      Answer

      Most modern televisions will not have powered output jacks for speakers. For that reason, you'll want a traditional a/v receiver to connect your devices (tv, cable box, dvd player, etc.) in addition to the 201 speakers. Here are the main specifications to look for in a receiver to ensure compatibility: 10-120 W per channel, 8 ohms.

      Hello Shruti, the Bose 201 Series V speakers are engineered to work with amplifiers outputting 10-120 watts per channel at 8 ohms. We'd recommend speaking with the manufacturer of your receiver for specifications and compatibility with 8 ohm speakers. Thank you and have a great day!

      If the receiver is equipped to handle 4-8ohms and not more than 150 watts per channel, this would be a good bookshelf speaker.
