The Lifestyle® 28 Series III DVD home entertainment system adds exhilarating sound to your movies and music with performance you expect from Bose. It customizes home theater system sound to your room with the innovative ADAPTiQ® system. The stylish media center features a progressive scan DVD/CD player and AM/FM tuner. Direct/Reflecting® cube speaker arrays and a horizontal center-channel speaker fill your room with spacious surround sound. From premium performance to elegance, the Lifestyle® 28 DVD home theater audio system is made for your room-with all its unique characteristics. Its ADAPTiQ audio calibration system delivers a consistent surround sound presentation in any room, while offering greater freedom of speaker placement. This proprietary technology analyzes and adjusts the home theater system's sound to your room's dimensions, speaker placement and preferred seating locations. Great sound never looked so good Direct/Reflecting® cube speaker arrays, standing roughly 6" high, blend nicely with your décor. They combine with a sleek, horizontal center-channel speaker to deliver a level of sound you'd expect from much larger speakers. And the Acoustimass® module reproduces deep low notes while stationed inconspicuously almost anywhere in your room. The brushed silver media center elegantly accomplishes everything that conventional DVD home theater systems use multiple components to achieve. But it's also the hub of a whole-home entertainment system, made possible by Bose® link technology. So you can have independent volume control in each room, as well as access to two different audio streams from the same Lifestyle® home entertainment system.
Top Customer Reviews
At that point, I decided I'd keep the speakers and buy a new receiver ($165 repair + $300 HDMI box = $465 = modern receiver with a bazillion connections). The receiver arrived and I discovered the Acoustimass speakers that come with the Lifestyle 28 have a proprietary connector that only works with Bose products, unlike the standalone Acoustimass speakers which can connect to everything.
If I had it to do over again, I would not buy this product because of the proprietary connectors on the speakers. Most modern receivers have microphones that you can use to optimize the sound in your space--this was a big selling point for me when I bought the Bose. I'll give Bose points for repairing the product and issuing a new warranty on it long after the purchase.
