    I would assume that this system does not require an amp/receiver to power it? So, just hook it up to your big screen, and you are ready to go?   (5 Answers)

      Answer

      You are correct. This is a standalone home theater system that does not require an external amp/receiver to enjoy with your TV setup.

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

      The 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.

      This system includes its own receiver, you will not need a Yamaha receiver to run it. If you're set on the Yamaha receiver, you should check out the Bose Acoustimass 10 system.

          How are the speakers powered?   (4 Answers)

          By Willie January 21, 2017.

            There 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.

            No, you have to order those. Please note that the wall mount brackets come packaged as a pair; I thought they were individual and ordered two, so I ended up with 4 brackets. I simply returned one package to Best Buy for a refund.
