Our take on the Bose® Lifestyle® 35

by Tom Mathew
Bose

The Bose Lifestyle® 35 system has the versatility and power to handle all your movie-watching and music-listening needs. It's a complete, easy-to-use DVD home theater system — and it's completely discreet, too, thanks to Bose's ultra-compact Jewel Cube® satellite speaker arrays. Despite standing less than 4-1/2" tall, they'll fill your room with deep, rich Bose sound when used in tandem with the included hideaway Acoustimass® module. And the satellites' swiveling design lets you tailor a perfect blend of direct and reflected sound for your listening area.

Getting exactly the right sound is easy, too, thanks to the included ADAPTiQ™ audio calibration system. It's a one-time setup process that's incredibly easy: Just put on the supplied headset equipped with built-in microphones, sit in 5 of your favorite spots to enjoy music and home theater, and the ADAPTiQ™ system does the rest! The included Bose proprietary software analyzes a series of test tones, allowing your Lifestyle® system to adjust itself for optimum performance in your room.

The Lifestyle® 35's media center houses a DVD/CD player that also plays audio CD-Rs and CD-RWs, and even MP3 CDs! It also contains an AM/FM tuner with 50 presets for your favorite stations. Built-in decoding for Dolby® Digital and DTS® provides you with incredible DVD home theater thrills, while Bose's proprietary Videostage® 5.1 steering creates exciting 5.1-channel sound from sources like CDs, VHS tapes, and even mono TV broadcasts. You can control the system — plus your TV, VCR, and cable box or satellite receiver — from anywhere in your home using the multibrand RF remote.

The media center includes enough digital and analog inputs to allow connection of up to four external devices (such as a VCR, your TV's sound, a tape deck, and a CD mega changer), plus optical and coaxial digital outs that allow you to send direct digital signals to a CD-R or MD deck. You also get one video pass-through for composite and S-video, a very handy feature if your TV only has one set of inputs. And you can output a component video signal using the included adapter.

To maximize your entertainment options, the Lifestyle® 35 system also offers dual-zone capability. Dual-zone use requires optional Zone 2 Stereo Adapter Kit; an additional set of Bose powered speakers or a Bose Wave® radio; and an extension cable available directly from Bose. Extension cable is already included with optional Lifestyle® powered speakers.

Features

Media Center: The stylish media center is only slightly larger than a notebook computer, but is packed with features. It includes an integrated DVD player and AM/FM tuner and provides access to more of today's most popular audio and video content, including CD, CD-R/RW, PCM, Digital 5.1, MP3 on CD and MPEG-2. It incorporates advanced radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR) and TV power sensing, and works with the universal radio frequency remote for control integration.

Acoustimass Module: Innovative technology within the improved Acoustimass module in the Lifestyle 35 system combines to deliver the clarity of pure bass reproduction down to the lowest frequencies, even at the loudest levels. The design allows prodigious airflow at the lowest bass frequencies, working to recreate bass so natural and pure, its source is almost impossible to localize.

Jewel Cube Speakers: The award-winning Jewel Cube speakers are the most visible components of our Lifestyle systems. The product of more than 40 different innovations and technologies, they're about the size of a computer mouse, yet they're able to fill a room with rich, lifelike sound.

Surround Sound Decoding: The Media Center has built-in Dolby Digital and DTS decoders. For analog sources, Bose's Videostage 5 decoding circuitry (see below) is included.

Videostage 5 Decoding Circuitry: While digital 5.1 decoding takes the home theater experience to a new level, you can enjoy it only from properly encoded materials like DVDs, digital satellite broadcasts and HDTV. Unlike conventional digital systems, the Bose Videostage 5 decoding circuitry gives you a five-channel surround sound experience from everything you listen to, including VHS tapes, stereo CDs, even mono TV programs.

Dual-Zone Capability: Using Bose powered speakers, or a Bose Wave radio, and the RC-28S Stereo Expansion Kit, you can enjoy the same source at the same time in two different rooms, or two different sources at the same time in two different rooms.

On-Screen Settings Menu: The on-screen settings menu allows for simple and efficient system control.

