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)
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.
ok from the information you have presented i believe you have to get a male to male adapter for your sub woofer then plug it into your speaker in on the back of our comp and into your analog in on your speakers, please provide more information if this doesn't work and i would be happy to assist you further
I have a Boston Digital BA735 Subwoofer. I would like to connect it to my current system. I running on Microsoft XP, Dell Latitide 610.Can I do this? If so, do I need a different audio cable connector cord?
Is your question :"Is it possible to connedct a set of speakers to my PC"? Yes it is possible. Anything is possible, my friend!
Your speakers look like mine though I have not checked the model number. If you have a mini banana stereo plug on the speakers, plug it into the same coilor jack on your PC. You will need a power supply of appropriate sized. connect the little speakers as appropriate and you should be in business.
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.
