Question about Boston Acoustics BA735 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Will these speakers work with a Mac laptop?

I have these Boston Acoustics BA735 speakers for my Dell desktop computer, but I want to hook them up to work with my new Mac laptop. There aren't many places for plugs, so I wanted to see if this was possible before I disconnected them from my desktop.

If there are a plug to connect them on your Mac i cant see why they shouldent work. Just connect them to the audio-out plug on your Mac


Good luck to you

Speakers wont work when i hook them up to my laptop ,but work fine when hooked up to my desktop pc...What could i do to fix this?


Your laptop needs to be able to send digital audio. Double-click your Volume Icon, click on Options/Advanced Controls (if it's available). Under there is a checkbox to enable 'Digital Only' mode. If Advanced Options is grayed out, you'll have to use analog external speakers...

Re: Boston digital BA735. Hum with or without input signal.


Hmmm I just got the same problem. They worked fine on my old Dell desktop but when I plugged them in to my son's old Dell PC (maybe 1 year newer than my old one) they all hum like crazy - as you say even if it's just the power plugged in and nothing else. Yes it does have the original power supply. I get no music (but still it hums) from digital out/in but when I switch to analog out/in I hear the music and it still hums, plus the sound is distorted. Wierd.

I have boston acoustics BA735 speakers that I want to hook up to my new computer, but I need to plug them into a usb port. the speaker cable only has a standard plug. Are there converters available?


doesn't your computer have a standard audio output port?

I'm fairly sure it must have one......if not, try using the Headphone plug.

sometimes it's a dual output.......stereo/headphones.

I have a set of boston ba735 speakers that i got with my gateway computer and i tried hooking them up to my mac computer and i'm not getting any sound


Correct me if I am wrong but these are USB speakers and as such need the correct drivers / software to run them.

USB speakers can be very finicky to set up and use but once working are usually quite good.

They are not my preference. Real speakers are so much better and can be placed to take best advantage of the sound they produce whereas USB ones cannot.

Will my boston accoustics ba735 speakers work with a dell laptop?


We also have a Gateway Computer purchased in 2001 with the Boston Digitanl BA735 speakers. We ran into a similar problem when we upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, with no sound after the upgrade. After consulting with computer stores and "Geek Squad", it was finally determined that Windows XP set the speakers for analog not digital. Once that was reset, our sound returned. Hope this works for you.

Boston Acoustic BA735 digital CD quality 16 bit/44.1khz speakers


Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Dell laptops come with a proprietery s-video dongle. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers.

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.

BA735 for Mac?


If your speekers have a analog input. Next to digital. Like a standard stereo phone plug. 6b71de2.jpgYou can buy a cable from a generals electronic store. But if not. You will need to do some very careful soldering to re-instate the missing analog component. See http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/153/t846623-modify-ba735-for-analog-input/ I did this and it works well. You need a soldering iron and some solder and a magnifiying glass because the components are very small.
