Good all around
gave me plenty of power and brought out good sounds in my system at lower volumes
A:AnswerThe Bose SA3 amplifier needs to be connected to a compatible Bose Lifestyle System in order for the auxiliary input to be functional. When set up properly, you could connect a 3.5mm to RCA cable from the audio output on your computer to the AUX input on the amplifier. The amplifier will automatically detect an incoming signal on this input and turn on out of standby mode.
If you do not own a Bose Lifestyle System, you will want to consider another manufacturer’s receiver or amplifier to be used in this application.
We recommend consulting an A/V installer regarding compatibility and proper installation of a wall-mounted volume control with this amplifier.
Thank you for your questions!
