Summary: I moved from a Definitive home theater ( floor standing Mythos plus center and surround , Denon 3210 amplifier etc ...) due to lack of space in my apartment. This is my first experience with Bose and I should say the product is amazing with the very small foot print and installation went so easy thanks to the accurate and complete user friendly manual.
Just can't beat bose for looks and sound combination.

Summary: Had larger system for years which sounded great but did not like all the space it took up in entertainment center or floor space given to very nice floor standing speakers. After much thought I ordered the bose system. I like watching a few movies and tv shows but love listening to all kinds of music which I do several hours a week. Could not ask for a better quality of sound for my personal taste of music listening and tv viewing.
Summary: Purchased online for lower price. The whole package is very heavy and UPS won't make it to my door since there is no elevator in the building. They won't even help.. Sad about that. The whole package is separated into small package within the big box and it is really easy to set up. There is a installation wizard kind of procedure helping you set up the system. You can connect all your consoles together and just use one remote control. It's a very good feature.
Pros: + Surround sound effects are simply incredible + Intergration to my entire home music and video needs + Excellent distance of remote control + Built in IR blaster to control other non-Bose components, except TV + Very easy to set up
Cons: - No option to manually balance L/R speaker balance - TV control requires line of sight - Expensive system
Summary: Experienced the difference when I heard the first sound frome one of those speakers during the installation. Just one sound, when I heard it, I was looking around the room to find where it is came from. It seems like the sound from somewhere in the air, but the speakers. I have Bose companion 3 and Bose wave music system iii also. They are all good for the different use, i love them. Bose - exellent sound system.
Summary: I personally don't have this system, but one of my good friends does i have watched several movies played video games and listened to music on this system. I am always amazed on how much sound comes from these small speakers. The sound is very clean and very clear the highs are very good and the lows are excellent but sometimes the mid range frequency can be lost sometimes.
Summary: I have been using Bose Home Theater System for the last 10 years. The Lifestyle V35 is simply great and value for money. All devices can now be connect to the bose system and furthermore the comfort of using the bose remote to control all these devices.
Summary: I read all the reviews about how the Bose systems are overpriced and you can get a better sounding system for less money if you buy all the pieces yourself....if you are someone that thinks this then go for it!!! As for me, I went to the Bose store, sat in their perfectly made theater room (not realistic for everyday living rooms), and listened to the different Bose entertainment center options, then decided that the smaller, better sounding speakers were the way to go.
