Your best bet is to contact Bose or listen to JIM.  There are a lot of older consoles for sale on line.  Plus your going to have a frustrating time to get the Sub and speakers connected to a receiver, and it probably will never sound as good.  

 

Another option, sell what you have online and use money forAcoustimass

10 speaker system, which is rated very high.

Probably not.  Why don't you try to find a replacement console on Ebay?

Hello greenline4, 

 

Thank you for reaching out via the Bose Community. Welcome to the site.

 

I am sorry to hear you are having issues with your Lifestyle 38 system.

 

Bose does not recommend using the speakers/subwoofer with an alternative AV receiver as this can have a negative effect on the performance of the speakers. Further to this, the subwoofer receives audio via a proprietary connection method which is non-standardized with other products.

 

If you wish to continue using the speakers, I would kindly suggest reaching out to support in your country here to discuss service, or as forum member jimgfitz suggested, look at replacement 38 consoles on auction websites. 

 

Kind regards,
