| | Simplicity of setup and programming through the Unify Intelligent Integration System.

The Lifestyle T20 system offers breakthrough simplicity with the new Unify Intelligent Integration System. This proprietary technology enables a step-by-step walkthrough of your system setup. As you're attaching components to the control console, the system recommends the best connectors via onscreen messages. It even confirms that the connection was made properly. Each connected product is automatically added to the source menu accessed on your TV screen. No more toggling through video inputs to find your source. If you add a Blu-ray player, it will be shown as a "Blu-ray player" in the onscreen menu. This makes it easy and intuitive for anyone to use the Unify system. Unify technology also simplifies programming your Bose remote to control your Lifestyle system and most anything attached to it. During setup, the Unify system references an internal database to identify each connected product, and automatically teaches the Bose remote to control it.
Experience Lifelike Surround Sound
The Lifestyle T20 home theater system uses Direct/Reflecting cube speakers to fill your room with compelling surround sound. You'll hear movies, music and sports come to life in convincing detail. The small speakers work in concert with a hideaway Acoustimass module. Exclusive technology in the module helps provide the emotional intensity you feel at the theater or in a concert hall.
Sound Designed for Your Room
Your room is unique, with size, shape, textures and other elements affecting the sound you hear. The ADAPTiQ® system was developed to analyze your room and then adjust the Lifestyle surround sound system for a consistent, high quality performance.

Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964, but the commitment actually began years earlier. In the late 1950s, Dr. Bose, then a graduate student, purchased a stereo system based on its impressive technical specifications. The avid music enthusiast was disappointed to discover the speakers didn't reproduce the sound of a live performance-and he became determined to recreate that lifelike audio experience for listeners. After extensive research, Dr. Bose and colleagues introduced the groundbreaking 901® Direct/Reflecting® speakers in 1968. Their lifelike sound won immediate and widespread acclaim. Since those early days of 901 speakers, Bose engineers have kept their focus on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the product featured here, with advances that ensure premium performance and convenience.
