INTRODUCTION
Listening made easy
Specific uMusic+ remote buttons
The Bose® uMusic®+ intelligent playback system is an
advanced feature that makes it easy to store and enjoy
your music collection.
These special buttons include:
Some buttons on your system remote work specifically
with your stored music.
To experience how it does this, you first need to store
some music. Then, you can:
• Enjoy a wide selection of your collected music
without sorting through a clutter of discs.
• Hear continuous play of your stored music by
pressing the Stored button.
• Hear music that is similar to the track now playing by
pressing the Encore button.
• Hear the entire album that includes the track now
playing by pressing the Whole CD button.
• View your collection organized by genre, artist,
album, or track by pressing the Library button.
• Set up playlists (up to 9) with specific music for
specific occasions.
• Let the system pick the music you like as you listen to
your personal uStationTM selections.

GETTING STARTED
Storing a CD
Discs you can store
The first step in using the uMusic®+ system is to store
some of your collected music. The system does not
need to be on for this.
Audio CDs
Commercially produced CDs are identified by music
databases in the system. This data enables the
uMusic+ system software to recognize, categorize,
and make connections between songs.
There are two types of discs you can store.
1. Open the disc tray on the media center.
2. Put the disc in and close the tray.
3. Press the Store button on the media center.
ACCESSING GRACENOTE MEDIA DATABASE
appears on the display for an Audio CD.
When STORING appears on the lower right of the
display, you can check the percentage completed.
CD
47%
If the system does not recognize an album when you
start to store it, DISC NOT RECOGNIZED appears on
the media center display.
You may prefer to remove the disc to cancel storing.
Then, you can use music management software (like
iTunes), on a computer connected to the Internet, to
provide the album identity.
Or, you can choose to store this unrecognized disc,
then use the system Edit screen to add the identity.
STORED
STORING
4. When you see AUDIO CD (or MP3 DISC) STORED,
remove the disc.
Note: While storing an MP3 disc, you may see additional
messages (such as SKIPPED when a track on the disc is
corrupt or incorrectly formatted) or DUPLICATE (if the same
track is already in the system).
Before copying audio material onto your computer or creating an MP3 CD,
you should:
•Make sure you have the legal right to copy the particular audio content;
•Avoid sources of audio material that may be questionable, such as certain
file sharing facilities;
MP3s on CD or DVD
MP3 tracks that are created on a computer usually
include information (called ID3 tags), such as the artist
and album for each track.
MP3 tracks include this information when they are
burned onto a CD, DVD, or DVD-R (not a DVD+R) and
when the tracks are stored in the uMusic+ system.
For details on MP3 preparation, refer to “More about
compatible discs” on page 26.
•Not use the copies or CDs as a means to share audio content with others, but
confine such copying, where permissible, to your personal use.

GETTING STARTED
Reserving time for storing
Keeping music data up to date
• For an Audio CD, allow about 10 minutes. For MP3s,
estimate about 10 minutes for a disc of 25 tracks.
• When BUSY PROCESSING CDS appears on the
media center display, you need to wait before you
store more music.
Allow approximately one hour before you resume
storing.
• For 10 commercially produced CDs, it takes about 6
hours of processing time with the system turned off.
For MP3 tracks, this processing is not necessary.
• Using the system or having it turned on during
processing lengthens the time needed.
• Processing stops when your media center is
unplugged, turned off at an outlet, or the power fails.
Processing resumes when power is available again.
• If storing takes much longer than expected, the disc
may be marred or smudged.
You can remove the disc and wipe it off as instructed
in your Bose® owner’s guide. Then reinsert the disc
and resume storing.
A damaged or poor-quality disc can take 15 minutes
or more to store.
Whenever you store a CD, the system refers to an
internal music catalog for data about the CD. This data
includes 30 different musical characteristics, such as
style, tone, related artists, key influences, and
musicians.
4
This music catalog of data helps the uMusic®+
intelligent playback system work for you. So, whenever
you buy a newly released CD, you want the music
catalog to have the latest information about it.
Bose periodically sends a free update disc to registered
owners. You can use this disc to refresh the internal
music catalog data.
To receive your disc, it is important to mail your
completed product registration card to Bose.
If an Internet address is provided on your registration
card, you can use it to register online.
Note: If UNRECOGNIZED DISC appears on the media center
display, the identity of this album is not in the database on your
system. After using an update disc, the music identity (for a new
album in particular) may appear on the display.

USING INTELLIGENT PLAYBACK
Playing your music in a
whole new way
Selecting a uStation preset
When you first press the Stored button, you hear a
continuous and unedited variety of your stored music.
You may enjoy this style of play, which allows you to
explore your music with very little effort.
While your stored music plays, you can use the remote
to change uStations*. Simply press the preset number
for the uStation you want.
But there’s another side to uMusic®+ performance,
called intelligent playback, which seems to sense what
you want to hear.
Every uStation has a preset number already assigned.
You can reserve different numbers for members of your
family or for your different purposes.
You can also give each uStation a name as a reminder
of its purpose. See “Naming a uStationTM” on page 22.
Getting the system to listen
Your preferences for music may vary at a particular time
of day, for a repeated activity, or for a certain
atmosphere that you want.
Now you can teach the system to play music that suits
these varied tastes. You simply choose one of the nine
uStationsTM to serve as your student.
Not at all like a playlist, a uStation does not store a list
of tracks. Instead it keeps a log of your responses as
you listen to your music.
When a uStation is selected, every action you take –
skipping, repeating, or listening to an entire song –
provides clues to your taste. The uStation uses this log
of clues to select music that you find satisfying.
*uStations are not active when you play selections from
the Music Library, Playlist, CD #, or Whole CD. Press the
Encore or uMusic button on the remote to make a
uStation active. Then press the preset number for the
one you want.

