Boston Acoustic BA735 digital CD quality 16 bit/44.1khz speakers
Boston Acoustic BA735 digital CD quality 16bit/44.1khz speakers don't work with my Gateway NX570x notebook with Sigma Tel sound card and windows Vista. Is there something that can be done to make these work with the notebook?

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.

Many of the new sound cards and especially sound cards on OEM do not support digital speakers without buying additional connectors. (Not sure why. I have these same great speakers for years and they are wonderful.
- Check if your sound card ha an SPDIF connection option.
- Check the speakers in the device manager to see if you can toggle the "digital" option.
- I also have read that some versions of the BA 735 have an analog option on the back of the subwoofer if you need to bypass digital. (mine don't, so I don't know if this is accurate)
if they have a usb connection or a 3.55mm plug plug it into the required outlet then control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustmentsthere or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers hope this helps
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 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...
you can connect the BA7500G speakers to a regular digital coaxial output by using a cable that has an RCA plug on one end and a stereo minijack on the other. However, the pole of the RCA must connect to the tip of the stereo minijack and the shield of the RCA must connect to the middle ring on the stereo minijack. Also set your soundcard to output at 16bit and 48khz.
