Question about Altec Lansing ADA995 Speaker
I have used these surround sound speakers with my Dell Computer for years and they have always sounded great. I recently purchased a new HP Pavillion Slimline and how the speakers don't work with the new computer. (no immediate pluging) I saw an ad on TV where you can add your surround sound to your TV. Is is possible to add these speakers to the Sony TV with some kind of adapter? Currently there are no plugs in the new TV to accommodate the plugins. If this is not possible, is it possible to use an adapter to plug into the HP Pavillion Slimline? I hate to see this speaker set go to waste.
I was in the same situation you are in when I got my new computer. Provantage sells this little adapter: http://www.provantage.com/logitech-970150-0403~7LGTC96V.htm
The only problem is, since the genius who made this model didn't put an external volume control on the speakers, there is no way to control the volume. they operate at full blast. which is, as you know, heart stopping. to combat this problem i used another adapter I found at radio shack(http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103710) and plug it into my tv's headphone jack.
hope this helps. If you find another way to control the volume PLEASE let me know.
