Bose is renowned for their headphones, speaker systems and TVs. Today, the company announced the launch of their first soundbar systems in Singapore – the Lifestyle 135 home entertainment system and the CineMate 1 SR digital home theater speaker system.
Atlas Sound & Vision, distributor of Bose, has introduced the first soundbar systems from Bose – the Lifestyle 135 home entertainment system and the CineMate 1 SR digital home theater speaker system. Incorporating proprietary Bose technologies, both system claim to offer a new level of audio performance and placement flexibility for soundbar solutions, delivering home theater sound from one elegant speaker array, and a new wireless Acoustimass module. The Lifestyle 135 system includes a media console for up to six high definition sources (four HDMI inputs), an AM/FM tuner, and a dock for the Apple iPod or iPhone. Featuring the proprietary Bose Unify intelligent integration system, the media console acts as a central hub and makes connecting devices to the console convenient. The CineMate 1 SR system attaches directly to the TV with just a cable. Both soundbar set-ups feature a programmable remote that controls the system and nearly any connected source, from a Blu-ray Disc player to a cable box.
PhaseGuide Technology: Immersive Sound From One Visible Speaker
The Lifestyle 135 system and CineMate 1 SR system represent the first Bose speakers to feature breakthrough PhaseGuide sound radiator technology, originally used in the company’s revolutionary VideoWave entertainment system – the industry’s first high-definition television that integrates a complete home theater sound system behind a 46” 1080p LCD display. Combined with proprietary TrueSpace digital processing circuitry, PhaseGuide technology transforms the listening experience: discrete sound can be heard in places where there are no speakers. The new Acoustimass module delivers low notes with cinematic impact. Smaller than previous Bose Acoustimass modules, its wireless link allows it to be hidden,completely out of sight.
Soundbar Setup: Horizontal, Vertical, Anywhere in the Room
Unlike conventional soundbars, the Lifestyle135 and CineMate 1 SR systems have true placement flexibility – they can be positioned near the TV, and in two orientations. Bose FlexMount automatic placement compensation senses whether the speaker has been placed horizontally on a table, or mounted vertically on a wall. It then automatically adjusts the sound, offering users two choices for soundbar setup with the same assurance of spacious, natural sound. The media console included with the Lifestyle135 system serves as the hub for home entertainment sources. The exclusive Bose Unify intelligent integration system makes connecting devices to the console effectively mistake-proof. With Bose ADAPTiQ audio calibration technology, the system can deliver optimal sound in any room. It first recognises where the system is located, then compensates for how the acoustics of the space affect its audio quality – customising the sound for the room’s unique size, shape, even furnishings.
