You get what you pay for!

 

If you can afford the Bose Lifestyle 12 Series II, or if you can find a good deal (vanns.com, nextag.com), then this system is worth every penny. The quickest way to make your decision about whether or not make this purchase is to go to Best Buy or ...

First of all you cannot use the lifestyle 12 without the DVD module. This means that if the Bose DVD or CD player, depending on what series you purchased breaks, you are stuck with a $900 system you cannot use without buying a new module. This is a ...

Very disappointed

 

Recently, I was asked by a friend to look after his house for a few weeks. I knew he had a Bose system so I was looking forward to my stay. The system was quite new, and he was still very excited about it, and gave me a run through on how it all...

Good only in small spaces

 

I owned one of these for 6 months and after selling it and buying a component system I have this to say - It looked a lot better than my new system and it sounded a lot worse than my new system.

Not Much Bang For Your Buck

 

I would like to start by pointing out the low price I paid for this system. I got it on clearance after Christmas from a retail store and $972.75 is what I paid "out the door". I have been looking for a good deal on a lifestyle system for a while and...

Product Specifications

The most popular Bose Home Theater System now gives you the most up-to-date surround sound available - Dolby. If you own or plan to own a DVD player, DSS or digital TV, you'll hear surround sound that's clearer and more lifelike - with two discrete channels in the rear as well as three in the front - the way you hear it in today's movie theaters. And unlike conventional systems, the Lifestyle 12 Series II home theater system also delivers five-speaker surround sound from everything else you play, thanks to Bose Videostage. It delivers an experience rivaling that of 5.1 from surround-encoded VHS tapes, stereo CDs - even older mono TV programs. But the technology doesn't stop there. Innovative Bose Lifestyle system design provides additional surround sound enhancements that make your listening even more enjoyable. New automatic tonal adjustment automatically delivers just the right amount of bass when switching between music and movies. New Bose Digital Dynamic Range compression lets you hear soft sounds - particularly dialogue - even at low, late-night listening levels, and still appreciate the impact of loud special effects. It's all done automatically. You simply can't get this performance anywhere else. What's more, with the Lifestyle 12 system, the equipment never gets in the way of your experience. All you need arrives in one box. Five cube speaker arrays, each about the size of a wine glass, fill your room with dramatic sound for movies and music. The Acoustimass module delivers deep, rich bass with lots of impact - but no audible distortion, so you can hide it easily almost anywhere. And the slim music center with CD player and AM/FM stereo tuner replaces a complex rack of equipment. The easy-to-use remote control works through walls and floors. Just push one button to enjoy five-speaker surround sound from any source. Driver Complement includes two magnetically-shielded Bose 2.5" drivers in each cube speaker array and two 5.25" woofers in Acoustmass module.
