Welcome
Thank you for purchasing a Bose® LIFESTYLE® DVD home entertainment system. Through
proprietary Bose technologies and innovative LIFESTYLE® system design, this elegant and
easy-to-use system delivers superior performance for both music and video programming.
Introducing the uMusicTM intelligent playback system
One innovative feature of your new home entertainment system – a revolutionary advancement unique to this Bose product – is the uMusicTM intelligent playback system.
You may have seen a demonstration and know how this new approach to storing and
enjoying your own CDs adds listening pleasure with so little effort.
For a detailed explanation
If you have never seen or heard how this new feature works, we suggest you take a few
minutes now to review “Presenting a New Way to Play” on page 48. With that insight, you
can better explore and exploit all this system has to offer. Or, you may refer to the small,
color-coded uMusicTM System Guide provided in the carton.
Clarifying some basics
You may consider yourself a dedicated audiophile or someone who simply loves music.
Regardless of your level of expertise, the explanations that follow may prove helpful in understanding some of the terms and technologies associated with the advanced audio and video
options available today.
Types of discs you can use with this system
Your system is engineered to play the disc types listed below, some of which are identified by
corresponding logos:
• Audio CDs
– including those with DTS
• CD-R, CD-RW, or CD-ROM
• MP3 CDs created with:
– All tracks burned in a
single, closed session
• SACD content if it is CDcompatible
• Video CDs (VCDs)
• DVD-R, DVD-RW
• Video DVDs
– Use of ISO9660 disc format
– including those with DTS
– Each file named with an
“.mp3” extension and no
other periods
– including those with Dolby
Digital
– File tags no higher than ID3
(ID3v2).
• Regarding copy
protection
Music and other
content may be
protected by international and domestic
copyright laws and
may contain specific
restrictions on use
and/or reproduction.
Please respect the
rights of the artists
and other copyright
holders.
Any difficulties experienced in playing compatible CDs or DVDs may be related to the rates at
which data was recorded to the disc or to the optical characteristics of the recording device
used.
Check DVDs for region number compatibility
For a DVD disc to be compatible with a player, their respective region numbers must match.
These numbers are assigned by the geographic region where the player and disc are sold.
You can find the region number for your system on the bottom of the media center.
If you have trouble playing a DVD disc, check to see if the region number marked
on the disc label or packaging matches the region number of your system. A DVD
and media center marked for use in Region 1 should display the symbol at right.

Getting strong remote control range and response
The cord that connects the power supply to the media center contains an antenna for your
RF remote. For good range, it is VERY important that you extend this cord to its full length
and keep it away from other system cables. P!"#$%&'()*'+,-*.'/0++!1',%'()*'2!,,.3'-*!!'4*!,-'
()*'5*6$"'#*%(*.3'+0(/'()*'#,.6'$%'"'7*.($#"!',.$*%("($,%3'-)$#)'$/',+($5058
Note: Also, when using a plasma screen TV, keeping the media center power supply as far from
the TV as is practical improves remote range.
If your system does not respond when you press a button on the remote, it could be time to
change the batteries. For information on the type of batteries to use and how to change them,
refer to “Replacing the remote control batteries” on page 52.
In some buildings, there may be “dead spots” where remote control signals are not effective.
If this happens, move the remote a foot or two and try again. Also make sure the cord that
connects the power supply to the media center (and contains the remote antenna) is
stretched to its full length and is separated from other power cords. If this does not help,
move the media center a few feet to see if a new location provides better response.
If the batteries are not dead and your efforts to avoid dead spots are in vain, you may need an
antenna extender. To contact Bose for more information, or to order the extender, refer to the
address list included with the system.

To enjoy remarkable new LIFESTYLE! system features
You can use many features of your LIFESTYLE® system as soon as it is installed and the
setup is verified by the two discs that are included with it.
But the revolutionary uMusic™ intelligent playback system requires that CD tracks are stored
in the system before you can use it. To get the most impact from this feature, you need at
least 20 discs stored. Before you begin storing, you may want to refer to the small, colorcoded uMusicTM System Guide provided in the carton.
Storing one disc is very simple:
• Place the CD into the disc tray of the media center and close the tray.
• Press the Store button, located on the media center control panel.
Note: To store additional CDs, you may want some guidelines and more details. Refer to
“Getting your music into the system,” below.
To further understand your options for identifying and playing the tracks you store, be sure !
to read “Check in at your Music Library” on page 19 and “How the uMusic™ intelligent
playback system works for you” on page 50.
Enjoying your stored music
The uMusicTM intelligent playback system provides a refreshing new means to enjoy the music
you own on CD. Before you use it, you can read the overview of its capabilities in “Presenting
a New Way to Play” on page 48.
Note: This feature functions only after CDs have been stored in the system, as described below.
Instructions for selecting and playing stored music refer to buttons on the LIFESTYLE®
remote control unless otherwise specified.
Getting your music into the system
Before you can enjoy these benefits, some preparation is required. It involves use of the
media center and a simple three-step procedure for storing your music.
Note: Your system is designed to store the tracks of regular CDs only. It will not store MP3
tracks or the contents of DVDs. If an inappropriate disc type is in the disc tray when the Store
button is pressed, the media center displays an error message to indicate that storage is not
possible.

