The benefits of research
Over fourteen years of research by Bose Corporation
brings you the benefits of award-winning patented
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® music system III
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® music system III 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 music

CDs
Your Wave® music system III 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.
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, reload it, and start playing.

The Wave® music system III 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® music system III
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.
