Best Music Systems: Bose Music And Bose Radio - The Wave Music System

Updated on April 11, 2011

Bose Music: Bose Radio - Wave Music System

For anyone who is a connoisseur of music, to experience music like you've never experienced it before, you simply must indulge yourself and experience Bose music

More specifically, for folks wanting a simple music system that will fit in a kitchen, a bedroom, or a den (among many other places) and that packs a fantastic sound, check out the Bose Radio or the Wave Music System as it is most commonly called. 

My husband bought me a Bose Wave Radio Music System about 10 years ago and that was my first experience with Bose music products.  I have to say that I fell in love at first listen. 

Come with me and let's have a look at what options are available from Bose music products and specifically the Bose Radio and the Wave Music System. 


Bose Music: Bose Radio - Wave Music System

What makes Bose so superior in quality to other standard music systems? Their technology lends Bose products the same level of quality you would find in describing high definition TV rather than 'regular' definition TV. It just sounds so much better!

The reason appears to be because it amplifies not only high register sound but also refines and defines low register sound to a much greater degree than most standard music systems.

They use a technology that transfers the sound from a small speaker inside to the outside air and they do this through a series of 'tunnels' inside the Wave Music System. It transfers the sound over wide ranges of low frequencies and high frequencies through two speakers connected to waveguides which delivers the most incredible timbre I've ever heard from a system this small.

Bose Radio Wave Music System features:

  • CD player
  • AM/FM radio
  • Headphone jack
  • Remote
  • Alarm clock
  • Sleek and eye-pleasing design
  • Impressive sound quality - your music will love being played on this system
  • Expandable

Expandable Options for Bose Radio Wave Music System

  • Connect kit for iPod
  • Multi-CD changer easily fits onto base of Bose Radio Wave Music System
  • Sound Link option so you can access Internet radio or your digital music library such as iTunes
  • Long range wireless link - listen to your Bose Radio Wave Music System from any room in the house

Bose Music: Bose Radio Wave Music System

I first saw Bose music systems demonstrated in Seattle about a year before we bit the bullet and my husband purchased our first Bose Radio Wave Music System. 

The only 'down' side to Bose music systems can be that they are pricey.  However, I am a huge believer in you get what you pay for and in terms of music, since I love my music and have spent nearly a fortune on stereo equipment of all kinds over the years, I totally can justify the expense of this marvelous product. 

It makes a great gift for any occasion.  Bob bought it for me for a mega anniversary and it has been a treasure for us both ever since.  The first CD I played on it was Andrea Bocelli's Songo and it made me cry as the sound filled the room. 

I can't say enough about Bose music products because we own several of their products and are contemplating buying another for our TV.  We have had nothing but rave reviews from friends or family who have listened to the sound quality and have enjoyed our music libraries with us. 

The Bose Radio Wave Music System is a fantastic music system whether you buy it stand alone or you add some of the accessories to it.  I bought the iPod connector and simply by plugging the connection into the back of the Bose Radio Wave Music System, I could access all 11,000 of my songs at the flip of the remote and experience the same quality sound. 

Bose music products are hard to beat and the Bose Radio Wave Music System is one of their first but one of their all-time bests!

      It is as you say, Dolores - the moment you hear one, you just cannot fathom having any other music system! Thanks for the read.

      Well, they say that you get what you pay for. I bought my husband a Bose radio a few years back and was so impressed. That is some sound!

      BKC - I totally agree....I'd save up until doomsday to buy Bose over any other system as I have found them to have nothing but quality products. The quality of the sound is what blows me away and if you love music, that is the goal I actually moving you and coming 'alive'.

      Thanks for your added comments - that's what we did too, buy it in 4 installments. We actually have several Bose products and our kids have bought them as well. Just awesome company if you want the best sound available.

      Thanks for the read as always!

      I bought a Bose about 10 years ago. It was all it was advertised to be - the best sound system ever. The fact that it takes up so little space is a plus - what you see is what you get and all you need.

      An added bonus? When I decided it was time for a new one - well, what to do with the old one. I sold it on ebay for just about what I paid for it - seems it has value for those with iPods (just as you say) who want to hook it up and play exceptional (sound) music. Wow!

      I will never buy anything other than Bose. Don't know if they do it now - but when I ordered mine I was able to pay in 4 equal installments - no extra interest.

      Great hub on a great product!

      My sony sound system in my kitchen is nearing it's day to be replaced. I adore having a great sound system to dance around as I cook, clean and the like. Thanks for the great review of Bose Music: Bose Radio - Wave Music System. Awesome! :)

      Dream On - I hear you on the listening to music. I incorporate listening to music in a lot of 'regular' activities like gardening or even exercising or reading. I think that's what hooked me on the iPod so quickly because it is so portable and I can listen to it while doing other things. We also have a couple of Bose 'gadgets' that have made listening to music when entertaining an extra special event, too. I tend to be a workaholic myself so anything that helps me relax, I'm on it! Thanks for dropping by and for the read as always.

      I have often seen the ads and realized that is the way to enjoy music.I was afraid I wasn't going to go to work and just want to spend the day at home.Listening and enjoying life and all the love music brings.The temptation is still too great.I am a workaholic and I would miss music more than I do now.Maybe in the near future.Great hub.I feel the fantastic feeling through my body.

      No kidding, Melinda - you sure don't see many of those on Craig's List or elsewhere, eh? I love mine and I'd never part with one of my great music toys!

      akirchner, they can afford to hang on to their prices...and the owners will not let go of their boses...:-) I have looked..

      Melinda - Isn't it just so? They have decided to market their products though a lot more places and not sure if there ever will be a sale on any of them but I find them now at Fred Meyer and at Best Buy whereas before, I never saw them anywhere but in the Bose stores or on-line. That is progress....perhaps they will drop in price one of these days but I wonder!

      Christopher - That is too hilarious - I know I kind of flinched a few times when my son played his hip-hop music on there...I guess it sounded good but oy vey and all that!

      Hopefully after paying for college, you will get to indulge as well! I never would have bought it but Bob did it so I can always say 'nice call'. At the time, I couldn't have imagined buying something that cost that much for a RADIO - but it turns out it is way more than a radio!

      Thanks for the read.

      I have long covetted a Bose Wave Radio System. A couple of years ago a co-worker brought his Bose to work to listen to his questionable choices in music (Boxcar Willie fer cryin' out loud!), and even over the thundering sounds of industrial machinery the little Bose sang with clarity and volume. It just made me want one more!

      It will a be a pity to buy a Bose AFTER my kids are through college, but they are welcome to visit then and enjoy what I deprived myself of while the money was otherwise directed.

      Good hub about a great product.

      Wow! I have always wondered how they can advertise on airplane magazines!! Now I know! Yes, they are pricey.

      They have in fact perfected the sound systems...

      Thank you for this hub.
