HSU is pretty well respected for their subwoofers. They make quality stuff, and its built in the USA to.

The nice thing about the HSU set is that you get satilites all around, but your center speaker is larger. With the Bose system male voices cannot be reproduced by their speakers alone, which means some of the bass will for vocals will end up in the sub.

BOSE= Box Only Sound Extra

I'd buy a Def Tech Procinema 800 or 1000 and a $400 receiver ANYDAY before buying a BOSE Lifestlye system.

I guess my giftcard to Bose is basically useless. Was looking at the Lifestyle systems, not sure what I'll get now. I need a system that doesn't take up much space.
Do the wireless speakers lose sound performance compared to a wired setup?
