Excerpt: Bose is a company in India .It is very famous for home products. The products are of very high Quality. I always buy all my home products from Bose store though they are costly. This is because of the quality.
Excerpt: I purchased my Bose Lifestyle 48 DVD Home Entertainment System last year from the Bose web-site. I had always been interested in Bose products but could never afford them. I had been to a friends house some years ago who had a Bose system.
Summary: We really like this system. The surround sound is great and music is good also. Not worth 4000 but at a lower price point it will fill a large room with good sound. If you can find it at a lower price buy it.
Summary: Bought a system from friend but missing the audio input cable, center speaker and four speaker grills. Called Bose customer service spoke with Brian and he was patient with me going through my problem. Put my order in and arrived on time but with wrong input cable again called Bose and Mario this time answered when through the process he was able to find the right cable and here's the best thing Mario found out the price differential and gave me the credit.
Summary: All is fine, music, sound, quality and shipping very fast. One only problem is the different voltage between USA (110 volt) and Italy (220 volt): for many money that we paid for this bose system, i think it would be much better if all components were made in dual voltage
Summary: I love Bose. I used to sing their praises like a blind follower. "The best audio anywhere! It is unbeatable!" Well, the audio is awesome, but their video is crap. The Lifestyle 48 can't play DVD or Netflix or anything without something going wrong with the video. Multiple calls to customer service is making me wish I didn't pay thousands of dollars for this. Please. I've learned from other Amazon reviews in the past, BUY SOMETHING ELSE!
Summary: I bought Bose Lifestyle 48 System over a year ago. Overall video and audio are good, but minor problems include: a) No Blue-Ray capability for DVD's b) Poor synchronization of remotes for peripherals like TV & cable; despite what Bose store reps tell you, you can't control eveything with one push of the button - you might as well keep all your remotes.
Summary: I Purchased the Lifestyle 48 when it first came out. Did not take long to see lack of newer video formats, but I could live with that. I am very happy with sound performance and have no complaints, and don't care about what material speakers are made of. They sound great and no issues. I have had remote control working the unit issues and they sent me a new remote no charge, but still operates inconsistently.
