Easy to set up

Unify® intelligent integration system

The Unify® intelligent integration system walks you through system set up, step by step. As you're connecting components to the control console, the system recommends the best connectors via on-screen messages. It even confirms that the connection was made properly.

Ultra-simple remote control.

Easy to use

Unify® technology also simplifies programming your Bose remote to control your Lifestyle® system and most anything attached to it. During set up, the Unify® system identifies each connected component, and automatically teaches the Bose remote to control it. Plus, you'll view system information, including FM/AM status, on the Bose remote's LCD screen.

And once you're set up ...

You'll experience riveting surround sound for everything you watch. These systems feature compact cube speakers that blend elegantly into your room. The output is something you'd expect from speakers many times their size. That performance is complemented by an Acoustimass® module that can be placed in a corner or out of view. Exclusive technology in the module helps provide the emotional intensity you feel at the cinema or in a concert hall. Even hidden out of sight, its impact can't be missed.

Sound designed for your room

Your room is unique, with size, shape, textures and other elements affecting the sound you hear. The ADAPTiQ® system was developed to analyse your room and then adjust the Lifestyle® system's sound for a consistent, high-quality performance.

Imagine: You've just finished watching an action-packed blockbuster. Then you switch right over to your favourite Internet radio station without even reaching for your smartphone.
