Today, Bose has introduced the Wave® music system – SoundLink™. Now, the acclaimed Wave® music system can play music from a computer –- wirelessly and easily –- in any room of the home.

The new Wave® music system - SoundLink™ was designed to be a complete and versatile system, providing flexibility for users who want to listen to music available on their computer, but don't want to be at their computer to enjoy it. It features the full capabilities of the Wave® music system: a slot-load CD player, digital AM/FM tuner and auxiliary input for playing other audio sources, and maintains its renowned audio performance in a small and elegant design.

Setup is easy -- no software or Wi-Fi connection is required. The included SoundLink™ adapter connects to the Bose® link port located on the back of the Wave® music system console. Simply plug the SoundLink™ USB key into the computer, select music -- from iTunes, Pandora, or any other Internet radio or music source -– and the audio will stream to the Wave® music system – SoundLink™ via a long-range wireless link that works through most walls and floors.
