The Lifestyle 48 isn't designed to work with other speakers. The AV48 receiver does have audio outs on the back of it. So there is a chance you could connect it that way, though there is a very good chance you would have audio delay issues between the Lifestyle speakers and the B&O system.

Why are you planning on keeping the AV48 receiver connected? Is it for Music? If it's because you want to use another receiver for your HDTV, I made a guide to help show people how to connect a Lifestyle DVD system to 4K devices. Depending on your subwoofer you could even upgrade your receiver.

 

Let us know what your plan is and why you want to keep the AV48 connected 🙂

It's either or really. Either you want to use the Bose system or you want to use the B&O system. They should not be put together in one room.

 

Your lifestyle system is designed specifically to be an all-in-one system and not to be used with other speakers in the main room

 

I will also point out there there is a VERY good chance that there will be audio delay issues between the Lifestyle system and the B&O system. Also if you go for the suggestion below, you would require you to use two remotes to control the volume on both the Lifestyle & B&O speakers. 

 

So this is a workaround that I believe will cause more headaches than it is worth. So I will say do not go for the recommendation I will suggest below. Your Lifestyle receiver and speakers are a self-contained system and your B&O amp & speakers are another self-contained system.

 

If you still want to go ahead and try this out it should be simple as the AV48 receiver has Audio out connections on the back that you would connect to either the Digital Coax or Optical inputs on your amp.

AV18 / AV38 / AV48 receiverAV18 / AV38 / AV48 receiver

But if you want more power I would just replace the Bose system with the B&O or at the very least upgrade its receiver as I mentioned in my earlier post.

It looks like that Onkyo (?) receiver is as old as the AV48 but that Onkyo (?) receiver has more connections on the back. Why not just connect all your devices to it directly?

 

I still don't think it is a good idea to have two self-contained systems working together with the same TV for the reasons I stated above. But you now should know how to connect them if that is what you are going to do.

I hope my questions don't come off poorly in any way, but I just don't understand why you want to mix in two independent receivers in one room with (I'm guessing) a single TV.

 

With audio delay issues and the requirement to use two remotes to control the volume, I really don't see why you don't just replace the Lifestyle 48 with Your Yamaha/B&O system. Especially since you have talked so much about how you prefer the B&O sound in another post and apparently you like the features present on the Yamaha receiver. 

 

If you only wish to keep the AV48 for Music, then you can still do that, but you should only use it for that and disconnect the subwoofer and speakers to only use it as a jukebox.

 

You can see if your subwoofer supports the far superior AV35 receiver or if not you can just purchase another AV18/38/48 receiver or the LSPS III subwoofer to use with an AV35 on eBay. That or sell the speakers and subwoofer on eBay or give them to a family member or a friend and let them know what they need to purchase to make it work.

 

p.s. What's the model of the Yamaha receiver btw encase anyone in the future reads this and wants to know.
