No. You would need some kind of audio out connections on the back of the media center. The only audio outs it has are the
Acoustimass® Module – SPDIF connector.

Unless you were to hook up an amp before the Bose media center. In other words, you could run your TV to another amp's line in. You would hook up additional speakers to this other amp, then run audio line outs to the line in of your Bose media center. Some stereo amps have a line out or record/tape out, it is from here that you would run the cables to your Bose media center line ins. The disadvantage to doing it this way is you would have to plug all your media devices (dvd, tv, etc) into this amp first and your Bose remote wouldn't let you switch between devices. If your media devices you have offer digital audio, then you would want an amp that also offers a digital out for the best sound. Otherwise you will end up with analog out from this amp to the Bose media center and thus lose any of the digital signal information like surround information. So there isn't much point in doing this. If your gonna get an amp that has all the digital in's and out's, you might as well just use it with new speakers and forget the Bose system you have.

Can I hook up an audio technika 120 USB to my Bose 321 system? And will I need an additional amplifier?


The answer is not only yes, but hell yes. My question is why wouldn't you have done this yet? There is an AUX input on the back of the 3-2-1. Plug the Red/White cables into there and select AUX from the remote or front panel of the 3-2-1 and you're listening to albums! Enjoy.

Is it better too hook up a optical audio cable from a PS3 to a bose 321 series III or to hook up the optical audio cable from my TV audio out to the bose 321 system?


Hello, its always better to go the shortest route this would be ps3 right to the bose there are too many menu variables ,circuits, that would be involved if you involve the tv output as well. that theory applies to video as well always go directly from source to load without any additional switches (circuits) when possible.

If it's an original 321 system (series 1) then it has an audio output on the back. (via RCA jacks) You would still need an amp or receiver to connect the speakers to.. (unless they're powered speakers)
If it's a 321 series II or 321 series III- it does not have an audio output.
If the system has a DVD tray right in the middle of the media center, then it's a series 1.
Otherwise, you'd have to get a 1/8 splitter to come from your Mac's headphone output. (still- you will need an amp/receiver or powered speakers to have both 'rooms' playing the same thing from your computer)

I'd like to add two speakers to my older 4 pin Bose 321 system. Can I buy adaptors to split off the two small front speakers to run two additional speakers to the rear of the room?


is there any connection for 2 more speakers?
if not there is no real way to make it surround sound . however you can double up the speakers with the front ones.
but you loose sound quality and it wont be true surround sound. but you can give it a try

hello my frien let me tell you that the system wont accept more speakers or diferent loads per ohm if the total load says 16 ohms by channel thats the total can handle so if you ad more speakers the system turns off before it burns or or have a severe damage........saludos
