Sound Advice
By Don Lindich

Week 9, 2022

Q. We are having an issue with our Bose Wave Radio/CD system. It has an add-on that provides an additional 3 CD capability. The slot in the radio itself is playing the CD properly, but the 3 CD add-on unit has begun to make spinning, sputtering, skipping noises. After a period of time it seems the CD begins to play normally.

In checking around it appears these players are no longer on the market and repair seems non existent. I would like to know if you have any knowledge or suggestions regarding repair or can suggest an alternative player for purchase. I know eventually the CD players will be a thing of the past but since we are 75 and 80 respectively, we still enjoy our CD’s and at this time are resistant to change.

A. You are correct that repairs on this radio are difficult, if not impossible to find. Fortunately the single disc slot is still working, but even when that CD drive stops working properly you have an option. Get a DVD player with analog outputs (The Panasonic DVD-700 is a very good choice for only $45) and use an RCA-to-3.5mm cable to connect it to the Bose’s AUX input. Select AUX on the radio and it will play the signal coming from the player. You can play CDs this way with any device with an AUX input. I’ve done it myself with Soundcore Flare speakers when I wanted to listen to CDs in rooms without a stereo system.

I have recommended a DVD player because the only CD players available these days are expensive high-end units, which would not provide any benefit with a small radio like the Bose. A DVD player will also play CDs, and most newer ones (like the Panasonic) play media from a USB port, as well. I have used the USB port on my 4K Blu-ray player with a card reader to look at photographs and watch videos directly from my camera memory cards. It’s a very handy feature with a lot of capabilities that are sadly not used by the majority of owners. If your player has a USB port try it out, you will be glad you did!

DecorTech Rectangular End Table with Built-In Bluetooth Speaker and USB Charging Port: I encountered this product in the waiting room of an office and asked the receptionist about it. She said it cost about $50 at Walmart and they had been very happy with it. It struck me as a space saver that would be well received by those who want to play audio without a visible (or removable) speaker in the room.

The table itself has a simple look I found attractive. The power connection is in the back and once plugged in you have a handy USB charging port and a speaker to pair with your phone, tablet or computer. The sound quality does not rate as hi-fi, but I have heard worse and it is more than adequate for background noise or listening to the news from the SiriusXM radio app. At only $54.98 it is a handy combo that seems perfect for the environment in which I first found it, an office waiting room. The waiting room now has background music without installing speakers in the ceiling or walls, and it is much less likely to be lost to theft than a portable speaker.

    This Bose Radio/CD Player arrived as promised by the seller. I am very glad. I’ve been playing non-stop for 2 weeks now. It has been refurbished but plays CDs like new and I love the quality of the radio. I’ve never liked using remote controls, so the buttons on top are perfect for me. It fits well in my small sunroom and looks great on small furniture as you can see in the photo. I would like Bose to release a new model if this one…

    These old first generation Bose Waves are the best!

    I have six radio/CD B ose wave. My original is one of the first generation clamshell CD players. Must be 20 years old. I played it a lot and still love it. I bought three subsequent models and never liked them. I don’t like being at the forefront. And all new ones tend to jam with CDs stuck in them. I’m pretty good at removing jammed CDs. One of them stopped playing CDs altogether. BUT, these old units are GREAT. Centerfold cover…

    We’ve had a Bose radio for a long time, but no CD player. I have a huge collection and I wanted to hear it. I didn’t need all the bells and whistles of the latest Bose options, so I figured this should do the trick. When it arrived, I couldn’t even connect to our (weak) NPR station, the remote looked damaged, and some features didn’t work. I named her cast. Service # and got a lot of help. I have already completed some of the suggested maneuvers, so I…

    So far so good with this purchase of a “like new” refurbished CD player -disc/radio Bose. The sound is just great for my apartment, plays loud and quiet, the sound is “clean” with quality bass. The seller seems to have been very honest about the condition of the Bose Wave radio/CD player in terms of “like new” status. I’ve only been using it for a few days, but so far I’m very happy with my purchase. Great sound for rock and roll and smooth classical music. I was wary of buying something that was indicated…

    I love this device. The treble isn’t as crisp as I’d like (I’m more of a perfectionist than the average person), but overall the sound is great and, being vintage, I like the convenience of the flip cover for playing CDs. It’s about the size of a large shoe box. I bought the cream color and it looks great on the kitchen table. Because it has knobs on the top of the device (wish they were on newer devices), I don’t have to fiddle with the remote…0007

    I bought this radio for my elderly mother after she had problems using another Bose radio she had for about 4-5 years. The only way she could do anything with her old radio was with the remote control, and she found it too complicated and confusing to use – the remote was too small, the buttons were hard to see, and it was hard to figure out which individual I do goods. She eventually stopped using the radio. This…

    Received a white top-loading Bosa yesterday. I can’t comment on the durability of the hardware, but I have 2 more Bose CDs/radios and these are well made compact music kits. Arrived on time, well packaged. It was a brand new clean sound with great tone. The remote came with a battery and worked great. It’s generic, but does whatever it takes. Control buttons at the top are an added convenience. A copy of the instruction manual has been attached. I don’t need…
