Bose® LIFESTYLE® 48 Series III Details

The Bose® Lifestyle® 48 Series III DVD home entertainment system will change the way you think about movies, music ... even your CD collection. Digitally store and organize up to 340 hours of digital music in the media center, featuring a progressive scan DVD/CD player. The ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system analyzes your room and adjusts your Lifestyle® system's sound for great performance. Tiny, award-winning Jewel Cube® speakers arrays and a newly designed horizontal center channel speaker fill your room with wondrous surround sound. And there’s more. Bose® link allows connections for compatible Bose products in as many as 14 additional rooms.

The hidden beauty of the Lifestyle® 48 III DVD system lies in the Bose technologies that make enjoying music and movies intuitively simple. Start with your main room—the size, shape, textures and other elements that affect the sound you hear. The ADAPTiQ system, found only in Lifestyle® DVD systems, was developed to analyze your room and then adjust the Lifestyle® system for a consistent, high-quality performance each time you listen.

No need to move furniture, speakers or anything else to get the best possible sound in your room. Just sit in up to five of your preferred listening spots, and allow the ADAPTiQ system to automatically make the necessary adjustments.

Now features speakers that blend even more seamlessly into your décor. Introducing a smaller Acoustimass® module and new that integrates with the latest flat panel televisions.

  • This system now features speakers that blend even more seamlessly into your décor.
  • New sleek horizontal center channel integrates with today’s flat panel video displays.
  • New smaller Acoustimass® module produces powerful sound effects and hides more easily out of sight.
  • Award-winning Jewel Cube® speaker arrays utilize design innovations designs such as a nautilus-shaped port and Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology to deliver more open, spacious sound throughout the listening area.
  • Proprietary technology in the Acoustimass® module delivers powerful, low-frequency sound effects used in today’s movies. You can hide the module out of sight, and all the sound seems to come from the tiny cube speakers.
  • ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system, only from Bose, analyzes and adjusts the system’s sound to the size and shape of your room, the placement of your speakers, and the locations where you sit to listen. As a result, you can enjoy greater freedom of speaker placement and the peace of mind that your system is delivering a quality Bose® performance.
  • Digitally stores 340 hours of your CDs.
  • uMusic® intelligent playback system revolutionizes how you listen to music. Takes your stored music collection to a whole new level by “learning” your musical preferences.
  • Bose® link allows other Bose speakers and systems to seamlessly connect to a Lifestyle® system. Your Lifestyle® system becomes the center of a multi-room expansion solution that lets you enjoy sound throughout your home – even outdoors.

Pros
  • Easy To Setup
  • Interfaces Well With TV
  • Intuitive Controls
  • AdaptIQ works great
  • Cables provided
  • Small package big sound
Cons
  • Limited connections
Best Uses: Movies, Surround Sound Solution, CD music  Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend  
Product Review: The sound is awesome! It's hard to pinpoint the source, unlike with conventional big-speaker systems. The bass is really nice and won't distort at higher volumes. With some fine tuning it will match your preferences. Design makes operation easy and keeps the focus on the sound instead of the equipment. Setup is a breeze: no cutting wires, no technical settings to sort through, just plug-and-play. Lacks a few connections that would be nice but overall is nothing short of amazing. Was this review helpful to you? Yes/No