SYSTEM OPERATION
2. Press the Store button, located on the media center control panel.
• During this process, the media center displays the message CD STORING and shows
what percentage of the task is completed.
• To interrupt or stop the storing activity at any time, simply open the disc tray.
• To resume storing the same disc, close the tray and press the Store button again.
3. When it reaches 100% and displays the text AUDIO CD STORED, remove the disc and
repeat steps 1-3 for each additional CD.
Storing takes about 5 minutes per disc. For more details, see “Planning time to store your
music” on page 49.
The basics of your uMusicTM intelligent playback system
1. Press Stored to select the stored music source. If the system is off, this will turn it on in
the uMusic™ system mode. It begins with the last-used preset.
2. Now you can simply sit back and listen, or make other choices:
• Press any number button, 1 through 9, to choose a different preset.
• Press – or + rating buttons if you have a particularly strong reaction to a selection.
Note: Pressing – registers your displeasure with the current track, so the system moves immediately to a new track. Use this rating when you hear a track that is inappropriate for the selected
preset and you want to lessen your chance of hearing the track again. Pressing + sends a strong
message that the current track is pleasing and music like it is appropriate for the selected preset.
• Press Encore to hear only music similar to the piece playing. !
The system checks the music databases and selects only those tracks in your !
collection with very similar attributes, so you can count on it to mirror that mood.
• Press Whole CD to hear the other tracks, in the order arranged, on the same CD.
• Press CD#, followed by its reference number, to move to a specific CD and hear all the
tracks on it.

Making sure you hear what you like
Enjoying the broad selection of your private music collection in powerful, lifelike multispeaker performance is the primary benefit of your uMusic intelligent playback system.
TM
Yet this system provides the means for you to narrow its selections to better satisfy the !
different facets of your personality.
Set up presets for each listener right away
To get the very most from this sophisticated, multi-faceted feature, you need to set up and
use the stored music presets reserved for this purpose.
A stored music preset is where listening preferences for different people, activities, or moods
get recorded over time. Consider each one as a different “station” that you tune to so the !
system can “listen” and learn about your taste.
Note: If several people in your household have stored music on the system, it is particularly
important that they have their own presets. This helps the system differentiate preferences and
prevents it from replaying music you do not want to hear.
When you first select Stored as your source, the system automatically enters Preset 1, shown
on the media center display as P1 (Figure 4). Or, if you used another preset recently, the !
system may select that preset for you.

2. Check the media center display to see which play mode is selected.
• If it says UMUSIC, you are ready to listen and enjoy.
• If it says ENCORE, CD#, PLAYLIST, or WHOLE CD, press uMusic on the remote to get the
system out of the special play mode.
3. Just listen for a while.
Notice there’s no identifiable order to what plays: not by CDs that were stored first, nor by
common artist or genre. It’s more like a freewheeling stream of tracks you may or may not
have heard recently.
4. While in Stored source, pressing a numbered button – from 2 to 9 – moves into a different preset. The music playing will change when this happens.
Note: You can give each preset a name, up to eight letters long, for the person or reason for
using it. For details on how to do this, refer to “Media center options” on page 38.
Train your preset
If you hear a piece you don’t like or are not in the mood for:
• Move on by pressing
or
.!
The system begins to play the next track, notes that you may not be in the mood for this
one now, and prepares to learn more.
• Press the – rating button if the track playing is just not right for this preset. !
The system logs your strongly negative response and moves to another track immediately.
If a track stands out as a real favorite:
• Press the + rating button.!
The system logs your response as positive and continues playing the track. You are likely to
hear more music from that artist and album sooner than some others.
If you want to train your preset more quickly:
• Press Library, so you can look through music stored on the system and rate it by genre, artist,
track, or entire CD.
Note: For details on using the Music Library, refer to “Check in at your Music Library” on
page 19.
Use the Playlist to line up tracks for play
The system includes a ready-to-use playlist, so you can line up specific tracks in the order
you choose and play them on command.
Note: If you simply want music to set a certain ambiance, you may find it easier to choose a
preset and let the system do the selecting.
The playlist can be useful when you want a very specific type of music, your holiday favorites,
for example. You can also use it when you want certain tracks to play in a specific order.
To add music to the Playlist:
• While listening to a track in Stored source (and not in Playlist), press and hold Playlist on the
remote.
• Locate selections using the Music Library, then press and hold Playlist to add them to a !
Playlist one by one. Or, you can easily add a whole batch of selections by one artist, a
genre, or from one CD.

