  • Bose Lifestyle 50 Home Theater System is a Dream System!

    Feb 15, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks good!
    Cons: Costs too Much and doesn’t have enough expansion possibilities!

    Summary: Small with the power of some of the Big Systems! This is a Home Theater System that can be placed almost anywhere. Yes everything with the system is small, the biggest part is the subwoofer and you can just hide it somewhere like behind your couch. ... read more

    Pros: Quality, aesthetics, sound, remote, cube size, 6-disc changer, instructions, user-friendliness, DRC, 1ch5
    Cons: Expense, perhaps...this is premium product for a premium price: it's the American way.

    Summary: Please don't be confused w/ irate reviews from people who claim to be audiophiles. Take it from a person who's spent several years in the music industry both recording & performing, as well as spent years & years buying, comparing, etc. re: audio ... read more

  • Why you should not buy a Bose lifestyle 50

    May 28, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Svelte design, looks cool. Multi-room sound control (with extra purchases)
    Cons: Piece of trash never functioned properly since it was purchased new.

    Summary: I purchased my Lifestyle 50 in late october '01 from a reputable chain electronics store. From the beginning, there were nothing but problems. I needed to change the CD/Tuner THREE times for defects. The powered subwoofer needed to be changed TWICE. ... read more

  • Not enough for $3500.00

    Nov 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: So called "All in one" system with great remote. Outstanding for music.
    Cons: If you are only playing CDs, great. But forget about movies.

    Summary: At first I was pleased: The Lifestyle® 50 Home Theater System looked like the best choice with a 6 disc changer and 4 source selection for multiple rooms. I like the remote and would think you would have a couple of those around the house wall ... read more

  • I think this system must be a practical joke.

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Size, Remote Control
    Cons: Everything else

    Summary: Overall, the sound produced my this sound system has nothing to offer. I couldn't say enough bad things about the lackluster, half-absent sound produced by the Lifestyle 50, so I won't start. Considering the cost, I think Bose is selling this system for ... read more

    Pros: Great sound for small system, CDs, Very cool remote, has "wifeability factor"
    Cons: Price, radio listening, non-learning remote.

    Summary: Audiophiles beware? Let's get something straight. I do recommend this system for most people. However, if you don't mind the tackiness of large speakers and you have the space, get larger speakers. It is is simple physics that state you will ... read more
