Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Excellent for family rooms and music background
Bought for our family room and for ambiance. Another quality product from Bose with big sound. Very good universal remote and easy set-up!
A:Answerideal placement of the speaker is in front of your TV, at or near ear-level, and facing into the room. Because every installation may be somewhat different, the AdaptIQ feature built into the system will calibrate your speaker placement to ensure you get the possible performance. We hope that helps!
(This answer is also applies to the Bose CineMate 1 SR Digital Home Theater Speaker System.)
A:AnswerA DirecTV receiver – or any set-top box – will connect to all of our home theater systems, including the 321GSIII. Some receivers might have options to adjust audio and video quality or to allow the 321 remote to control them, but our systems and a receiver will easily connect using standard audio and video cables.
Thanks for the question!
(This answer is true for the Bose Lifestyle and 321 systems as well.)
A:AnswerThis system uses Bose PhaseGuide radiators and TrueSpace signal processing to create a simulated surround sound experience from a single Sound Bar speaker. It is not compatible with the speaker package from any other Bose system.
A:AnswerThe Lifestyle 135 home entertainment system and the Cinemate 1 SR digital home theater speaker system have the same speaker package and sound quality capability. The Lifestyle 135 has a control console that provides many additional benefits, such as:
- HDMI in/out jacks
- Multiple inputs (as opposed to only one on the Cinemate 1SR)
- Easy, seamless remote control integration with the television and other attached devices
- A built-in AM/FM tuner
- A dock for iPod/iPhone
- Ability to add sound throughout a home with Bose link technology
In summary, either system will produce the same sound reproduction, but the Lifestyle 135 is better equipped to integrate the Bose system with your TV and other components, while the Cinemate 1SR is a simpler and more basic, stand-alone speaker system
We hope this helps!