Putting a uStation to work
Rating music in a uStation
1. Press the Stored button on the remote to begin
continuous play.
When a uStation is first selected, it doesn’t yet know
your preferences. So it starts by playing tracks from
your entire stored music collection.
TM
2. Press a preset number (1* - 9) on the remote for the
uStation you want to use.
The preset number, following a small u, appears on
the media center display.
3. As your stored music continues, respond to the
music in one of these ways:
• Listen to a track all the way through.
• Skip tracks you do not want to hear.
• Repeat a track that you find especially pleasing.
The uStation logs each of these responses, plus any
ratings you give the music. Over time, you may
notice how the focus of this uStation reflects your
preferences.
*When you play stored music for the first time, the system
automatically selects Preset 1. This preset is then
affected by the reactions of anyone who listens to the
music. To tailor a uStation to your tastes, you may want
to select a different preset number (2 - 9).
To refresh uStation 1, refer to “Clearing your uStationTM
log” on page 24.
20
You can use rating buttons on the remote control to
strongly identify what you do or do not want to hear.
• If you dislike a selection, press the – RATING
button.
The current track stops and the system selects
another track.
Tracks like those rated – are less likely to play when
the current uStation is selected.
• If you really like a selection, press the + RATING
button.
The current track continues to play.
Tracks like those rated + are more likely to play when
the current uStation is selected.

REFERENCE
Details on discs to store
Some additional details may help you use this Bose®
home entertainment system to its fullest.
More about compatible discs
Other than MP3 you cannot import data disc audio
formats such as Windows Media Audio (WMA) and
those protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM).
For details on creating MP3 files, refer to the music
management system on your computer.
Other details:
• You can store the same song from both an MP3 disc
and an audio CD. However, music data that is
provided with the MP3 does not apply to this same
song from the audio CD.
• If the songs from one album are stored, some from an
MP3 disc and others from an audio CD, they will not
all be recognized as coming from the same album.
• For any MP3 files to be recognized as songs from the
same album, they must be stored from the same MP3
disc. A two-session disc qualifies as one disc.
Before copying audio material onto your computer or creating an MP3 CD,
you should:
•Make sure you have the legal right to copy the particular audio content;
•Avoid sources of audio material that may be questionable, such as certain file
sharing facilities;
•Not use the copies or CDs as a means to share audio content with others, but
confine such copying, where permissible, to your personal use.
26
• The same track from two different MP3 discs will be
stored only once. When you press the CD # for the
disc stored first, the track will play. It will not play,
however, when you press CD # for the disc stored
later.
• If an album is on an MP3 disc twice, after storing, it
shows up just once under Albums. If there are two
different artists associated with the album, however,
each track appears twice in the Album list.
• If an audio CD and an MP3 disc contain the same
album, this album will be stored twice and listed twice
in the Albums category of the Music Library. The
tracks will be listed once under each album, but twice
in the list of all Tracks.

Extending your LIFESTYLE
system enjoyment
throughout your home
You’ve already discovered how your new LIFESTYLE®
system can digitally store hundreds of CDs and learn
your music tastes. Now it’s time to learn how you can
enjoy your favorite music all around your home – with
great-sounding homewide expansion options from
Bose.
Imagine. You’re enjoying some jazz on the deck, while
your kids are in the den watching a DVD. All from the
same system. All at the same time. But you don’t have
to stop with just two areas around your home. Your
LIFESTYLE® system lets you expand your listening
enjoyment in up to 14 rooms – even outdoors.
Your system has the capability to deliver music
throughout your home, not just your living room.
How can I get great sound and access my stored
music collection throughout my home?
Bose offers a number of flexible options to help
customize a solution that’s perfect for you. Here are
some ideas to get you started.
Music in the bedroom
Imagine having access to all your stored music from
your bedroom. Listen to a quiet classical track as you
drift off to sleep, or let one of your uStationTM presets
deliver more upbeat tunes as you get ready to go out
for dinner. While you could wire to your bedroom, this
room is often far away from your main system. Rather
than run wires from room to room, we suggest you pair
an AL8 homewide wireless audio link with a Wave®
music system for a simple and easy-to-set-up solution.
Music in the study
At the end of a long day, you can relax with some soft
jazz. Your study may be closer to the main room
system, so a wired solution might be more practical.
With LIFESTYLE® homewide powered speakers, you
can have the highest level of Bose® stereo quality all to
yourself.
Music outdoors
Summertime is best spent on the patio, grilling, and
entertaining friends. You can listen to the big game on
the radio and, during commercials, access your stored
music collection. Our Free Space® 51 environmental
speakers and an amplifier provide great sound in the
great outdoors. Our best-performing, most versatile
landscape speakers provide the perfect outdoor
solution.
