Great little unit
I have had enough of spending $200-300 on small stereos by well known brands that begin with S. The lasers are rubbish and 6-12 months later they fail repeatedly to track or even start the CD. I have bought 3 now for various members of my family and all units have ended up on the recycling pile.
This is my first Bose system and I'm impressed. It is really solidly built and reads the CD almost immediately. The bass and dynamic range is fantastic and the radio works a treat even with the aerial built in to the power cord as it is. Why can't othe...
Well worth the money
The sound quality is unbelievable, it's very simple to use and program, an optional backlit remote can be purchased for $60 and is far better than the small remote. The unit also looks good in any room, the brightness of the display automatically adjusts to the ambient light. The iPod dock is also a terrific accessory.
Rich Bose sound, Made in the USA, Aesthetically appealing.
The remote provided is too small.
Wonderful sound, easy to use.
This is a standard BOSE product built with great quality. Bought it as I kept on seeing its commercial on RACV magazine. The sound quality is wonderful. Radio system easy to use. The clock function is wonderful, it would store time for a few days in its memory, so that if the power is interrupted, the system would not give you 00:00 kind of readings.
However, the system can be only controlled using its remote control, there's no controls on the system itself, the remote control is cheaply made.But the signal reception is great.
Sound is really powerful.
Don't lose your remote control, there's no other ways to control this system.
For such a small unit, this little sound system is unbelievable.
I only have a very small space, and wanted a compact hi fi system that didnt sound tinny and awful.
The sound this produces is amazing. You simply cannot believe it until you hear it. It is very clear and strong, with deep bass reproduction that doesnt become distorted at high volume.
Connected to the DVD player, I use it as my home theatre system and am very satisfied with its capability. I have watched many different films such as: 1950s musicals, The Blues Bros, Rocky Hor...
Absolutely delighted with the dynamics of this unit. I have attached a turntable as the aux input and have been blown away by the sound. I bought a second hand Classical LP for $2 this morning - I cannot believe how it sounds. Whether listening to AM, FM or Digital radio, CD or LP it is simply extraordinary. I swear when I played the Chopin this morning the neighbours thought I had bought a piano.
Simplicity of operation. Amazing dynamic sound.
Questions & Answers
I am trying to tune a a Bose WMS to an AM station at 693 Khz but it on steps by ten. It will step to 680, 690, 700 etc so I can't get 693?
What can I do to get my subwoofer to work again?
Would I be able to purchase a new remote controller for my Wave III, as it won’t work without one. Some of the “buttons” functions are wearing out.
