Question about Boston Acoustics BA735 Computer Speakers

Boston Acoustic BA735 no sound on new hp computer

These BA735's came with my old Gateway which I recently replaced. I now have an HP Pavilion Elite. I have the RCA cord plugged into the digital output on the tower but can't get any sound. When checking the control panel I do not see these speakers listed which leads me to believe I need to download drivers and install. Am I correct? The operating system on the HP is Vista windows, The old Gateway was running a different version of windows.

All you need to do is download and install the Vista drivers from Boston Acoustic. You should then be all set. Hope this helps.

CAN I USE BA735 ON HP 890T COMPUTER ?


Im not seeing a model 890T for HP, but the main issue with this particular set of speakers seems to be where they were purchased. If they were purchased through Gateway and are the version with digital input, you will need to make sure that you have a digital soundcard in the computer. However, if they were not and have an analog input, they should work just fine with any computer.

Had a old Gateway computer with Boston Digital BA735 speakers using XP. Upgrade computer to a N68PV-GS motherboard and have analog output for the speakers. How to I get the old speakers to work?


You can't, at least not with the integrated sound. The speakers only take digital input, and the Gateway had a digital sound card installed. That new board of yours has PCI slots available. You might be able to use the old Gateway sound card. I've never tried it, but XP might recognize the card and have native drivers. If not, you might be able to find XP drivers at Gateway's site. Otherwise all you'll be able to do is buy a new set of analog speakers.

Boston Acoustic BA735 wont play on my computer


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?

Will my boston accoustics ba735 speakers work with a dell laptop?


We also have a Gateway Computer purchased in 2001 with the Boston Digitanl BA735 speakers. We ran into a similar problem when we upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, with no sound after the upgrade. After consulting with computer stores and "Geek Squad", it was finally determined that Windows XP set the speakers for analog not digital. Once that was reset, our sound returned. Hope this works for you.

Boston Acoustic BA735 digital CD quality 16 bit/44.1khz speakers


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.
