Can’t connect my old Bose Lifestyle system to my new TV, can I upgrade using my existing Bose speake

Updated: Feb 17, 2022


The answer is yes. Many people have purchased new 4K smart TV’s and are having difficulty connecting to their older Bose Lifestyle system. Many times, the issue is connecting new digital devices using HDMI cables; other times, it’s connecting the audio of programs that are streamed directly to the TV. Before you go out and purchase a completely new system, you have an option to upgrade your Bose console and bass speaker and use your existing Bose speakers. This upgrade will apply to 99% of older Bose systems. Note that this upgrade is available only through Bose certified dealers. There are many advantages with this upgrade such as 6 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI input with Audio Return Channel (ARC), single HDMI output to your TV, 4K pass through, universal remote control, IR Port, increased bass output, and the built-in Soundtouch Streaming Music platform which allows you to stream your favorite music sources. Please note if your existing older Bose Lifestyle system is connected to older Bose SA amplifiers for other zones in your home, these older SA amplifiers will need to be upgraded to the new Bose Sa-5 amplifiers.
