Summary: I previously had a Lifestyle 28 5.1 channel system. Six speakers including the subwoofer. This two speaker system blows the 5 speaker Lifestyle 28 out of the water. All I can say is buy it while you can.
Summary: For starters I do not nor have never worked for Bose. I have owned many high end two channel sound systems and for pure sound quality they outperformed the LS 235. With that said, this is an amazing sounding system for what it is! It has a very "natural" sound and avoids the "boxy" sound of really poor speakers. If you truly want an ultra high resolution sound the Bose may not be for you.
Summary: So many people criticize Bose, I don't know why. Personally, I believe it is because they are people that need to be out of the mainstream and or are cheap. Either way, this system sounds fantastic, and is worth the money. First, the remote is very nice and easy to use. The console is very easy to install with onscreen instructions throughout most. Unify system works great. Speakers themselves are nice.
Summary: I have owned some very high end audio equipment in the past. My most recent high end equipment was a 2.0 system including a pair of Dynaudio Contour 1.3 SE monitors and a Krell KAV-400xi integrated amplifier, this was $6000.00 worth of equipment. The Krell/Dynaudio system was, in a word, astonishing. Fast forward a couple of years. I recently purchased my girlfriend a Bose Wave Music System III (premium bundle) because it was what she wanted in her apartment.
Summary: Sin duda es el mejor equipo de sonido teatro en casa que he comprado, el precio vale la calidad que tiene. La tecnología es insuperable contra cualquier equipo de las marcas mas comerciales que están en la calle. Lo recomiendo 100% para quienes aman el buen sonido.
Summary: This is not a 5.1 system and never will be. That said, I have a very challenging room that is 25 ft by 12 feet with the layout such that a corner position for the TV / entertainment console is the only thing that works (windows, French doors, and a fireplace on the three sides without the couch are pretty much unchangeable).
Summary: This system was easy enough to hook up but I am disappointed in the sound. My tv is 8 feer away and most of the time I have the sound turned up really high to hear it. When the commercials come on, I have to turn it down. Currently my cable box is hooked up directly to the tv. I cannot tell any difference in the sound but don't have to crank up the volume to hear it. This is an expensive piece of junk and I will give it away. I will never buy another Bose product.
