Subject: Re: Cheap/good digital-audio Boston Acoustics BA735

Have you ever heard of a place called "Google"?

I typed in BA735 and within 1 minute found out it has an S/PDIF input. I
quote:

3-Pieced Subwoofer & Satellite Digital Speaker Set by Boston Acoustics

The BA735 is the Boston Acoustics most compact, powered desktop audio
system. Incredibly portable and affordable, the 735 sacrifices nothing when
it comes to delivering high-fidelity audio. In a close environment, like at
a computer workstation, the BA735 offers an intimate and defined sound even
at low volumes. Crank the volume however, and you'll wonder how such a
room-filling sound can come from such a compact system. Color: Beige. Brown
box.

Specifications: Frequency response: 55-20,000Hz(+/-3dB); Maximum sound
pressure level: 100dB (0.5m); Crossover frequency: 200Hz; Subwoofer: 7-3/4 x
6 x 6-11/16inches/ Bass driver: 4-1/2 inches. Satellites: 3-1/4x3-1/4x3-1/2
inches.

System Requirements: Digital output sound card; Digital output must be a
3.5mm mini-din digital out; Available power outlet.

Contents: Subwoofer; Satellite speakers with stands; 120VAC, 60Hz power
supply; 3.5mm mini-din to digital in cable.

| David said "Kinda makes me wonder if it uses S/PDIF."

| Naturally I tried to determine that by going to the Boston Acoustics web
| site. BA735 systems aren't directly listed, but I found their
| search-string entry box where I entered "BA735." That displayed a link
| described as "Gateway Computers." Clicking on that link displayed a
| blank screen. This reference page also asked if that link addressed what
| I wanted to learn. I answered no, hoping it would give an opportunity to
| request information about BA735 digital audio standards compliance. But
| it just produced a survey "Thank you" screen. That's why I asked if
| anyone has tried connecting them to their Archos. If we knew they are
| S/PDIF compliant, we'd already know if they'll plug and play with our
| Archos units.
|
| Hopefully some subscriber has access to a BA735 audio system.
