Lifestyle 600 system

Overview

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 performance—and value—in a Bose surround sound system, you’ll find that 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—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 QuietPort technology combine for best in class performance for its size. 

 

Statements in elegance, continued…

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 HDMI™ inputs and more. And it’s all controlled with a universal remote.

Same system, different speakers.

Less effort, more music

With the Lifestyle 600 system, we put a lot of thought into taking the thinking out. Of course, there’s the premium home cinema performance that you’ll love for movies, TV and sports. But when it comes to enjoying your music, you can listen whichever way you want, without worrying about which technology is best. This system features SoundTouch, which lets you play music through your Wi-Fi network for instant in home listening. Or listen directly from a phone or tablet using a Bluetooth connection.

Fast, simple control of all your music

Experience your favourite music from your SoundTouch speaker with the SoundTouch app. SoundTouch lets you take total control of your listening experience, right from your smartphone or tablet. Browse popular music services like Spotify® and Deezer, Internet radio stations through TuneIn or your stored music library. Easily personalise presets for one-touch access to the music you love and control one or many SoundTouch speakers around your home.

Engineered to keep it simple

Unify technology walks you through setup with guided messages on the screen, and ADAPTiQ audio calibration fine tunes the sound specifically to your room and the things in it. So when you hear it, you hear it at its absolute best. The rear speakers and bass module even connect wirelessly for easier placement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better late than never! This long review comes almost 2 years later but I figured that if I am going to review a high end BOSE home entertainment system, let's give it a good chance to prove itself. Worth the read in my opinion especially if you are going to drop this kind of coin on a home theatre system. I am a very old school person where it's all about big, heavy high-quality amps to drive big speakers using nothing but the best cabling available and "running in" new speakers similar to what you would do with a new car. That being said, I've always had a soft spot for BOSE products. We built our new home in 2017 so I figured "let's give BOSE a good crack!". Was it a smart move? Yes. What was the first thing that impressed you? The build quality, thought and innovation. What did you think of the sound straight out of the box? My honest answer - bass lacked a tiny bit initially BUT it was still good and like any speaker, I knew that it would sound eleventy billion times better when you use them for a period of time. I also put the lack of bass due to the initial placement of the Acoustimass module not being right in the corner. 14 months later - my thoughts? Mate... this system is epic. Forget everything you thought you knew about decent sound (i.e. setting stereo for music, normal TV, 5 channel mode for movies and so on, equalizers, etc.). This thing has the smarts to set the audio output mode as needed depending on the source and does a cracker of a job blending channels to make it seem like one massive source of sound. I also discovered "Direct" audio mode and found the sweet spot with the tone & level settings volumes and everything just sounds awesome. It sounds THAT good that you can really tell when something has been produced poorly. The best part? I still have not run the ADAPTiQ audio tuning that comes with it. I literally have bass and treble set to 0 (flat) and audio mode in Direct for all sources - perfection. Bass is deep as it should be, mids are nice without being overpowering and the treble is crisp without pearcing your ear drums. I still remember the BOSE sales rep's face when I told him that I have not run it yet. He was shocked but I convinced him that it does not need it! Give the speakers a chance to run in and you will hear it! The UNIFY tech works flawlessly with my Sony X85E Android TV, Sony PlayStation 4. I only have 2 remotes floating around and that is the BOSE and Foxtel to control everything. System OFF means System OFF. Full smart TV control using the UNIFY remote. The best party trick is SoundTouch - I recently purchased a SoundTouch 20 Series III and SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter for my trusty old Sound Dock Portable speaker. We recently had a Christmas Party with mates and I had Spotify cranking all night using SoundTouch throughout the entire house. The ability to control each system (referred to as a "speaker") individually and play either 3 different sources or switch on PLAY ALL mode - the party was on! Would give you 10 out of 5 stars if I could. It works perfectly and ticks all the boxes for us.

How does the Unify intelligent integration system work?

Once a video connection has been made between the Lifestyle control console and your TV, the Unify system walks you through initial system setup, step by step.

The Unify system is available at any time to help you connect and/or disconnect your entertainment sources and programme your remote control.
