The sound of a much larger stereo for CDs, AM/FM and more

Enjoy rich, room-filling sound from a small music system that fits nearly anywhere—and now has a fresh design. The Bose® Wave® music system IV includes a CD player, an AM/FM radio tuner and an input in the back for other sources.

  • Exclusive waveguide speaker technology delivers high-performance sound
  • CD/MP3 CD player with repeat, random and continuous play
  • Advanced AM/FM tuner with onscreen text display of song and artist information
  • Optional Bluetooth® music adapter to wirelessly connect your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth device
  • Auxiliary input for other sources
  • Slim credit card-style remote operates all functions

Elegant simplicity

Just plug it in and you're ready to go. Regular or home-burned CDs/MP3 CDs load directly into the front, and your favorite radio stations are available at the touch of a preset. A slim infrared remote control lets you operate all system functions from anywhere in the room, and the convenient touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. You hear your music with clear, full, accurate sound. All from a system that fits virtually anywhere—living room end table, kitchen counter or bedroom nightstand.

Big sound from a compact system

Much as a flute expands a breath of air to fill a concert hall, Bose waveguide technology fills your room with natural sound.

Plays well with all your music

In addition to the built-in CD player and AM/FM radio, there’s an optional Bluetooth music adapter that allows you to play music from your smartphone, tablet or any other Bluetooth device.

Sets up in minutes

There’s no stack of electronics. No big speakers. No wires running around your room. Proprietary Bose technologies automatically perform many of the adjustments needed for high-performance audio. So you can enjoy the performance of a large, multi-component stereo without setting a row of controls. You may find yourself listening to music more often and enjoying it more. It’s really that simple.

Easy usability

The advanced AM/FM tuner delivers clear radio reception, and you can instantly access your favorite stations with six FM and six AM presets. Song and station information appears on the large visual display. And the CD player lets you hear your music the way you like with repeat, random and continuous play.

  • Large display with adjustable brightness and automatic nighttime dimming

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GIFT TO MYSLEF: MORE THAN HAPPY! I had wanted this for like five years.... it is a bit pricy so I kept talking myself out of it. Finally, I cave in and gave myself my gift and it is all mine even though my teen would love to take over. The sound is amazing. I love to listen to Pandora on it with all the selected stations I have with it. The set up was simplistic. I fully recommend it. My sales person recommended that I purchase another remote. The one that comes with it is thin and small and easy to misplace. The other one is larger and has it's own stand. I am glad to have listen to my sales person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the updates, just all the wrong ones... The sound is beyond measure, but when taking a piece of beauty like this and updating it, you need to UPDATE it... I wish it had built-in Bluetooth so that I can listen to my music wirelessly on my headphones and or my phone or tablet. I wish you had a phone app or a table app that would let me be more in control of the unit like the remote does. I wish that there was a way to add my Sirius radio account to this unit so that I can listen to digital quality from a source that I already have a subscription to. Other than that... I love heck out of my unit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I am happy with everything about my radio, except the commercials I am getting. WalMart and baby aspirin! I'm sorry but I am so fed up with listening to commercials and I thought this was a good way to hear good music--without commercials.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bose Wave Radio I have had two Bose Wave radios. There is no question that the sound is fantastic. But when they removed the buttons from the lid, the radio lost a lot of functionality. I could be listening to it in bed and I knew where the buttons were to reach up and change the station or CD. Now, I need a light (the remote does not light up) to see what button to push. It is a pain! The remote is so small that it can get misplaced. I already had to buy another. The radio is useless without the remote. I really wish they would bring back the set-top controls. I would not buy another Wave until they do. Notwithstanding my frustration with no buttons, the radio itself is fantastic. I have the option to listen to Pandora. FM choices have been lousy. In fact, I wish Pandora was built into the radio, and maybe iheart.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wave radio with CD No controls on top. Prisoner of the remote. Hate it. Previous model far easier to use (remote plus hands on controls on top of unit). Need to buy additional remotes. Can't even find them on the website.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money the bose CD player was a special gift because I love to listen to audio books . It has been an issue and unreliable since I tried to use it. The cd's are clean they play fine in my car CD player and will not play. This was a huge waste in money. Threw it out and went back to my 29.98 cd boom box player
