for such a small unit it kicks the quality I expected from Bose

The sound from this system is just okay. For this price, it should be spectacular. The most aggravating thing is the SoundTouch feature. It should be easy enough for it to play music from my Amazon service but it is not. First, the television must be on for it to play the music. Even if you get the music started and turn off the television, the system will turn it back on. Why should the television have to be on to listen to music all day? Also, when the television is on, the system keeps switching the television speakers on. The television speakers do not synch with the Bose speakers so there is a horrible echo unless you manually mute the television speakers. Next, after the recent software update, it repeatedly disconnects SoundTouch from the music service. You may get an hour of music or you may get five minutes before being disconnected. The SoundTouch must be connected using your computer so you have to have you computer, television, Bose system and internet router all on to play music. Even with everything turned on, the system frequently disconnects and EVERYTHING has to be rebooted to get it to work again. This system just does not deliver the quality and efficiency you would expect for a system at this price. You can buy a cheap $300 system with slightly less sound quality but none of the aggravation.
Pros: Sound quality is decent when it works
Cons: Does not function properly. Must be frequently rebooted. Television must be on when listening to music. Switches to television speakers unexpectedly. Does not stay connected to music service. Way overpriced.

I have been waiting a while to go ahead and get the Bose Lifestyle 600 system and i can say it was worth the wait! The small speakers do not disappoint, that is for sure. The whole system is fantastic and worth the wait!

Love the Bose Lifestyle 600! I have difficulty hearing words on all TV's, this system is incredibly clear and precise and I have little if any difficulty hearing words and speech. I highly recommend Bose 600!
Pros: Size and ease of setup

We purchased this Bose Lifestyle 600 System to replace the Bose Acoustimass 2 speaker/ sub system. We are very pleased with the system as if fills the high ceiling living room with sound. We can now control everything with one remote which is wonderful. No more looking around for the right remote to control a device. The installation was somewhat complicated as the included directions were limited. We called Bose and spoke with one of their representatives with helping us download new updated software which helped to identify our tv, blue ray, Apple TV. They were extremely helpful and know,edgeable in helping us get the system installed, adjusted, and up and,working. Instructions say allow one hour-we spent 4 hours getting everything just right.. would recommend this product, sound is amazing...
