With conventional systems, if you make premium sound your priority, you have to deal with large speakers, stacks of equipment and plenty of wires to hook them up. Opt for small size and simplicity, and you sacrifice the sound. Meet the Bose Wave® music system. It delivers all the pleasures of premium sound from a compact system without the usual compromises or limitations. Easy to enjoy. The Wave® music system provides a room full of Bose quality sound from an all-in-one system that requires little space and is delightfully simple to use. There are no wires to hook up, no confusing buttons or dials to adjust. Just plug it in and hear the kind of sound that you may have previously thought possible only from a much larger system. Easy to use. A credit card-style remote lets you operate everything – a convenience you’ll appreciate when playing CDs or MP3 CDs, tuning into FM/AM radio or setting the clock and alarm. Easy to Try. The Bose Excitement Guarantee allows you to experience the Wave® music system in your home risk free for 21 days. Listen to your favourite music, try it in different rooms, and hear what you’ve been missing. If at the end of the 21 days you decide that you would like to return the product for any reason, then simply call us and we will arrange to collect it and refund you 100% of all monies paid, including shipping costs both ways. To order, simply choose your favourite colour: Platinum White, Graphite Grey or Titanium Silver. When your Wave® music system arrives, just take it out of the box, plug it in and experience the kind of performance that has made Bose one of the most respected names in sound.
