I had the Wave Music System (still have it) for 10 years, and wanted to give the new Wave Radio IV a try. I also have the original Series I Wave Radio from the early 1990s, so you might say I'm a Wave enthusiast. I especially wanted to try it for its dual alarms (I can now wake up at one time during the week, and later on the weekends, and not have to keep changing the alarm time). The only thing I had to do when I removed it from the box is just plug it in! I found myself not using the built-in CD player on my old Wave so I went with just the radio this time. The Silver finish compliments the Nickel accents well in my bedroom. I love the new blue display over the old green display of my old Wave, and I also love the "Touch-Top" control feature to turn it on and off. The remote is also a bit thicker, with better buttons that provide better tactile feedback when pressed and it can't be dropped as easily (I found myself dropping my old Wave's remote often). I love the new design. The other feature I like about the new Wave Radio IV is the Radio Data System (RDS)... I cannot tell you how long I've been waiting for Bose to include this feature, and now it's finally here! I'd highly recommend the Wave Radio IV! I love it!

I have the original wave radio with CD player purchased in 2001. It has worked flawlessly. I visited this site to see what has changed and possibly upgrade if the changes met my desire. My desire is pretty simple, that being having memory in the unit so I can load my mp3's without having to hook up my mp3 player with all the associated wires and hardware, and the room all that takes up. Unfortunately, no joy here so I won't be upgrading anytime soon. What I did find was that Bose eliminated all the manual controls on the top of the unit. Now one can only control it by the remote. I currently never use the remote even though it still works (I think). One of the reasons I don't use it is it has bubble type buttons. Every device I've had with this style of button has failed - maybe I press too hard? So I stay away from anything that has this style of button. In short, eliminating manual control is a big show stopper for me.

Time for a new one?

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Wave Radio IV - Platinum Silver:

Our Wave has been our bedroom radio for well over a decade. It seems to have lost a bit of its treble range so we are thinking of buying a new one. I can operate the buttons by feel in the dark but having to rely on a remote seems to me a disadvantage. My question is whether loss of some treble is normal over a long time and is it something repairable.

I purchased my wonderful Boze radio about five years and I lost my directions in a move. I am suffering from old age and I cannot remember how to unset my alarm on my Boze radio. Please help as it goes off and I don't know what to do. Help!

Bring back the Buttons!!

Comments about Bose Wave Radio IV - Platinum Silver:

I have two of the original wave radio with CD player purchased in 2001. They have worked flawlessly. I visited this site to see what has changed and possibly upgrade if the changes met my desire. I wanted to add additional units to the guest bedrooms, and a new radio for the kitchen, ideally with Bluetooth capability. I am disappointed that these do not have the ability to control with manual buttons on the unit... only with a remote which is easily misplaced or lost! Furthermore, the unit in our bedroom -- with the manual control, is easy to reach and control from our bed without fumbling for a remote -- and I especially like having the ability to hit the snooze button or to initiate a timer for a quick nap! -- i.e. turn the radio on in 15 minutes!! In short, eliminating manual control is a big show stopper for me. Please bring back the BUTTONS!!

SOME DETAILS DIASPPOINTING

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Wave Radio IV - Platinum Silver:

I've had my Wave Radio for about 1.5 yrs. and it performs as advertised but I wanted to mention a few details that were disappointing. You have to use the remote for tuning and volume control. There is no external AM antenna; the radio has to be rotated to perfect the AM reception, and since the speakers are directional, this is a problem. Lastly, the power cord is not permanently attached to the back of the set but must be plugged in; the attachment is not very tight and moving the radio or even bumping against it may make you lose power.

Great System

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Wave Radio IV - Platinum Silver:

I had the older generation of wave for about 5 years now, sound quality is still top notch but the design seems a bit dated if not obsolete. Glad I replaced it with the latest WAVE, its much more elegant than its predecessor.

I've had my Bose Wave radio for over a year now. I can't imagine going back to other brands. I especially love the Bluetooth adapter. I use the other auxiliary to connect to a TV.

Pleasantly surprised

By 

from Pine Grove, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Bose Wave Radio IV - Platinum Silver:

I guess I've come to expect great sound from a Bose product and this delivered as expected but I was surprised at the vastly improved remote as this replaces a previous Bose Wave Radio that I purchased well over 10 years ago.

Service and delivery comments:

This was my first online purchase with Abt and they did a great job too.
