Hell there - I just received a bose radio as a gift. So no money out of my pocket. Having said that - since this one does not have a built in cd player in it, I was wondering if I should spend the extra 150 to get the one with the cd player in it.


I already have a yamaha ysp 800 soundbar with a cheap denon subwoofer in my bedroom that does a good job a playing music. Would this bose be as good?


Thank you for your input.

I have the bose wave radio/cd player that I received as a birthday present. I like it and think it sounds great, for a clock radio that is. I would say yes, get the cd player for only an extra 150 bucks. It is just nice to have options. There is only a couple of products that I like from Bose, and the clock radio just happens to be one of them.(and if, and only if.....it was a present
)


I don't think it will sound any better than what you have though. It really depends on how many options you want to have.

wow...just an update for those who are considering this purchase.


Backgroud - Def Tech Mythos One/Three/Supercube I/Klipsch Slx in one room, yamaha ysp800 in another.


Now this radio, is without a doubt awesome. Amazing sound indeed, BUT BUT BUT - it is not good for the money. For 500 $ - you could certianly do a lot more. Also, I don't know how to describe it - but - while listening to enya - some of the times it almost went flat. As I said, for someone who is not an "audiophile" and wants a sure thing for the money spent....this is it, if money is not the issue that is.
