity

Just plug it in and you're ready to go. Regular or home-burned CDs/MP3 CDs load directly into the front, and your favourite radio stations are available at the touch of a preset. A slim infrared remote control lets you operate all system functions from anywhere in the room, and the convenient touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. You hear your music with clear, full, accurate sound. All from a system that fits virtually anywhere—living room end table, kitchen counter or bedroom nightstand.

Big sound from a compact system

Much as a flute expands a breath of air to fill a concert hall, Bose waveguide technology fills your room with natural sound.

Sets up in minutes

Just plug it in and you’re ready to listen. There’s no stack of electronics. No big speakers. No wires running around your room. Proprietary Bose® technologies automatically perform many of the adjustments needed for high-performance audio. So you can enjoy the performance of a large, multi-component stereo without setting a row of controls. You may find yourself listening to music more often and enjoying it more. It’s really that simple.

Easy usability

The advanced DAB/AM/FM tuner delivers clear radio reception, and you can instantly access your favourite stations with six FM and six AM presets. Song and station information appears on the large visual display. And the CD player lets you hear your music the way you like with repeat, random and continuous play.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ALL THAT GLITERS IS NOT GOLD This is NOT stereo equipment. There are no controls (other than a factory set 'normal' and a lower button to adjust the base, treble - options on most (even basic) hi-fi. At best its a good DAB radio.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Potentially fantastic sound system I bought the system a few weeks ago. The sound produced is fantastic, however the annoying thing is the bass levels that are factory set. There is either the full earthquake or on the reduced setting, just filling rattler. Don't they realise that different styles of music don't have the bass as the overriding sound. Surely it is possible to give the buyer the option of adjusting the bass as they prefer. Come on Bose, get rid of the alarm and give us decent control. My musical tastes go from metal to classical and lots in between. All I want to do is play my CDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding quality We wanted to replace a tired. mid-fi system with a good DAB/FM radio. A good friend said "buy a Bose Wave". When that friend's been in the audio business / studio recording engineer for 50yrs you don't argue! We bought a Bose Wave nearly 20yrs ago & never looked back. Sound quality is outstanding & the only problem we had was when the remote died. Bought a new one. Easy. I can honestly say both my wife & I are as happy with the Wave as the day we bought it - & that's VERY happy. And I've just bought a pair of QC25 headphones - they're brilliant too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb!!!! I recieved my Bose wave 4 today and after considering buying a Bose wave for some time now made the decision to buy and arent I glad I did. This system ozzes quality from the exceptional materials used to the absolute crystal beautiful rich quality sound!!! I could not get over how simple it was to set up. Six radio stations tuned in approximately 2 minutes!!! To conclude if like me you have doubts about spending this kind of money don't just treat yourself to quality of the highest standard. I promise you won't regret it!! Well done Bose!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new CD collection I bought my Bose Wave last week and when I listen to my CDs some of which I have had for fifteen years or so, it is like I am listening to a brand new CD. It just sounds so very different. The DAB radio is the best I have ever had just using the mains cable. I added a Rabbits Ears aerial so as to get more distant local radio but that is no problem.
