Hi, I have a Bose Lifestyle 8 which is reasonable for home theatre. Just wondering though, if I wanted better speakers at the front for music (the cubes don't do CD music justice) can I upgrade or plug in better speakers?


This would save me buying a whole new system which at present is tough - Christmas and all.


thanks

Why not just sell the whole Bose system and simply add a $700 AUD Logitech Z-680 to any old DVD player? That Bose system *reallllllyyy* sucks, and a decent DVD player + The Z-680's would KILL even the Lifestyle 35, I believe...


Here's a price in Australia for them....

Ooo... DTS, Dolby Digital 5.1, you can upgrade speaker wire to good 16 gauge or something, you can plug your DVD player in with a good Coaxial wire... might wanna go check out some Mini to RCA converters tho... :) I am assuming that you have a DVD player plugged into the LS8? So you have a CD player and a DVD player? Ya... Get the Z-680's... they will SOO be an upgrade.


Hmmm, you are in advertising and bought Bose? *chuckles* I thought you'd know that Bose is one of those companies that is fluff over content? Advertising over good sound? That sells a fantasy of high fidelity?

Oh dear. Yep I got sucked in, but not by advertising but by another great trick and that is to set up a neat demo display at a home show:) We went to a home show and heard a Bond film being pumped out really loud. We wandered over and sat down and had a listen and to us it sounded great! So we thought, hell let's get a "decent" home theatre system. As a bit of a novice it did and does sound good for home theatre but for CD music... not good in my opinion. The mid range sound is lacking. So I have been thinking a while now on changing to something that won't cost a fortune that has decent front speakers for music but still has the clarity for home theatre I want. One of my options was to connect some decent speakers at the front of the system, but I guess that either can't be done, or would not sound too good?


Thanks all
