In years gone by, a good sound system was often restricted to the formal living room. The introduction of digital sound has changed all that it's now possible to have high-fidelity audio throughout the house. And one of the best aspects of the sound revolution is the size of the components. Quality audio can be as unobtrusive as you wish.

Bose®, a company renowned for its high-performance, good-things-come-in-small-packages approach to design, has released a range of products that take the concept of smart technology one step further.

The Bose Lifestyle® 48 DVD home entertainment system is a good example. The system incorporates a sleek media centre with a built-in progressive scan DVD/CD player and AM/FM tuner, tiny Jewel Cube® speakers, and an Acoustimass® module for resounding low notes.

As with all Bose lifestyle products, the Lifestyle® 48 can be linked to speakers in any room with the Bose®link audio networking system. All rooms can be controlled by the simple-to-operate Personal® Music Centre Series 11 remote.

The system incorporates the new uMusic¢ intelligent playback system, which digitally stores your entire music collection. The Lifestyle 48 entertainment system also features the Bose AdaptIQ® audio calibration system for optimum sound. This technology analyses and adjusts the sound to suit the size and shape of the room, where the speakers are placed, and where you sit.

Bose products in the home shown here include the Bose 321¢ GSX home theatre system. A sleek media centre houses the sources for a complete home entertainment experience DVD/CD player, AM/FM tuner and inputs for three additional sources. The 321 GSX also features the uMusic system, with storage for up to 200 CDs. It utilises Bose's small but powerful Gemstone¢ speaker arrays, and a hideaway Acoustimass module to deliver full surround sound. As there are no rear speakers, there is also no need for unsightly wires.
