Top Quality

This is my second lifestyle system. When set up and installed correctly the sound stage is amazing.

My only gripe is the inability to play music in stereo rather than 5 channel surround.

It is very poor performance, especially the bass

I bought it last Xmas. It took time to process for repairing. It did not improved after 2 weeks repairing. The audio performance is same. To be honest, don't buy it, please.

Purchased in at Bose Shop for $5,820.

Terrible speaker!

published

Bought this expensive Bose lifestyle 650 last year. And it have never been working fine since day one. Sounds of the speakers keep cutting off from all random speakers. Tried to brought it back to the store several times to fixed the problem but the problem have never been fixed. No one know where the problem is. Same problems still here, sounds still cutting off when turn on. Im very disappointed with this expensive investment. Will never use Bose products again. Unbelievable terrible!

Purchased for $7,000.

Bose 650 Lifestyle

published

I have the unit now for 7 months the bass unit has stopped. 4 weeks to repair. I previously had major problem getting Bluetooth to work.The support for the unit is poor, everything is basically done via an internet group as Bose has decided that support costs too much.
You will have issues with the unit and I would not suggest you purchase it. For a product that sells for $7000 Australian there should be a reasonable level of support for both software and hardware. Bose does not supply it. Save your money and buy Sonos or something else that gives you better value for money. I would not recommend the unit.

Purchased in at Apollo Hi Fi Physical store for $7,000.

Difficult interface. Not good compared to other systems that are available. The

Complicated interface. Perhaps I don’t know how to operate it. The rear speakers don’t seem to work but maybe I don’t know how to adjust the volume..
A contractor installed it eighteen months ago. They were very competent but any recalls cost over $100.
It has to integrate with Foxtel but it may not be working because of the complicated controls.

If you have the money, this is QUALITY

published

Purchased this about 4 months ago,thought the price was over the top however it boasts quality and precision with quality. This system meets all expectations, I did also go and purchased an additional BASS module not because the unit needs it, I just wanted to windows to rock and they do now.
