Bose Wave Music System

Perhaps you’ve heard of this one? Bose remains the name that’s synonymous with tabletop music systems, carrying brand loyalists and others who appreciate the Wave system’s size, versatility and sonic quality. The Wave Music System increases the range over the original Wave unit by broadening audio to reach a half-octave lower. The slot-load CD player adds to the slim form factor and stylish design (available in graphite gray or white) and plays MP3 discs as well. If it’s iPod music you’re after, a $129 connect kit with docking station is available. To ensure that your ears won’t be ringing the moment you power up the Wave to your White Stripes CD, the unit features automatic ramping that starts the volume out low after it is turned on and gradually raises it.

Price: $499
