A new Wave for Bose brings DAB+ home

By Staff writers | 4:03 pm 22/05/2012

Customers with a keen ear for quality audio will be delighted to hear that Bose has been updating its product line-up, adding digital radio and Bluetooth options to its Wave radio.

While we haven’t seen an update to the range in quite a few years, the Bose Wave III brings with it the ability to pick up on digital radio, with the system now supporting DAB+ in Australia.

Like the past version, the Wave music system features a slot-load CD player, as well as an auxiliary input for connection devices like an iPhone, iPod, smartphone, or TV.

“The Bose Wave radio and Wave music system changed the way people listen to music,” said Bose’s Santiago Carvajal. “We’ve updated them with new features and accessories, making each even better for enjoying the radio and digital music.”

Bluetooth is also now a possibility, with an optional music adapter ($219) allowing Bluetooth devices – like an iPad or iPhone – to communicate with the Wave radio. A dock connection kit ($169) is also available for plugging in iDevices directly to the Wave.

The Bose Wave Radio III and Music System III will be available in June 2012 for $579 and $799 respectively.
