Details mean everything. So we compromised on nothing.
The first thing you notice is the beautiful design. Then you turn it on, and powerful audio pours from our redesigned Jewel Cube speakers. If you want great performanceâ€”and valueâ€”in a Bose surround sound system, youâ€™ll find that the Lifestyle 600 home entertainment system delivers on those expectations. And with SoundTouch included, it goes well beyond traditional home cinema. For movies, TV, sports and music, itâ€™s a great choice to keep everyone fully entertained.
Spotlight on speakers
Our Jewel Cube speakers have long been the standard for prodigious sound from a small design. Precisely angled drivers within each enclosure reproduce a blend of direct and reflected sound for greater spaciousness and no â€śsweet spotsâ€ť. Sit anywhere you likeâ€”youâ€™ll experience an immersive audio experience that adds depth and drama to whatever you watch. And when itâ€™s time to relax with a favourite playlist, youâ€™ll appreciate the clarity and fullness of your music.
The centre channel provides clear dialogue for movies and TV shows, plus pristine vocals from your favourite music. Its horizontal design fits in well with your TV, with a small footprint that makes it easy to place.
Thunderous bass. Wireless connectivity.
The Lifestyle 600 system is more than its Jewel Cube speakers. You also get resounding bass performance for movies and music from a wireless Acoustimass module. With its premium glass top finish, it delivers on sound and style. A powerful driver and QuietPort technology combine for best in class performance for its size.
Statements in elegance, continuedâ€¦
The polished glass curvature of the console has a singular style you canâ€™t ignore. But itâ€™s more than just good looks. The console houses all of your technological needs: BluetoothÂ® and Wi-FiÂ® connectivity for wireless music streaming, 4K video compatibility, 6 HDMIâ„˘ inputs and more. And itâ€™s all controlled with a universal remote.
