INTRODUCTION  
Specific uMusic+ remote buttons  
Listening made easy  
Some buttons on your system remote work specifically  
with your stored music.  
The Bose® uMusic®+ intelligent playback system is an  
advanced feature that makes it easy to store and enjoy  
your music collection.  
These special buttons include:  
To experience how it does this, you first need to store  
some music. Then, you can:  
• Enjoy a wide selection of your collected music  
without sorting through a clutter of discs.  
• Hear continuous play of your stored music by  
pressing the Stored button.  
• Hear music that is similar to the track now playing by  
pressing the Encore button.  
• Hear the entire album that includes the track now  
playing by pressing the Whole CD button.  
• View your collection organized by genre, artist,  
album, or track by pressing the Library button.  
• Set up playlists (up to 9) with specific music for  
specific occasions.  
• Let the system pick the music you like as you listen to  
your personal uStationTM selections.

GETTING STARTED  
Discs you can store  
Storing a CD  
There are two types of discs you can store.  
The first step in using the uMusic®+ system is to store  
some of your collected music. The system does not  
need to be on for this.  
Audio CDs  
Commercially produced CDs are identified by music  
databases in the system. This data enables the  
uMusic+ system software to recognize, categorize,  
and make connections between songs.  
1. Open the disc tray on the media center.  
2. Put the disc in and close the tray.  
If the system does not recognize an album when you  
start to store it, DISC NOT RECOGNIZED appears on  
the media center display.  
3. Press the Store button on the media center.  
ACCESSING GRACENOTE MEDIA DATABASE  
appears on the display for an Audio CD.  
You may prefer to remove the disc to cancel storing.  
Then, you can use music management software (like  
iTunes), on a computer connected to the Internet, to  
provide the album identity.  
When STORING appears on the lower right of the  
display, you can check the percentage completed.  
Or, you can choose to store this unrecognized disc,  
then use the system Edit screen to add the identity.

STORED  
MP3s on CD or DVD  
STORING  
MP3 tracks that are created on a computer usually  
include information (called ID3 tags), such as the artist  
and album for each track.  
4. When you see AUDIO CD (or MP3 DISC) STORED,  
remove the disc.  
MP3 tracks include this information when they are  
Note: While storing an MP3 disc, you may see additional  
messages (such as SKIPPED when a track on the disc is  
corrupt or incorrectly formatted) or DUPLICATE (if the same  
track is already in the system).  
+
For details on MP3 preparation, refer to “More about  
compatible discs” on page 26.  
Before copying audio material onto your computer or creating an MP3 CD,  
you should:  
•Make sure you have the legal right to copy the particular audio content;  
•Avoid sources of audio material that may be questionable, such as certain  
file sharing facilities;  
•Not use the copies or CDs as a means to share audio content with others, but  
confine such copying, where permissible, to your personal use.

GETTING STARTED  
Reserving time for storing  
Keeping music data up to date  
• For an Audio CD, allow about 10 minutes. For MP3s,  
estimate about 10 minutes for a disc of 25 tracks.  
Whenever you store a CD, the system refers to an  
internal music catalog for data about the CD. This data  
includes 30 different musical characteristics, such as  
style, tone, related artists, key influences, and  
musicians.  
• When BUSY PROCESSING CDS appears on the  
media center display, you need to wait before you  
store more music.  
This music catalog of data helps the uMusic®+  
intelligent playback system work for you. So, whenever  
you buy a newly released CD, you want the music  
catalog to have the latest information about it.  
Allow approximately one hour before you resume  
storing.  
• For 10 commercially produced CDs, it takes about 6  
hours of processing time with the system turned off.  
For MP3 tracks, this processing is not necessary.  
Bose periodically sends a free update disc to registered  
owners. You can use this disc to refresh the internal  
music catalog data.  
• Using the system or having it turned on during  
processing lengthens the time needed.  
• Processing stops when your media center is  
unplugged, turned off at an outlet, or the power fails.  
Processing resumes when power is available again.  
• If storing takes much longer than expected, the disc  
may be marred or smudged.  
To receive your disc, it is important to mail your  
completed product registration card to Bose.  
If an Internet address is provided on your registration  
card, you can use it to register online.  
You can remove the disc and wipe it off as instructed  
in your Bose® owner’s guide. Then reinsert the disc  
and resume storing.  
A damaged or poor-quality disc can take 15 minutes  
or more to store.  
Note: If UNRECOGNIZED DISC appears on the media center  
display, the identity of this album is not in the database on your  
system. After using an update disc, the music identity (for a new  
album in particular) may appear on the display.

USING INTELLIGENT PLAYBACK  
Selecting a uStation preset  
Playing your music in a  
whole new way  
Every uStation has a preset number already assigned.  
You can reserve different numbers for members of your  
family or for your different purposes.  
When you first press the Stored button, you hear a  
continuous and unedited variety of your stored music.  
You may enjoy this style of play, which allows you to  
explore your music with very little effort.  
But there’s another side to uMusic®+ performance,  
called intelligent playback, which seems to sense what  
you want to hear.  
While your stored music plays, you can use the remote  
to change uStations*. Simply press the preset number  
for the uStation you want.  
You can also give each uStation a name as a reminder  
of its purpose. See “Naming a uStationTM” on page 22.  
Getting the system to listen  
Your preferences for music may vary at a particular time  
of day, for a repeated activity, or for a certain  
atmosphere that you want.  
Now you can teach the system to play music that suits  
these varied tastes. You simply choose one of the nine  
uStationsTM to serve as your student.  
Not at all like a playlist, a uStation does not store a list  
of tracks. Instead it keeps a log of your responses as  
you listen to your music.  
When a uStation is selected, every action you take –  
skipping, repeating, or listening to an entire song –  
provides clues to your taste. The uStation uses this log  
of clues to select music that you find satisfying.  
*uStations are not active when you play selections from  
the Music Library, Playlist, CD #, or Whole CD. Press the  
Encore or uMusic button on the remote to make a  
uStation active. Then press the preset number for the  
one you want.

The uStation logs each of these responses, plus any

Undoing your album edits  
Deleting tracks, edits, and  
ratings  
You can choose to undo the edits you have made to  
any album. Taking this action overwrites your edits with  
the music information originally provided by the system  
database.  
The better you know this system, the better you know  
what you want from it.  
This does not affect the names of playlists or uStation  
presets.  
To get it just right, you may want to undo what has  
already been done.  
To revert to the original information:  
Your options include:  
• Changing the uStationTM influences by clearing its log.  
1. In the Music Library, highlight the album you want  
to change.  
• Making sure that some music never plays, even  
occasionally.
