Let me start by saying this music system is not for everyones choice.Choose the music system based on the music you like.
I love classical and realism of the life like instruments (like in jazz).So I took my music with me while testing out various systems available.After 3 months of testing on all the available speakers and sound systems (from the cheapest to ones that cost 20X the cost of bose wave).I found nothing that could produce more life like realism and spaciousness of instruments other than the wave music systems of bose(not even the other bose systems using other technology).

The other speakers and systems had punchier base or better treble but could not produce the spaciousness and realism that the wave could.
If you like rock or pop or want a home theatre system or like listening to synthethic instruments.. I don't think you will like this as much as there are better systems that produce base or treble better(althought the wave does quite a good job).I liked polk audio hooked up to denon amp for rock and pop ..it produced amazing treble clarity and the base punch was stunning but the polk was not as good with classical ..the realism was absent and did not have the spaciousness as bose wave.
I also tested on other bose systems like the sound dock and the direct-indirect reflecting speakers and the home theatre systems..they were amazing for some kinds of music or movies but again I could not hear and fell the realism that the bose wave gives.
The bose wave really takes listening to classical music to the next level...only sitting in the middle of the orchestra might sound better..I don't think anything else comes closer.If I do find something better I will update this review...

I cannot rate this home audio system highly enough. It maybe small and compact but the sound is brilliant. It somes with an example cd, take the time to sit down and listen to it - even at the volume level it says - and you will be amazed. There are no extra speakers, its all built in and the ariel for the radio is in the power cord so no cables or wires on view.
Go on. Treat yourself. You won't be disappointed

I bought mine back in 2006. It's still working fine & is still confounding people who listen to it but can't believe the sound isn't being reinforced by a hidden bass woofer somewhere!

For more years than I care to admit, I was the archetypal British Hi-Fi nut. If it didn't need a mortgage to pay for it, & wouldn't fit into the room without having to kick Granny out, then it wasn't proper Hi-Fi. Well, that was fine until I downsized my house & needed to pacify the new neighbours with more 'realistic' listening levels. So, out went the snobby (expensive) Hi-Fi & in came the Bose.

Now I have to admit, it isn't going to please everyone: I could criticise the bass for being a bit 'plummy', or the top registers for being strident, but that just misses the whole point of this system. It is designed to produce pleasing sounds from a small box that is unobtrusive (to say the least). Bose use what they call a waveguide to produce the bass: this is basically a tunnel that winds its way around the inside of the small case. It gives the bass frequencies the length they need to be realistic, & does a reasonable job, too. Of course, you pay for this trickery with a bit of distortion, but it doesn't interfere with the music unless you ponder on this fact too much. Just let the music wash over you & you will get the point of the Bose technology.......It's there only to help you enjoy the music, pure & simple. Never mind the tech specs that top-end Hi-Fi has, just enjoy what Bose give you from an incredibly small box.

I remember a company in the '70s who used 'transmission-line' speakers to achieve what Bose have developed with the wave system. Same basic principle, & back then you would have paid twice as much for these speakers as you would for today's Bose.

For anyone who's not heard the Bose Wave music system and doesn't believe all the hype in the glossy full page adverts of such publications as The Radio Times and innumerable colour supplements I suggest they hear one and then they will become believers. I wasn't sure , four years ago, when I spent £500 on what was essentially a small clock-radio, when it arrived I was a bit dubious when I saw the size of the unit but when I plugged it in and tried their demonstration CD I was blown away, the depth of sound from full bass to sparkling treble was truly astounding and the output is enough for any normal room up to very loud listening levels what's more it doesn't seem to distort at all when on very loudly. After four years use, on the radio and using CD (it'll play most formats including MP3s) I still wonder at how such a full sound can emanate from such a small unit. If you only have one music maker in your house you won't be disappointed with it at all, it will surprise all who hear it from novices to Hi-Fi buffs alike.(and the FM reception is perfect). It may seem expensive but it's worth it especially when you compare it to conventional systems that can't match the audio performance and are much bulkier and inconvenient to place in a room environment.
