INTRODUCTION  
Thank you  
By choosing a Bose® PERSONAL® music center II, you have  
opened the door to a variety of new options for playing your  
LIFESTYLE® home entertainment system – in almost any area of  
your home!  
This new music center II provides you with:  
• Easy access to system options, which appear right on the  
remote control screen.  
• Instant confirmation, because you not only hear, but also see  
what you’ve selected on the display screen.  
• Control of your LIFESTYLE® home entertainment system from a  
different room or floor of your house.  
• On-screen information about your stored music and the  
uMusic®+ intelligent playback system choices for enjoying it  
(on LIFESTYLE® 38 or 48 systems, only).  
• Control of speakers set up in the same area as the remote, or a  
local Bose system with other audio sources you can play.  
Other equipment you can control  
To enjoy the full benefit of your LIFESTYLE® system outside the  
main room where the system is set up, you need to have speakers  
or a local system that can reproduce the sound where you want it.  
For that purpose, Bose offers a selection of expansion products  
that work together seamlessly due to one common ingredient:  
Bose® link compatibility. These products include:  
• LIFESTYLE® SA-2 or SA-3 amplifiers that work with a variety of  
Bose passive speakers.  
• LIFESTYLE® Homewide powered speaker system.  
• Bose 3•2•1® DVD home entertainment systems.  
• The Bose Wave® music system.  
Instead, you can use a previously purchased Bose product, called  
a legacy product, which does not have built-in Bose® link compat-  
ibility. Products by other manufacturers can also be a part of your  
expansion room setup. However, they allow varying degrees of  
control when paired with your PERSONAL® music center II.  
Note: Unauthorized modification of the receiver or radio remote  
control could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment.  
The remote control conforms to the RTTE Directive 99/5/EC (R+TTED).  
The complete Declaration of Conformity can be found on <www.bose.com>

PREPARING FOR USE  
Where to begin  
Your expansion system or speakers must be set up and con-  
nected to the LIFESTYLE® system before you can use them with  
the PERSONAL® music center II.  
If you have a Bose® link product and still need to set it up, see “To  
add more rooms of sound” on page 25.  
If you have an older (legacy) product to use with the remote, refer  
to “Using other products for expansion” on page 26.  
If you have already set up and connected your expansion system,  
you can get your remote ready to use now.  
Installing the batteries  
Use your PERSONAL® music center II with the LIFESTYLE®  
system after installing the supplied batteries, as follows:  
1. On the back of the PERSONAL® music center II, slide the  
battery compartment cover off.  
2. Install the four AA (IEC LR6) batteries, matching the polarity  
markings (+ and –) to the markings inside the battery com-  
partment (Figure 1).  
3. Slide the battery cover back into place.

PREPARING FOR USE  
Confirm that current settings are right  
Your PERSONAL® music center II is pre-set at the factory for  
compatibility, as follows:  
To control sound in a single expansion room – Room B – or area  
(not in Room A, the location of your LIFESTYLE® media center).  
• A house code identical to the one given every new LIFESTYLE®  
system.  
For details, see “Why would you change the house code?” on  
page 24.  
To receive Audio stream 2, which is different from the stream  
that delivers sound in the main room where the LIFESTYLE®  
media center is located.  
For details, see “Audio streams multiply your options” on  
page 24.  
• English as the language used for display text.  
With a LIFESTYLE® system previously set up and used with  
another language, your PERSONAL® music center II detects the  
difference (only the first time you turn it on), and pauses opera-  
tion to switch to that language.  
Note: To learn how to select a different text display language for  
your system, refer to “Media center options” in the Operating Guide  
that came with the system.  
If the above settings are right, you can begin to use your remote  
now.  
Change the settings, as needed  
• Language: to change display text to your preferred language,  
press the Setup button.  
For further information on how to make the change, see “Adjust-  
able features of the PERSONAL® music center II” on page 21.  
• Room codes: to choose a different code that will either be  
unique to your PERSONAL® music center II or the same as the  
main room, see “The importance of room codes” on page 23.  
• House codes: to learn how to match your PERSONAL® music  
center II house code to one that has been changed in your  
LIFESTYLE® primary remote, see “Why would you change the  
house code?” on page 24.  
• Audio stream: for instructions on changing streams and an  
explanation of your choices, see “Audio streams multiply your  
options” on page 24.

LISTENING TO YOUR LIFESTYLE® SYSTEM  
Using radio presets  
Your LIFESTYLE® system can store up to 20 AM and 20 FM  
stations as radio presets.  
By assigning a preset number to the stations you like most, you  
can get to them quickly and easily. All of the presets can be used  
in any of the expansion rooms.  
To assign preset numbers:  
Most simply, you can let the system assign the next available pre-  
set number to the station you have tuned in.  
• Press and hold the Presets button until a preset number  
appears on the display next to the station identity.  
Or, assign a specific preset number to a station by following steps  
1 through 5:  
1. Press the Presets button to see the list of established  
presets for FM or AM.  
2. Move up or down to highlight the preset you prefer.  
3. Move right to select that preset number.  
4. Tip up or down on the center bar  
to tune in the  
station you want assigned to the selected preset number.  
5. Press in on the center bar to confirm the assignment.  
Playing a CD  
Make sure there is a CD in the disc tray. The player can then begin  
play as soon as you select CD/DVD from the source list.

Listening to other sources  
Your LIFESTYLE® system has connection jacks for other compo-  
nents, like a TV, VCR, and cable or satellite box, and can select  
and operate the additional source connected using these jacks.  
Each one of these components also appears in the source list of  
your PERSONAL® music center II. So, once a component in the  
list has been turned on, you can select and listen to it.  
Note: Except for a TV, the PERSONAL® music center II will not turn  
components connected to your LIFESTYLE® system on or off.  
• For a video component, use the up and down arrows  
your PERSONAL® music center II to change channels.  
on  
Or use numeric entry as described on page 15. You can enter  
up to 5 digits.  
• For other components, you may also be able to seek, pause,  
and resume play as you can for a CD or DVD playing on the  
system. However, this depends on the type and brand of the  
connected equipment.

LISTENING TO YOUR LOCAL SOURCE  
How a nearby sound source differs  
Your PERSONAL® music center II is engineered for use with any  
Bose® link enabled products in your expansion room.  
For example, speakers connected to a Bose SA-2 or SA-3 ampli-  
fier respond to on and off commands from the PERSONAL® music  
center II, as well as muting and volume changes.  
On the other hand, a Bose 3•2•1 Series II or 3•2•1 GS Series II  
system or a Bose Wave® music system connected in the expan-  
sion room gives you another full sound source. If an SA-3 amplifier  
in your expansion room has a TV or other audio component con-  
nected, that too qualifies as a local sound source.  
Because this local source is within view, you can see how it  
responds to commands from the PERSONAL® music center II by  
observing its display panel.  
Choosing and using your local source  
This additional sound source is identified as Local in the list of  
sources on your PERSONAL® music center II display.  
Note: Local is not an available selection when your PERSONAL®  
music center II is set for use in Room A.  
To listen to your local source:  
1. Press  
2. Move up or down to highlight Local and press in on the center  
bar to confirm the selection.  
to see the list of sources.  
This turns on the nearby Bose link compatible system to the  
volume, play medium (radio, CD, etc.), and preset (if that applies)  
last selected.  
What you can do with it  
If your local source has a display screen, refer to this display to  
see the results of actions you take using your PERSONAL® music  
center II.  
The PERSONAL® music center II display (Figure 12) offers a  
generic guide to the actions you can take.
