VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE and VERY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER
13 December 2010
Summary: I paid $3999 for this poorly designed system with no HDMI connection option. Now they are asking from me another $299 to just add HDMI. At this point I am very frustrated and do not recommend Bose to anyone. You can easily get a better system with only for $400-500 from Sony, Panasonic etc..
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...
Summary: So this is what you get for $4,000. I've listened to this system many times, although I do not own it. I don't hear anything special about it and can't believe the high cost. I would not every pay $4,000 or even $2,000 for this. This fits between $500-$1,000 like many of the HTIB systems.
It doesn't work as advertised - so what are you paying for?

Summary: I've owned an LS48 for around 9 months and have found it to be riddled with problems. The hard disk crashes on a frequent basis (daily) rendering it unable to playback any of your digital audio, the internal music database is out of date and does not recgonise any new CD's you may purchase - they...
Summary: Well the best thing I can say about Bose is if you put everything back in the carton and run back to the store within 2 weeks they'll give you a full refund without much hassle. I did exactly that..
Excerpt: This system is the rolls royce of Bose''s Home Theatre Range. It really is outstanding. Just like everything Bose, the quality is breathe taking. The sounds fill your room just like when your at the cinema.
Pros: Everything else!
Cons: -Price, not cheap but still cheaper than some top end makes. -No Blu-ray drive.
