Details mean everything. So we compromised on nothing.
Beauty's in the eyeÔÇöand earÔÇöof the beholder. So we designed the Lifestyle 650 home entertainment system to be beautiful in every way. Acoustics. Aesthetics. Craftsmanship. Simplicity. For your movies and music, it's the most uncompromising 5-speaker home cinema system we've ever made.
Spotlight on speakers
We have a long history of creating big sound from small packages. With OmniJewel satellite speakersÔÇöeven smaller than our Jewel Cube speakers, which are also available for this systemÔÇöwe're rewriting that history with a new chapter on elegance. Each of these tiny speakers features a carefully milled aluminium housing with two acoustic enclosures for dual-opposing drivers. This is the key to creating our first omnidirectional speaker for true 360-degree sound and a more spacious home cinema experience. It took a team of 30 people to perfect every last detail, ensuring the acoustics would work with the aesthetics. And the rear speakers? Wireless.
The centre channel matches the sleekness of your TV and offers greater performance than previous centre channel speakers. It's packed with five precision speakers and coated in an anodised aluminium finish.
Thunderous bass. Wireless connectivity.
Of course you want that resounding bass performance for movies and music. But you don't want a monstrous piece of equipment to enable it. With its premium glass-top finish, our wireless Acoustimass┬« module delivers on sound and style. A powerful driver and QuietPortÔäó technology combine for best-in-class performance for its size.
Statements in elegance, continuedÔÇŽ
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 HDMIÔäó inputs and more. And it's all controlled with a universal remote.
Same system, different speakers.
