to complement your components with almost no disruption of
your living space.
The Acoustimass module delivers exceptionally deep, rich bass
®
that’s free from audible distortion. And, with our bass extraction
and summation technology, together with Bose proprietary signal
®
processing, it delivers all the bass from this one source. (How? See
page 135.) There are no bass performance ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ spots
as experienced with systems using more than one bass source.
Instead, you can hear – and feel – the filmmaker’s special audio
effects to the full, with no ‘holes’ in the sound. (Learn more on
page 133). As your ears cannot locate the actual source of
distortion-free bass, you can hide the module almost anywhere
out of sight. All the sound is perceived as emanating from the
Virtually Invisible cube speaker arrays that complete the Acoustimass
®
®
system. And, with our optional SL2 wireless surround link, you can
even avoid running wires to the two rear speakers (see page 91).

If music is your true passion, ask for ‘The Original’
®

Music. It has the power to make you smile. Its magic can completely change your mood - especially
at a live performance, where there is nothing between you and the living musical source. Yet enjoying
this simple pleasure at home often requires large speakers.
What if they were no longer needed? What if advanced technology could fill your room with sound
without filling it with speakers? With the Bose Acoustimass 5 stereo speaker system, you can upgrade
®
®
your stereo system and enjoy the lifelike sound and space-saving benefits of this Virtually Invisible
®
speaker system. (More details? Turn to page 94.)
Since its introduction, the Acoustimass 5 stereo speaker system has set the standard for concert-like
®
performance and has become one of the best-selling speaker systems worldwide.
It features a Bose Acoustimass module, for rich, full bass from a small hide-away enclosure, and
®
®
Bose Direct/Reflecting speakers - designed to fill a room with just the right proportion of reflected
®
®
and direct sound, allowing you to enjoy lifelike stereo without confining you to one spot in the room.
Our passion for music has lead to solutions that fill a room with sound and sound alone.

– Stereoplay
At a live performance, much of the sound you hear is reflected
off the walls, ceiling and floor. Only a small percentage - about
11% - reaches you directly. It’s this combination of reflected
and direct sound that makes live music sound live.
With conventional speakers, virtually all of the sound is
radiated directly into the room. Much of the spaciousness
of the live performance is lost.
Bose Direct/Reflecting speakers recreate the ratio of reflected
®
®
and direct sound similar to what you hear at a live concert.
As a result, you experience the power, impact and emotion of
a live performance in your home.
The 901 speaker system remains the Bose Direct/Reflecting
®
®
®
speakers flagship, for good reason. While it has undergone
over one-thousand improvements during the past three
decades, its fundamental design and shape have stayed the
same – true to the original configuration upon which the U.S.
patented technology of Bose 901 Direct/Reflecting speakers
®
®
®
are based. Eight full-range Helical Voice Coil drivers fire out
from the back of the speaker while one fires out from the front.
This arrangement approximates the same ratio of reflected
and direct sound that reaches your ears in a concert hall.

Now that your favourite music is available through phones, iPods, laptops and any number of mobile devices, a pair of quality headphones are
needed to get the best performance possible when you’re on the go. Bose in-ear headphones and headsets offer you the chance to experience

Every pair of Bose in-ear headphones and headsets feature exclusive StayHear tips for a secure, comfortable fit no matter how active your
®
®
lifestyle. Specially designed silicone ridges allow the headphones to rest gently and securely in the bowl of your ears for hours of uninterrupted
listening pleasure.
Bose in-ear headsets like the MIE2 headset allow mobile phone users to switch between music and calls in an instant by pushing the button
®
found on the inline remote, which also houses the microphone. For Apple users* the MIE2i headset offers an inline microphone and remote for

people’s lives.
radiator technology combined with a seven-speaker array and advanced Bose digital signal processing helps
reproduce mid and high frequency sound that seems to come from areas of the room where no speakers exist.
This unique technology uses a Bose transducer connected to a slotted and sealed tube. The tube has thin slots

covered by a very special, fine mesh that creates a large number of precise microscopic openings. As sound
travels from this transducer through the tube, it exits through these microscopic holes resulting in a discrete

It helps you enjoy spacious, immersive sound with your movies, music, games and other home entertainment
– without installing and wiring a roomful of speakers.

With Bose link you can choose between two separate audio streams emanating from your Lifestyle system. For example, if you listen
to uMusic + in the living room (A) the first stream in every room is taken (illustrated by the red line). Someone else in, for example,
the kitchen (B) can listen to uMusic + or choose another source via the second audio stream available. If that person chooses to listen
to a CD both audio streams are used (illustrated by the red and blue line). A third person in, for example, the study (D) can then
choose between the two audio streams - in this instance uMusic + or CD. In every room all persons have independent volume,
mute and on/off control. uMusic + is an integral part of the Lifestyle 48 and 38 DVD home entertainment systems.

reddot design award winner
With over 4,000 entries from 40 countries, the red dot design award ranks among the largest design competitions worldwide.
The competition is divided into three sections - product design, communication design and concept design - which are staged and
adjudicated separately. The coveted trophy is the red dot, the international seal of quality for outstanding design.
Since 1955, expert juries have made awards annually. But the red dot is more than just the seal of quality
from a competition: it stands for acceptance among the very best in design and business.
