Ive got a number of them and we are very pleased with their sound and selectivity and sensitivity.
There are Bose STores all over. Why not just drive down to one and tell them youve got a "Wave radio" made before ,2005 (they changed their CD drives for the Wave and they made some changes on the little remotes)
Ive found that most remotes are interchangeablke within the decades of manufacture. The newer ones just have more **** like MP3 and ipod docking ports and the new ones wont address the CD players of the old ones.
Bose has a neat lifetimw thing. When your radio goes, you can trade the whole thing in and for about 100 bucks get a whole new system.
I hadda do this once cause we had the radio sitting out on a patio wall for two days and we went away and came back to a radio that had been rained on and it got shorted out.
You get what you pay for, and I still will pay the premium for a quality sounding CD/Clock radio like Bose. Theres none even close.
They are coming out with a "wave" internet radio .
