Details mean everything. So we compromised on nothing.
The first thing you notice is the beautiful design. Then you turn it on, and powerful audio pours from our redesigned Jewel Cube speakers. If you want great performanceÔÇöand valueÔÇöin a Bose surround sound system, you'll find the Lifestyle 600 home entertainment system delivers on those expectations. And with SoundTouch┬« included, it goes well beyond traditional home cinema. For movies, TV, sports and music, it's a great choice to keep everyone fully entertained.
Spotlight on speakers
Our Jewel Cube speakers have long been the standard for prodigious sound from a small design. Precisely angled drivers within each enclosure reproduce a blend of direct and reflected sound for greater spaciousness and no "sweet spots". Sit anywhere you like ÔÇö you'll experience an immersive audio experience that adds depth and drama to whatever you watch. And when it's time to relax with a favourite playlist, you'll appreciate the clarity and fullness of your music.
The centre channel provides clear dialogue for movies and TV shows, plus pristine vocals from your favourite music. Its horizontal design fits in well with your TV, with a small footprint that makes it easy to place.
Thunderous bass. Wireless connectivity.
The Lifestyle 600 system is more than its Jewel Cube speakers. You also get resounding bass performance for movies and music from a wireless Acoustimass module. With its premium glass-top finish, it delivers on sound and style. A powerful driver and QuietPortÔäó technology combine for best-in-class performance for its size.
Statements in elegance, continuedÔÇŽ
The polished glass curvature of the console has a singular style you can't ignore. But it's more than just good looks. The console houses all of your technological needs: Bluetooth┬« and Wi-Fi┬« connectivity for wireless music streaming, 4K video compatibility, 6 HDMIÔäó inputs and more. And it's all controlled with a universal remote.