Check in at your Music Library
Imagine: while using your LIFESTYLE® system, you hear music – on FM, or perhaps the score
of a movie – and suddenly you think of another song you want to hear. You know you own it,
though the name eludes you. But it won’t stop running through your head.
This is a perfect scenario for using the Music Library. If your system is turned on and the
Stored source is selected:
1. Press Library on the remote to see your choices for locating a track.
• The initial library information appears on the media center display (Figure 5).

CONTROLLING EXTERNAL SOURCES
Using your LIFESTYLE! remote with other components
CONTROLLING EXTERNAL SOURCES
You can control most brands of external components – such as TVs, cable/satellite boxes,
and VCR/DVRs – using your LIFESTYLE® remote control. After you make the proper menu
selections for each component you want to control, the LIFESTYLE® remote serves as a !
universal remote for most of your component operations.
Setting the remote to control each component
Your LIFESTYLE® system includes an IR (infrared) emitter that sends out signals from the front
of the music center to each component that your LIFESTYLE® remote is set to control. This
allows you to turn on those sources (which are in the room with the media center) and make
basic selections from them. The additional components may be connected either to the
media center or to the TV.
It may take more than one try
Some manufacturers use a number of similar device codes. After selecting one code, your
remote may turn your TV, cable or satellite box, or VCR on and off successfully. However, !
if you cannot change channels or initiate other features using the remote, you may want to
continue testing device codes until you find one that provides greater control.
After trying a few codes, if your component still does not respond, reposition the component
slightly.
Note: IR signals must reach each component for a reliable test of the IR code settings. A good
way to succeed is by using the supplied IR emitter cable, positioning it in front of each component as you use the LIFESTYLE® remote to turn it on and off. If you have not yet installed the
emitter, see “IR emitter cable as an option” in your Installation Guide.
For TV control
Note: For general guidelines on using the LIFESTYLE® System menu, refer to “Using System
Menus” on page 32.
Use the TV remote to turn on the TV. Be sure to select the video input on the TV for the media
center.
Then, using the LIFESTYLE® remote control:
1.
Press TV to select the TV source.
2.
Press System. The System menu will appear on the TV screen (Figure 10).

Note: If you recorded the TV Video Input information on the form in your Installation Guide, refer
to that form as needed.
• Press System on the LIFESTYLE® remote control, as needed.
What it shows you
When the System menu appears, the first property on the left (Audio) is prominent, and the
preview screen displays those property features. However, as you move across to the right,
different properties become prominent.
At the far right, you reach the DVD Lock property and its preview list of features (Figure 14).

