I think that Cambridge Soundworks is trying to get rid of the last of their inventory of Model 88 table radios (now that they have the Radio 740) because I was in Wal-Mart one day and I stopped in their electronics department and I saw the Model 88CD sitting on the shelf with the other mini-systems. I turned it on and listened to the demo CD, and the system sounded fabulous as compared to the Bose Wave Radio. It had deeper lows with better transient response, and true stereo sound. Kloss must certainly have been a genius of design to fit a powered subwoofer inside that box. I must say, it was the best sound in the place. Anyway, it's at Wal-Mart now for $240, and it's the one with the CD player. So if you're looking for a REAL clock radio, I definitely suggest you check this one out. Then when you wake to music in the morking you won't wake to the sound of two distorting paper tweeters, but a REAL clock radio that actually IS everything the Bose Wave Radio aspires to be.
