I bought my first Bose over 14 years ago. I have hooked up powered Bose speakers so I have music in the basement, etc. I have never been more satisfied with a product. I bought my second system for sound in the garage when I work on my cars. Again, not a problem. Works and sounds great. I even had this one slide off the shelf I made and fell 5 feet to a concrete floor, all I had to do was redo the download and it is off and running. I could not give a higher recommendation. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!!

      Comments about Bose Wave music system III - Graphite Gray:

      Love this system, I have wanted one for years so when our old sound system shorted out I decided to take the plunge and get the Bose system. So glad that I did! the sound is amazing.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The only comment I have is that you need the Wave Music System to use the 3 Disk CD Changer, it does not work with the Wave Radio.

          Very happy with this purchase. It takes up limited space, is light enough to move around, if desired and the sound is almost as good as my stereo system was. Only fall back is cannot get many FM stations where I am but is not the fault of the this system. Mostly use it to play CD's.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Amazingly it arrived the next morning from time of purchase. Now that efficient service!

          great radio terrible CD changer

          By

          Comments about Bose Wave music system III - Graphite Gray:

          I guess I had forgotten how bad the cd player was. I was actually considering buying another system until I read the reviews and it all came flooding back. the radio and its features worked great but the CD player and the multi-CD changer are just trash. The player and changer were extremely noisy, I could have put up with that if it had just continued to work. I had purchased an extended warranty and of course it lasted long enough for that to expire so I had to pay a pretty penny to have it repaired. but less than a year later it started going bad again. the player in radio first and then the changer went kaput. I really wish they built a quality changer because the radio and features are great.

              I bought the original bose when they came out and now they are in wave 3. The one I own for almost 20 yrs and have been very happy with it. Now it finally broke about a month ago and now I'm looking forward to replace it. 2 thumbs up for bose.

              I have two with CD players and my latest is without. I've never experienced any of the issues I've read regarding the CD player, mine both work great. My question is when will Bose come out with an android app so I can manage my wave machine through my phone?
