  • Q: How are the speakers powered?  (4 Answers)

    By Willie 

    • Best answerThere is a receiver/ power supply box that connects to each speaker and plugs into an electrical outlet. It receives the signals wirelessly from the 650. You will need to locate the speakers within reasonable distance of an electrical outlet and figure out how to run the wires from the boxes to the speakers. But no long runs of wire from the main unit as there used to be. The subwoofer is also wireless and plugs into an electrical outlet. The front and center speakers are hard wired to the 650 unit.

  • Q: Can the stored music from the old lifesytel 28 system be transferred to the new lifestyle 650 system?  (2 Answers)

    By mainmanmike 

    • Best answerThe Lifestyle 650 does not store any music. It streams music from other sources, via bluetooth or wi-fi. It does not have an AM-FM tuner, either, but instead pulls internet radio stations. This actually works well for me, as my local NPR stations are all available, as are other favorite stations from around the country such as WFMT in Chicago. It also streams Pandora, Sirius XM, etc. sources, and you can set 6 stations from any of these sources on presets. You tune the sources on your smartphone or tablet via an app, but once you've tuned in a station, your smartphone or tablet can leave the area and the Lifestyle continues to play that source. And you can use the presets to tune sources with no smart device present. The change reflects the trend to streaming from the "cloud" rather than storing things on local hard drives.

    By Anonymous 

    • AHi, that's a great question! The Lifestyle 650 doesn't stream video. SoundTouch systems do offer the ability to stream music, but video would need to be streamed from another device. Regards, Tony - Bose Support
