I have 2 SA3 amplifiers that drive outdoor speakers at a weekend getaway(cabin) property. We have many wonderful memories of unbelievable music in front of an outdoor fire listening to our Bose lifestyle system. In the last 6 years, I have had to replace 2 different units. Thankfully, Bose support is 2nd to none and they will get you a replacement at a refurbished cost of around $70.00 if I remember. Besides the Lifestyle system and the remote amps being a little finicky, my ONLY beef is the connector. It is not a traditional speaker wire connector and if you use thick wire to drive the power, good luck. Unfortunately, you will need a flat eyeglass screwdriver and a set of eyes younger than 50. I will be replacing my second SA3 with Bose support soon. We can't say enough about the sound quality, but sure wish they would be less problematic. If I ever build another house, I would consider using this same system if they would only fix the speaker connectors.

Lifestyle SA-3 amplifier

I have two Bose 901 speakers. Because the speakers are very good, I decided to buy a high quality amplifier (Bose SA-3 Lifestyle) to go with them. After the SA-3 amplifier arrived I discovered that it can only be turned on or off with a Bose Lifestyle remote control. Not wanting to pay another $99 (plus sales tax and shipping), for a remote, I sent the SA-3 back to Amazon.

I shipped the amplifier back on Friday. By Monday morning I already received a full refund (including shipping). I love Amazon's service!
