NEWS: Bose DABbles in digital future

Bose Wave

Coming with a remote control, Bose ensures set-up is simple, and you can be listening to Internet radio or your MP3s in no time. Set for release this month, the MusicMonitors will cost £279. Last but far from least is Bose's latest addition to its Wave family of music systems, the Wave music system-DAB (pictured, top) – and we promise you that's the system's correct name. As the new kid on the Wave block, this machine adds a DAB tuner to its predecessors' CD player and FM/AM radio functionality. The DAB module sits in a separate unit to the main system, connected by a five-foot extension cable, allowing a degree of fleixbility with placement. The slot-loading CD player is still there, alongside the FM/AM tuner, and there is of course a remote control. Available in platinum white and graphite grey, it will retail for £499, while existing Wave radio owners can choose to add the DAB module for £149.
