Introduction
Wake to your favorite radio station or CD track
Thank you …
Thank you for purchasing the Wave® SoundTouch™ music system;
an elegant way to bring high quality sound wirelessly into any room.
With the addition of the SoundTouchTM pedestal to the Wave® music
system, you can listen to Wi-Fi® music at the touch of a button.
The demonstration CD
We encourage you to listen to the
demonstration music CD included

on page 17.
Listen to your favorite music file (MP3) CDs
The benefits of research
Over fourteen years of research by Bose Corporation brings you
the benefits of award-winning proprietary acoustic waveguide
speaker technology. Using this technology, a tube efficiently
transfers energy from a small speaker to the outside air over a
wide range of low frequencies. And, long waveguides, folded into
intricate patterns, fit into products small enough to be placed
­comfortably in your home. Your Wave® SoundTouch™ music
­system features dual tapered waveguide speaker technology,
­connecting two speakers to two 26" tapered waveguides which
combine to produce unprecedented instrument timbre from a
­system this size.
Dual tapered
waveguides
Your Wave® SoundTouchTM music system can play MP3 music
files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs. You can use the remote
control to easily navigate through your MP3 files and play your
favorites. For details, see "Playing MP3 CDs" on page 15.
Personalize system operation using the setup menu
System settings were selected at the factory to satisfy most owners of a Wave® SoundTouchTM music system. If you wish to change
the settings, see "Personalizing Your Wave® SoundTouch™ Music
System" on page 22.
The setup menu allows you to change the following system settings
to your liking:
• Snooze time
• RDS information on or off
• Play a radio station automatically after a CD ends
• Clock time format (12- or 24-hour)
• Display brightness level
• Bose link room code
• Touch pad on or off
• Disable the automatic off feature
• Reset to factory settings
Special features
Listen to SoundTouch™ sources such as Internet radio,
music services, and your stored music library
You can easily connect your Wave® SoundTouch™ music system to
your home network using the SoundTouch™ app on your computer
(Mac or PC). The SoundTouch™ app allows you to assign your music
to one of six presets. These presets can be accessed using the Wave
SoundTouch™ remote or the SoundTouch™ app on a computer or
smart device. See "Adding the system to your Wi-Fi® network" on
page 9 and "Using the SoundTouch™ app" on page 12.

Listening to Radio
Storing FM/AM radio station presets
Selecting the radio band
Press Radio to turn on the radio to the station last
selected. Press Radio as necessary to select FM or AM.
Listening to FM or AM radio
When you select FM radio, Radio Data System (RDS) information
for the current station is displayed. This is controlled by the RADIO
TEXT setting in the setup menu. To disable RDS and view only the
station frequency, change the RADIO TEXT setting to OFF. See
"Turning RDS on or off" on page 23.

Tuning to an FM/AM station
When you press Radio, Seek/Track, or Tune/MP3 to tune to a
radio station, the frequency appears in the center of the display
while you are tuning.
Station frequency
while tuning
• Press Seek/Track
to find a lower-frequency
station with a strong signal;
• Press Seek/Track
to find a higher-frequency station with a strong signal.
• Press Tune/MP3 < to manually tune to a lower
frequency.
• Press Tune/MP3 > to manually tune to a higher
frequency.
• Press and hold Tune/MP3 < to rapidly lower
the frequency.
• Press and hold Tune/MP3 > to rapidly increase
the frequency.
Note: If AM reception is weak, rotate your Wave® SoundTouch™
music system clockwise or counterclockwise to improve
AM reception. If FM reception is weak, make sure the power
cord is straightened as much as possible. To improve FM
reception, you can install an external FM antenna. See
­"Using an external antenna" on page 21.
14 - English
You can store up to six FM and six AM radio stations
for quick recall using the Presets buttons.
1. Tune to the station you want to save as a preset.
2. Press and hold one of the six Presets buttons until you hear
a double tone and the preset number and station frequency
appear on the display.
3. Press one of the Presets buttons to quickly tune to a
­previously stored FM or AM station.
Note: Storing a preset will replace any station previously stored to
that preset number.
TALK RADIO mode
Talk radio broadcasts can be greatly affected by either the
­microphone selection or the boosting of low frequencies by some
radio stations. They do so in an attempt to improve speech when
heard through conventional radios. In high-quality audio products,
this results in sound that is unnatural or bass heavy. By selecting
the TALK RADIO mode, your Wave® SoundTouchTM music system
automatically adjusts to compensate for artificially boosted low
frequencies.
When the radio is playing, press Play Mode twice to turn
the TALK RADIO mode on (TALK RADIO– ON) or
off (TALK RADIO– OFF).
Note: The TALK RADIO setting is automatically cancelled when
you tune to another station, switch to another source, or
turn your Wave® SoundTouch™ music system off.

Your Wave® SoundTouch™ music system can play MP3 music
files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs. You can easily navigate
through your music files using the Tune/MP3 and Seek/Track
remote control buttons.
Note: MP3 is a music compression technology that reduces a
song’s file size without noticeable effect in the quality of the
sound. Through compression algorithms, the MP3 format
makes it easy for you to store many times the number of
songs you would find on a conventional audio CD. In fact,
an MP3 CD can contain as much music as ten standard
audio CDs on just one disc, which can then be organized
into folders on a PC before being stored on the disc.
Music files on an MP3 CD are played according to the folder
structure on the disc.
For example:
Folders on CD:
Root level
Play order:
Folder 00

Note: When you play a stopped CD it will always resume from the
place it was stopped.
Note: If you eject a CD but do not remove it from the CD player
slot within 10 seconds, the CD player will pull the CD back
into the player and reload it.
CAUTION: DO NOT INSERT mini CDs or non-circular CDs into the
disc player. These discs may not play properly and could interfere
with the system’s ability to eject them.
English - 15
Playing CDs
To play, pause, stop or eject an MP3 CD, use the same remote
control buttons as for an audio CD. See "Playing audio CDs" on
page 15.
The Wave® SoundTouch™ music system will display artist name
and song title information when available on music file CDs.
Note: The audio quality of MP3 CDs is dependent on factors such
as the encoded bit rate, the sampling rate, and the type of
encoder used. The Wave® SoundTouch™ music system
supports MP3 CDs encoded at bit rates of 64kbps or higher,
and sampling rates of 32kHz or higher. It is recommended
that a bit rate of at least 128kbps and a sampling rate of
44.1kHz or better be used.
Note: Playback quality of recorded CD-R and CD-RW discs is
dependent on the CD recording process and software used
to record the disc. An improperly recorded audio CD may
cause the system to exhibit unexpected behavior.
