Thanks in advance for helping -- I've been reading up on this forum and other sites and know the inherent problems with Bose -- I moved into a home a few years ago with a Bose Lifestyle 38 system with the cube speakers. It's a 5.1 system with in wall wiring... I'm ready to move on as I'm getting a new TV and want to use the HDMI eArc which obviously isn't compatible with the Bose setup.

As I'm not a super picky audiophile (ie I just want movies sports tv to sound good) if there's a world where I could just hook up the existing speakers to an AV receiver that does what I want it to and has the HDMI hookups I need, that would be fine... but at the very least if I need to replace the system and get new speakers... can I at least use the existing speaker wire with new speakers?

Apologies for the admittedly novice question... just trying to figure out a setup that will sound good but won't break the bank. But I also want to go with a solution that will last for years and not a band-aid fix so if that involves replacing the speakers I'm ok to go that route. Photos of a few of the components below in case that helps... Thanks

Those Lifestyle speakers use proprietary connections so you're SOL probably.
