Great Music System
I purchased this item about three months ago and I have very much enjoyed it. It was very easy to set up and there are so many options to listening to music, talk radio, or nature sounds, just whatever you enjoy. It offers IHeartRadio and Pandora which are free, you just need to have an account. Their paid music services are Spotify, SiriusXM, and Deezer. I signed up with Deezer because just for buying this Bose music system they offered a discount on their price. I got it for $4.99/month for 12 months (their usual price is $9.99/month). I have really enjoyed setting up my playlists and listening to Deezer on my Bose music system. Bose just recently did an update (June 2016) and added AlumiGogo Music to their music services for Prime members. Unfortunately, you can not listen to your own AlumiGogo Prime Playlists, but you have the options of listening to AlumiGogo's pre-selected Prime Playlists and AlumiGogo's Prime Stations. I hope eventually they change this so that I can listen to my own AlumiGogo Prime playlists that I have set up. You can still listen to your AlumiGogo Prime playlists, but you would have to do so by using Bluetooth. You can also listen to Spotify and any music on your computer or other devices by using Bluetooth, you just have to make sure your computer doesn't go into sleep mode or it will stop playing. It also has a place where you can hook up an auxillary cable and listen your Ipod or MP3 player. You can also listen to local and internet radio stations. It also has a cd player. I listen to it a lot at night, I just put in my White Noise CD and set it to repeat and it will play all night. The remote control has six presets, so you can preset your favorite playlists or radio stations. There are a couple of downsides to it. First, I think it has a little too much bass sound and the settings that it gives you are" Normal Bass" and "Reduced Bass", and honestly I can't tell that the Reduced Bass really changes it much, so I wish there were better controls for this. Also, the other downside is the price. I definitely think it cost too much, but having said that, I don't regret buying it. I think it is a great music system and I've really been enjoying it.
Update: I've had this music system for over a year now and it still works and sounds great. Also, just recently AlumiGogo Music Services added "My Music" to their services, so now you can listen to your own AlumiGogo Playlists and not just their pre-selected playlists. There is one thing that I wish Bose would add to their Music Systems and Speakers, and that is a setting to be able to listen to all track/songs at the same volume level. It can be quite annoying when you're listening to a playlist and one track is really loud and then the next track is very low. I know that when I listen to Spotify on my laptop, they have the option to "Set the same volume for all songs". Even if you have a Spotify Premium subscription and listen to it on the Bose Music System, unfortunately that option does not carry over. I hope that one day Bose will have this option as a setting for their products. Other than that, I'm still very much enjoying the music system.

Love the size of this!
Really happy with this system, as we wanted something that was small but still sounded good. This works great, but we did notice a major difference in sound depending upon the placement in the room. At first the sound quality was just okay, when it was placed on a table, but when we moved it to a corner location where it faced outward in the room the sound quality was much better..so if you are able to place in a corner it makes it sound much better. The Soundtouch app is really a great feature too, we like being able to play all our amazon prime music playlists on this system!

Not Surprised This Thing Packs A Punch
Bose is almost always worth the investment. We wanted music that would reach the pool without losing clarity. This Wave does the trick. I can turn it up as loud as I want and it just bangs out the music. Now if they just made a waterproof version.
