Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I saw your response to the Denon posting, and want to connect a Bose Acoustimass to an A/V receiver without having the other channel speakers go through the Acooustimass. My question is this, if I connect the Acoustimass to the receiver with the multi-pin connector (but only connecting the Acoustimass to the receiver), but then connect my other speakers directly to the receiver, will the receiver properly control the sound distribution, and will the Acoustimass work properly?

On the end opposite of the jacks (top of the sub opposite connectors) in the exact middle, there is a ratchet looking device (flashlight and magnifying glass reveal the little culprit) with a very small flat screw driver rotate the piece CCW until a small tab is protruding from the middle. Pu the palm of your hand on the plastic case and give it a small whack (in the direction of the jacks) it will move about a 1.2 inch. Lift straight up and the case will come off and reveal the connectors. Trust me, get a flashlight and magnifying glass and peer through the small crack between the cover and the box, you will see the little notch (encoder looking) rotating wheel

I have the same question. I just called Bose at 1-877-210-3782 (prompt 6) and they have two solutions:
1. 20 foot Input extension - $25
2. Input adaptor - $12 (you can run your own speaker cable to the input adaptor)

You can buy it on ebay but it's cheaper just to make one. If you can solder, all you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Here is a diagram of the connections.
