|Great Product and Easy set up Not much to say except that it works better than expected. I installed it in a closet with a 20ft 3. Nice solution I purchased one of these for my father-in-law to use in a cabinet he re-built. Great little product. Took about 5 minutes to install. Wow. It just works.

Switches 1-4 need to match those switch settings in your main remote. Set switches 5-9 for the room where you will use the Bose link remote.
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. Whats more, it can even direct sound from two different sound sources (such as CD, AM/FM tuner, TAPE, or AUX) to these rooms through two independent streams. In other rooms with speakers (beyond the main room where the media center is located), you can choose either of these streams from different sources, for true independence. If the system is on in the main room, listeners in other rooms can enjoy the same program playing there or an entirely different program. Capable of supplying up to 14 addiitonal rooms with Bose sound, one LIFESTYLE system can fill your entire living space with music.
Bose link: the key to assured compatibility
One option is using a Bose product you already own, if you want the sound in just one additional room. As a second option that can provide sound throughout your home (or even outside!), the Bose link network connects all the pieces and offers a variety of Bose products of consistent quality for use in the other rooms. These include smaller Bose systems, powered and unpowered speakers and amplifiers, plus the proper cables and adapters to complete your sound network. And by purchasing a Bose link remote control for each additional room, managing your whole-house music system becomes quick and easy. Inside these remotes, one small switch allows you to predetermine which rooms, as a group, will share the main room program stream and which other room or group of rooms will hear the alternate stream. For more versatility, you may prefer using a PERSONAL music center II remote control in your other rooms. Besides providing the ability to switch between program streams without setting switches, this advanced remote provides an LCD screen that shows you what is playing on both steams. So it is very easy to choose one or the other whenever you like. Regardless of which type you choose, with any Bose link remote control you also get detailed instructions on using the network. And a Bose link symbol on the cartons (for the products mentioned above) helps simplify your selections. For more information on your choices, or to purchase additional equipment, contact your local Bose dealer. Or, to reach Bose directly, refer to the address list included with the system.
Bose link remote switch settings
These settings are for use only with remote controls that have switches inside the battery compartment.* Make sure the house code switches (1, 2, 3, and 4) match those on your main remote. For switch 5, determine if you want the room grouped with the main room (A), so it receives the same program heard there. If you do not change switch 5, the room will receive the same program stream as is heard in the main room (A). If you set switch 5 up ( ), the room will receive a different stream than the main room (A).
*For the PERSONAL music center II remote control, the settings above are made in a menu on the display screen. 39

To use the DVR features, be sure to select the VCR source using your LIFESTYLE remote control. 3. Make the video connection: Make EITHER a composite (A) or an S-Video (B) connection from the DVR to the media center and use this SAME type of connection from the media center to a TV Video input (Figure 28). A. If the DVR has only a Composite video output jack, connect that to the ! Composite Video IN jack on the media center. B. If the DVR has an S-Video output jack, connect it to the S-Video IN jack on the media center. Then use another S-Video cable to connect the S-Video OUT jack on the media center to a Video input jack on the TV. 4. Make an optional audio connection from the cable or satellite box: Connect the L and R Audio output jacks from the cable or satellite box to the L and R Audio IN for CBL-SAT on the media center. To use cable or satellite box menus (for Pay Per View or Video on Demand), be sure to select the SAT source using your LIFESTYLE remote control. Figure 28

Using a component connection to your TV provides the highest-quality video reproduction of DVDs. This requires using two component cables (not supplied) and both of the supplied component video adapters. 1. 2. 3. Use one cable and an adapter to connect an audio/video device (cable or satellite box) to the media center (Figure 29). Use the second cable and an adapter to connect the media center to the TV. Be sure to activate the component video feature of your system when these connections are completed. Follow the instructions on page 35.

Enjoying your system in other rooms
Your media center connection panel provides two audio output jacks ! identified by the label Speakers. Main, the top one, sends audio to the speakers connected to the media center in the main room. Bose link, located just below Main, connects a cable that carries the sound to other speakers in other rooms. By using the Bose link option, you can add a variety of other Bose systems, speakers, and amplifiers (some designed specifically for this use) in up to 15 rooms total. Much more than simply extending the reach of your system, however, it adds another level of choice. From this one system, you can play two different sources in different areas of your house at the same time, indoors and out. For this purpose, Bose offers you the AL8 homewide wireless audio link or two types of cables that connect to the Bose link jack: Bose link A cable, which is designed for use with a LIFESTYLE SA-2 or SA-3 amplifier for passive Bose speakers (and included in the carton with either amplifier). Bose link B cable, designed for adding other Bose link-compatible systems and to be ! purchased at the same time. Your choice of systems includes: Wave music system 321TM Series II, 321 GS Series II, or 321 GSX system LIFESTYLE RoomMate speakers In addition to the above specialized cables, our Bose link-compatible product line includes: Remote controls for use outside the main room where your LIFESTYLE system is installed Expansion/extension cables for long runs into other rooms or adding multiple other rooms Cable adapters that may be required by your particular product for this purpose REFERENCE

The Lifestyle 28 Series III DVD system adds thrilling sound to your movies and music with the combination of performance, elegance and simplicity you expect from Bose. It customizes sound to your room with the innovative ADAPTiQ audio calibration system. The stylish media center features a progressive scan DVD/CD player and AM/FM tuner. Direct/Reflecting cube speaker arrays and a new horizontal center channel speaker fill your room with spacious surround sound. And all Lifestyle DVD systems feature Bose link home networking technology to connect compatible Bose products for a whole-home entertainment solution. From premium performance to elegance, the Lifestyle 28 III DVD system is made for your room - with all its unique characteristics. It includes the ADAPTiQ audio calibration system to deliver a consistent surround sound presentation in any room, while offering greater freedom of speaker placement. This proprietary technology analyzes and adjusts your Lifestyle system's sound to your room's dimensions, speaker placement and preferred seating locations. In a matter of minutes, you'll have Bose quality sound the way you like it. Nice and easy. The brushed silver media center features an integrated progressive scan DVD/CD player and AM/FM tuner. This one unit elegantly accomplishes everything that conventional home theater systems use multiple components to achieve. But it's also the hub of a whole-home entertainment system, made possible by Bose link home networking technology. This home networking technology allows you to connect compatible Bose products to your Lifestyle 28 III system for sound in as many as 14 additional rooms, even outdoors. Because, like you, your sound shouldn't live in one room. With Bose link technology, you can have independent volume control in each room, as well as access to two different audio streams from the same Lifestyle system. Direct/Reflecting cube speaker arrays, standing roughly 6" high, blend nicely with your decor. They combine with a sleek, horizontal center channel speaker to deliver a level of sound you'd expect from much larger speakers. And the Acoustimass module - now 30% smaller than the previous model - reproduces deep, resonant low notes while stationed inconspicuously almost anywhere in your room. The result? Riveting surround sound that seems to come from smaller speakers, whether it's the hypnotic whisper of rustling leaves or the pure power of a ferocious storm. Lifestyle systems are designed to make the most of DVDs and the rest of today's digital media. But you may still hold a spot in your heart for the film or TV classics you have on VHS. Keep them ... and enjoy them. The Lifestyle 28 III DVD system features an integrated suite of signal processing capabilities, including Videostage 5 decoding circuitry and digital 5.1 decoding. Together, they ensure a high-quality, 5.1-channel surround experience from practically any source. Even those recorded well before surround sound was an option. No matter what you want to hear - or where you want to hear it - the Lifestyle 28 Series III DVD system makes it all possible with performance, elegance and simplicity.
