Connecting an audio/video device

You might already have a high-definition DVD player, cable/satellite box or some other audio/video device connected to your TV. To have the sound from that device play through your Bose® system, you will need to make audio connections and keep the current video connections as you have them.

There are three possible output connections on your audio/video device.

1. Analog

2. Digital coax, also may be marked as S/PDIF

3. Digital optical

If your device has all three options, choose either digital coax or optical for the best audio quality.

You must now make your audio connections from the same connected device to the Bose media center.

Making an analog connection

On the back of your audio device, insert one end of the RCA plugs into the AUDIO OUT jacks. The jacks are white for left and red for right

Insert the other end of the RCA plugs into the AUX Audio IN jacks on the Bose media center. The jacks are white for left and red for right

on the bose remote, press aux. the lifestyle® display will show "aux" as the selected source of audio

Turn on your audio device, press play and turn the volume up to approximately 90% of its capacity

on the remote, use volume + and - to control the overall sound of your product

Note: If another device occupies the AUX input, use any other available input on the back of the Bose media center and select that source.

Making a digital coax connection

On the back of your audio device, insert one end of the digital coax cable to digital AUDIO OUT. This might be marked as S/PDIF

Insert the other end of the digital coax cable into the black AUX Audio IN jacks on the Bose media center.

on the bose remote, press aux. the lifestyle® display will show "aux" as the selected source of audio

on the remote, use volume + and - to control the overall sound of your product

Note: A digital signal will override an analog signal when connected to the same input.

Making a digital optical connection

Some optical cables come with a protective cover. Make sure to remove this cover before making your connections.

On the back or your audio device, insert one end of the optical cable to the "Optical Out" or "Digital Audio" output

Insert the other end of the optical cable into the OPTICAL INPUT jack on the Bose media center.

Turn on your TV and choose the correct input to see the Bose system menu on your TV screen. You will need to have a video cable connected from the Bose system to the TV in order to proceed

on the remote, press settings

press tune down to highlight "system setup," then press enter to confirm your seletcion

press tune down to highlight "optical source"

press seek forward to select the desired source input (aux, vcr, tape or tv)

once you have made your selection, press exit to leave the menu
