Bose Lifestyle 38 Home Theater System Review and Prices

 

The Bose Lifestyle 38 is the perfect home theater system for someone who enjoys music as much as they enjoy movies, provided they have a rather large budget.

Bose Lifestyle 38

 

The Bose Lifestyle 38 home entertainment system plays favourites - yours. It can store up to 200 CDs and then it remembers what you like best and automatically serves up those tracks for playback.

Adequate music quality

The uMusic feature is like having a stubborn and opinionated nanny manage my music

Frustration

 

Love the sound but I've had problems even the Bose tech support, and tech guys as Best Buy can't figure out. Seems to be some compatibility problem with the V2 module. HDMI from the V2 module to the satellite box causes flicker on my Samsung 56" DLPTV,...

Great Sound, easy set up; even for a dumb SOB like me

Maybe some software glitch, it's only been on the market a short time
