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?
Re: BA735 no sound but sound card works in analog mode.
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.

The male mono plug (from the left small speaker) should be connected into the right speaker (small speaker with controls) . After plugging the multi pin cable from the control speaker to the sub-woofer you need to plug in a signal source from your computer (or any other digital signal) into the sub-woofer. This digital input looks like an ordinary RCA plug but carries many channels of audio. That connects to the enabled digital output of your computer. Some computers output digital through a 3.5mm jack others look just like an RCA phono jack. If you are lucky some BA735 sub-woofers have a second input that is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack and it will take analog audio from computer, DVD, MP3 player or the like. I have three sets of these speakers that I love because of their big volume considering such a small size.
The cable with 2 rings is stereo, a single ring is mono, you have to make sure that you are using the right cable/speaker combo. The speaker output is usually lime green, hope this helps, more info perhaps?
I use one set of BA735 with two computers. Computer A sends digital out
and Computer B sends analog. BA735 plays both. I listen to music using
digital while the analog from the other computer alerts me to the
incoming messages in Pidgin.
I did have to change bios settings on one computer to use the on-board audio.
To enable digital output in XP, click on the speaker icon > Advanced
> Select Enable SPDIF. You can leave the PC Spk Mute unchecked if
you want the analog output as well. That's all.
I hope you are able to enjoy the rich sound of BA735. It's beautiful.
My ears thank a lot for replacing those desktop speakers. BA735 hardly
takes up any space . Two small speakers are perched on the hutch and
the bass module is somewhere behind the desk, completely invisible.
I just got the dell vostro 410 and had the same problem... So I unpluged the digital cable, got a 1/8 male to 1/8 male cord, plugged it into the analog in on the back of ba735 and the other end into my headphone jack on the front of my system and the speakers work great again......... I have XP Prof. installed as os. Hope this helps... by the way 1/8 is the plug that is on the opposite end of your ba735 digital cable that plugs into your computer, just need a cable with that plug on both ends...
Try getting a 1/8 male plug on each end of cable and plug into the analog in on back of BA735 and the other end into the earphone jack on your laptop.... Sould have your sound with no other update or downloads.... Good luck! By the way you won't need the digital cable anymore...
Hello there! lellya
1) you have to tell , what kind of sound card you got? on board audio? A7, or Creative Audigy? 5.1 or regular.
2) then, you have to connect one speaker to the other, one two way connector cable, for the 2 KOSS speakers.
3) another cable that goes in back of your koss and from the out of your KOSS Speakers to the input of your sound card, at back of your PC, this input is your sound card jack.
4) its supose to work like so.
