Bose Lifestyle V35, V25 and T20 Home Theater Systems


Bose has introduced new Lifestyle V-Class and T-Class™ home theater systems, combining proprietary 5.1 surround sound with the new Bose Unify intelligent integration system — a breakthrough technology that overcomes much of the growing complexity of setting up and using home theater systems. Now, connecting speakers and sources, programming remotes, and accessing content is easier and faster than ever before.

“Today, consumers have players for music, movies and video games, but getting them to work with their TV has become so difficult, they may avoid adding a home theater system altogether,” said Doug Lankford, director of home theater product marketing for Bose Corporation. “Our new Lifestyle systems simplify the set up of multiple components, and transform everyday use: onscreen displays work seamlessly with just one remote, and selecting and switching between sources is done at the touch of a button. Unify technology finally breaks down the barrier between the equipment and the experience.”

The Bose Unify™ Intelligent Integration System
Unify technology integrates sophisticated software and hardware to deliver dramatic results.

Connecting sources is effectively mistake-proof. With Unify technology, easy-to-follow steps are shown on the TV screen. They’re written in plain language, even showing pictures of the right connector. The Lifestyle system console recommends the right cable to use, has smart inputs that sense when a connection is made, and confirms when the connection is successful.

The new Lifestyle V-Class and T-Class™ systems were designed to evolve with an owner’s needs, accommodating up to six HD sources. The Lifestyle remote can operate virtually any entertainment device, including Blu-ray™ players, cable boxes, Digital Media Adapters, and new devices as they become available. Unlike conventional programming methods, there is no trial and error, no codes to enter. Simply aim a source remote at the Lifestyle system’s console and follow basic onscreen instructions. Press a few buttons on the source remote, and Unify technology automatically programs the Lifestyle remote to operate the source.

Devices are listed onscreen as “Blu-ray player” or “Cable Box,” rather than cryptic acronyms like “HDMI 1” or “COMPONENT 1.” Choose one, and the source is ready to play. The Lifestyle remote’s interface remains remarkably uncomplicated. It controls the most frequently used commands — like “source” or “volume,” while rarely used commands are found onscreen.

Even opening a new Lifestyle system box is reassuring. Inside are five clearly labeled boxes. Finish setting up the contents of one, and go to the next, until the speakers and Acoustimass module are connected to the Lifestyle system’s console, and the console is connected to the TV.

“Many of today’s home entertainment systems are feature-rich, but if an owner can’t access those features, they don’t offer any real value,” said Lankford. “The new Lifestyle systems deliver what’s been missing in the market — a truly simplified, high-quality home theater system.”

Bose Lifestyle V25 Home Theater System

Proprietary Bose 5.1 Surround Sound
The new Lifestyle V35, V25 and T20 systems feature exclusive Bose audio technologies to deliver vivid, theater-like surround sound from only five small speaker arrays and a hideaway Acoustimass module. Bose ADAPTiQ audio calibration technology analyzes and adjusts the system’s sound to the size, shape and furnishings of any room, providing greater freedom for speaker placement.

The Lifestyle V-Class systems include Jewel Cube or Direct/Reflecting speaker arrays, a built-in AM/FM tuner, a dock for iPod, and a universal remote control with a two-line display to show what radio station or song is playing; there’s no need to turn on the TV.

The Lifestyle T-Class™ systems include Direct/Reflecting or Virtually Invisible speaker arrays, and a universal remote control.

The Lifestyle V35 and V25 systems are available from Bose for $3,299 and $2,499, respectively. The new Lifestyle T20 system is available from Bose for $1,999.
