Question about Boston Acoustics BA735 Computer Speakers
Assuming you are using digital BA735.
Some Dell computers come with a proprietary s-video dongle. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers. If not then you can buy a cheap device that can give you digital out unless you want to mess with third party drivers and enable digital out over SPDIF on your computer.
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.
