Pros Sound quality is superior. Simple to use. Extremely compact in size. Very sleek & attractive
Cons Would be nice to have additinal inputs
Summary The Wave Music System is a solid performer. The sound qualiyt is excellent and could not be easier to us. I have owned it for over 2 years and still enjoy it very much. For those that want good sound quality and ease of use, it is a homerun
"Some what over rated"on by suitor
Pros I like the optional 3 disk changer.
Portability. For travel, it packs fairly easy.
Sound is less inpresive than I expected for a $750.00 table top stero.
Cons Need a remote to operate, and it's small. So don't lose it, or drop it in todays paper, that will get tossed out.
Summary The sound is lacking a crisp bass response.
At high volumes, it goes flat.
I have an Onkyo that cost $200.00 and it sounds better. Except it has detachable speakers, so it stays home.
I would consider the next step up Bose unit.
Pros fairly decent sound and compact
Cons remote is spotty and cd player sometimes don't work
Summary I purchased the older model for my father and it seemed to have decent sound quality. Therefore, I picked a new one up myself. Within months the remote control failed (unresponsive). The elimination of the button controls on the new model (coupled with the unresponsive remote) made the thing useless. Bose said to unplug the thing and let it sit for 1 minute b/f replugging, thus resetting the settings. Soon thereafter the cd player could not read my cds ("unreadable"). By this time my warranty has expired and it's been crapshoot as to whether the cd can read at times or not.
It does also become a nuisance that one pays $500 and it doesn't even have some basic treble or bass controls. For the price this was not worth it.
Pros The best sound for its small size! Easy set up and use. Only one cable for power and everything else is integrated!
Cons It only comes with a small remote control but larger remotes are available.
Summary This small system can fill up a good sized room. Aux jack allows me to plug in my iPod and computer. You can take the Wave from the kitchen to the patio easily with only one cable to plug in. I have one of the first models and have been very happy. I now have added 2 of the newer models to our home that sound even better!
Pros SOUND CLARITY, EASE OF USE. CLEAN LINES!!!
Cons NO HD RADIO, MUST OPERATE WITH REMOTE.
Summary BOSE WAVE VS. POLKAUDIO I-SONIC
Have to disagree with the masses here! I choose the BOSE WAVE MUSIC SYSTEM over the POLKAUDIO I-SONIC for the following reason: #1 NATURAL SOUND CLARITY, #2 EASE OF USE & RELIABILITY, #3 CLEAN VISUAL APPEARANCE. After 12hrs of comparing the two units in different rooms side by side in my home I decided to keep my Bose and ship back the I-Sonic due to a CD player ticking & constant humming that occured right out of the box. Also the I-SONIC's sound in my opinion was tinny and not as natural sounding even with treble and base on level zero. HD Radio is over hyped and not ready yet. Hope this helps people decide on going for the I-Sonic, it sounds like a dream machine but falls short in my tests!
