Review Summary

The Lifestyle 48 is the top of Bose's collection of Lifestyle tabletop DVD home theaters. The Lifestyle 48 makes use of Bose's small but potent Direct/Reflecting cube speakers that provide a rich sound response and at the same time blending into the decor.

Videostage 5 decoding and post-processing circuitry delivers a high-quality, five-channel surround sound experience from any source; DVDs, videocassettes stereo syatem, CDs, even TV shows and movies. It gives you amazing surround sound from five tiny speakers and an Acoustimass (subwoofer) module. These speakers work together to fill your room with surprisingly powerful theater sound for movies and music. The disc player can handle DVD-Video, DVD-R, CD, CD-R/RW and discs holding MP3 files, and the receiver is able to internally decode Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks. Music from CD can be recorded to the hard drive; once stored, the integrated uMusic playback system can sort the files by listener preference and develop playlists of favorite music. The Lifestyle 48 has numerous inputs and outputs, including component video, S-video, and composite video outputs, four analog audio inputs, four coaxial digital audio inputs, and one optical digital audio input.

Having a stunning sound, compact size, and expandable to deliver to other rooms, and on top easy to operate and program make the Lifestyle 48 an irresistible buy.
