    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 Full Review

    Written on: 11/11/2008 by AdamSurrey (1 review written)

    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 Full Review

    Written on: 07/10/2008 by samirkharusi (1 review written)

    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 Full Review

    I disagree with this review simply because what he wanted was not matched with the system that he bought but the quality and features is perfectly good on its own if it was the system match that you are looking for. Samirkharusi should have studied and thought of his existing system before he picked Bose Lifestyle 48.

    You can actually connect a Media PC, just connect the video to your TV and the sound to one of Bose's many AUX connectors on the back of the unit.

    <br/>The new bass module is also slightly louder and deeper as it has 3 bass drivers instead of two.

    Written on: 06/12/2005 by 4plait (1 review written)

    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 Full Review

    Written on: 05/04/2005 by holt7777 (1 review written)

    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 Full Review
