Wave music system IV



The sound of a much larger stereo for CDs, DAB/AM/FM radio 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, a 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 bedside table.

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.

Your favourite music made easy

In addition to the built-in DAB/AM/FM radio tuner and CD player, connect to devices that use a standard 3.5-mm audio output.

Sets up in minutes

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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from a really neat system We have had this for a while now, it really was worth every penny. So easy to set up and the app allows you to use iPad and phones as well as the laptop to control. The sound is amazing. Love the fact you can listen to internet radio, stations you would otherwise not hear. We have now bought another speaker for upstairs. I am sure the neighbours love us!! No matter how loud you have the system on, there is no distortion. Find that the remote is great, have it in the kitchen and it still works while the unit is in the lounge. Very useful. Love this system and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve had two Waves IV’s and they are great I bought the Wave IV in ice white back in 2016 and I was happy with it. However, I recently sold that one as it wasn’t soundtouch compatible and it rarely got use. I definitely would not bother buying a non-soundtouch edition nowadays as they give you so much more functionality with a Smartphone or Tablet. My newest one is in Espresso Black and sits neatly on my Windowsill
