Bose lifestyle 535 series 2 and sa3 amplifier

I have a lifestyle 535 series 2 and a sa3 amplifier and I was wondering if they are compatible for an expansion. I have tried to setup the amplifier  with no luck so far. I have made all connections and the amplifier led just blink 4 times and then is of repeating the cycle.  Also have a rc35s remote and I don’t know if it is compatible with the sa3. My other question is if the sa3 can be used as a stand alone amplifier using the rca imput? Thanks for your help.


Re: Bose lifestyle 535 series 2 and sa3 amplifier

Hello Cricardov, 


Welcome to the forums!


The LifeStyle535 II system is not compatible with Boselink expansion. It can instead be used with a SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter for SoundTouch based expansion. As a result, it is not compatible with the SA-3, as this is designed to be connected to a Boselink source. Without a source, it cannot be used as an amp with the remote. 


I hope this helps!
