Use your Wave music system remote control to operate all system and changer functions

Simple setup

The Wave® music system III mounts easily on top of the multi-CD changer with just two built-in cable connections. Then just plug in the system, and start enjoying your CDs/MP3 CDs and FM/AM radio. Touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. 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.

Snooze control is activated by tapping the top of your Wave music system

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.