Audio Settings: You can adjust the following audio settings:

  • Movie EQ: automatically sets bass and treble compensation for the proper playback of movie sound tracks

  • Range Compression: range compression automatically adjusts the volume to allow you to hear soft sounds and to prevent you from being overwhelmed by a loud special effect, such as an explosion

  • Mono Decoding: automatically engages Bose Videostage decoding when a Dolby Digital bitstream indicates that it contains a mono program

  • Center Channel: focuses or softens the presentation of center-channel sound

MP3 Playback: This system can play MP3 files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs.

Repeat Play: When playing a DVD, you can repeat the current chapter. When playing an audio CD, you can repeat the current track or the entire disc. Using the AB Repeat feature, you can repeat a portion of a DVD by selecting the starting and stopping points for the section to be repeated.

Random Play: When playing an audio CD, you can play the tracks in random order.

Multi-Angle Display: This function allows you to choose the viewing angle of scenes that were shot from a number of different angles. Note: This function is limited to DVDs recorded with multiple camera angles.

Scan Search: When playing a DVD, there are three fast-play speeds in both directions.

Station Presets: The built-in tuner allows you to store up to 25 AM and 25 FM stations. Once a station is stored in memory, you can select it using the remote control or the on-screen settings menu.

Parental Control: This system allows you to set playback restrictions for DVDs using Parental Control. Parental Control allows you to restrict playback according to a predetermined level. You can select a Parental Control rating from 0-8, which is protected by a 4-digit password.

Sleep Timer: The sleep timer turns the system off after a set period of time. You can adjust the sleep timer from 1 to 99 minutes.

Display Brightness: The display on the Media Center can be adjusted to one of seven brightness levels.

House Code Settings: Each Lifestyle remote uses a system of matching house codes to communicate with its corresponding Media Center. If commands given from your remote ever conflict with those of another nearby Lifestyle system, you can easily set a new house code for your system.

Selectable Video Format: The system can output video in NTSC or PAL format.

Changing the Video Output for Component Video Connections: If your TV or video monitor is capable of component video input signals, and you have connected your TV to your system using the component video adapter (included), you must change the video output setting in the settings menu to "YPbPr". This will enable the media center to output a component video signal through the S-video and composite video jacks.

ADAPTiQ Audio Calibration System

Product Overview: The Bose ADAPTiQ Audio Calibration System is designed exclusively for use with the Lifestyle 28 and Lifestyle 35 DVD Home Theater Systems. It customizes the Lifestyle system to the size and shape of the room and the position of the listeners/viewers in the room. It contains a special headset that contains microphones instead of speakers and two audio calibration discs. Once the Lifestyle system has been properly connected, it will take about 20 minutes to complete the process. The calibration process consists of generating and analyzing sounds through the Lifestyle system, then allowing the software to self-adjust the system's parameters to give you optimum performance for your room and approximate seating positions. Note: Using the ADAPTiQ software with any system other than Lifestyle 28 or Lifestyle 35 can possibly damage the unit.

Headset: The special headset supplied with the ADAPTiQ system has no speakers, but special microphones designed to be worn above the ears. It enables you to take acoustic measurements in your room during the custom equalization process. The headset has an adjustable headband (7.5"-9.5") and a 30-foot cord terminating in a pair of stereo male RCA plugs. These plug into the left and right AUX input on the rear panel of the Lifestyle system.

Setup Discs: The ADAPTiQ system contains two setup discs. Disc 1, a DVD, verifies that your system's speakers are connected correctly and ensures complete performance from your Lifestyle system. Disc 2, a CD, leads you through an important custom equalization process, which tailors the sound of your Lifestyle system for the acoustics of your listening area.

Future Applications: Moving your Lifestyle 28 or Lifestyle 35 system to another room, or significantly changing the arrangement of the existing room (relocate seating, furniture, speakers or the Acoustimass module) will change the acoustic environment of the listening area. When that occurs, you can repeat the process to customize the system for the new environment.

Remote Control

Multibrand RF Remote: The remote is pre-programmed to control this system and certain functions on other brands of TVs, VCRs, and cable/satellite receivers. In addition, the remote emits a powerful RF (radio frequency) signal, allowing you to operate your system from another room.

Control Integration: The Media Center and universal radio frequency (RF) remote combine to provide complete system control. A radio frequency receiver is built into the Media Center for exclusive communication with the Bose remote. The infrared (IR) control system includes an infrared receiver and an infrared transmitter, allowing the Media Center to retransmit operating commands from the radio frequency Bose remote to the infrared-based video components, such as a TV or cable box.
