Question about Altec Lansing ADA 885 Computer Speakers
Can I use my Altec ADA 885 speaker system with input from my TV? I want to be able to switch back and forth between the TV and computer through a selector switch. Any reason why I can't do this?
Yes but you will not enjoy all the features of the Altec ADA 885 speaker system and if the TV's features will allow you.
Most TV's do not have audio out and if ever they do, chances are that it will only be left/right. Your Altec ADA 885 speaker system is capable of getting multiple inputs other than just left & right; main, front, surround & S/PDIF.
Hardware wise, the standard audio connector to the audio outputs of your PC are baby phone plugs, while those in the TV are RCA. If ever you will push through, you would need to get hold of a stereo RCA to baby phone cable. Am not sure if the yellow dongle cable that came with your package is long enough.
Additionally, here is a link to the normal installation instructions for an Altec ADA 885 speaker system should you be interested.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