PRESENTING A NEW WAY TO PLAY
What makes this LIFESTYLE! system uniquely yours
The CDs you have amassed over the years are an expression of your taste in music. The ones
you play on a regular basis provide a window into your style and moods. And the tracks you
most enjoy when feeling tired, exuberant, social, or soulful exemplify these moods.
You may have chosen your LIFESTYLE® system because it captures these subtleties with a
breakthrough new feature: the uMusic™ intelligent playback system. Enabled by proprietary
Bose® technology, it transforms your system into a virtual DJ, capable of playing a continuous
stream of the music you most enjoy and adapting to your preferences as they change.
PRESENTING A NEW WAY TO PLAY
Not only does it store your personal CD collection, but the uMusic intelligent playback system
also provides a revolutionary new approach to hearing your music.
It offers immediate access and uninterrupted play, so you can enjoy far more of your favorite
music, even the tracks you’ve forgotten you own. And, as if it is listening along with you, the
system learns to play more and more of what you prefer...for customized listening pleasure.
Underlying this new feature is the capacity to store all of the tracks from hundreds of your
CDs in the system. The actual quantity depends on the number and length of tracks on each
CD. Used as a personal music library, this feature saves you the time spent physically arranging and searching through your collection.
How you can tell the system to “Do as I do”
That’s right, you get to instruct this new music system to play what you want, when you !
want it.
But giving it instructions requires very little effort. Just react to your stored music as it plays
and count on this system to pay attention.
Don’t be concerned about doing it right, either, because anything you do is undo-able. For
instance, pressing Encore tells the system to search the database for music with characteristics
that closely match what’s playing now. This choice gets the system to narrow its focus of
selections, in response to your command. But whenever you press the uMusic button again,
you’ll notice the system returns to selecting from a broader range of your collection.
Even pressing the – (negative) rating button does not banish a track forever. It tells the system
to move on because this particular track is not right for this time of day, this activity, this
selected preset, or the person who’s listening.
Pressing the + (positive) rating button has the opposite effect: the system learns that you !
particularly like the track playing. Not that every track you like requires a + rating. But you can
provide this nudge when the track you hear is really special.
Over time, the system adjusts the type of music it plays when your preset is selected, in
response to your previous reactions. And you don’t need to worry that a response you make
now will be stored permanently. Your early choices and decisions are easily overridden, if you
like. So don’t hesitate to tell the system just what you think now. Feel free to experiment, and
enjoy your musical mood.
Whatever that mood is, letting it be known helps the system come closer and closer to !
playing exactly what you’d choose...if you still had to.
Tips for storing music
• It is not necessary to have the system turned on while storing.
• Begin storing your favorite CDs first, for the best introductory taste of what the uMusic !
system can do.
• It is not necessary to store CDs alphabetically.

English

PRESENTING A NEW WAY TO PLAY
• Using the log pages at the back of this guide is one way to track the order of the CDs you
store. Or you can rely on the system Library to keep the list for you.
• Allow the system a little time to learn the choices you would make. But don’t worry, this
“DJ” is a fast learner.
• After the tracks on a CD are stored, any of them can be deleted. You can do this in the !
System menu, under Stored CDs.
Note: For information on how to use the System menu, refer to “Using System Menus” on
page 32. For details on how to eliminate tracks, refer to “DVD settings options” on page 46.
Storing entails two actions: placing the tracks from each CD in a holding area and processing
the tracks for efficient storage. This frees up the holding area. While the holding area is !
temporarily full, no more storage is possible. As an indicator, the media center displays the
message: BUSY PROCESSING CDS.
If you turn off the system, this processing goes faster. If you choose to use the system while it
is processing, the storing activity continues, but it may take a little longer.
If your CD collection is extensive, plan on several sessions to store all the tracks. Consider
the guidelines below for scheduling these sessions.
How much time to allow for storing CDs
• For storing 10 discs: 1 hour, although CDs that are damaged or need cleaning take longer.*!
(Allow about 5 minutes per disc, with some time for inserting and removing each disc.)
• For processing (searching databases and cataloging all the tracks) 10 discs: 6 hours, while
the system is turned off.
How many CDs you can store
• Using the AV 38 media center (indicated on the bottom): approximately 200 hours of music
or well over 200 CDs.
• Using the AV 48 media center (indicated on the bottom): approximately 340 hours of music
or well over 350 CDs.
What you can listen to while storing CDs
• You can listen to the AM or FM radio tuner, other CD tracks that are already stored, or other
sources connected to the system, like your TV (an analog connection is required).
• You cannot listen to the CD that is being stored, or watch a DVD using the media center
disc tray.
• As soon as the media center displays 100%, you can listen to the CD you have just stored
(using the CD player or Stored as the source), or you can replace the CD with a DVD and
watch a video.
• If your setup includes a Bose® link network, you can continue to listen to the system in
other rooms, too.
• You may notice some minor interruptions to the audio temporarily. But, if you have the
source connected using both digital and analog cables, you can still enjoy listening to it.
*If you notice one disc taking considerably longer to store, it may need to be cleaned. Refer to
“Cleaning discs” on page 55.

