If you leave your Bose Lifestyle 48 system on all day. The music just plays seamlessly from the hard drive. We never missed our 400 CD player. Minimum space required, clean simple design. Excellent sound quality. (read more)

Not worth the money I paid I feel from my experience...
Expensive for me as it was made in China and bit plasticy
Not enough bass in my opinion... Therefore I would not recommend the Bose Lifestyle 48 as a Home Theatre System, unless you have lots of cash to blow! (read more)

Primitive for the money. Cannot be used to connect to a media server PC (like, eg a PS3 or an Apple TV). The storage of CDs within it may have been brilliant when conceived years back, but so "yesterday" currently when you can easily use a Cat 5 or WiFi connection to your PC in another room. The new Bose gadget for HDMI connections, incredibly(!!!) requires a separate connection for the sound, by an optical link. Still has no facility for playing Blu Ray discs. Within one week I needed my... (read more)

After 4 months use a "chirping" noise was heard from my Bose Lifestyle 48 DVD home cinema playback unit when playing Movie DVD's. This increased over time, until it was too obvious and I called Bose service. I was given a service number and shipping address . Although in the same city, I was told not to drop the unit off. The service turn around time I was told was three weeks! You would think that for the money, a loader system would be made available until my unit was repaired. I had... (read more)

Excellent is the best word to describe the Bose Lifestyle 48 system. It has the smallest cubes out of any of the systems and best bass IMHO.
The design of the media center is the same as the other lifestyle systems and this system can hold 360 hours of your favourite music. Imagine buy a CD burn it to the media player and then never scratch it as it's in the system and ready to play anytime.
Absoultely wonderfull system the only bad things is the price, but if you shop around there are... (read more)
