Those speakers were originally supplied with Gateway computer system that had sound cards with digital outputs. While some versions had analog and digital sound inputs, most often the speakers had digital input only. The on-board sound in the eMachines is analog output only, so the speakers are most likely not compatible with your computer. If you want to use those speakers, you will need to locate a PCI sound card with digital output.

    It's a matter of the output from the computer's sound card (built-in) being incompatible with the speaker input. The card is sending out analog sound wile the speakers are expecting digital input. Downloading a driver won't help because that doesn't fix the root problem. You need to get speakers designed for analog input, or a sound card with digital output. As it stands now, your computer just can't use those speakers.

I have old Boston BA735 digital speakers that I am trying to get to work with a new HP PC. Do I need drivers? There are 6 places to plug in speaker cables on the back of the PC. Which ones do I use?


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)

Since your using a MacBook there is no option for this Pci Digital Sound Card.

I have a Dell Inspiron 630m computer with these speakers


Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Use the dongle that came with your Inspiron. 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 no sound but sound card works in analog mode.


this should be pretty easy to diagnose. both speakers have mini jacks right? if so, and you plug one pair of speakers in on say, port "A" and you get sound then if you plug your other speakers in on port "A" and you don't get any sound, the problem is with your speakers.
