Simple setup

Just plug in the system, connect the Wave® III dock and you're ready to go. Touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. Regular or home-burned CDs/MP3 CDs load directly into the front, eliminating moving CD shelves or doors. This system fits virtually anywhere in your home.

User-friendly features

The advanced FM/AM tuner delivers precise radio reception. Song and station information appears on the large visual display, with adjustable brightness and automatic nighttime dimming.

A slim infrared remote control lets you operate all system functions from anywhere in the room. And you can instantly access your favorite radio stations with six FM and six AM presets.

Waking up is easy

The snooze control is easy enough to operate in your sleep. When the alarm or music comes on, just tap the top of your Wave® music system III. No remotes or buttons to locate. And our dual independent alarms let early birds rise without having to reset the wakeup time for a late-sleeping partner.

Sound beyond its size

Advanced digital electronics and proprietary waveguide speaker technology help deliver performance uncommon for a system this small. You'll enjoy the benefit of big-system sound without the big system.
