You definitely do. However, I recommend that you hook up your pc line out to the auxiliary input on the Es2. You only need an rca interconnector which has a 3.5 mm male stereo plug (hooks into pc line out jack).

I hooked up the ion LP Dock to an analogue amplifier (which is hooked up to my LCD tv and outputs the sound through some bookshelf speakers) via the Phono input connections as per the instruction manual...

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

BUT, modern turntables like your come with their own preamplifiers, so they MUST be connected to a garden variety Line Level input like AUX (anything BUT Phono or it will overload).

"LP DOCK also has a line-level output for connecting to any home stereo with an AUX input"

As far as WHY your amplifier isn't making da music, that could be whole 'nother problem.

We'd need more details about it and the speakers to go there.

I have a Vizio Flat Screen TV. I have speakers in all the rooms in my home. Can the TV be hooked up to the speakers with any success?


yes, the TV can be hooked to the speakers, but you will be needing a receiver (amplifier).

Check your TV, if you will have any earphone input space. If you find it on the TV, then it means job is half done.

Get a 3.5mm to RCA cord, connect the 3.5mm part to your TV's earphone space (if any), then connect the RCA part (Red and White) to input (Aux/Video/CD in etc) at the back of your receiver (amplifier) or deck, select the input (Aux/Video/CD in etc) on your sound system (receiver/amplifier) and sound should come out of the speakers.

Also, you can use this same method, but this time with a different wire which is RCA to RCA.

Connect the RCA (Red and white, to "Output" or 'Out' at the back of the TV, then connect the other part to the "Input" of your sound system (receiver/amplifier).

Good luck.

Need a diagram to hook my Bose CinemaT speakers. When I hook it directly to the tv no problem but can't figure out how to hookup my reciever and CD player to work also? Help Please

You'd be better off hooking the speakers to the RECEIVER'S speaker outputs, THEN hooking your TV audio output to an unused receiver input, such as AUX. The signals from your receiver cannot reach the TV; thus your CD player and radio will not play through the speakers if the speakers are hooked to the TV. All receiver INPUTS are designed to accept the same signal level; thus, you can use any input for your TV audio, such as Aux, DVD, CD, etc. Just remember which input you're using for the TV audio, and everything should work fine. Almost all receivers have an AUX input; hopefully yours also has a dedicated CD input to avoid confusion. The you simply select the AUX input to hear your TV through the speakers.

Brookstone Wireless Outdoor Speaker with Bose 123 System Problem

AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.

Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA

The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!
