Question about Boston Acoustics BA735 Computer Speakers

3 Answers

BA735 no sound but sound card works in analog mode.

I have the BA735 connected to a Creative SB Audigy sound card. Cable has mini-jack at computer end and RCA like phone plug at speaker end. No sound with BA digital speakers, but sound card works fine with analog speakers. How can you diagnose if problem is with sound card or with speakers not converting output from the sound card?

    The BA735 only accepts a digital in signal and would not work on an analog output on the sound card so it is not possible to substitute the digital BA735 and another set of analog speaker to isolate the problem. The only real solution seems to be to find someone I know that might have a computer with a sound card that has a digital signal output and see if my speakers work. I can think of no stand alone solution to test the BA735 (digital) speakers.

This should be pretty easy to diagnose. both speakers have mini jacks right? if so, and you plug one pair of speakers in on say, port "A" and you get sound then if you plug your other speakers in on port "A" and you don't get any sound, the problem is with your speakers.

I had a similar problem with a used set of BA735 speakers hooked to my Mac. I plugged a stereo 1/8" cable into the analog port on the back of the subwoofer. Presto! My speakers worked.

The solution is that you cannot use those speakers on a system that does not support digital only.. because the speakers are strictly digital which cuts down the possibilities immensly.

Marantz how to connect 6005 amplifier to ipod


There are many solutions, I show two. The tip photo, shows a more expansive one. the lower photo the cheaper one. But both have two tulip plugs on the side for the amplifier and one 3,5 mm stereo telephone plug to the other side.
I tried both on a good stereo set, and could not hear different quality in sound. My guess, the quality comping from my iPods, iPhone and iPad is not the same as from my CD player. On the CD player, a better cable proved to give a better sound.

How to connect speakers logitech z 5500 to the TV Samsung UN32F5500 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim Smart LED


Hello there!
I have seen manuals of both the systems. You have two options to connect Logitech z5500 speakers to Samsung UN32F5500 TV.
1. With Optical Audio Cable.

0daa0bcc-2410-4f3f-9f1b-001ec53d8ec3.jpg

2. Stereo Ear Phone Connection.
Simply plug in Green earphone cable of Logitech Speakers to Green Audio out Jack described on Page 7 of the TV manual. If you are using stereo EP you may not experience 5.1sound separation. And it is also mentioned that you should not use other two audio cables of the tri-EP-cable provided with Logitech speakers.

Have a nice day!

If there is an RCA output (red & white), you can get an RCA to 3.5mm mini jack adapter at a store like Radio-Shack in the US or the Source in Canada.
