Alongside the fanfare for its Bose VideoWave soundsystem-in-a-telly Bose has also launched the Bose Lifestyle 235, a 2.1 home entertainment system made up of an head unit, subwoofer, iPod dock and dinky speaker arrays, and while it’s not quite as exciting as the Bose VideoWave, it gives out great sound for such a small bundle, if you can afford to shell out.
The Bose Lifestyle 235 speaker arrays (called the Gemstone ES) are petite, and have three drivers each, two pointing forward and one pointing to the side, which means sound is pushed out and directed around the room.
The Bose Lifestyle 235 also has Unify, the Bose software for setting up and syncing, which means source devices such as Blu-ray or set top boxes can be connected to the Bose Lifestyle 235 remote to control everything from one place. It’s also got AdaptiQ, which analyses the room’s acoustics and calibrates the sound accordingly to get the best out of your system without too much faffing.
It’s a reasonably neat package, with the only caveat being, as with the Bose VideoWave, the price tag, which sits at a rathey hefty £3,000.
