Advanced technologies for customized performance

Lifestyle® system audio is tailored to the acoustics of your room with the ADAPTiQ® system. This proprietary technology analyzes your room and then automatically adjusts the Lifestyle® home theater audio system for a consistent, high quality performance in any room.

The uMusic® system digitally stores and organizes up to 340 hours of music from your CDs in your media center. The more you listen, the more it learns - all to play just the music you want to hear. And you can hear that music almost anywhere around your home with Bose® link technology.

The VS-2 video enhancer simplifies the integration of your Lifestyle® DVD home theater system with other sources. It automatically synchronizes the audio and video you want at the touch of a button. You'll receive the highest video resolution your TV can accept, all the way up to 1080p over HDMI. And you'll reduce the wiring to the back of the television to just one connection.


ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system provides greater freedom of speaker placement. It analyzes the way your room's dimensions and other variables affect sound, then automatically adjusts the sound of your Lifestyle® surround sound system to the acoustics of your room.

uMusic® intelligent playback system digitally stores thousands of songs in the media center, freeing you from managing a cumbersome CD collection. Rate your favorites, skip the songs you don't like. This system will learn - and deliver - your musical preferences.

Bose® link whole-home audio technology lets you connect compatible Bose products to your Lifestyle® home entertainment system for listening in as many as 14 additional rooms - even outdoors.

Acoustimass module works in concert with the small speakers to deliver a fuller range of theater sound and effects. The patented Bose design produces low frequencies for all channels with no audible distortion.

VS-2 video enhancer simplifies the integration of a Lifestyle® system with other video sources, including those with HDMI. Connect just one wire from the VS-2 video enhancer to the back of your TV, and receive the correct audio and video with the press of one button.

Digital 5.1 decoding provides improved realism from 5.1-encoded DVDs, DBS or HDTV.

Proprietary Videostage® 5 decoding and post-processing circuitry, combined with digital 5.1 decoding and DTS®, helps deliver a high quality, five-channel surround sound experience from practically any source: DVDs, videocassettes, stereo CDs, even older mono TV shows and movies.

Digital Dynamic Range® speaker compression circuitry enables you to hear soft sounds (particularly dialogue) even at low volumes - and still appreciate the impact of loud special effects.

Control integration enables the Lifestyle® system's radio-frequency remote to operate most popular functions on other infrared-receiving equipment in your home entertainment system: TV, VCR, PVR, cable box or satellite receiver. TV sensor makes turning on your home entertainment system a one-button operation.

Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology delivers lifelike spaciousness from a natural balance of reflected and direct sound - similar to a live performance.
