Your room is unique. So is this system.

The hidden beauty of the Lifestyle® 48 III DVD system lies in the Bose technologies that make enjoying music and movies intuitively simple. Start with your main room—the size, shape, textures and other elements that affect the sound you hear. The ADAPTiQ system, found only in Lifestyle® DVD systems, was developed to analyze your room and then adjust the Lifestyle® system for a consistent, high-quality performance each time you listen.

No need to move furniture, speakers or anything else to get the best possible sound in your room. Just sit in up to five of your preferred listening spots, and allow the ADAPTiQ system to automatically make the necessary adjustments.

Meet your digital DJ

Consider the hassle of managing your treasured, but unwieldy, CD collection. The Lifestyle® III 48 DVD system changes all that with unique Bose technology that stores up to 340 hours of music. The uMusic™ intelligent playback system actually listens to your music and learns your preferences, then makes selections based on what you like. No more searching for CDs or deciding which tracks to listen to. Whatever mood you’re in, the uMusic system is ready with just the songs you want to hear.

And you can hear them almost anywhere. Bose® link enables quality sound in as many as 14 additional rooms, even outdoors. Just add compatible Bose products, and you can have independent volume control in each room, as well as access to two different audio streams from the same Lifestyle® system.

Fill your room with sound, not equipment

The Lifestyle® III 48 DVD system features award-winning Jewel Cube® speaker arrays—measuring only 4½" high—for dramatically lifelike sound. These are our smallest and most powerful speaker arrays, yet they deliver sound you’d expect from speakers many times their size. And a sleek horizontal center channel speaker locks dialogue on screen while making a nice match with flat-panel televisions.

The proprietary Acoustimass® module—30% smaller than the previous model— produces resounding low notes that bring action sequences to life and adds fullness to music. And the Acoustimass module can be placed out of sight, so all the sound seems to come from the smaller speakers.

It loves to play your classics, too

Your interest in digital media doesn’t mean you want to abandon your collection of older films and TV shows on VHS. The Lifestyle® III 48 DVD system features proprietary Bose technologies to freshen up those prized possessions. Videostage® 5 decoding circuitry and digital 5.1 decoding ensure a high-quality 5.1-channel surround experience from practically any source.

The Lifestyle® III 48 DVD system puts it all together with innovative approaches that let you easily customize your listening experience. All with the performance, elegance and simplicity you expect from Bose.
