I don't have one of those, but I've always wanted one.
If you got a really good price on one, I'd sure like to know where.
They are supposed to have spectacular sound.

Try Ebay. That is where I ordered it from. Amazon wants too much money for it!!!!

I've heard them before but never owned one. So expensive.
Congrats Shermie. You will love the awesome sound to come out of that thing.

Did you get it yet Shermie?
I know you said you ordered it off ebay.
My son Ty recently ordered a retro Marantz stereo off ebay and he's thrilled with it.
I'll try and get a picture.

Bose used to make THIS. Their Acoustic Wave Music System. But I think that it was too bulky, not to mention being too ridiculously expensive, & stuck to just making the smaller radio.

Also, the bottom ports were just for air handling for the long throw woofers, iirc. A lot of space was moved horizontally and smarter management in the model you got.

They need to think about making a smaller battery-powered unit that you can carry around with you that you can play music with the same stereo sound the size of a smart phone. :whistling:

Ordered THIS on Wednesday from Ebay!! You can only get one used now, because Bose has stopped making them!! But I want one anyway for the living room!!!! Also ordered the remote & manual. You can also get the optional multi-CD player to mount on the bottom, which I plan to do. Amazon sells it forwell over $600.00!! I didnt pay that much for one!!!! :)

Nice!!!! I've found a few great deals on things at ebay ...but that was a number of years ago. Glad it's still got some good stuff out there.

The only thing that I hate is when they sell mixers, they are usually frigging without the bowl & beaters!!! If you buy one of these, you have to "run around" to try to find them!! That sucks big time!!!! :mad:

Rock on Shermie.
Those Bose stereos are amazing. A friend had one. It sounded better than my huge component system with big ass speakers. Totally amazing. And saves so much space.

Thanks, guys. Some critics think that Bose might be on their way out because they've stopped making a lot of things. I don't know about that, but lots of music lovers like their music on the go. Some cos. are making equipment on the go. :whistling:

Doc, when Bose was making it, their idea was about having big stereo sound in a compact unit without the hassle of wires & separate units like with stereo components. To put it on a table or in a cabinet & still have big stereo sound with the ingeniusness of the wave sound system, The small Wave radio was given this same idea, but in a smaller package. For years, I've always favored stereo components, still do. :whistling:
