Audiophiles, rejoice! Bose, the company that brought us the Bose Wave Radio, produced three new systems featuring the same technology. Mike Mackenzie reviews the Wave Music System. Does it deserve the same "sonic marvel" description as the Wave Radio?
Introduction: Bose Wave Music System
Popular science called the original Bose Wave Radio "a sonic marvel" because of the amazing sound quality coming from such a small compact unit. You simply had to hear this system to believe it. With the success of the original Wave Radio, Bose has produced three Wave Systems using the proprietary waveguide technology: Wave Radio, Wave Acoustic System, and the newest the Wave Music System. Nearly identical in appearance to the Wave Radio, there are a few major changes and improvements to the system.
Changes to the Wave Music System
Upon opening of the box first thing I noticed is that Bose managed to keep the size and weight of the wave music system the same. And that's where the similarities end for the most part.
With the new Wave Music System you receive an easy to read, full size 28 page Owners Guide with very clear instructions and large pictures to show what each function can do. Bose also includes a credit card style remote control with batteries already installed, one power cord and a demonstration CD that shows off the performance of the Music System.
The first thing you will notice when you remove the Music System from the box is the front loading slot type CD/MP3 player and no more buttons on the unit itself. Instead you rely entirely on the credit card style remote for control. Lucky the remote is well laid out and labeled for navigating through CDs.
