Bose kicks out upscale CineMate, Lifestyle sound bars

updated 05:30 pm EDT, Mon September 26, 2011

High-end sound bar commands $2500

Bose has introduced its first sound bars for home theaters, the CineMate 1 SR and Lifestyle 135. Both offerings maintain the company's focus on the high-end market, featuring compact speaker arrays built into a single sound-bar that can be placed in front of a television. The sound bars are paired with a wireless subwoofer to handle low frequencies.

The CineMate 1 SR offers an audio calibration system that analyzes sound levels throughout a room and adjusts frequencies for the specific acoustics in different areas. The sound bar can be connected directly to a television without the need for a dedicated receiver.

The Lifestyle 135 features a control console with six connections for video and audio sources, along with an FM/AM tuner and a dock for iPods and iPhones. The console provides an onscreen navigation interface for setup, while enabling video sources to be upscaled to 1080p.

Bose currently sells the CineMate 1 SR for $1500, while the Lifestyle 135 commands $2500.
