Can't I connect acoustimass 6 to a 5.1 DVD player

I have many questions to ask but unfortunately, I couldn't able to get the reply from customer support.
Coming to my questions. I am planning to buy Acoustimass 6 version ( in India it's available).

1. What are the pre-hardware requirements I need to have it as mandatory?
2. I have a LG DVD with 5.1 support (Has Analog output sockets for Front Left, front right, center, sub-woofer, rear right rear left). Will this be sufficient to connect acoustimass to my DVD player.
3. How about smart TV ? I have Sony Smart TV which has only HDMI?

Hi Hiren_Nag, 

 

Welcome to the Community and thank you for your interest in the Acoustimass 6 System. 

 

Our most recent iteration of this system is the Acoustimass 6 V, which features a powered acoustimass module to power the five Virtually Invisible Series II Surround Speakers. The Acoustimass 6 can only take bare-wire inputs from a receiver or source, meaning that your DVD player and Sony Smart TV will likely need to first output to a receiver first, and then bare-wire output audio to the Acoustimass system for playback.

 

You can find the current Owner's Manual for the Acoustimass 6 V by clicking HERE for further product information, including the setup process.

 

I hope this is helpful, and please reach out again if there is anything else that we can help with!

 

Kind regards,

 

Andy - Community Support

Thank you Andy! There are lot of receivers out there in the market and I am kinda confused as to which brand/specification I need to go for. Do you know which reciever or the specification of receiver will work for acoustimass 6?

Thanks for posting back Hiren_Nag!

 

That is correct, there are a multitude of available third-part receivers on the market. The full technical specifications can be found within the Owner's Manual for the Acoustimass 6 V, but a notable point for compatibility is that the system is compatible with A/V receivers and amplifiers rated from 10 to150 watts per channel, rated from 4 to 8 ohms. 

 

Kind regards,

Got the specification details. But as a reference may I know which brand will be compatible ( I know you have sent the specification but still just wanted to be on safe side)?
Thanks again!
Hiren Nag.

I doubt anyone from Bose is going to recommend a specific brand receiver.  Just get the one you like that falls within the required specifications.  A lot will depend on your budget and desire to "future proof" your purchase for when and if you ever decide to use a speaker system other than Bose.  Or, if you ever want Atmos speakers, etc.

Hi All! 

 

Thanks for posting! 

 

We will not be able to recommend a brand as they are not manufacture by Bose. As long the specifications are the same you should be fine. 

 

Have a great day!
