Summary: Reading some of these responses, I must be death or something. I've had the system for 10 years and absolutely love it. I've never had one problem with it. The clarity is amazing and it's incredibly loud without losing clarity.
Summary: As with all things, there is always the "Best". In home theater it has always been Bose Lifestyle. The 38 series III is rated one of the top of this group. I could never afford a new one, but now I have it and I am even more impressed then before.
Summary: I decided to try this lifestyle 38 instead of the 3-2-1. I love the fact you can load 300 + hrs of music onto the media center. Its sound is just as if you were in a theater! Im so glad we spent the little extra to get the Lifestyle series.
Excellent Sound Quality, what better to expect than a Bose

Summary: The Bose Lifestyle system has amazing sound quality. The tine speakers that come along with this producing amazing sound. The surrond on this is excellent as well. Though a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.
Summary: This review is actually for the Series I Lifestyle 38. All I have to say is that Bose has very good customer service. My unit is over 6-years old and the hard drive broke. I called up customer service, and they are refurbishing the whole unit and giving me a 1 year warranty for $200.
Summary: We have enjoyed our system for 4 years now. The quality and sound is everything it is advertised to be. Sound effects and music videos could not be better. Sound is great from any seat in the room. I think it is best suited for average sized rooms of about 15x20 ft or smaller.
