Lifestyle® 535 and 525 systems deliver vivid surround sound from five dynamic speakers, all for a singular audio experience you’ll want to enjoy again and again. Connect up to 6 HD video and audio sources—like your 3D Blu-ray Disc™ player, cable box or gaming system—with guided set up. And with exclusive Bose® Unify® technology, everything works easily and seamlessly as a single system. The system also includes a built-in AM/FM tuner and dock for your iPod or iPhone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There’s a level of versatility with this system you’re going to love—and it goes well beyond the thrill of home theater. With an optional Wi-Fi® adapter (available 2014), you can stream Internet radio and playlists from your music library. All at the touch of a button on your remote. 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. It's all made possible by SoundTouch™ and it will soon be available with all of our Lifestyle® systems.
