- Bose updated its Wave radio and CD-equipped Wave music system with the
addition of an improved tuner, RDS to display artist names and song titles
broadcast by select FM stations, and a touchpad on top for easy access to the
on/off control and snooze control.
The $349 Bose Wave
radio III and $499 Wave music system III also add dual alarms to wake up to
separate sources and volumes.
Both models are
available direct to consumers through Bose retail stores, www.bose.com, and
Bose's toll-free number at (800) 444-BOSE. The Wave radio III is available in
Platinum White or Graphite Gray. The Wave music system III is available in Titanium
Silver, Platinum White or Graphite Gray.
Like before, both
systems include a 3.5mm auxiliary input to connect a smartphone, iPod, HDTV or
computer. Each continues to offer a Bose Link input to connect such optional
accessories as the $149 Wave SoundLink adapter, which streams music wirelessly
via Bluetooth from a computer or other Bluetooth-enabled device. Another Bose
Link accessory is the $99 Wave Connect Kit to dock and charge an iPod or
iPhone, and a third is the $249 three-disc Wave multi-CD changer.
The first Bose
Wave radio was launched in 1993, and the first Wave music system appeared in 2004.
