I lost my boston acoustics ba735 software from my old computer and is there any other way that i can set them up on my new computer


The BA735 system used to come with some models of Gateway computers as part of the package. Unfortunately, they are a digital speaker and had to be used with the sound card provided so they would work. They won't work with the analog output that most computers provide. No special driver software is necessary, but you need a digital output from the computer.

Depending on the sound circuitry of the new computer, digital output may be available. Some higher-end systems with integrated sound may offer it, and it's often available on expansion audio boards that you can install in desktop systems. Check the audio settings menu in your system to see if digital output is provided.

These speakers sounded pretty good. Several times when people who had these systems upgraded, I installed the sound card from their old Gateways into the new computer so they could keep using the speakers. That doesn't work with the latest versions of Windows, though, because the hardware isn't compatible. But if you can find a digital audio source they'll still work for you.

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 speakers not working


They say they push digital, but I dont think its what your speakers neet. They require DIGITAL-OUT on the sound card.

Boston BA735 Digital Speakers Dont Work on new Dell computer


You can try to install the sound card--Vista should pick it up, but you'll still probably have to have a driver disk for it.

Make sure that you not only power it down, but you unplug the power cord and press the on button to discharge any stored charge.

When you insert the card, be sure that you'v touched off on either the powersupply or the frame to the hand that has the card in it. Then insert the card. (A static electricity spark can be 20k volts, low amps, but it can destroy both the card and the motherboard if you aren't careful.)

The XP driver might be a problem, but check for the numbers on the card before putting it in and do a search. You may find some additional Vista drivers.

There are a couple of after-market cards that use a digital out, you just have to look for the right connector.

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.

I have XP Prof. installed as os. Hope this helps... by the way 1/8 is the plug that is on the opposite end of your ba735 digital cable that plugs into your computer, just need a cable with that plug on both ends...
Good Luck!
