Overview

Wherever your music lives, it comes alive here

The Wave® music system III, the all-in-one system for all your music—now with even more convenience, more precise radio reception and more onscreen text information. Plus, system packages work with the ways we get our music today: Internet radio, smartphone apps, tablet, music from your computer—and whatever the future may bring. These additions can turn your Wave® music system III into a complete home audio hub.

Yet even as this system evolves, its legacy remains unchanged: elegant, easy-to-use, delivering sound way beyond its size.

  • On/off/snooze with just a simple tap
  • Advanced tuner with radio text display
  • Set two different wake-up times with independent alarms
  • Award-winning sound from a compact system
  • System packages available for all the ways you listen to music

Elegant simplicity

Just plug in the system and you're ready to go. The 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.

Big sound from a compact system

Advanced digital electronics and proprietary waveguide speaker technology helps deliver performance well beyond the system's size.

Plays well with all your music

There's a built-in CD player and FM/AM radio. Custom packages also let you enjoy multiple CDs, music from your iPod®, smartphone, computer, tablet or any Bluetooth® device.

Wake up to convenience

Addicted to the snooze control? We've made it easy enough to trigger 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. Nice. And practical.

Easy usability

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

A slim infrared remote control lets you conveniently operate all system functions from anywhere in the room. You can instantly access your favorite stations with six FM and six AM presets, and even move through your iTunes® or Internet radio playlists with certain custom packages.
