Bose (http://www.bose.com) has introduced new Lifestyle V-Class and T-Class home theater systems, combining proprietary 5.1 surround sound with the new Bose Unify intelligent integration system that’s designed to overcome much of the growing complexity of setting up and using home theater systems. And they’re iPod compatible.
The Lifestyle V-Class systems include Jewel Cube or Direct/Reflecting= speaker arrays, a built-in AM/FM tuner, a dock for iPod, and a universal remote control with a two-line display to show what radio station or song is playing; there’s no need to turn on the TV. The systems include Direct/Reflecting or Virtually Invisible speaker arrays, and a universal remote control. All systems include a control console for connection to sources and use automatic video upscaling for the highest resolution a TV can accept, up to 1080p via HDMI.
The Lifestyle V35 and V25 systems are available from Bose for US$3,299 and $2,499, respectively. The new Lifestyle T20 system is available from Bose for $1,999.