PRESENTING A NEW WAY TO PLAY
How the uMusic™ intelligent playback system works for you
We know that the time spent sorting through CDs to locate the tracks you prefer simply
delays your listening pleasure. Now, almost instantaneously, the uMusicTM system can do that
job for you: finding and playing what you most want to hear.
Why presets are important
The uMusic system provides Presets 1 through 9, ready and waiting to provide each member
of your household a private space for their personal listening preferences.
PRESENTING A NEW WAY TO PLAY
By using an exclusive preset, each listener helps this intelligent system distinguish their!
individual reactions to what it plays. Consider each preset a center point for that person’s
musical taste. Over time, the center may shift, as changes in taste and listening habits are
noted by the preset.
Feel free to assign the presets as you like, give each one a name, and press just one button
on the remote to switch quickly from one to another. Consider the benefits of reserving a !
preset for:
• Different members of your family, different roommates, different generations. !
For the preset selected, both the number and its name, if any, appear on the media center
display to help you keep the assignments straight.
Note: If several family members store their CD tracks on the system, be sure each one has an
assigned preset and uses that preset when listening.
• Different listening times or frames of mind: wake-up, workout, weekends, homework, yard
work, craft work, etc. For smaller households, it makes sense to change presets for different activities during your day.
Just remember that no preset is locked into its assignment. At any time, you can completely
clear the memory of a stored music preset and reassign it to another person or purpose. It’s
strictly your choice. And you are free to use one and only one preset forever, if that’s what you
prefer.
Switch from one to another easily
Pressing one or two buttons is all it takes.
• If you are not yet in the uMusic system mode, press the remote control Stored button to get
there.
• While in the uMusic system mode, press a number button, from 1 to 9, to activate one of
the presets.
Use the selection and rating buttons as you like
With your preset selected, do what you normally do while listening:
• Let the track play to its conclusion if you don’t want to take any action. Or,
• Press the Seek button to move on to the next track if you like. Or,
• Press Repeat for any tracks you want to hear again. Or,
• Use the + and – buttons to rate tracks you react to strongly.
No matter which of the above actions you take while listening, the system continues to select
from the entire contents of your stored music. Your preset keeps track of these responses, so
the system learns to play certain music more or less often. Yet, for tracks you rate negatively,
a small chance remains that you will hear that music in the future. Only by deleting a track
from the system can you ensure it will never play again.
Note: To name a preset, or delete a track from the system, select the appropriate option from
the System menu. For more information, refer to “DVD settings options” on page 46.

PRESENTING A NEW WAY TO PLAY
Take advantage of the system intelligence
As it stores and processes the tracks from your CDs, this system draws information about the
tracks from internal music databases. This data includes the name of each track, performing
artist, style of music (genre), and other meaningful information that helps characterize the
music you enjoy.
As a further benefit, Bose issues update discs to keep the music databases current. So even
your newest CD acquisitions will have this information available.
Be sure to fill out your card, or the online form, and return it to Bose.
Beyond just storing this data for your use, the system also allows you to edit it to better
reflect your associations with the music. For instance, if the embedded data classifies a CD
as “World” music, and you consider it part of your Latin collection, you can simply change the
genre of that CD. For any CDs not covered by the database (created at home or non-!
commercially produced), the system allows you to add information about that music to make
sure it displays as you like.
For details on what information can be added or changed and how to make these changes,
refer to “DVD settings options” on page 46.

Setting up a second room with sound
Your LIFESTYLE® DVD home entertainment system can direct sound to more than one room
at the same time. What’s more, it can direct the audio from two different sound sources (such
as CD, AM/FM tuner, TAPE, or AUX) to these rooms through two independent audio streams.
In additional rooms where you have speakers (beyond the main room where the media center
is located), you can choose to listen to either of the two audio streams. So, when music is
playing in the main room, listeners in other rooms can enjoy that same music or an entirely
different audio source from the system, for true independence.
REFERENCE
Capable of supplying up to 14 additional rooms with Bose® quality sound, one LIFESTYLE®
system can fill your entire living space with music.
Bose® link-compatible products make it easy
As an option to provide sound throughout your home (or even outdoors), the Bose® link !
network connects all the pieces and offers a variety of Bose products of consistent quality for
use in other rooms.
These include: the Bose link AL8 homewide wireless audio link. You can use it with the Wave®
music system, 3•2•1 Series II or 3•2•1 GS Series II systems, the LIFESTYLE® !
RoomMate® powered speakers, and other unpowered speakers for indoors or out. We also
offer amplifiers of different power ratings, plus the proper cables and adapters to connect it
all together.
With the purchase of a Bose® link remote control for each additional room, managing your
whole-house music system becomes quick and easy. It’s a simple matter to preset each
remote for the room where it will be used and for the audio stream you want it to receive.
For added versatility, you may prefer using a PERSONAL® music center II to control the sound
in your other rooms. Besides providing the ability to switch between program streams
instantly, this advanced remote provides an LCD screen that shows you what is currently
playing and what other listening options you have.
Regardless of which ones you choose, each Bose link-compatible product includes detailed
instructions for adding it to your LIFESTYLE® DVD home entertainment system.
