Details mean everything. So we compromised on nothing.
The first thing you notice is the beautiful design. Then you turn it on, and powerful audio pours from our redesigned Jewel Cube speakers. If you want great performance—and value—in a Bose surround sound system, you’ll find the Lifestyle 600 home entertainment system delivers on those expectations. And with SoundTouch included, it goes well beyond traditional home theater. For movies, TV, sports and music, it’s a great choice to keep everyone fully entertained.
Spotlight on speakers
Our Jewel Cube speakers have long been the standard for prodigious sound from a small design. Precisely angled drivers within each enclosure reproduce a blend of direct and reflected sound for greater spaciousness and no “sweet spots.” Sit anywhere you’d like—you’ll experience an immersive audio experience that adds depth and drama to whatever you watch. And when it’s time to relax with a favorite playlist, you’ll appreciate the clarity and fullness of your music.
The center channel provides clear dialogue for movies and TV shows, plus pristine vocals from your favorite music. Its horizontal design fits in well with your TV, with a small footprint that makes it easy to place.
Thunderous bass. Wireless connectivity.
The Lifestyle 600 system is more than its Jewel Cube speakers. You also get resounding bass performance for movies and music from a wireless Acoustimass module. With its premium glass-top finish, it delivers on sound and style. A powerful driver and QuietPort technology combine for best-in-class performance for its size.
Statements in elegance, continued …
The polished glass curvature of the console has a singular style you can’t ignore. But it’s more than just good looks. The console houses all of your technological needs: Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® connectivity for wireless music streaming, 4K video compatibility, 6 HDMI™ inputs and more. And it’s all controlled with a universal remote.

Can the Acoustimass module be wired?

What placement guidelines should be considered to ensure optimal audio performance of the Acoustimass module?

What kind of batteries does the remote control use?

How do I access SoundTouch music with the universal remote?
You access SoundTouch music by selecting the “SoundTouch” button or select it from the source menu—similar to how you access other entertainment sources. From there, you can select one of your presets or browse the Recents list. The 1 through 6 buttons on the remote also will play a preset once the system is turned on and the SoundTouch source is selected.
Can I stream video from the Internet, like Netflix, to the Lifestyle system using SoundTouch?
No. SoundTouch is designed to stream audio/music formats only. It does not stream Internet-video sources or videos stored on a computer. For this, you would need to use a streaming device such as Apple TV or Roku.
What is the Skill?
The Skill enables Bose SoundTouch customers to control elements of the SoundTouch experience through Alexa by speaking to an Amazon Echo, Dot or Tap, or any Alexa-enabled device.
What can the Skill do?
With the Skill, users can:
Play music set to a SoundTouch preset. For example, “Alexa, ask Bose to play Preset 1.”
Play content in a specific room. For example, “Alexa, ask Bose to play Preset 1 in the living room.”
Play/pause/resume and skip tracks. For example, “Alexa, ask Bose to pause.”
Adjust volume. For example, “Alexa, ask Bose to turn this up.”
Play the same music everywhere. For example, “Alexa, ask Bose to play this everywhere.”
Find out what’s playing. For example, “Alexa, ask Bose what’s playing.”
Turn on/off. For example, “Alexa, ask Bose to turn off.”
How will existing customers be able to access the Skill?
The Skill will be available to all existing SoundTouch owners through a free software update. The Skill itself is free, and it is enabled through the Skills section of the Amazon Alexa companion app. An Alexa-enabled device like an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot is also required to use the Skill.
Which SoundTouch speakers are compatible with the Skill?
The Skill is compatible with all Bose SoundTouch speakers.
Where is the Skill available?
The Skill is available in the US in English only.

No. The Skill will only control music features of the SoundTouch system, such as access to presets, “what’s playing” and multi-room music listening on home theater systems like the SoundTouch 300.
Why is it necessary to say, “ask Bose to …”?
This is how Alexa Skills are currently constructed. In working with Amazon, we determined that this is currently the best way to bring the benefits of Alexa voice control to our SoundTouch customers.
Will the level of integration between Bose and Alexa change over time?
Yes. We have worked very closely with Amazon to develop this Skill, and we will continue to collaborate with Amazon as the Alexa platform evolves to take advantage of all its latest features and capabilities.
