The science behind the sound

The Acoustic Wave® music system II proves that a primary home stereo system needn't be complex or cumbersome. Acclaimed Bose waveguide speaker technology remains at the heart of the performance, providing powerful sound from small speakers.

Advanced Bose digital electronics fine-tune the sound for accurate music reproduction across a wide range of volume levels. Vocals sound lifelike. Instruments ring true. More nuances emerge. The overall effect is much like music in a natural, live-performance setting.

Added versatility

The Acoustic Wave® music system II plays regular and home-burned audio or MP3 CDs as well as FM/AM radio. There's a headphone jack for private listening, auxiliary inputs for your MP3 or other portable player and an easy-to-read display. System packages add even more musical options, from your smartphone, iPod, tablet and more.

Control and convenience

A convenient infrared remote lets you control your system from across the room. The Bose link feature lets you easily connect your Acoustic Wave® music system II to a compatible Bose Lifestyle® system for an expanded home entertainment network.

If you're traveling, bring the music with you. An optional travel case makes it easy to enjoy your music at a picnic, tailgating or any outdoor gathering.
